DNA is the only known molecule in the universe that can replicate itself. In your body there are around 550 copies made every second. Each strand of DNA is unique to the person, plant or animal it belongs to.

Deoxyribonucleic Acid is my new favorite word. Just thought you should know.


As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

DNA can't actually replicate itself - it requires a very complex system of enzymes to replicate.

DNA... In French, we say ADN (Acid Desoxyribo Nucleique), whereas SNA stands for Dernieres Nouvelles d'Alsace (Elsac Latest News), a newspaper which I might buy tonight, as I'll be spending a few days there.

My favourite long word is "enterohepatopulmonary migration". or "dostoprimyechatelnost" in russian lagnuage.

As for DNA, it actually doesnt have the ability to replicate itself, it needs a large complex of proteins for its replication, as well as RNA and other biopolymers. And theres one interesting group of proteins called prions (causing the CJD, BSE and other encephalopathies) where some of them are probably able to change other prions to their special shapem causing the disease.

All the DNA stuff, genetic coding issues and all the chemistry around is just amazing! I studied it a lot past few years and I must say I still dont understand how is it possible to work  Smile



there is no coincidence

Tell me about it... that's the part of Biochem that I love(d). Unfortunately, it was over much too fast. One thing I found very interesting is that reverse transcriptases are just as vital to humans as they are to viruses.
