Functionally interdependent editing and methylation

Editing and methylation at a single site by functionally interdependent activities …cytosine 32 in the anticodon loop of Trypanosoma brucei tRNAThr is methylated to 3-methylcytosine (m3C) as a pre-requisite for C-to-U deamination. Formation of m3C in vitro requires the presence of both the T. brucei m3C methyltransferase TRM140 and the deaminase ADAT2/3. Once formed, m3C is deaminated to 3-methyluridine (m3U) by the same set of enzymes. ADAT2/3 is a highly mutagenic enzyme4, but we also show that when co-expressed with…

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…

Who will kill the billion dollar baby? Bill Gates or Donald Trump

Bill Gates is set to meet with the President on Monday. [March 20, 2017] Both men know that virus-driven energy theft is the biggest threat humanity has ever faced. The threat arose in the context of wasted US government funding and wasted funding from philanthropists who supported the CRISPR gene-editing technology. For comparison, The Penrose Institute appears to be prepared to establish itself as a refuge for serious scientists who have been cast out of academia for their failure 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…

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…
