Abiogenesis vs microRNA biogenesis

Summary: The pseudoscientific nonsense about abiogenesis that has been touted by Karo Michaelian and others like him has caused the unnecessary suffering and premature death of millions to billions of people by placing the pathogenic consequences of deregulated miRNAs into the context of ridiculous theories. See for comparison: Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA and the parody from the same research group: ——————————- Abiogenesis (2017) Microscopic dissipative structuring and proliferation at the origin of life (Oct 13, 2017) Some fundamental molecules…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (3)

Summary:  RNA-Dependent Intergenerational Inheritance of Enhanced Synaptic Plasticity after Environmental Enrichment was not linked to sympatric speciation via The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression Something has gone horribly wrong.   I suspect the overwhelming ignorance of biologically uninformed theorists is the problem because their silence is deafening. When trapped by their ridiculous theories, they no longer kick, scream, or bite (like weasels). They participate in so-called marches like the 2018 March for…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (1)

Common Allele Linked to Sugar Consumption Leads to Lower Body Fat, Higher Blood Pressure One energy-dependent change in a base pair is linked from the FGF21 rs838133 variant to microRNA-mediated changes in morphology and behavior. The quantized energy as information link from microRNAs to morphology and behavior is common to my mouse-to-human model of sympatric speciation. By linking the common allele to sugar consumption, the authors attest to the fact that sympatric speciation is quantized energy-dependent. Energy as information biophysically constrains…

Sympatric Speciation vs Pseudoscientific Nonsense (1)

Summary: The “Science Behind the Game” from the cell biology game “Cytosis” supports all claims that clearly link energy-dependent alternative splicings of pre-mRNAs (aka microRNAs) to biophysically constrained viral latency. Game play by ages 10+ establishes the requirement for viral latency in the context of ecological variation and ecological adaptation outside the context of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense. Simply put, Darwin presciently placed his “conditions of life” into the current perspective on ecological niche construction and sympatric speciation, which exemplifies ecological…

Is meat protein unhealthy? (2)

See also: Microbiome-Grade DNA Extraction Kits …the thermal and chemical methods effectively lyse the gram-negative organisms and boost their population in the final profile, amplifying the bias. This suggests that all links from food energy-dependent de novo creation of the pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained bull sperm microRNAome have been misinterpreted in the context of virus-driven fescue toxicosis. The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression …the miRNA profile of mature ejaculated sperm may in fact…

Complexity: Routes and Patterns (2)

Role of RNA modifications in brain and behavior “Here, we summarize current knowledge of cellular consequences of RNA modifications, with a special emphasis on neuropsychiatric disorders. We present evidence for the existence of an “RNA code,” similar to the histone code, that fine‐tunes gene expression in the nervous system by using combinations of different RNA modifications.” Different RNA modifications were referred to as alternative splicings of pre-mRNA in the molecular epigenetics section of this 1996 Hormones and Behavior review: From…

Psychophysical Laws of Biology: RNA-mediated nutritional psychiatry (3)

Psychophysical Laws and the Superorganism  (open access) …superorganisms may also exhibit such behaviour, suggesting that these laws arise from fundamental mechanisms of information processing and decision-making. Reported on Jun 14, 2013 as Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model and again on: Mar 27, 2018 as Honeybees may unlock the secrets of how the human brain works The study… found that superorganisms may obey the same laws as the human brain. Kohl’s “Laws of Biology” and Darwin’s “conditions of life” can now be…

RNA-mediated nutritional psychiatry (2)

Codon identity regulates mRNA stability and translation efficiency during the maternal-to-zygotic transition The amino acid optimality code (Fig 6) provides an alternative perspective on sequence changes between paralogs in evolution and human disease. Neo-Darwinian theorists dispense with Darwin’s food energy-dependent  “conditions of life.” They link mutations and disease to evolution via mathematical models. They exemplify human idiocy. See for example: Neopterygian phylogeny: the merger assay Reported as: Adaptive radiations in the Mesozoic Bony fishes are the most diverse of all…

Greg Bear took the lead with this approach in his novel Quantico (2006). A genetically engineered virus was used to erase the memory of a specifically targeted human population to reduce inter-ethnic conflict. [Greg Bear] …served as a consultant for NASA, the U.S. Army, the State Department, the International Food Protection Association, and Homeland Security on matters ranging from privatizing space to food safety, the frontiers of microbiology and genetics, and biological security.

Autophagy in health and disease (1)

Novel Treatment Strategies for the Nervous System: Circadian Clock Genes, Non-coding RNAs, and Forkhead Transcription Factors Each of these pathways have an intimate relationship with the programmed death pathways of autophagy and apoptosis and share a common link to the silent mating type information regulation 2 homolog 1 (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) (SIRT1) and the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR). Circadian clock genes are necessary to modulate autophagy, limit cognitive loss, and prevent neuronal injury. Non-coding RNAs can control neuronal stem cell…
