Let there be anti-entropic virucidal light

Summary: This is a lie! …theories are too detailed to be included in models that study host-phage interactions in the long term, which hinders our understanding of systems that range from pathogens infecting gut bacteria to marine phage shaping present and future oceans. Fuelling the future In his short story ‘Let There Be Light’, the science-fiction author Robert A Heinlein introduced the energy source that would power his Future History series of stories and novels. In The Darwin Code, Greg…

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…

Odor activation of ATP (2)

Metabolic Regulation of Cytoplasmic DNA Synthesis (1974) The curve that results when the rate of DNA synthesis is plotted as a function of ATP concentration is sigmoidal, suggesting that more than one site on the enzyme interacts with ATP and that these sites are acting cooperatively. Odor activation of ATP is the obvious link to RNA-mediated feedback loops that control the food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction via the rate of DNA repair in species from microbes to humans. See:…

Light-controlled cell biology (revisited)

See Sci-Bay Scholar for citations and downloads of more than 3300 published works that link viruses to microRNAs Summary: …either the organized genomes of all cell types use the energy source, or viruses use the biophysically constrained energy of the cell types. No extant species can be used as an example of how the virus-driven theft of quantized energy can be linked from natural selection to the evolution of a new species. See also, with my emphasis: Light Offers New…

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…

Do not refute cherished theories

Synopsis: All serious scientist know that pre-mRNAs (now known as microRNAs in more than 70,000 published works) do not create themselves. For comparison, Ricki Lewis fails to mention how fertility is biophysically constrained by by the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy, the creation of enzymes (e.g, ATP synthase), the creation of ATP, the creation of microRNAs, and the RNA-mediated creation of hormones and receptors that link achiral glycine in position 6 of the GnRH decapeptide to all experience-dependent…

MicroRNA-activated / RNA-mediated gene expression

Summary: All patterns exist only in the context of the de novo creation of  enzymes and energy-dependent microRNAs that link light-activated endogenous substrates from what is known about particle physics to biophysically constrained viral latency in the cell biology game: Cytosis. See also: miRNA activation is an endogenous gene expression pathway Moving forward: Few people are likely to ask about the origin (i.e., the de novo creation) of energy-dependent microRNAs. Fewer still will link the creation of quantized energy as…

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: From Asimov to Bear (5)

Summary: Neil deGrasse Tyson and Lawrence Krauss are among those who have continued to substitute pseudoscientific nonsense for legitimate facts, which is what Hawking did in every book he ever wrote, and each time he made a spurious claim based on his abilities as a conniving theorist whose works still have not been confirmed-and-validated. Now that he is gone, others may proclaim the greatness of his intellect and lionize the magnitude of his influence because they also are biologically uninformed…

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (3)

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (2) “Teilhardism And The New Religion: A Thorough Analysis of the Teachings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin”, p.18, TAN Books The evolutionist thesis has become more stringently unthinkable than ever before. — Dr. Wolfgang Smith (2015). A Chat with Information Scientist Pedro Marijuán (2017) I’ve based my informational scheme of the cell on this thinking of “distinction on the adjacent” — where molecular recognition is the essential phenomenon over which biological complexity…
