JOURNAL OF SUPERHERO RESEARCH (2013). Vol 13 Vol 547. pp328-3332 doi:23.1724/SR20130328 pdf download We demonstrated that the presence of superpower (SP) protein cleavage is responsible for the diversity of superpowers in a tissues-specific manner within The Incredibles family. This cleavage event produces two fragments, 135 kDa and 85 kDa, without a loss of peptide, as confirmed by Edman degradation. We speculate that the 85 kDa protein fragment is involved in the generation of superpower. Key words: Superpower phenotype, Supers, Supers Relocation Program, The Incredibles. INTRODUCTION The study of humans with unusual intrinsic superpowers, or Supers, has been an ongoing effort…

After she hangs up her vampire cape at the lab, she likes to read, run, bike, and indulge in the making (and devouring) of real human food. Annika Sun is a MSc student at the Luciani Lab and Warnock Lab studying diabetes. This is a perfect research area for her as she believes that she may be able to cure herself one day when she eventually succumbs to hyperglycemia from all her sugary snacks.
