Pheromones biophysically constrain RNA-mediated biodiversity (2)

See: Combating Evolution to Fight Disease If you do not recognize the enemy, you may already be dead. See: Pheromones biophysically constrain RNA-mediated biodiversity (1) The facts are consistent with: DNA Denaturing through UV-C Photon Dissipation: A Possible Route to Archean Non-enzymatic Replication Photon dissipation is certainly the most primitive and extensive of all “metabolisms”. The results presented here also lend plausibility to the proposal of the acquisition of homochirality and information content in DNA through dissipation 7,8,17. The thermodynamic…

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…

Proteins “evolve” (revisited)

Complex evolutionary footprints revealed in an analysis of reused protein segments of diverse lengths Reported by Jay R. Feierman to the evolutionary psychology Yahoo Group as: Recycling at the molecular level: Protein evolution Reuse patterns in protein space reflect 3.7 billion y of evolution (58), restrained by the underlying physicochemical qualities of covalently linked amino acids. Autophagy links chirality from energy-dependent changes in electrons to ecosystems. For comparison, their claim is consistent with ridiculous misrepresentations of food energy-dependent biophysically constrained…

Faith in evolution: Paleontology as a molecular science

Keeping the faith For the last 20 years, Mary Schweitzer, a paleontologist at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, has amassed a wealth of evidence that she’s isolated protein fragments from dinosaurs as much as 80 million years old. That bucks the conventional wisdom among paleontologists who argue that proteins, which are made of chains of amino acids, can’t survive more than 1 million years or so. So far, no group other than Schweitzer and her collaborators has managed to…

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. See: ”Olfactory dysfunction in neurodegenerative diseases:…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (7)

Conclusion: The biggest threat to humanity is not the “Big Bang” theory of creation or the “Big Bang” theory of how life on Earth might end after an explosion of cosmic proportions. The biggest threat has always been “human idiocy.” 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Awarded to International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (5)

Summary: If he was not still dead, the 1965 Nobel Laureate, Richard P. Feynman might claim that this year’s Physics Prize was awarded for “human idiocy.” Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded to LIGO Black Hole Researchers Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, pronounced in 1916, suggested that matter and energy would warp the geometry of space-time the way a heavy sleeper sags a mattress, producing the effect we call gravity. His equations described a universe in which space and time were…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (4)

As you wait to learn who won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics and in Chemistry, please consider how these recent reports will be linked from electrons to ecosystems. Every aspect must start with the creation of energy, which must link chemistry to biophysically constrained biologically based life on Earth in the context of the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and Schrodinger’s claims in “What is Life? (1944). Without mention of the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight, the theories of physicists…

Viral infection linked to cancer via a “unique mechanism”

Summary: The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA was reported in the context of a “unique mechnanism.” DNA cytidine deaminases remove RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions from a cytosine and convert the cytosine uracil. The deamination causes the degradation of DNA and mutations if not repaired. Roles of APOBEC3A and APOBEC3B in Human Papillomavirus Infection and Disease Progression The family members of apolipoprotein B messenger RNA-editing, enzyme-catalytic, polypeptide-like 3 (APOBEC3; A3) are DNA cytidine deaminases that remove the amino group from a…

Epitranscriptomics: a “new” field

Conclusion: Serious scientists have a 20 year history of their ability to link energy-dependent changes from electrons to ecosystems via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in the context of hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution. This fact links hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution to the fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in hydrophobic supercoiled DNA, which protects all organized genomes from virus-driven entropy. I reiterate: Hordenine lacks a meta-hydroxyl group compared to dopamine, rendering it…
