Im not sure why they dont clone from a baby animal. Maybe they do. Or maybe theres a genetic reason why its more diffic...

Thats why it causes an increase in phosphorylation of wee1 and cdc25 as its specific for these serine/threonine phosphatases. DO YOU NEED EXPLAIN WHY ITS SPEC...

Do you mean Adrenoleukodystrophy? Its a genetic disorder so you are born with it. Although the childhood form is more severe there is also an adult-onset form. So I dont see how you can avoid it. Do a search on google for it if you want to know more.
