"Phenylalanine"

Parody Written by:

Rice Cube & Watt Daddy

The Lyrics

How do you prevent an SH2-domain containing protein from being recruited to a partner protein? Tyrosine-to-phenylalanine!
In the lab where I did work
On some SH2 proteins
And they liked to bind real tight
To some phosphotyrosines

So to stop them from binding
With a kit from Stratagene
DNA we did mutate
Now it's phenylalanine

Tyrosine into phenylalanine!
Phenyalanine! Phenylalanine!
They can't bind to phenylalanine!
Phenylalanine, phenylalanine!

So we mutate four or more
Interactions nevermore
Nobel Prizes on our way!

(Trumpets)

Now we'll star in Nature Magazine!
Phenylalanine, changed from tyrosine!
Should we worry about the threonines?
That would be obscene! Phenylalanine!

(PCR it, Dr. Rice Cube, PCR it!
We got a band here, sir!
Bacteria! Bacteria!
Alright, transfect!
Success! Success!)

As we finish our IPs (lysis please!)
Every Western blot (Western blot) for PLC (PLC!)
SH2 (SH2) cannot be seen (can't be seen!)
With our phenyl (phenyl) alanine (alanine HAHA!)

Now we'll star in Nature Magazine!
Phenylalanine, changed from tyrosine!
Should we worry about the threonines?
That would be obscene! Phenylalanine!

Tyrosine into phenylalanine!
Phenyalanine! Phenylalanine!
They can't bind to phenylalanine!
Phenylalanine, phenylalanine!

You've turned those "mean old acids" into something truly special! I'd give you a standing ovation, but my 'chair configuration's' resisting that kind of action... No worries--sitll folding you fives from home!

Wouldn't it be more fun to ethylate that to PEA, the "love molecule"? ... then methylate at the alpha position, and .... Nice to see TT isn't the only egghead on the site. Vote: 22B.
