[quote=squaids]Coming from someone who was forced to study pharmacology and biochemistry as part of his degree, it helped us understand the agonist-receptor pathway involving tyrosine kinase receptors. Which basically involves the phosphorylation of tyrosine by taking a phosphate group off of ATP.[/quote]

[quote=Milkncookies]scientists took our insulin producing genes and [b]inserted[/b] them into bacteria to produce insulin, why is this important? isn't it obvious?[/quote]

[quote=SuckMyKiss]yea, now that I think about it, it only has one reason. Therefore, it must not be important at all. Insulin is overrated.[/quote]

No I mean for my project I chose the discovery of insulin is one of the greatest discovery's made by a Canadian. So I need more then one reason why its so important other then saving millions of people.
