  • Hi 3217578, Addition of images or diagrams would make the page more interesting and easier to absorb the information. Other than that it is informative but it would be better if you used more subheadings, or dot points within the text. E.g. in the second paragraph of intro you have; 1. 2. 3. but all in the one paragraph, maybe break it down...... Also, maybe add a bit more on the function and a bit on history/ current research?

I've got to say, its a little sparse. You need to be more specific with your function, and describe the mechanisms etc... referencing is almost entirely absent and the content is overall very breif... I'm happy to talk this through with you if you'd like.--Peter Kehoe 12:51, 21 May 2009 (EST)

(Reviwer B):

Just some small grammatical errors you've missed:

  • "Protein transport between compartments within cell is achieved through coat vesicles" there's amissing the in this sentence.
  • "It is consists of a coatomer protein" I think there is an extra is in this sentence.
  • "Therefore, are involved in endocytosis of materials to the cell nucleus" I think there is a missing they in this sentence
  • Also, to make things easier to read, perhaps seperate out the "three different coat vesicle 1" which you have numbered. It may look better if you tile them vertically rather than have them run horizontally as you have.
  • you have not explained what "VSNARES" stands for. You have quite a few acronyms on your page, perhaps a glossary section is a good idea?

C: Hi, So far i've picked up on a couple of spelling mistakes such as "plasma membrance". Alot of your grammar needs to revised too. Perhaps copying your work into word and running spellcheck could be an efficient way to avoid this, its the easiest way too. the information on your page is just too brief, you need to add ore to demonstrate that you have a vast understanding of your project. You could perhaps talk more about its role and link it to your group project. A picture for the structure of COP1 would be helpful as well.

  • The structure part is good. I think you can insert some images to expain a bit more about the strcutre. It would be good to talk more about the function.
  • It is important to discuss some current research about this protein. So putting some current reasech is a good idea.

Lecture 4-

What I found interesting about the nucleus and did not know, is that is had a double nuclear envelope. I also found it interesting that the outer envelope is continuous with the endoplasmic reticulum

Lecture 5-

I find it difficult to understand how the proteins being transported out of the cell know where to go, and how to get there?!

Lecture 7-

Apoptosis is a cellular process which requires lots of energy from mitochondria (produces ATP ie energy).

Lecture 8-

N-CAM: Neural cell adhesion molecule.

Ng-CAM: Neuron glia cell adhesion molecule.

L-CAM: A neuronal cell adhesion molecule of the L1 protein family?

I-CAM: Inter-cellular adhesion molecule

Lecture 10-

Stratum spinosum is the layer between the basal and granulosa layer. The cells of the stratum spinosum synthesize intermediate filaments. The filaments help support and resist abrasion of the skin.

Lab 6-

I found that the phenotype of the control B35 cells differed markedly from the Tm4 over-expressing B35 cells in that the control there were overall many more cells. There were nearly 4 times as many stumped cells in the wild type, and about 2 times as many prolonged and stringed. Also, there were no observed pygnotic cells in the Tm4 ever-expressing B35, however there were a few in the wild type. The over-expression of Tm4 may have led to the inhibition of cell formation, or of cells undergoing mitosis (division). This leads to the observed decrease in overall cell numbers.
