Epigenetically-effected nucleosome repositioning sheds Dobzhansky’s light on evolution

Crystal structure of the overlapping dinucleosome composed of hexasome and octasome My summary: Nucleosomes are dynamic entities that are repositioned by energy-dependent links from sunlight to ATP and RNA biosynthesis that act on DNA during the chromatin remodeling, which is biophysically constrained by the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction during the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all morphological and behavioral phentoypes. processes. Reported as: Unveiling how nucleosome repositioning occurs to shed light on genetic diseases …an incomplete formation of overlapping dinucleosome may…

Virus-driven dietary pathology (1)

Viral Trigger for Celiac Disease? A common, seemingly benign human virus can trigger an immune response that leads to celiac disease in a mouse model, researchers show. Reovirus infection triggers inflammatory responses to dietary antigens and development of celiac disease Editor’s summary: Viruses compound dietary pathology Reoviruses commonly infect humans and mice asymptomatically. Bouziat et al. found that immune responses to two gut-infecting reoviruses take different paths in mice (see the Perspective by Verdu and Caminero). Both reoviruses invoked protective immune…

Sal Giardina: apologetics revisited

March 26, 2017 Sal Giardina wrote: “James, I appreciate your responding to my posts but I would prefer that your input would be related to the content of the post.” My reply: If you do not want people to learn how my claims are linked to yours, please tell me that you intend to continue with apologetics rather the concept of energy as information. Apologetics: … the religious discipline of defending or proving the truth of religious doctrines through systematic…

Where do sex differences come from?

3/22/17 Study identifies brain cells involved in Pavlovian response “The mice learned to associate the new scent with food, just like Pavlov’s dogs,” said Masmanidis, who is also a member of UCLA’s California NanoSystems Institute and Brain Research Institute. “Our next step was to uncover what happens to the Pavlovian response when we silence different groups of cells in the striatum.” Classically conditioned responses link the experience-dependent de novo creation of G protein-coupled receptors from food odors and pheromones to…

Thinking about energy is not radical re-thinking

The brain: a radical rethink is needed to understand it …Optogenetics, a technique that uses genetic modification of neurons so that their electrical activity can be controlled with light pulses – can help us to explore their specific contribution to brain function. Optogenetics links the speed of light on contact with water to what is known about all energy-dependent cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera. Serious scientists, for example, have linked angstroms to ecosystems in all living…

Proof: Sunlight is energy as information

Hypothesis: Kallmann’s syndrome is proof that virus-driven energy theft causes all pathology in species from archaea to humans via the degradation of messenger RNA and the loss of one allele.   Thought experiment: Step 1) The loss of one allele and the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of Zika virus-damaged DNA can be compared to the degradation of messenger RNA in bacteria that is manifested in archaea and L-forms. Step 2) The degradation of messenger RNA in primates differentiates healthy longevity from…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (2)

See also: Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (1) Let’s make peer review scientific …peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific. The androgynous baby-faced boy or girl pictured among those wearing pink “crotch” hats appears to representing others at the March for Women. The sign may also be representing the…

Sunlight: the essence of precision medicine and world peace

See for review: The essence of precision medicine See for comparison: We not only reject Trump’s values and policies, we also renew our commitment to a future where both the church and the academy will foster attitudes and actions so that human beings and the whole of creation can thrive. We join our hearts, our minds, our voices, and our actions with those of religious believers–Christians, Jews, Muslims, and people of all faiths, as well as with secular people of…
