Mouse morphs and primate diversity in 50 years

Excerpt: Analysis of the crystal structure of deer mouse Hb at 1.8 Å resolution (24, 25) revealed that each of the eight rHb mutants is characterized by a unique constellation of hydrogen bonds within and between subunits (Table 2 and fig. S2). Additional hydrogen bonds between subunits of the same αβ dimer are formed in the presence of β128Ser (an L-type residue; fig. S2), which contributes to the observed epistasis between allelic α- and β-chain variants. ——————————— Energy-dependent RNA-mediated biophysically…

Two retractions of human idiocy

Excerpt: …she was interested in the PNAS research because it identified a potential inhibitor of the hepatitis C virus… ”Definitely embarrassing:” Nobel Laureate retracts non-reproducible paper in Nature journal 1) This retraction marks the second in six months for Nature Chemistry after having none for eight years. 2) In 2009, Szostak also retracted a 2008 paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences after an outside researcher could not replicate the results. The retraction notice credited Katherine Berry, then…

Exposing the 2nd Law to more ridicule (1)

Summary: Experiment demonstrates quantum mechanical effects from biological system Schrödinger (1944) linked the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in soil bacteria to all biodiversity. He then began to suspect that his colleagues, who displayed human idiocy, would kill him – if ever again he reasserted the facts. After 1944, Richard P. Feynman took a stand against the human idiocy, and lost. He was not killed, just ignored. Ignorance prevails. It always has. The virus-driven…

Light activated error-free DNA repair (3)

The vibrational theory of olfaction for the win …he and his co-authors delve into more of the specifics of olfactory receptors, including particular amino acid motifs, metal binding capacities, and disulphide bridge redox status. It turns out that amino acid side chains alone frequently pull off some rather interesting electron transfer effects without the need for fancy co-enzymes or prosthetic groups. See for an example of what one enzyme can do: See also this example of how the energy-dependent creation…

Light-activated error free DNA repair (2)

Summary: In the diagram and diatribes that accompany claims about de novo changes in electrons and the production of nucleotides, the amount of pseudoscientific nonsense becomes perfectly clear. Pseudoscientists start with energy-dependent changes but call the changes de novo changes in electrons. That allows the pseudoscientists to dismiss any facts about how the creation of energy must be linked to the creation of enzymes. The creation of enzymes does not automagically occur and the creation of all biodiversity must occur…

Schrodinger’s answer to Schrodinger’s question

There is no such thing as de novo control of electrons or self-assembly. Answering Schrödinger’s question: A free-energy formulation The free-energy principle (FEP) is a formal model of neuronal processes that is widely recognised in neuroscience as a unifying theory of the brain and biobehaviour. More recently, however, it has been extended beyond the brain to explain the dynamics of living systems, and their unique capacity to avoid decay. They don’t understand the question that Schrodinger answered. He linked the…

MicroRNAs and the Cassandra syndrome (revisited)

Conclusion: Serious scientists can explain every aspect of energy-dependent biophysically constrained viral latency in the context of details about these pathways and everything that links changes from electrons to ecosystems in all living genera. Why are the serious scientists still challenged by “…the tendency of academia to reject any academic-like work from outside academia?” What aspect of the academic contribution that could lead to the cure for all pathology do biologically uninformed academics want to continue to reject and attack?…

A null mutation and healthy longevity?

Summary: Food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain all pathology in species from microbes to humans. What kind of biologically uninformed science idiot leaves out everything known to serious scientists about the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA and tells others they must falsify the neutral null theory that led to claims about a biophysically constrained beneficial “null mutation” in the Amish population of Berne, Indiana? Glutamylation Regulates Transport, Specializes Function, and Sculpts the Structure of Cilia Reported as: How to Control…

Light-activated error free DNA repair

Summary: The same set of microRNAs controls expression of the genes for rate-limiting enzymes, which control differences in the hormone production of different hormones in insects and crustaceans. That fact led to this claim in: The secret to safe DNA repair. …if you don’t have this enzyme, then this error-free repair is stopped. You can’t do it. If you can’t do the error-free repair, among other things that happen is that you expect these cells to be cancer prone. The…

Eutrophication and phosphorylated biodiversity

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (also yin–yang or yin yang, 陰陽 yīnyáng “dark–bright”) describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Last night I dreamed that someone added color to this symbol and represented it as a spinning disk (in a publication from the Nature publishing group).  The specifics of the dream helped me…
