    X-Linked Agammaglobulinemia
    Indeed I should have warned you guys about that. It came up last february. In fact the paper was identical to last February, which is kind of irritating just because I thought that it would be different and more similar to May so I didn't spend as much time on the stuff that did come up in Feb :p: Immunodeficiency/autoimmune stuff always seems to come up and always catches me out. In May it was about Di George syndrome (which I believe was an answer to one of the questions on the page about X-linked Agammaglobulinaemia).

    Stupid febs! I also went to the histology labs by accident before I realised it was in the cruciform Luckily I was early enough to be on time, but I always manage to make a fool of myself and ended up arguing with the security guy at the histology labs cos I was convinced it was in there.

    We don't cover that until 2nd year but my flatmate learnt it by drawing the muscles and using an anatomy colouring book. For muscles I think that's one of the best ways to learn.

    hey, i had to learn them last semester, awful! how i finally clicked with them is realising that their names are to do with their position function: longus=long, brevis=short, radialis=by radius, ulnaris=by ulna, pollicis=thumb, digitorum=fingers, indicis=index finger. Then also the action it carries out...

    so, we can tell it is flexor pollicis brevis because it flexes the thumb (you can tell by its position), and is short.

    sorry if you already knew this, but after this dawned on me it all seemed really easy! x

    I buried my head in the sand and hoped it didn't come up.

    It looks daunting but play with pipe cleaners and it clicks quite easily...like in the picture (T1 is bottom right, and bearing in mind, mine is more complex than it needs to be)

    I guess also that carpi is wrist. So far, I've got that it's either flexors or muscles beginning with p in the anterior bit of the arm and they are all innervated by the median nerve except for flexor carpi ulnaris and flexor digitorum profoundus. Do you know about the posterior part if they all innervated by the median nerve? And in the hand, it's the first two lumbricals and OAF of the thumb innerated by the median nerve?

    I dislike the hand, give me back the auditory system...

    Yeah, what an annoying question. OMG! I put Di George syndrome down for one of the questions - I was just stabbing in the dark really. Hope that's right.

    Apart from that it wasn't too bad. Can't wait for the the SBAs. :awesome:Not really.

    Indeed. That whole page was pretty awful with me. And kinases. It completely went from my head as to what one was, and I wasn't happy! Ah well, all for learning's sake.

    I think Di George syndrome was right.

    Oh yeah, SBAs. I forgot about that. I spent my entire afternoon procrastinating. I just went shopping and earlier I spent an hour in Pret with my flatmates. LAPT time :woo:

    Enzymes that transfer a phosphate group from ATP (usually I think) to some other molecule :p:

    Pretty much what Baby-Boo said: 'A kinase, alternatively known as a phosphotransferase, is a type of enzyme that transfers phosphate groups from high-energy donor molecules, such as ATP, to specific substrates'
