It is a map of our metabolic reactions, in particular how we get energy (ATP).  I once knew all those as had to remember them for an A Level Biology exam.  The stupid things we have to commit to memory for exams when in the real world we can just look them up!

Yes, I had to learn most of them as well, especially the citric acid cycle (formerly known as Kreb's cycle) only to forget them just as I walked out the door.

Funny fact: the Krebs bicycle (the Citric Acid and Urea cycles) got translated into "bicicleta de Krebs", which is not bi-cycle as in two cycles but as in the two wheeled bicycle.:suspicious: I think that name even appeared in Lehninger Biochemistry textbooks up to the 3rd edition until it was eventually corrected.   

There's even a fricken' wiki entry for it!

Ooooh pretty, so pretty, colors and lights...Ok, so can someone explain to me what I'm looking at here? 8) (For a minute I thought it was a battle map of "Y Fighters". ;D

Thanks, but I'm still going to go with the Star Wars "Y" Fighter battle plan.... 8)


Thanks for posting this, I like having it all in one place...(Printed this out, and put in on the side of my fridge)

I'm sure it's been posted here before, but I like it:

I had no idea that earthworms live for so long.

I am surprised chickens live thst long - guess those are ones that escape the pot!

They could have had carp at about 70, that was the age of one in London Zoo IIRC. Seems one koi variety can possibly live to 100 in captivity. Just hope carp don't get bored...

Thank you Silver. I have wondered what a chromosome looked like. Now I know that they look like elemental teddy bears.

Where else would we be able to see chromosomes, except on HAF?
