If you grow pubic hair does Pinocchio grow a mustache?

All of you are wrong. Every time Pinocchio gets prostitution, his PENIS grows because he is... well how the **** did I get that image?

#6 to #4 - neco (09/10/2011) [-]
they're useless strings of DNA at the ends to prevent important gene sequences from being destroyed. during cell replication, parts of the ends are lost, so the telomeres are there so nothing important is lost.

responding to the post... telomeres dont actually allow for eternal life, so good job OP for ******* up
#23 to #8 - bouncingbananas (09/11/2011) [-]
In theory they do. Once telomeres get cleaved off, important genes in the chromosomes start being cleaved, which means those proteins won't be synthesised, or they will not have their intended function. As more and more of the chromosome gets cleaved off with each replication, less and less functional protein is produced. This is one of the reasons why we age - Proteins responsible for collagen formation or repair-proteins are not synthesised and therefore our skin becomes wrinkly, our organs go bad, etc.
If telomerase was turned on, it would make telomeres indefinitely... Meaning telomeres would continuously be cleaved, allowing functional proteins to be made.
Basically - Without telomeres, we age and die of body breakdown. With telomeres, our body systems don't breakdown due to a lack of functional proteins.
I am currently researching this topic for my thesis.
Good job OP for not ******* up.

That is true, except telomerase are only turned on in the sex cells and not the somatic cells. It is to prevent sex cells from degrading, and at the same time remove necessary population who had aged past their reproductive years and are still alive.

thats actually not why; telo- is just a greek prefix for end, and the telophase is one of the ending phases of cell replication

Telomeres are a part of your chromosomes that basically control the amount of times your cells can replicate. If our cells didn't have a limit on the amount of times they could replicate we could theoretically live forever. Over replication, however, is what tumors are...

Those jellyfish, once sexually mature, can become a sexually immature jellyfish if they so desire. Nuff' said.

They're also the reason cancer has a one up on us. Cancer cells can replicate an infinite number of times.

Steps to a happy life:

1) Study genetics

2) Become smartest geneticist in the world

3) Create a test tube baby with your knowledge

4) When the baby is ready to be born, take it out of the tube and then knock it out with a small dose of a tranquilizer

5) Operate on the baby and take out the baby's telomeres

6) Let the baby grow up to the age of 18

7) Teach the child your vast expanse of knowledge about genetics

8) Child is as smart as you now

9) Let the child knock you out with a tranquilizer

10) The child should now operate on you to find and dispose of your telomeres

11) Wake up

12) Best friends FOREVER!

Any research happening to see if that 'limit' can be changed? So we COULD live forever?

There must be something I don't know because no-one else is asking.

I guess this is a trolling? maybe?
But over replication is not the over replication of cells, it is a misfire in the job of protein... 113 maybe? I am not sure, I had biology last year. Cancer is actually just a mutation and protein 113 checks all of the replication to see if it is correct.... therefore malfunctioning by missing the cancerous malfunction.

over-replication = corrupted replication.
and no, for such a "cancerous being that thinks for themselves" to keep alive the cells would need to be in proportion and cancer by definition is disproportionate replication.
and even if it wasn't; cancer cells leech nutrients from the rest of the body in order to keep duplicating. your body breaks down all reserves muscles and even vital organs for the cells to keep duplicating.

yeah i think youre right. if some faggot posts a scumbag post then you take note of their name and thumb down everything they post, i dont see why others dont do that :/

Okay, so this water dwelling mammal, called a Hydra, is biologically immortal. It uses Telomeres to do that. But why doesn't it get cancer? Surely humans could do same thing they do to not get cancer from Telomeres
User avatar #52 to #51 - Kushmonster (09/11/2011) [-]
but do you have an idea of what it is?

I imagine that if they did get cancer it would kill them pretty quickly

there's a load of mutations that combine to give you the various forms of cancer. don't blame telomeres for everything
User avatar #54 to #51 - megawatt (09/11/2011) [-]
well, it might be the fact that that looks like a lot more simpler being than the complex body structure of a human..
User avatar #56 to #54 - hehehelol (09/11/2011) [-]
It is a simple being according to wikipedia. Never good with Biology, I dont get how that makes them not get cancer

Okay then. I guess I can do that
#149 to #128 - joeyxxxx (09/11/2011) [-]
no the top of it looks like a face saying I CAME
#67 to #51 - barnaclejoe (09/11/2011) [-]
Because we must have about 10 million times more cells than they do, and so we are 10 million times more likely to get cancer! (I had to post this on my fake account because he blocked my main one because he's a fj hating cunt)
