"The sense strand is like an electrical extension cord where the 'female' end is safe to leave open until an appliance is attached, but the protruding 'male' end is active and for safety's sake only works when plugged into a 'female' socket. Thus, protein production usually only comes from copying the sense strand, not the anti-sense strand."
