lysine as a critical plot element in movies

As far as I’m concerned, lysine is just OK. As an overall class of molecules, amino acids are sort of bland. Slim pickens in terms of functional diversity. Not a lot of a razzle dazzle. And among the 20-22 (depending on who you ask) lysine is about as average as it gets. If there were a Yelp review for lysine I would give it 2 out of 5 stars. And yet I can think of two major movies where lysine was a critical plot element. The first dates back to my awkward middle school years: Jurassic Park invoked the “lysine contingency” as a last resort means to control unmitigated dinosaur reproduction. Clip here.

More recently, and more based in reality, the 1996 lysine price-fixing scandal was brilliantly portrayed by a hefty Matt Damon in The Informant! In this movie I enjoyed how Damon put a slight emphasis on the second syllable in lysine, opposite how I’ve always heard it.


Are there other amino acids that have been pivotal in other movies? I can’t think of too many off the top of my head. Maybe dopamine/levodopa in Awakenings is all that comes to mind.

    Can a link to the actual scientific study be provided? Otherwise this is just a compilation of opinion videos and snippets from opinionated articles. I want to see the time tables, the control group, the variable group, and I want to see repeated trials. Otherwise, this is meaningless “Don’t do drugs,” to me.

    Find out if you will find some other costs included in the refinance home loan, and have dedication through the
    lender for them. To lend a hand them inside undertaking, several financing establishments have arrive ahead among popular schemes and
    versatile reimbursement options. However, thought this action is often a legal tool that lenders possess on secured personal loans to extract their money, it doesn’t signify
    lenders have no means to recoup their cash when the lending
    way is unsecured.
