comment Can methylation from DNA get copied to RNA during transcription?
@Garima Kushwaha. Does this count? ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2836557

comment How to clone and sequence a gene transcript of unknown sequence?
Having the hormone sequence does help a bit. While not entirely unbiased, you could try to enrich your sequence by amplifying from a conserved region.

comment Do larger multicellular organisms have an increased risk of mutation and thus cancer?
I would say that the question is more complicated since it really depends on the number of generations of cells. For instance muscle cells rarely get cancel but they also rarely divide.

Also are you sure you're not talking about RAB5c and not RAP?

comment Structure of RAP Antibodies (Specifically RAP-5)
Also be careful with your literature search since there is both the Ras related proteins (RAP1A) and the Receptor associated protein domain (RAP/LRPAP)

comment Structure of RAP Antibodies (Specifically RAP-5)
I'm not sure is RAP5 is an antibody. Seems to be more of a transcription factor.

comment What effect does vortexing have on a fluid sample that simple mechanical shaking does not?
@Maccowell, doesn't mixing liquids of different viscosities describe most lab operation? I would also include suspending non-soluble mixtures.
