      No problems. A lot of people have been trying to make me repeat it lol. I write songs to help me remember things and when I was revising for my immunology exam in the final year of university I wrote a rap to help me remember things.

      The first bit goes like this:

      My name is Kimberley
      I like the MHC
      Bridging innate and adaptive immunity
      Yo Yo Yo
      DM to DO

      Right so now I will explain what that is all about!

      So MHC Stands for major histocompatability complex and alerts the immune system to foreign material present inside the cell. DM and DO are two proteins involved in transporting the foreign material to the MHC so that it can be detected by your immune system (T-cells).

      I write loads of silly science songs. If you want more detail just let me know 🙂
