Monday's Molecule #44

UPDATE: We have a winner. See comments.

Today's molecule (in red) is part of a larger complex. There are two view of this complex in the figure. You have to supply the common name of this molecule—the one colored red in the complex. There's a direct connection between this molecule and Wednesday's Nobel Laureate(s).

The reward goes to the person who correctly identifies the molecule and the Nobel Laureate(s). Previous free lunch winners are ineligible for one month from the time they first collected the prize. There are no ineligible candidates for this Wednesday's reward. The prize is a free lunch at the Faculty Club.

Send your guess to Sandwalk (sandwalk(at) and I'll pick the first email message that correctly identifies the molecule and the Nobel Laureate(s). Correct responses will be posted tomorrow along with the time that the message was received on my server. This way I may select multiple winners if several people get it right.

Comments will be blocked for 24 hours. Comments are now open.

Of all the people who replied only Marc Perry realized that the molecule was signal recognition particle (SNP) and the Nobel Laureate will be Günter Blobel.

I must admit that I'm a little surprised. I thought this one was too easy.
