A null mutation and healthy longevity?

Summary: Food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain all pathology in species from microbes to humans. What kind of biologically uninformed science idiot leaves out everything known to serious scientists about the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA and tells others they must falsify the neutral null theory that led to claims about a biophysically constrained beneficial “null mutation” in the Amish population of Berne, Indiana? Glutamylation Regulates Transport, Specializes Function, and Sculpts the Structure of Cilia Reported as: How to Control…

Epigenetic facts vs variable recombination theories

6/14/13 Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model ….the model represented here is consistent with what is known about the epigenetic effects of ecologically important nutrients and pheromones on the adaptively evolved behavior of species from microbes to man. Minimally, this model can be compared to any other factual representations of epigenesis and epistasis for determination of the best scientific ‘fit’. 7/25/13 Jay R. Feierman: Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual…

From base editing to RNA editing (4)

Summary: To claim evolution, Koonin must link food energy from the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction to fixation of a beneficial mutation in the organized genome of one species that evolved into another species. Search Results for “base editing” = 82 blog posts starting with Cell-type differentiation on February 7, 2014 Search Results for “RNA editing” = 95 blog posts starting with In theory, or supported by experimental evidence?

Loss of energy as information (1)

Summary: Koonin claims that the theories of population geneticists have replaced what he calls the just-so stories of adaptationists with testable predictions. He claims that serious scientists should attempt to falsify the ridiculous theories touted by people like him, so that the ongoing use of ridiculous mathematical models can improve our understanding of evolution. I think Koonin may be attempting to address the concerns brought forward after another biologically uninformed science idiot claimed that my refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense…

Long-term adaptation replaces evolution (3)

Summary: Koonin thinks that serious scientists who have linked the creation of energy to all biodiversity via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans must prove that everything the serious scientists know did not occur randomly after the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy emerged from nothing. Other pseudoscientists have taken a step towards refuting Koonin’s moronic claim with publication of: A mammalian blood odor component serves as an approach-avoidance cue across phylum border – from flies to…

Losers: Rediscovering an epigenetic key (2)

Genome-wide meta-analysis associates HLA-DQA1/DRB1 and LPA and lifestyle factors with human longevity “Validation of associations reported elsewhere,” includes the detailed associations from 1996 in the molecular epigenetics section of: From fertilization to adult sexual behavior  and in my 2013 refutation of neo-Darwinian theories: Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model  (Val370Ala is also known as rs3827760, also known as 1540T/C, 370A. It is a SNP in the ectodysplasin A receptor EDAR gene on chromosome 2.) Excerpt: Two additional recent reports link substitution…

Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (3)

What Your Nose Knows: Sense of Smell and Your Health August 2016 What the Nose Knows May Affect Your Brain Health October 2017 Doty’s research found a strong connection between low scores on a 40-item smell test and damage to this area of the brain. His recent article in The Lancet outlines possible ways that sense of smell and overall brain health could be linked and “may be the genesis of many neurodegenerative diseases.

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (1)

The structure-energy landscape of NMDA receptor gating …using single-molecule Forster resonance energy transfer (smFRET), we map the energy landscape of the first transmembrane segment of the Rattus norvegicus NMDA receptor under resting and various liganded conditions. These results show kinetically and structurally distinct changes associated with apo, agonist-bound, and inhibited receptors linked by a linear mechanism of gating at this site. Furthermore, the smFRET data suggest that allosteric inhibition by zinc occurs by an uncoupling of the agonist-induced changes at…

Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (2)

Summary: The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA is clearly linked to frontotemporal dementia (FTD) by altered language, personality, behavior, cognition and motor function. What causes FTD? If the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA causes all pathology, I would expect to find a link from microRNAs to the pathology and to the effective treatment. The social and economic burden of frontotemporal degeneration Reported as: Study reveals staggering economic burden of dementia in younger people Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) accounts for 20 to…

Entertaining yourself to death

Summary: Food energy is required for the creation of enzymes that metabolize the food, which links the metabolism to the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans via alternative splicings of pre-mRNAs, which are now called microRNAs in more than 65,000 published works. The horrid tradjedy of of yet another preventable death by suicide extends those works to preventing the cause of death of those killed by Stephen Paddock.
