Virus-driven genome engineering causes cancer?

CRISPR–Cas9 genome editing induces a p53-mediated DNA damage response Inhibition of p53 prevents the damage response and increases the rate of homologous recombination… In the 1990’s, Abcam researchers discovered the cell death gene. Now see: Mechanisms of Recombination conference See also: P53 toxicity is a hurdle to CRISPR/CAS9 screening and engineering in human pluripotent stem cells We demonstrated the toxic response is tp53-dependent and the toxic effect of tp53 severely reduces the efficiency of precise genome-engineering in hPSCs.

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…

The concept of a species (1)

In an attempt to discuss The misleading evidence that fooled scientists for decades I wrote: The concept of a species is clearly seen in the context of Darwin’s “conditions of life” and sympatric speciation. What organisms eat is linked from their physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency and all extant biodiversity via energy-dependent changes in base pairs and fixation of amino acid substitutions in the organized genomes of species from microbes to humans. See Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From…

The tipping point (revisited): 74,000 publications

President Trump and Kim Jong Un will probably discuss this fact: All serious scientists have learned that quantized energy-dependent microRNA biogenesis links everything known about the creation of sunlight from the physiology of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction to viral latency and healthy longevity in the context of the creation of the innate immune system of bacteria. See also: The tipping point (revisited): 73,000 publications May 16, 2018 In less than one month, nearly 1000 publications have been added to the…

Laws of biology vs no laws of physics

There Are No Laws of Physics. There’s Only the Landscape In Einstein’s view, if we probed the essence of physics deeply enough, there would be one and only one way in which all the components — matter, radiation, forces, space and time — would fit together to make reality work, just as the gears, springs, dials and wheels of a mechanical clock uniquely combine to keep time. Reported as:  Physicist concludes there are no laws of physics It was June…

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. Have you considered…

Animal welfare vs human ethology

Dairy cattle welfare as a result of human-animal relationship – a review …negligence in this area is one of the reasons for public disinformation regarding the level of animal welfare. Negligence in all areas of animal welfare can be attributed to human ethologists. The history of their pseudoscientific nonsense extends back through the decades to the late Irenhaus Eibl-Eibesfeleldt, who was the “father of human ethology.” His 848 page Human Ethology textbook is still the best example of how one book…

Biologically uninformed science idiot: Self-defense (3)

Summary: No ecosystems exist at any level of examination outside the context of the anti-entropic virucidal energy of light-activated endogenous substrates in all cell types of all living genera. The quantized energy-dependent creation of nucleotides links the creation of sunlight to fixation of energy in every organism on Earth.  Fixation of the energy is microRNA-mediated. The energy-dependent creation of microRNAs has been linked to healthy longevity via direct effects on organized genomes. For example, microRNAs typically biophysically constrain viral latency.…
