What: "Acetyl CoA is like a "shipping and receiving department" for items of useful metabolic energy. Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) is an enzyme that catalyzes carboxylation of Acetyl-CoA to produce Malnyl-CoA, this happens when one molecule of acetyl co-A is joined with a molecule of carbon dioxide requiring energy from ATP."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
