Mitochondrial-to-cell size ratio in HeLa cells links reproduction by fission in yeasts to the advent of sexual reproduction in yeasts via the same nutrient chemical-dependent molecular mechanisms that are important to cancer research.
the logic of gene regulatory networks in adaptive evolution does not skip any species.
I will not dismiss the potential importance of oxytocin to effective treatment despite the fact that the mechanisms of its effectiveness remain unknown.
What I don’t see is anyone who is integrating the ecological, social, and neurogenic niches and considering the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and pheromones in the context of endocrine disruption and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance.
Pheromones are like food odors. Not every food is equally appealing. But we can enhance individual appeal with pheromones just like we can spice up the appeal of food.
This effect helps to explain why the odor preferences of mammals, including humans, appear to develop before birth, but it probably has nothing to do with visual input except via its association with olfactory/pheromonal input, neurogenesis, learning and memory.
