    by the way, am i completely imagining this from AS, or do lysosomes play a role in cell autolysis? i seem to remember learning that they did. but none of my books mention it so it was probably either a lie or io remembered it wrong

    On a more practical note - goddammit, I can't find more picture hooks ANYWHERE! I'm sure Rymans sold them last year. Have resorted to unbent paper-clips. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Would Staples do them?
    My friend got some from one of the picture shops on King's parade, but unfortunately not sure which one...

    I had the circulation cut off to my arm for 40 mins this morning for a Neuro practical. That was nice. It was really weird, started off getting crazy pins and needles, then my hand went really cold and my arm went all blotchy and blue - it looked like it had been dead and in a river about a week! By the end of it, I couldn't feel anything at all, and couldn't move any of my forearm or hand muscles, even though it felt like I was lifting them, they just weren't having any effect at all. Then when they took the cuff off...owwwieeeee!

    The art shop on kings parade that's between the newsagent and the natwest sells them, you need to ask though because they keep them under the counter. Like 40p each or so.

    He did seem less than enamoured with us (for us read "me", Irishmen can easily outdo two tiny English girls and a random Chinese guy in the shouting stakes)...

    We have to go and meet some random people sometime and ride the Jesus horse

    Good old apoptosis! Katie worked for a dude who was doing a lot of research into that at Southampton. She's only a humble microbiologist now though!

    are you 100% sure this is not one of the many "a level lies" we are discovering? it seems slightly odd it isnt in any of the 3 undergrad textbooks i have so far consulted

    They do man.. It's just a bit more complicated than they allow us to find out at A-level

    well it was one of the four major functions of lysosomes... It is probably so trivia l that its not mentioned. Lysis means 'to split'.

    Pol, how is apoptisis pronounced? apop - tisis or a-poptisis?

    well explain it then :mad:

    Anyone know how cellulose synthase uses UDP-glucose as its substrate but then in synthesising cellulose obviously is just beta glucose ( i feel iam making as much sense as camford on a bad day) >.. does it just lop it off? does the UDP, what ever it may be (my guess is uracil diphosphate, but i have no idea) do anything especially impportant?

    does anyone else wish unis had more of a say in what was on a level syllabi?

    see, like autolysis isnt even in the index here. i know to look up apoptosis, but we didnt even do apoptosis at a level, so a lot of people wouldnt! we just called it autolsysi
