If I Were an Enzyme I’d Be DNA Helicase so I Could Unzip Your Genes T Shirt

Man this shirt makes me feel stupid. I feel like I’d have to take a semester of molecular biology just to get it. I know enzymes help digest food, but I suppose there’s probably a ton more types of enzymes, including those that are related to the study of DNA and figuring out a human’s genes. I do not know what I’m talking about, and I’m afraid my standard 29 second Google search will not alleviate my ignorance. Okay. Okay. I’ll give it a shot.

From the International Society for Complexity, Information and Design (ISCID): “DNA helicase is an enzyme that aids in DNA synthesis by ‘unzipping’ the two strands of a DNA helix so that DNA polymerase can access the DNA to add nucleotides and effect copying.”

Whatever, if you’re a science geek with a little bit of lasciviousness, then you get this If I Were an Enzyme I’d Be DNA Helicase so I Could Unzip Your Genes T Shirt, and you want it.

Snorg Tees loves the science-prurient interest shirts because it is an amazing combination.
