Quantification of ongoing APOBEC3A activity in tumor cells by monitoring RNA editing at hotspots  6/12/20 …we demonstrate that the RNA mutation-based APOBEC3A assay is applicable to clinical samples from cancer patients. Our study presents a strategy to follow the dysregulation of APOBEC3A in tumors, providing opportunities to investigate the role of APOBEC3A in tumor evolution… Reported as: Monitoring RNA hotspots reveals target in cancer tumor cells by University of California, Irvine The targeting is microRNA-mediated. Proteins do not create themselves…

See first: pH-dependent viral latency (5) Researchers from Iran linked light-activated microRNA biogenesis in plants to the expression genes that effect the number, size and/or the pH of pathways that influence melanin synthesis in the context of human iris color and human skin pigmentation via the L‐tyrosine amino acid precursor. The claim on 6/5/20 by Frank M. LaFerla about the links from energy-dependent changes in microbes to humans and racism was retracted on the same day. Thank God, scientific Creationists…

NIH’s ignorance: from roots to shoots (1)

A plant’s diet, surviving in a variable nutrient environment 3/3/20 links Algal ancestor of land plants was preadapted for symbiosis 10/5/15 from our NIH Director’s ridiculous claims about evolution across billions to millions of years to the fact that George M. Church has abandoned all hope for scientific progress that might otherwise have been achieved from follow-up on the Human Genome Project. See: Korean Genome Project: 1094 Korean personal genomes with clinical information 5/27/20 (with co-author George Church -Department of Genetics,…

Molecular and biochemical mechanisms of human iris color: A comprehensive review 6/2/20 MicroRNAs also affect melanocyte synthesis, which is usually affected by the downregulation of essential genes involved in pigmentation. Researchers from Iran linked light-activated microRNA biogenesis in plants to the expression genes that effect the number, size and/or the pH of pathways that influence melanin synthesis in the context of human iris color and human skin pigmentation via the L‐tyrosine amino acid precursor. The energy-dependent microRNA-mediated link from the…

My top tweet @microRNApro during the month of March 2018 earned 3,884 impressions. I wrote: See also my series on “Interethnic biodiversity” via this search: Interethnic genetic simiarities and a PubMed search for microRNA See also: Denying Genetics Isn’t Shutting Down Racism, It’s Fueling It 3/30/18 On the male-female divide, for example, Reich cites profound differences, “reflecting more than 100 million years of evolution and adaptation.” On race, he is both agnostic about what we will eventually find out with respect…

Most Memorial Day 2020 celebrations and services were cancelled due to the well-orchestrated coronavirus crisis, which led to restrictions on our Constitutional rights. During the past two years, I’ve linked the eternal significance of light-activated microRNA biogenesis to our Constitutional rights. See the 10-part series: The eternal significance of microRNAs (10) and the 10-part series: The microRNA-mediated future of humanity (10) See also: pH-dependent viral latency and pH-dependent viral latency (2) Ages 10-14+ can learn what is known about pH-dependent…

Recently, amino acid substitutions in the three main antigenic regions, especially at positions 96…

Four back-to-back articles in Science Magazine on May 15, 2020 attest to facts about how God’s Creation of energy-as-information was linked to all biodiversity on Earth via President Donald J. Trump’s claim about UV light and facts about light activated microRNA biogenesis, which biophysically constrains viral latency via the pH-dependent physiology of reproduction.   1) Modeling infectious disease dynamics The current pandemic has no parallel…, but the new virus is following rules common to other pathogens. The so-called “rules” are…

Vaccines do not control pandemics (1)

See: Emergence of Human G2P[4] Rotaviruses in the Post-vaccination Era in South Korea: Footprints of Multiple Interspecies Re-assortment Events 4/16/18 Compared to the G2 RotaTeq vaccine strain, 17-24 amino acid changes, specifically A87T, D96N, S213D, and S242N substitutions in G2 epitopes, were observed. Amino acid changes control pandemics. Congo: MSF Ebola vaccination begins 5/30/18 The Ebola vaccine (rVSVDG-ZEBOV-GP) is being used as part of the overall strategy to control the Ebola outbreak. There was no indication that the vaccine strategy…
