Default Re: [Dixonary] Round 3248 HAPTEN results

Just for the record, I was DQ.

Folks,






The correct definition of HAPTEN is #11, "a small molecule which, combined with a carrier such as a protein, can elicit the production of antibodies which bind to it." (Phrasings vary among dictionaries.) I was concerned that the similarity to Mike Shefler's #5, "the active portion(s) of a protein or enzyme molecule," might elicit a rash of votes for the pair, and more so when Judy Madnick's 5-11 vote came in barely ten minutes after the list went out, but that didn't happen; D3 is not an unreasonable number.¬*








The next deal goes to Tim Bourne, whose carriage platform for footpeople got two votes and he also got two for his 5-11 combo, for a total of four. Runners-up and traditional "winnahs" are the aforementioned Mike Shefler and Dan Widdis, with three natural points each.
