Would you name your child polymerase?
I have two cousins named Princess and Precious. Polymerase doesn't sound that bad. Polymerase doesn't sound like a porn name such as Princess and Precious.
Some names are ment to stay as scientific names.
No, but I was going to name my dog exonuclease but then I was going to name her Clarus but ended up with Maddie.
Rock on. I'm probably one of the few here that actually knows what polymerase means. I guess those BIO classes had some use after all.
Polymerase sounds better than ligase, at least.
I think I will be naming my kid Robert
I knew a girl who's father was a Nasa Engineer and named her Digitte
I don't know about polymerase. How about Enterokinase?
haha.. i havent had bio classes yet.. what does Polymerase mean?
After many college classes and labs of Bio (even though my major is CS) I can finally unleash my knowledge that I once thought was completely useless
Well, DNA and RNA are partly made up of base pairs which are the "code" for making proteins. The sequence basically goes as follows:
Through this process there are many enymes (specialized proteins) that catalyze the reading of the base pairs.
There are several diffeent kinds of polymerases the ones they taught me were DNA and RNA polymerase.
DNA polymerase is one of the proteins that duplicates DNA. Its job is to match opposing base pairs with each other (for example Guanine with Adenine). Every ump-teenth time DNA polymerase screws up with the matching, so their are other enymes that check it's work so that mutations in the DNA are kept to a minimum.
RNA polymerase is one of the proteins that is responsible in transcribing the DNA base-pairs that code for protein, also known as genes, or exons. It does the same thing as DNA polymerase but makes a RNA template from which ribosome organelles make polypeptide chains of amino acids, also known as proteins (which we are folding right now). The only difference is that instead of duplicating DNA into other DNA, it is decoding the DNA into RNA.
So in summary, Polymerase matches base pairs with opposing nucleotides. I'm sure something is not entirely accurate here, but this is the general idea.
You've made me proud.
Isn't God SMART??? Man I tell ya!!! He got this all down the FIRST time too! - amazing
at least polymerase is better than deoxiribonucleic acid
Well said and quite accurate!
how about gastro
you know Gastritus in full.
I still think the rest of the world is crazy
