microRNA-mediated replication cycles (10)

See first: microRNA-mediated replication cycles (9) Conclusion from Guenther Witzany What is Life? 3/18/20 …new nucleotide sequences now appear to have originated from social agents such as viruses, their parasitic relatives, and related RNA networks, not from errors. A new definition of life must integrate the current empirical knowledge about interactions between cells, viruses, and RNA networks to provide a better explanatory power than the twentieth century narrative. The twentieth century narrative led to curated news reports that favored stupid…

See first: microRNA-mediated replication cycles (8) Rotavirus research: 2014-2020 7/2/21 A temperature sensitive mutant… in the triplet encoding amino acid 138 of VP1 (L138P)…was separately expressed as a… protein, shown to interact with viroplasm-like particles (VLPs) in uninfected cells and to synthesize RNA in vitro…” My summary: The rotavirus steals the energy required for the ATP-dependent synthesis of RNA, which typically biophysically constrains viral latency across kingdoms. Contextual constraints occur via light-activated carbon fixation, oxidative phosphorylation and RNA interference (RNAi).…

In 365 days, after celebration of independence from public health fascism on Independence Day 2022 in the USA, Guenther Witzany, co-author of Infectious Thoughts: Discovering Biology as a Social Science will end the pseudoscientific nonsense about beneficial mutations and evolution across billions to millions of years via his efforts to organize and to present during this conference. How Evolution Learnt to Learn 7/6/22 – 7/9/22 Representations of the solar analemma, the Mobius strip, examples of infinity, and microRNA-mediated replication cycles…

Natural models inspire future therapeutics (2)

Summary: Food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain viral latency, and an effective treatment for all neurodegenerative diseases was proposed in this 2011 patent application “Pheromones and the luteinizing hormone for inducing proliferation of neural stem cells and neurogenesis“ See for comparison: Identification of miR-379/miR-656 (C14MC) cluster downregulation and associated epigenetic and transcription regulatory mechanism in oligodendrogliomas. The post- transcriptionally regulatory network of this cluster showed enrichment of key cancer-related biological processes such as cell adhesion and migration. Also, there was…

The concept of a species (3)

Gene expression evidence for remodeling of lateral hypothalamic circuitry in cocaine addiction (2005) This remodeling of LH circuitry could contribute to the chronic deficit in reward function that has been hypothesized to drive the transition to drug addiction. Lena D. van der Stap discussed her role in the publication of this article, which failed to make any assumptions about mutations and/or evolution. James Kohl Did you co-author Gene expression evidence for remodeling of lateral hypothalamic circuitry in cocaine addiction McEwen told…

MicroRNA-mediated alternative splicing (revisited)

Building one molecule from a reservoir of two atoms reported as: Cold chemistry with two atoms. They linked differences in the energy of photons from two different wavelengths of light, 700 nm and 976 nm, to the creation of the molecule NaCs*. They were able to detect molecule formation in the context of atom loss and NaCs* vibrational levels near the dissociation threshold. Detecting resonances that have not been previously observed appears to be the link from quantum physics to…

Misleading evidence, Raman Hyperspectroscopy and FB jail

Yesterday, on the topic of vaccines used to prevent Ebola virus transmission, I wrote: …. There is no such thing as an extinct virus. Their ability to steal energy is biophysically constrained until nutrient stress and/or social stress cause their reactivation. I provided a link to The Darwin Code Today, I read about The misleading evidence that fooled scientists for decades After posting this comment to “The Conversation,” I learned I was blocked from posting anything to Facebook.

From quantum physics to quantum souls (4)

The long-range consequences of food energy-dependent social factors predictably link everything known about social odors called pheromones from the quantized energy in food to metabolism and biophysically constrained viral latency.  Sympatric speciation exemplifies what is known about how quantized energy links the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency in species from microbes to humans. In this review of biophysically constrained viral latency and biodiversity, I linked energy-dependent changes from angstroms to ecosystems in the mouse-to-human model of microRNA-mediated amino…

The origin of information (5,4,3,2,1)

Summary: These findings reveal a new GLU biosynthetic pathway, which could contribute to some of the sunlight-induced neurobehavioral changes. The claims about new biosynthetic pathways should be placed into the context of what is known about the energy-dependent origin of all pathways. Researchers may have solved origin-of-life conundrum …the conditions that produce nucleic acid precursors also create the starting materials needed to make natural amino acids and lipids. That suggests a single set of [light activated] reactions could have given…
