microRNA-mediated biodiversity (2)

From microRNA-mediated biodiversity (1) See for comparison my blog posts that mention: glycine, which start with Epigenetic regulation of aging by glycine and GnRH 5/26/15 The focus here is on vertebrates, but the conserved molecular mechanisms extend across all species. Who else is watching science journalist John Hewitt continue on his collision course with reality? In Myelin is a gift from retroviruses 2/1/22, he again fails to link light-activated carbon fixation in cyanobacteria to biophysically constrained naturally attenuated viral endemicity…

I started this series to show biologically uninformed evolutionary theorist that all intelligent serious scientists know how stupid the theorists have always been A clinical and in-silico study of MicroRNA-21 and growth differentiation factor-15 expression in pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes and diabetic nephropathy 2/1/22 RESULTS: MicroRNA-21 was found to directly target GDF15 downregulating transcription factors KLF4, TP53, and CEBPB. A significant difference in the levels of serum GDF15 was observed in Pre-diabetes (708.56 ±76.37), T2DM (1528.87 ±140.75) and DN patients…

“The Darwin Code: Intelligent Design without God” (4)

De novo mutation rates at the single-mutation resolution in a human HBB gene-region associated with adaptation and genetic disease, published by Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory Press, was reported as Study uncovers first evidence of long-term directionality in origination of human mutation, challenging neo-Darwinism  1/31/22 Directionality is energy-dependent. If this was the first study of long-term energy-dependent directionality, how did Greg Bear get so far ahead of the evidence on energy-dependent biophysically constrained human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) via “…the treatment afforded…

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…

microRNA-mediated cures (10)

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.…
