Hi. Sorry for bringing this up again, if somebody deems it necessary/good they can just delete this thread. If necessary I would even pay somebody to obtain this information; however this seems like a great place to get information like this. In fact, it seems like a spectacularly amazing forum and I'm sorry if I've ever offended anybody on it. It's a beautiful place and I wish I could contribute more to it. I would contribute to it more, if I knew the knowledge that everybody here seems to know...ah well maybe I will have lots of knowledge about biology eventually if I apply myself hard enough. The fact that I've never applied myself in regards to it in the past isn't an excuse for me not applying myself in regards to it in the future, I know. But I was wondering... could somebody give me the information that I want on the cellular mechanisms that control protien packing and/or tell me where I can get that information? I want to know whether (Things regarding the following paragraph below) would require more knowledge of the cellular mechanisms that control protein packing than is currently known. I also want to know who would have that knowledge of cellular mechanisms that control protein packing if that knowledge is known. Finally I might later like to know about stuff relating to some other concepts as a whole. Thanks The paragraph the above questions are in regards to: You would have to get the slime mold gene into the right part of the genome so that it is only expressed in the cells outside the organ in question. Hypothetically this should be possible since certain regions in the genome are turned on and off in different cells, so if you put this gene in a postion which is only transcribed by thse cells there shouldn't be a problem. Now, where things start getting really complicated is when you start talking about ensuring that the connecting protiens are sent to the cellular membrane. I don't know how this could be accomplished, and it sounds pretty difficult. This might require more knowlege of the cellular mechanisms that control protien packing than is currently known. However, I don't rule out the possibility that somebody somewhere in the world knows how to do it. It seems unlikely , though.
