      Okay, does everybody know how to play twenty questions? When I play it it doesn’t really have to be just twenty but play until someone guesses what the ‘thing’ is or gives up. You have to ask 1 yes or no question then you answer, whoever guesses first wins.
      Okay I’m thinking of an animal

      It is not in Aves or Insecta but Insecta is closer, because it is not a vertebrate.
      Dr. Stein that maybe too scientific! because I’m not sure. They have to have kind of a specific habitat but they are found a lot in the United States and probably many other countries have very similar species if not the same ones.

      All of these are very, very close, but not quite. Let me recap some of the characteristics before someone gets mad at me:

      It is an omnivorous primate that will eat just about anything. It has no tail. Very few remain in the wild (defined as anything outside civilization), and it distribution is worldwide.

      Maybe that review will help. If not, keep trying and you’re sure to get it.

      Microaerophiles grows only at low level O2 concentration, they won’t grow in normal atmosphere, but wont grow in total anaerobiosis.

      Mixing species and subspecies here. According to the Judicial commission you mix species, subspecies and cases serovar.
      There are only 3 Species In the genus Salmonella: S. enterica, S. bongori, and S. subterranea
      S. enterica comprised 6 sub species: enterica, arizonae, diarizonae, houtenae, indica and salamae.
      S. typhi can be used to avoid confusion among the medical community, but is in fact S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhi.

      But the question is still interesting ๐Ÿ˜‰

      i was thinking about Salmonella typhi. Well, Salmonella enterica enterica typhi. Sorry, but that is the way i have been taught. And by a microbiology professor, too.
      Anyway, that was the answer. So i guess alex wins, even if the question was wrong because my answer was wrong too.

      Are they antigens?
      Yes, but our body generates tolerance for them.

      Are they produced by the mitochondira of the cells? nucleaus?
      They are called as "secondary metabolites"

      Is the production of the thing u r talkin about is normal or is it produced in abnormal conditions?
      Normal. It is naturally and normally produced by plants or animals.

      ECLs are cells of the fundus of the stomach. They contain high amount of histamine and release it in order to activate the acid-producing parietal cells

      Dr. Stein last visited in 2008. I think we can say he’s not going to answer.

      I’m thinking of an animal.

      hmm…i agree with Zongo, Dr. Stein seems to take a little break.
      If he returns, nobody will doubt his right to resume to _his_ animal.

      Meanwhile we just go on with Zongo’s animal, I suggest.

      Is it a mammal ?

      (So Zongo, don’t disappoint me by taking a break too)

      Hi guys! If its an animal, then it won’t be unicellular and it does not matter if its dead or alive. We could try to ask questions to classify it.

      So my first question is

      1. is it a vertebrate?
