You're so hot, you denature my proteins and other nerdy pick up lines

Your lab or my lab?

I'd really like to titrate with you...

I'm feeling rather exothermic tonight!

What does it take to get over YOUR activation barrier?

I've been single-stranded far too long! Lonely ATGCATG would like to pair up with congenital TACGTAC

My favorite mechanism is a SN2 backside attack. And you?

Hey baby! I'll be the nucleophile if you'll be the electrophile!

I must be RNA, because I'm not gonna be complete without 'u'.

If I were an enzyme I would be DNA helicase to unzip your genes.

Can I be the phasor to your electron and take you to an excited state?

We fit together like the sticky ends of recombinant DNA.

Hey, wanna put your alpha helix in my beta barrel?

Do you want to extract some protein from my column?

How about me and you go back to my place and form a covalent bond?

I wish I were adenine because then I could get paired with U.

You’re like telophase, I admire your cleavage.

Hey baby, want to form a zygote?

If I were a Shwann cell, I'd squeeze around your axon and give you a fast action potential.

Want to be my substrate/enzyme?

You must be the one for me, since my selectively permeable membrane let you through.

Whenever I am near you, I undergo anaerobic respiration because you take my breath away.

Can I be your enzyme? Because my active site is dying for a chemical reaction.

I'm really digging your phenotype.

You wanna make an F1 with me?

If I were an endoplasmic reticulum, how would you want me? smooth.....or ROUGH?

You must be gibberelin, because I'm experiencing some stem elongation.

Hey baby, will a little more alcohol catalyze this reaction?

I will fondle your vesicles while you caress my golgi body.

I want to work on your leucine zipper with my zinc fingers.

Would any of these work on you?


  1. It don't want to be a smartass, but I am: "TACGTAC" should be "CATGCAT"

    The Smartass

  2. to the above comment.... dude.. A and A do not complement!!!

  3. you always write 5' to 3'

    3'TACGTAC 5' not good
    5'CATGCAT 3' that's better

  4. besides the point though....hard to concentrate on complementarity when all I can think about are beta barrels

  5. Both of you idiots have it wrong lol. A-T, C-G...A doesn't pair with A!

  6. Ya'll need = to pay more attention in Genetics 101 lol....the complimentary strand in the joke is CORRECT.


    A always pairs with T and C always pairs with G.

  7. We must be subatomic particles, because I feel strong force between us.

  8. You know the right frequency to get my electrons excited.
