a: Tubulin ~
b: Lego block

What: "Tubulin is like a Lego block that can be used to build all kinds of different things. Regulation means all the things that influence when the block is produced and how it gets put together with other molecules. Other proteins help synthesize tubulin, help fold it into the right shape, help sculpt fibers into the spindle, and then take it apart again"

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.
