It’s been quite a while since our last update here. Not a lot of interesting things has happened. Anyway, school starts in a couple of days (boo).. but hello allowance! The Org Tour yesterday has been tons of fun! Thank you to everyone who made everything possible! Here’s one of the personalized paper bags we made. You get one of these babies if you buy one of our products at our booth. :)

fuckyeahmolecularbiology:

T cells are amazing white blood cells that play a crucial role in cell-mediated immunity. They can be divided into several categories - notably helper, cytotoxic, memory, regulatory, and natural killer (NK) - and their primary role within the immune system is to search out and destroy both invading pathogens and abnormal cells. Helper T cells also help to regulate the immune response.
The image above features a cytotoxic T cell, which destroy abnormal cells (most notably virally infected cells and tumour cells) and are also implicated in organ transplant rejection. Dendritic cells, pictured cyan blue in the photo, constitutively express high levels of both class I and class II MCH molecules - the type of receptor that cytotoxic T cells recognise - making them extraordinary potent activators capable of stimulating even “naive” T cells that have never encountered an antigen.

The two-week long and stressful preparation for the Earth Hour Event had definitely paid off. It’s a redundant phrase but it surely does fit! ;)

The venue started gathering a small crowd as the sun slowly started to set. The stage was a total eye catcher with it’s simple yet very modern design. A jam session with bands from Xavier University’s Sound Table killed time before the program proper. The program officially started at around 7:30pm. There were a lot of dancing and singing from tribes and groups all the way from different parts of Mindanao. There never was a dull moment during the program since it was very entertaining. Big shot local politicians and government officers were also spotted during the event.

Super late entry on the Earth Hour Event will be posted soon!! :)

Caddis fly larvae protect their developing bodies by building themselves sheaths of silk and incorporating substances found in their habitats. Artist Hubert Duprate placed a group of Caddis fly larvae into a tank with gold and other precious substances for the larvae to spin into their sheaths.

Thank you to everyone who helped during the Earth Hour Event last March 31, 2012 Saturday held at SM! Although we had to hurdle through a lot of obstacles during the preparation period, we still made it through. :) Thank you so much to Maam Lezlee Escalante from the KKP Office for giving Biophilic Society this wonderful opportunity to participate in such an extravagant event all for the cause of making the world a better place to live in.
