Rule 34: Proteins

(alpha-helix, beta-barrel)
The reader is now encouraged to go out and find real examples of protein Rule 34 in action. There must be some suggestive protein interactions out there somewhere! And we shall never view biochem the same way again...

Inspired by this comment...

PS: In light of Jonathan Eisen's 'competition', shall we hereby coin 'pornome'?

How about genomeome, a set of genomes? "The genomeome of this phylum suggests..."
And then genomeomeome "A comparative analysis of genomeomes in multiple phyla led to the assembly of a larger genomeomeome..." I can keep going. But now we're getting off-topic...


  1. Well, the Rule 34 of Biology seems to be that "If it's a eukaryote, there is pr0n of it", so snails are trivial. Still, kinda hard to beat barnacle sex...
    "Barnacles have the largest penis to body size ratio of the animal kingdom."

    Nice snail pr0n, btw =D
