Just learnt about "Crypts of Lieberkuhn" in AQA A2 Biology class today - I have to say, that this is by far the best name for a biological structure ever! It just sounds so dramatic and evil...



No mere mortal has survived the wrath of.....ZE CRYPTS OF LIEBERKUHN !!!!!! AHAHAHHAAHA


Yeah I'm sad..

There is a chemical involved in stimulation of embyological development called 'sonic hedgehog' I kid you not.

I remember having to lean all of those damn chemicals (hedgehog, sonic hedgehog, son of seven etc) and their timing and segmental locations during my first degree... Can't remember them to save my life, and our next system is human development!

I look forward to tomorrow's lecture then ... we're starting embryological development

Meh, It wasn't in a lecture, I just came across it reading Langmans, Embyology. And I wouldn't look forward to it too much, its nasty!

Sonic hedgehog rocks

We came across a Drosophila gene this morning called Mad - which stands for Mothers against decapentaplegia. Drosophila scientists are a bit strange...

There's a cell signalling protein called Frizzled somewhere, can't remember what it does.

I think that flocculonodular lobe is one of my favourite.

Garrgghh! Flash back to 1996! Frizzled is embryogensis too - mebrane receptors that bind Wnt and wnt like proteins.

Actually this whole thread reminds me of a gene on of the older D.Phil students was working on when I was doing my doctorate. Sum1 (Suppressor of Uncontrolled Mitosis).

Her presentations were always funny - 'Sum1 is a component of the fission yeast eIF3 translation initiation complex' 'Sum1 does this' 'Sum1 does that'. On my first day at the Unit, she was giving a 'Work in Progress' presentation, and it took me about 5 minutes to work out that Sum1 was the name of a bloody gene
