Controlled amino acid treatment of all pathology

Amino acid studies.com Excerpt: One of the cancer treatments that seems to be proving effective over time is CAAT: Controlled Amino Acid Treatment. CAAT works by restricting certain amino acids from the diet to combat the growth and reproduction of the cancerous cells. Excerpt: doctors can now actively battle cancers, using the best weapons possible, natural amino acids, which are actually designed to make changes in the body. The trick has been to understand which changes are beneficial to cancer…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy

This is a multi-part series. See also: Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (2-6) Pain from Cells that Are Not Neurons Introduction: Recent research on pain shows a very surprising result. A new type of neuroplasticity has been discovered… My comment: It’s discovery does not make it a new type of neuroplasticity. Discoveries like this attest only to the ignorance of theorists who have never considered the role that virus-driven energy theft plays in all pathology. Excerpt 1) Injuries produce ATP…

Survivors of RNA-mediated terrorism

In Darwin’s Radio and Darwin’s Children, Greg Bear predicted there would be ecologically adapted survivors of the forthcoming viral apocalypse.  Could his “raw insight” help to save you, or help to save any of your loved ones who are not already dead? Or, is it too late for us all? See: “The Darwin Code: Intelligent Design without God” Excerpt:  Once again, evolution is a fresh territory, much larger than anyone thought. The Darwin code–the key to all of our new…

Building delicious base pairs in class. It’s elementary Watson and Crick

 Candy DNA https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-72XtdR9SrgE/WC6D1cZx_TI/AAAAAAAAecg/bIVDL6mH4jE_HEJ8kxg16mzQj97tH5mkQCLcB/w400-h247-p/candy-chromosomes-Clinical-Laboratory-Blogspot-com.jpg Building delicious A- T and G – C pairs This might be the best way to show students that base pair changes are nutrient energy-dependent and biophysically constrained by autophagy in the context of the physiology of reproduction, which links them to chromosomes as the units of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. For example, the educator could start by telling them that if the base pair changes were not biophysically constrained by the chemistry of RNA-mediated protein folding, the…

Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution

RNA interfernce in “evolution” My comment: What evolved? See for comparison: Energy-dependent RNA-mediated biophysically constrained protein folding chemistry in the context of ecological adaptation.

Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory

Multi-omic data integration enables discovery of hidden biological regularities   Excerpt: Tracing the central dogma of biology (left column), we can link specific data types (middle column) to explain each of these biological processes. In this work, novel biological regularities that relate these processes are discovered through: (i) primary omics data (top box, right column) and (ii) integration with GEMs (bottom box, right column).   Excerpt: The approach directly addresses the BD2K grand challenge and is made conceptually accessible by…

Biological evolution as a philosophy, not a science

There is no indication in the abstracts that any of the presenters are going to address the facts that link quantised energy to polycombic ecological adaptation and virus-driven energy theft from hecatombic evolution to all pathology in all living genera. Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor (2016) provides details on the hecatombin evolution of all patholgoy From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) provides details on the polycombic ecological adaptation of all healthy longevity. For these experts to address…

Carl Woese was wrong

Carl R. Woese Excerpt: Using ribosomal RNA sequence as an evolutionary measure, his laboratory provided a phylogenetically valid system of classification for prokaryotes; the revised classification of the archaebacteria was a product of these studies.  His research later focused on defining ancestral gene families, determining the evolution of cellular translation, and tracing the origin of the genetic code. See for comparison: Nascent Proteome Remodeling following Homeostatic Scaling at Hippocampal Synapses Excerpt: …although it has not been explicitly addressed here, it…

The natural success of RNAi and failed treatment

see my other blog posts on m6A Dynamics of Human and Viral RNA Methylation during Zika Virus Infection Excerpt: …ZIKV infection alters m6A location in mRNAs, methylation motifs, and target genes modified by methyltransferases. Our results identify a mechanism by which ZIKV interacts with and alters host cell functions. Reported as: Zika virus infection alters human and viral RNA Excerpt: When Zika virus infects a human cell, Rana’s team found, the cell modifies viral RNA with m6A as a means…

From angstroms to ecosystems

How a happy moment for neuroscience is a sad moment for science Systems neuroscience is celebrating a landmark, but one that shows the way we do science is broken. Excerpt: These data are the first complete set of neural activity recordings released before publication. No papers preceded it; not even a report. Nothing. Just: here you go guys, the fruits of the joint labour of around 100 people over 4 years.” My comment: They released the information on June 13,…

  • What Darwin proved: there’s no such thing as a species
    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species. By: Emily Singer August 5, 2014 Excerpt: “Scientists have dubbed such regions of the genome “islands of speciation.” The persistence of such islands is a phenomenon that has been observed in a variety of […]
