The 6-part series on Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability that ran here between 5/12/17 and 5/22/17 predictably links facts about energy-dependent microRNA-mediated chromosomal inheritance to the end of all the stupid theories that were touted by Gene Levinson in Rethinking Evolution: The Revolution That’s Hiding in Plain Sight (2021) See first: RNAi 2002 to AI 2021 (8) Light-activated microRNA biogenesis obviously links God’s energy-dependent Creation of the cell wall across kingdoms via: Biogenesis and Mechanisms of miRNA-Mediated Gene Regulation…

Prebiotic amino acids bind to and stabilize prebiotic fatty acid membranes 8/12/19 To test whether the inclusion of amino acids addresses this problem, we coupled direct techniques of cryoelectron microscopy and fluorescence microscopy Reported as:  First cells may have emerged because building blocks of proteins stabilized membranes 8/12/19 The stability of membranes is hydrogen-bond (pH) dependent. Nothing known to intelligent serious scientists about top-down causation suggests that stability of cell membranes automagically emerged. See for comparison:  microRNA More than 133,000…

Happy New Year. Got SARS-Cov-2 or one of its synthetic mRNA vaccine-induced variants yet? SARS-CoV-2 expresses a microRNA-like small RNA able to selectively repress host genes 12/28/21 …we unexpectedly discovered a viral miRNA-like small RNA, named CoV2-miR-O7a (for SARS-CoV-2 miRNA-like ORF7a-derived small RNA). Its abundance ranges from low to moderate as compared to host miRNAs and it associates with Argonaute proteins-core components of the RNA interference pathway. For a historical perspective on the role of microRNA-like small RNAs in viruses,…

For more facts that link RNAi to young earth creationism and AI to pseudoscientific nonsense, see: DNA from dirt can offer new view of ancient life 7/12/21 The new study adds to a handful of others to show the power of DNA from ancient soils. No experimental evidence of biophysically constrained energy-dependent top-down creation of soil types exists that extends the dating from Biblical Genesis beyond the past 5-10,000 years. That fact places God’s Creation of energy-as-information into the context…

Summary: Intelligent serious scientists have linked energy-dependent RNA interference (RNAi) to all biodiversity on Earth. For comparison, biologically uninformed theorists have nothing but mathematical models and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology  (2001) …the affect of pheromones on our emotions is linked to the effect of pheromones on the hormones of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis –an unconscious affect. Based upon a detailed mammalian neuroendocrine model, Kohl [15] proposed that LH is the measurable link between sex and the…

Merry Christmas 2021! Summary: microRNA-mediated cures for all virus-driven pathology have been linked from the 2002 Breakthrough of the Year: Small RNAs (12/19/02) to the 2021 Breakthrough of the year: Protein structures for all (12/16/21) via light-activated carbon fixation and biophysically constrained naturally-attenuated viral endemicity/latency in species from cyanobacteria to humans. As presciently predicted in Biblical Genesis, the physiology of pheromone-regulated genetic processes is required. That fact has been exemplified in at least 3 different patents, all of which attest…

A clear indicator of what is required to end the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic was published as: Host cell entry mediators implicated in the cellular tropism of SARS‑CoV‑2, the pathophysiology of COVID‑19 and the identification of microRNAs that can modulate the expression of these mediators (Review) 12/20/21 The pathophysiology of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19) is mainly dependent on the underlying mechanisms that mediate the entry of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‑CoV‑2) into the host cells of the various human tissues/organs.…

“Dead” nucleotides are biophysically constrained pH-dependent single nucleotide substitutions (SNPs). See first: microRNA-mediated cures (4) Remember what’s been known for decades about dead nucleotides, nucleotide substitutions that are biophysically constrained, when you read about the prevention of bioterrorism and public health fascism in Imagination and remembrance: what role should historical epidemiology play in a world bewitched by mathematical modelling of COVID-19 and other epidemics? 6/7/21 …every established respiratory pandemic of the last 130 years has caused seasonal waves of infection…

See first:  microRNA-mediated cures (2) For comparison to Genetic variations creating microRNA target sites…, and Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution, Masatoshi Nei claimed that nucleotide substitutions, insertion/deletion, segmental gene duplication, genomic duplication, changes in gene regulatory systems, transposition of genes, horizontal gene transfer et al., were mutations. Simply put, simple-minded theorists start with the idea that everything the happens to our supercoiled DNA is a mutation and they link mutations to evolution across billions to millions of years after energy-emerged from the…

See first: Naturally attenuated viral endemicity (10) All effective cancer therapies and drug therapies are energy-dependent and microRNA-mediated. Princeton team disables long-targeted gene behind spread of major cancers 11/29/21 This discovery has its roots in 2004 research in which Princeton scientists identified a gene implicated in metastatic breast cancer, called metadherin, or MTDH. Prevent obfuscation of facts that link energy-dependent changes in single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in microRNAs to all effective cancer treatments via the RBP-noncoding RNA regulation network.
