comment Why animals like cattles have less sized breast when compared to humans?
Have you ever seen a milk cow (Bos taurus) such as a Holstein with a full udder? They are huge.

comment MIN 6 cell culture
Have you done any research on your own? A quick trip to Google yielded lots of literature references to MIN6 cells, and an image search for its morphology gave plenty of results as well.

comment Inducing Totipotency and Pleuripotency
@InfiniteLight this question is on hold, which means answers cannot be submitted. "How do iPS cells work?" is also far too broad of a question, as well as being unclear. Work how? I'd strongly recommend reading through the help center, particularly the sections on how to ask a good question as well as the section I linked in my comment above. You clearly need to do some background research first, and include that in your questions - where are you starting from, and what exactly you're trying to find out.

comment Why does somebody have to take a live-long medication when diagnosed with hypothyroidism?
TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR FIRST!!! Do not stop any medication without speaking to a physician first, especially something as delicately balanced as thyroid medication. If you are unsatisfied with the explanation, seek a second opinion from another licensed medical professional. And no, the body does not necessarily have a "self-healing" capacity for any particular injury. Can you regrow a lost limb? How about a missing kidney? Do stroke victims always recover 100%? Of course not. Educate yourself about your wife's type of thyroid disease, and you'll see why she needs lifetime therapy.

comment Inducing Totipotency and Pleuripotency
This question is far too broad. From What types of questions should I avoid asking?, "If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much." Entire books have been written on the topic of stem cells, as well as countless review articles, so I'd start there first. iPSC or inducible pluripotent stem cells are a significant area of research interest, and many protocols have been published.

Have you done any research on your own? If so, please edit your question and state exactly what you've done so far, and where you're stuck. If not, please do some and come back with a specific question.

comment What is the term for all of the RNA in a cell at any given time?
@WYSIWYG you're right. My bad :) When I think of transcription, for some reason I only think about protein-coding genes, which are transcribed and processed into mRNA. I'm more protein- and cell-focused than gene-focused, which probably explains why. I forgot that every RNA is coded in the genome. TIL.

comment Do butterflies pass over migration patterns to their offspring?
I think it depends on the route taken and which population you're talking about (western vs. eastern US), but my understanding is that both migration directions are multi-generational, so any individual is not necessarily covering the same ground as its parents did.

comment What is the term for all of the RNA in a cell at any given time?
@WYSIWYG it's not just the transcriptome (mRNA), as there are also transfer RNAs, micro RNAs, ribosomal RNAs, etc.
