I have a background in cell biology research. My previous focus was in studying cancer progression and metastasis. I am now interested in mechanisms of inflammation, from a vascular physiology perspective.

In my free time (not much) I'm an amateur programmer (java, c#, javascript) and cell phone modder (ex winmo, now android).

comment Why does the T7 RNA Polymerase require a reducing environment ie. DTT
@jp89 it is slowly improving, with the PLoS effort, and NIH manuscript requirements, but there is still a long way to go

comment Can methylation from DNA get copied to RNA during transcription?
That evolutionary conservation seems very interesting, but the question is whether it is maintained somehow into the transcribed RNA

@jp89 Thanks for the copy of the paper. I'm not sure though if this is allowed here, since it is breaking copyrights. Anyhow, for now I believe it is still fair use. Regarding to the question, I'd follow citations 59-62 from there (last paragraph on page 2/first on page 3). Cheers.
