comment What is accumulation and release centre of neurohormones?
There are many tissues expressing and secreting neuropeptides and hormones. Certainly the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, but there are clusters of enervating through the brsinstem secreting GLP1, a host of enteroendocrine tissues to name a few. Are there some hormones in particular you are interested in?

comment Could someone Identify this Insect Hive on my Balcony Grill
I suggest killing it with fire. Paper wasps in North America can be very aggressive and their stings hurt.

comment Does our eyeball increase in size as we grow?
Hi Ilan that comment comes across as quite terse, even rude. Such behaviour is not conducive to good discussions on this website and I recommend using constructive criticism in future if you have an issue with an answer. For example, your post is equally without citation regarding growth of the eye (not lens). Let's try to get along.

comment Speed of effective lymphatic drainage?
I vaguely recall an old study looking at lymphatic flow in sheep, and the range being very heterogeneous (virtually no flow at the lower bound). I would agree that, in general, this is a very heterogeneous effect subject to many chemical (hydration, osmotic balance, blood pressure modifying drugs) and physical (cardiovascular tone, posture, activity level) factors.

comment Is Diabetes sex linked disease
I'm not aware of any of the genes implicated in either T1DM or T2DM being sex-linked. However, there is maturity-onset diabetes in the young (MODY, for short). MODY is a subset of T2DM that are caused by an autosomal dominant mutation in one of a few genes (e.g., glucokinase, KCNJ11, ABCC8, INS). These are all rare, heritable forms of T2DM with various responses to traditional T2DM therapies.

comment enzymes that stabilize DNA loops
With specific attention to more efficient ligation (e.g., after restriction enzyme digestion), there are commercial products on the market that use a modified topoisomerase to catalyze such a ligation.
