The eternal significance of microRNAs (8)

Use of definitions in attempts to explain any aspect of species-specific biophysically constrained cell type differentiation and aging has been replaced by the use of model systems of biological processes.  Biological processes can be compared to so-called “evolutionary processes” to show that only biological processes need to be considered in the context of Darwin’s “conditions of life” or answers to the the question  What is Life? Schrödinger (1944). K. L. Mettinger et al. (eds.), Exosomes, Stem Cells and MicroRNA, Advances…

Kohl’s Laws of Biology (codon-optimality revisited)

Summary: Kohl’s Laws help to explain what was missing from Darwin’s ‘conditions of life.’ Darwin knew nothing about genetics, which means he knew nothing about the epigenetic effects of food odors or pheromones. Ancient hepatitis B viruses from the Bronze Age to the Medieval period 5/7/18 We provide evidence for the creation of HBV genotype A via recombination, and for a long-term association of modern HBV genotypes with humans, including the discovery of a human genotype that is now extinct.…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (7)

Sales of human pheromone-enhanced fragrance products have been virtually eliminated by the pseudoscientific nonsense touted by neo-Darwinian theorists and Big Bang cosmologists. I may revisit their ridiculous claims at ScentofEros.com and Pheromones.com, but prefer to continue moving forward via my other domains: RNA-mediated.com and Autophagy.pro. Summary: 2018 Update: Sympatric speciation has been linked to species diversity as an example of an ecologically validated proof-of-concept in all living genera. Theorists, other psedoscientists and nearly all so-called science journalists have failed to…

ATP and RNA-mediated chromosomal stability

Cytosis, a cell biology game for ages 10+ links ATP to viral latency and the protection of all organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that serious scientists have linked to all pathology. It is time for a new measure of cell function: Quantifying Cellular ATP Production Rate…(2018) Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the most common high energy intermediate of living organisms. Cells utilize the energy derived from the breakdown of cellular fuels to synthesize ATP from ADP and…

A single base change refutes theistic evolution (2)

Announcing publication of a model that links the creation of quantized energy from changes in subatomic particles to biophysically constrained viral latency and sympatric speciation in all living genera. Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems This angstroms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptation links nutrient energy-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino acid substitutions to pheromone-controlled changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance and chromosomal rearrangements via the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans. The…

Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled feedback loops

Summary: The link from positive selection to one food energy-dependent base pair change and fixation of the mouse-model-to-human-specific EDAR V370A allele in populations on different continents attests to sympatric speciation at every level of examination that refutes the pseudoscientific nonsense of neo-Darwinian mutation-driven evolution. Reported on 5/3/18 as: SWAT team of immune cells found in mother’s milk  1) “There is a feedback loop,” says Yu. It’s known that some immune cells like leucocytes, another white blood cell that fights infection,…

Summary: See for comparison: Make ‘Em Resistant to Viruses In the new proposal — which Science says was released in advance of a meeting today — GP-write leaders say “ultrasafe” cells could be developed by making some 400,000 changes to the human genome.

Ecological Adaptations vs the Randomness of Evolution

Summary: Ecological variation is linked to ecological adaptations in all living genera via the creation of microRNAs and the sense of smell. Odor Perception on the Two Sides of the Brain: Consistency Despite Randomness Highlights •A random model predicts observed preservation of correlations in piriform responses •The model supports consistent agreement about odor quality among individuals The model fails to explain how the energy-dependent creation of microRNAs links pattern recognition to the creation of pre-mRNAs and biophysically constrained viral latency.…

Environmental selection is natural selection (2)

I believe that if you put enough biologically uniformed theorists in the same room, they will invent more theories to support the pseudoscientific nonsense they have touted in the past. See for example: Environmental selection during the last ice age on the mother-to-infant transmission of vitamin D and fatty acids through breast milk Acknowledgments The synthesis presented here is a product of the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s 2017 annual meeting, as the ideas came together in the…

Environmental selection is natural selection

Environmental selection during the last ice age on the mother-to-infant transmission of vitamin D and fatty acids through breast milk was published on April 23, 2018 The ectodysplasin A receptor (EDAR) gene has a range of pleiotropic effects, including sweat gland density, incisor shoveling, and mammary gland ductal branching. The frequency of the human-specific EDAR V370A allele appears to be uniquely elevated in North and East Asian and New World populations due to a bout of positive selection likely to…
