Newbie question about the first life

... earthly life needs and that electric discharges in the atmosphere (lightning) helped to put together (also UV radiation, radiation issuing from radioactive elements in exposed rocks and shock waves caused by lightning and meteors, but to a much lesser extent). Monomers started to come together ...

Idea to determine order of assembly of spliceosome

... with a couple of extra steps. 1. Ligate a traget gene to a vector with some kind of bacteriophage RNA-pol promotor 2. In vitro transcription with radioactive nucleotides 3. Extraction of pre-mRNA 4. Run agarose-gel where I can identify and roughly determine the size of my marked RNA 5. Add RNA ...

Re: Molecular gene (genome) concept scientifically untenable

... these species we distinguish as “nuclides”. For example P-31 with 15 protons and 16 neutrons is the stable phosphorus nuclide, which is not radioactive. When the neutron number increases to 17 it becomes P-32 and its property changes. It becomes radioactive. This nuclide is still called ...

Re: UV Reflective Staining

... material" fluroesces un UV? Because uranium glows under UV light . And didn't say 'all' - that's your words. I said it could be 'radioactive materials' (of which uranium is one, uranyl acetate is another - both glow under UV light). Anyway, other potential candidates include phosphorus ...
