As an earth goddess in Sumerian mythology, Ki was the chief consort of An, the sky god. In some legends Ki and An were brother and sister, being the offspring of Anshar ("Sky Pivot") and Kishar ("Earth Pivot"), earlier personifications of heaven and earth.

By her consort Anu, Ki gave birth to the Anunnaki, the most prominent of these deities being Enlil, god of the air. According to legends, heaven and earth were once inseparable until Enlil was born; Enlil cleaved heaven and earth in two. An carried away heaven. Ki, in company with Enlil, took the earth...
In molecular cloning and biology, a Knock-in (or Gene knock-in) refers to a genetic engineering method that involves the insertion of a protein coding cDNA sequence at a particular locus in an organism's chromosome.. Typically, this is done in mice since the technology for this process is more refined, and because mouse embryonic stem cells are easily manipulated. The difference between knock-in technology and transgenic technology is that a knock-in involves a gene inserted into a specific locus, and is a "targeted" insertion..A common use of knock-in technology is for the creation of disease models. It is a technique by which scientific investigators may study the function of the regulatory machinery (e.g. promoters) that governs the expression of the natural gene being replaced. This is accomplished by observing the new phenotype of the organism in question.The BACs and YACs are used in this case so that large fragments can be transferred...

The measure of bond-tightness between an enzyme and a corresponding enzyme inhibitor..Since blocking an enzyme's activity can kill a pathogen Or correct a metabolic imbalance, many drugs are enzyme inhibitors.. They are also used as herbicides and pesticides.. I first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love... Yes, a profound sense of fatigue, a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I — I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence. I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women, er, women sense my power, and they seek the life essence. I do not avoid women, Mandrake...but I do deny them my essence..How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh?..Competitive inhibitors can bind to E, but not to ES..Enzyme inhibitors are found in nature and are also designed and produced as part of pharmacology and biochemistry..Natural poisons are often enzyme inhibitors that have evolved to defend a plant or animal against Predators..Proteins can also be natural poisons or antinutrients, such as the trypsin inhibitors (discussed above) that are found in some legumes.. An example is ricin, an extremely potent protein toxin found in castor oil abbreviation for the Book of Kings in Judaeo-Christian religious Texts..

Over 5'000 years ago, the craters of X-stinct volcanoes in Arabia were used as reservoirs by farmers for their irrigation water..Dry climate and water scarcity in India led to early development of water management techniques, including the building of a reservoir at Girnar in 3000 BC..Artificial lakes dating to the 5th century BC have been found in ancient Greece.. An artificial lake in present-day Madhya Pradesh province of India, constructed in the 11th century, covered 650 square metres (7,000 sq ft)..In Sri Lanka large reservoirs have been created by ancient Sinhalese kings in order to save the water for irrigation. The famous Sri Lankan king Parākramabāhu I of Sri Lanka stated "do not let a drop of water seep into the ocean without benefiting mankind ".. He created the reservoir named Parakrama Samudra (sea of King Parakrama), which has Astonished archaeologists...'t ever try, to tame a wild cat..You'd just be wastin' your time..Just leave like you found MI..Don't put no cage around me, oh-no, not me..You want a lamb, but I'm a wild cat, If you just keep that in mind I'll let you hug and pet I don't tip Because society says I have to...
