List #34...Protein domains or band names?

I've always thought that many of the names for protein domains would make great band names. Especially for nerdy bands. Some examples:


  1. Zinc Finger
  2. Leucine Zipper
  3. Coiled Coil
  4. Helix Turn Helix

Don't even pretend that you haven't thought about this before, Teresa!

or maybe I am THAT nerdy.

but not as nerdy as a guy i had a meeting with the other day. he was wearing a t-shirt with a pocket in the front, and the pocket had an embroidered collection of cartoons peeking out of it. Seriously, if you are above the age of ten, Tweety Bird has no reason to be on your clothing. Especially if you are a man.
He was a French scientist, but that's no excuse.

The funny thing was that after I read your comment, I was like, "yeaaaa, Zinc Finger would be an awesome band name." and then I read teresa's comment....
Eileen, I fell in love with you just a little bit more after that post =)
Sorry, teresa.

I would be willing to change my mind about the band name if the lead singer is a hot guy and not some dude with a tweety bird shirt!
