    Bonus eye stabbing points for them all having three-letter acronyms and/or the same first three letters (syn…)

    Given the brevity of many of your recent posts, I really think you should reconsider your position on Twitter.

    Thanks dude……Profitin….that’s what I’m gonna call the next new one we discover! It’ll sound like an innocuous actin binding protein, only it will make heaps and heaps of cash when expressed….muwahhhahaha….

    “For what will it Profitin a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”

    Fukyutin? Is that the target of the natural product, suckmycoxin B?

    This is of no consequence whatsoever, but Tim: The link you lunk actually confirms Katharine’s point (reading in part “enzymes, which are defined as catalytic proteins…”) I think it’d be fair to say that ribozymes (“RNA enzymes”) are enzymes in a similar way that koalas are bears. That is, it’s true in a way, but in a different, more important way, it’s not.
