Muttertag vergessen?

9. Mai 2011 von Laborjournal

Wer gestern den Muttertag vergessen hat und ein paar Griffe auf der Gitarre beherrscht, kann die enttäuschte Mama vielleicht noch mit einem Vortrag des folgenden „Biologist’s Mother’s Day Songs“ besänftigen:

    Lyrics:

    To make one me you just add
    Half of mom and half of dad
    That is what I once believed
    But I know now that I was wrong
    I got so much more from you mom
    Than just half a set of genes

    I got nutrients and transcription factors
    and nearly everything that matters
    plus my prenatal environment (transplacental inheritance)
    mRNA, mitochondria,
    That back in the day once belonged to ya (theyre cytoplasmic)
    and I just want to thank for supplying them

    Just like two strands of DNA are spirally entwined
    Your nature and your nurture are inspiringly combined
    Scientists remind me and I find that it is true
    Slightly more than half of everything I am is thanks to you

    Mitochondria power my cells
    and they have DNA as well
    Transcription factors modulate transcription
    And since theyre in the cytoplasm
    The eggs the only one that has em
    and sperm I guess they dont have much ambition

    My sex determination gene means that Im a guy
    From you I got my X chromosome, from Dad I got my Y
    X has over a thousand genes, Y has less than 92
    Thats why more than half of everything I am is thanks to you

    I roomed in your womb for nine whole months and never paid the rent
    Your glucocorticoids shaped my hypothalmic development
    I took in your blood and sucked it dry of every nutrient (its gross but true)
    Sometimes I wonder where the time went (where did it go)
    Sometimes I wonder where it went

    I know Ill never understand all you have done for me (Im not that smart)
    But since you paid for college Ill get my B. S. degree (bachelor of science)
    And I have learned its not BS but absolutely true
    Slightly more than half of everything I am is thanks to you.

    „It’s not an even 50/50 split you get a disproportionate share of your DNA coming from your mom. Really important.“ – Robert Sapolsky

    Hört sich besonders schmissig mit voll aufgerissenem Dual Rectifier Roadking an… die Nachbarn in der Reihenhaussiedlung waren begeistert.
