All About DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid)
Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, contains the genetic code that describes the physical characteristics of every known life form.
Find out how DNA works and what you're made of!
FACTS: Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is the amazing molecular double helix that contains the genetic codes for all known life. First identified in 1869 and accurately described in 1953, its very existence provides a new understanding about how life works.
The two spiraling strands that coil around each other are comprised of sugar and phosphate molecules which provide support for the code- carrying rows of base pairs. The four bases – adenine,(A), thymine,(T), guanine,(G), and cytosine,(C) – always have a matched pair, A’s with T’s, G’s with C’s. As a result, the 4 letter code is effectively duplicated, greatly enhancing its stability and allowing for efficient replication.
And what can you spell with this 4 letter alphabet? A series of 3 letter words which specify the 20 amino acids needed to make all of the proteins necessary for life.
The human genome contains about 3 billion letters (bases), or a billion words (codons). These words, collected in 23 chromosomes, describe the more than 20,000 genes that are the substance of our bodies. Some genes take a few hundred words to describe, some take hundreds of thousands.
99% of the DNA in every individual is identical – and indeed, much of our DNA is shared with every living creature on Earth.
But the tiny variations in the words are sufficient to fashion the great diversity of creatures on the planet, and the uniqueness of every human being that has ever lived.

I recently received a World’s Smallest GI Joe vs. Cobra Micro Action Figures "Duke" figure from Knick Knack Toy Shack. The mini figure is really cool and great for your collection. Knick Knack Toy Shack was fast on delivery and will definitely order from them again.
I really enjoy all my items, shop vac works great, etch a sketch is awesome, my Mr potato head is so cool, I like how the magic 8ball really works and my glow worm is the excatly like the big one I got in the 90's
The cuteness of this kitty will creep up on you like a curious spider. But don't be afraid of the hour glass on her back. It is there to make her stand out more in a dark room. This eight-legged cat is great for Halloween as she spins her web of intrigue with her unique design. Of course, for the goth-minded, she is a year round favorite.
I ran across this site and I am so glad I did. The story of this business is awesome. I have been very impressed with the quality and quick turn around on products ordered. I absolutely love this site and will use it for many things I feel sure

Great service!! Order came really fast!!
I ordered several cats vs pickles from Knick Knack Toy Shack. They are so cute + needed specific ones to complete my collection for my grandkids. I felt the prices were ok, especially because I was getting the exact ones I needed. No random choices. The were delivered very quickly + was very satisfied with the whole transaction. I would not hesitate to order again
Love the quality and the color. Great product selection and super fast shipping, too. But be warned, these individual CVP toys come unwrapped. There's no case or packaging, so if you plan on collecting them like the Beanie Baby days, you'll need something to preserve them.
