    1. Was the type specimen for Cassidula nucleus (Gmelin, 1791) collected by James Cook (1728-1779)? The type specimen with catalog number NHMD-155242 is collected at Tahiti and James Cook visited Tahiti during all of his three voyages (1768-1771; 1772-1775; 1776-1779).

      Original description of Helix nucleus Gmelin, 1791: "Nucleus. 255. H. tefta imperforata ovata glauca transverfim ftriata: cingulis atris, apertura finuola. Martin univ. Conch. 2. t. 67. fig. exter. Habitat in Tahiti."

      The first voyage (1768–1771) of James Cook arrived at Tahiti on 13 April 1769. The second voyage (1772–1775) of James Cook also landed at Tahiti to resupply in 1774. And again during his third voyage (1776–1779). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cook

      Systema Naturae was originally published in 1735. But does not include Helix nucleus. The 10th edition 1758 does not include Helix nucleus. The 12 edition (1766-68) and last edited by Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778) does not include Helix nucleus. While the 13th edition edited by Johann Friedrich Gmelin between 1788 and 1793 does include Helix nucleus in volume 1 part 1 published in July 1788. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systema_Naturae

      The type specimen held at Zoological museum of the the Natural History Museum of Denmark with catalog number NHMD-155242 is indicated as collected by James Cook at Tahiti. As the type specimen for Helix nucleus Gmelin, 1791, it must have been collected before 1791.

    1. transcriptionalleve

      This is the process of a complementary mRNA copy of a single gene on the DNA that is created in the nucleus. The mRNA is smaller than the DNA so it can carry the genetic code into the ribosome and into the cytoplasm that enables the protein creation.

    1. messenger RNA (mRNA)

      This is a single strand on an RNA molecule that leaves the the nucleus of a cell in order to relocate to the cytoplasm. This is where the mRNA can help create the protein for the cell in a process known as protein synthesis. The mRNA takes in information passed into it by DNA and decode it for the ribosomes to make more protein for the cell to live on.
