Transgenics anonymous. by Velica Transgenics anonymous. by Velica
Mice are still the best model for mammal genetics and physiology. Small, docile and cheap these little fellas are one of the main reasons why science (specially medical science) keeps advancing so quickly.

Nowadays many labs can generate mice lacking certain genes of interest by simple manipulation of mouse embryonic stem cells. There is a huge array of "mutated" mice strains about.

I thought it would be funny if they got together and discussed their griefs.

(p53 is a very important gene, involved in the development of cancer)

Isn't P53 the self-destruct trigger in a cell, supposed to activate if a cell has gone mutant ,detected by a white-blood immune cell and receives the "commence P53 self-destruct" command from it ?

P53 initiated self-destruct is involved in embryonic development to destroy tissues and even organs that have served their purpose (such as separating the fingers from each other, and even forming the hole that becomes the mouth, not to mention the first pair of kidneys and much of the 2nd pair, leaving us with the third pair.)

i hope, you'll make more bio-geeky cartoons, they're funny *and* informative...
btw: is the freaks of science-series closed? :(

:) thanks.

Well, technically no series is ever closed but I tend to drift away from them. I've been feeling quite uninspired recently...
