Neither. I'd be Ribosomal RNA (a catalytic non-protien :p ).

So, now that you've started the silly bio talk.... Ever notice how phagocytosis always gets mentioned with pinocytosis? And both processes involve invagination? Maybe I'm just being anal retentive.

So, what happened to that poll of the dorkiness of engineers vs. premeds?
I doubt that poll is necessary anymore now that this thread has opened and people actually responded.

Honestly now.

I like this thread. I'd be the Gal-1-P enzyme and insert myself into my son so he wouldn't have galactosemia anymore :thumbup: all those other galactosemics can go find their own human-turned-enzyme :smuggrin:

Well, they're borth examples of endocytosis, so it makes sense that they're mentioned together.

And I don't think phagocytosis involves invagination... if I recall correctly, it uses pseudopodium to "grab" larger particles in food vacuoles...
