Re: DNA Methylation

Thanks- this is really interesting. I couldn't though find a good definition of hemimethylated by doing a Google search. Do you happen to know of somewhere where I could find the definition?

DNA Methylation

How does DNA methylation occur- is there an enzyme that carries out the methylation? How is it regulated?

CLOCK transcription factor and Circadian rhythm?

How does the CLOCK transcription factor sense light and how does it regulate Circadian rhythm for the body?

Re: B12 absorption/intrinsic factor

Once the B12/intrinsic factor complex gets endocytosed (by what kind of cells?) and into the blood stream, where does it go next? When does the complex get broken up?

How is vitamin B12 absorbed by the body?

How does vitamin B12 get absorbed by the body- through the small intestine and to the bloodstream- and once it is in the blood stream, where does it go?

So growing taller is an adaptation to get sunlight? That is very cool.

Re: Plants without sunlight?

So plants can last a really long time without sunlight but eventually will need more?

Basically, how does intrinsic factor work?
