This article was written recently with the intention of going to FAC. It has had (limited) peer review at Wikipedia:Peer review/Exosome (RNA degradation machinery)/archive1 and meets (in my opinion) the FAC criteria. It is a self nomination, but the article has been edited also by others during the last days, mainly fixing the last remaining spelling and stylistic errors.
All images are GFDL, specifically made for the article
It is not as large as some FACs, but I think it has an appropriate length for the topic
The article contains no redlinks, for all redlinks I made at least an informative stub article
Article was embedded in Wikipedia by adding links to it in appropriate articles
References are all to scientific journals (most of which are peer-reviewed), including both review articles and research articles
Comment This is mainly cosmetic, but maybe the title could be reined in a bit? It's a mouthful of a parenthetical. While I'm not a subject expert, looking at the article and the dab page, maybe renaming the article Exosome (complex) or Exosome (protein complex) or something similar would help. Essentially, something appropriate which is also as basic, memorable, and user-friendly as can be done. Girolamo Savonarola 03:13, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Support - I wish there was a way to make references to proteins and genes more accessible, but this is the best we can expect, I suppose. ←BenB4 06:47, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. I agree with you on proteins and genes, but unfortunately Wikipedia only contains articles about a minorty of all proteins. Links to external databases are one of the few ways to deal with it. I have just also added links to the yeast genome database, but if you have any other suggestion, let me know. --Cpt.
