Welcome to RNA-Mediated

A Message From J.V.Kohl:

Here you will find information that links physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics via RNA-mediated events such as the de novo creation of olfactory receptor genes in order to encourage a public discussion of a paradigm shift.

Pheromones protect us from viruses (2)

Recent advances in the regulation of plant miRNA biogenesis 3/5/21 MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are essential non-coding riboregulators of gene expression in plants and animals… plants use multiple mechanisms to control miRNA accumulation. All of the mechanisms are light-activated and they biophysically constrain viral latency across kingdoms via the physiology of reproduction. See: A Quick HYL1-Dependent Reactivation of MicroRNA Production Is Required for a Proper Developmental Response after Extended Periods of Light Deprivation  7/18/18 …plants alter microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis in response to…

Pheromones protect us from viruses (1)

Involvement of transposable elements in neurogenesis 3/24/20 appeared in my search for indexed articles that mention microRNA on 3/4/21. There are more than 116,500 others. See: microRNA  MicroRNAs, many of which arise from transposon transcripts, also play an important role in regulating the differentiation of neuronal stem cells. That fact was established in the mid-1990s and was linked From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) via pre-mRNA-mediated stem cell differentiation across kingdoms in our section on molecular epigenetics. At that time…

Impeach God or impeach Joe? (1)

God’s Creation of energy as information has been linked to biophysically constrained viral latency by all intelligent serious scientists and most intelligent people. Neo-Darwinian theorists, Democrats, liberals, conspiracy theorists, Communists, and other atheists are exceptions. Are they intelligent people? See: Conductance selectivity of Na+ across the K+ channel via Na+ trapped in a tortuous trajectory, which was reported on 3/1/21 as New study challenges ‘established’ mechanism about selectivity of cellular ion channels For a historical perspective on what’s new, see:…

2/22/21 In Case You Missed it. The cure for HIV and all other virus-driven pathology was announced today via an indexed publication found through my daily PubMed search for microRNA. Efficacy, accumulation, and transcriptional profile of anti-HIV shRNAs expressed from human U6, 7SK, and H1 promoters 12/31/20 & indexed on 2/22/21 announced “…a functional cure for HIV.” “The RNA polymerase III promoters H1, 7SK, and U6…” were linked to the cure or the effective treatment of all virus-driven diseases via…

sunlight and humidity can weaken the coronavirus — Donald J. Trump 4/23/20 …there’s no medical basis for Trump’s statements about sunlight.  Jonathan Reiner, professor of medicine at The George Washington University Hospital 4/24/20 Former president Trump was absolutely correct. He linked physics and chemistry to molecular biology and healthy longevity via Haplotype-resolved diverse human genomes and integrated analysis of structural variation 2/25/21 Structural variants (SVs) —inversions, deletions, duplications, and insertions ≥50 bp in length—and their breakpoints “…are generally more depleted…

MicroRNA biogenesis and their functions in regulating stem cell potency and differentiation 3/9/16 …summarizes the basic biogenesis and mode of actions of miRNAs, recent progress and discoveries of miRNAs in cellular reprogramming, stem cell differentiation and cellular communication, as well as miRNAs in CSCs. MicroRNAs organize intrinsic variation into stem cell states 3/5/20 was linked to prevention of  the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA in CSCs via the fact that “…naturally arising cell-to-cell variation, sometimes described as stochastic fluctuation, is…
