Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (6)

I failed to correctly predict who would win this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry, but there is still hope for my prediction of who will win the Nobel Peace Prize. I thought Lynn Zechiedrich would win for linking cryo-EM to the Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA Our cryo-ET, biochemical, and computational studies show the astounding versatility and dynamism of DNA depending on the degree of supercoiling. DNA simultaneously exists in a largely inactive B-form with bases tucked in and protected…

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…

Thanks again for asking about DNA methylation

Re: RNA-directed DNA methylation (1996) See: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior Molecular epigenetics. It is now understood that certain genes undergo a process called “genomic or parental imprinting.” Early in embryonic development attached methyl groups become removed from most genes. Several days later, methyl groups are reattached in appropriate sites. Fascinatingly, some such genes reestablish methylation patterns based upon whether the chromosomal segment carrying the gene came from maternal or paternal chromosomes. See also: RNA-directed DNA methylation: an epigenetic…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (3)

Summary: The unique mechanism detailed in the context of “Roles of APOBEC3A and APOBEC3B in Human Papillomavirus Infection and Disease Progression” is obviously not a unique mechanism. The mechanism exemplifies the fact that RNA-directed DNA methylation is energy-dependent and the fact that virus-driven energy theft causes the degradation of messenger RNA, which serious scientists have linked to all pathology. My failure to accurately predict who would win the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine can now be placed into…

Lethal virus kills 5 billion people?

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (2)

Summary: Endogenous RNA interference is the energy-dependent epigenetic link from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency. The stress-linked virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA has been linked to all pathology. Three Americans win Nobel medicine prize for body rhythm work [But they failed to link Americanism to Creationism] I predicted that Wen Zhou would win for linking the energy-dependent creation of G protein-coupled receptors to all biodiversity via olfaction and the space-time continuum in the context of…

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2017 will be announced on Tuesday 3 October, 11:45 a.m. at the earliest. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017 will be announced on Wednesday 4 October, 11:45 a.m. at the earliest. The Nobel Prize in Literature 2017 According to tradition, the Swedish Academy will set the date for its announcement later. The Nobel Peace Prize…

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…

Caught in an epigenetic trap: flag waving consequences

Egypt concert-goers arrested for raising rainbow flag This is an example of “flag waving” consequences from another part of the world. They are accused of “public indecency” and “inciting immorality among young people”, the sources said following Monday’s arrests. Why? These protesters were probably caught in an epigenetic trap. See: Search Results for “epigenetic trap” The colors of the rainbow link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to epigenetically trapped water in supercoiled DNA and all biophysically constrained biodiversity via…

Life and death via chemical effects on photosynthesis

Summay: “…chemosignals are a promising approach both to modeling posttraumatic stress disorders in humans [36] and to searching for mehods of their treatment.” Serious scientists linked the sense of smell in bacteria from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in all living genera to our visual perception of energy and mass in the context of the space time continuum. The fact that food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain cell type differentiation in mammals was first placed into the context of [Pheromonal…

Sci-Hub vs limits on the dissemination of information

The ideology of “Americanism” is not consistent with the tactics of academics and politicians that constrain release of accurate information about  biologically-based cause and effect. …Americanism is an ideology, or belief in devotion, loyalty, or allegiance to the United States of America, or to its flag, traditions, customs, culture, symbols, institutions, or form of government.[2] In the words of Theodore Roosevelt, “Americanism is a question of spirit, conviction, and purpose, not of creed or birthplace.”[3] Americanism has two different meanings.…
