Impeaching the God of Abraham (9)

In “Impeaching the God of Abraham (7) I linked achiral glycine in position 6 of the GnRH decapeptide from peptide synthesis at the origin of life to the patent for naturally occurring light-activated carbon fixation and protonated RNA interference. See also: Regulatory Mechanisms of Vitellogenesis in Insects 1/28/21 …microRNA (miRNA) and nutritional (amino acid/Target of Rapamycin and insulin) pathways interplay with JH and 20E signaling cascades to control insect vitellogenesis.

The tipping point (revisited): 102K (1)

See first:  The tipping point (revisited): 101K (1) 4/22/20 and Vaccines do not control pandemics (1) 5/15/20 Genetic inactivation of the translin/trax microRNA-degrading enzyme phenocopies the robust adiposity induced by Translin (Tsn) deletion 5/11/20 They linked virus-driven changes in light-activated energy-dependent differences in hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution from microRNA flanking sequences to the degradation of messenger RNA and all obesity-linked diseases via changes in the potential of hydrogen (pH).

Quantum initiation of cold chemistry vs Hypeology (3)

See: Quantum initiation of cold chemistry vs Hypeology (2) Facts about the quantized energy-dependent creation of reverse transcriptase, an enzyme that converts a sequence in an RNA molecule into a sequence in a DNA molecule, have been placed into the context of social organization. Social organization: The thermodynamic basis The objective of this work is to establish the connection between energy engineering and social organization and to bring social organization under the big tent of physics. Reported as: How physics…

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…

Part 2: Light-controlled cell biology (revisited)

Greg Bear took the lead with this approach in his novel Quantico (2006). A genetically engineered virus was used to erase the memory of a specifically targeted human population to reduce inter-ethnic conflict. [Greg Bear] …served as a consultant for NASA, the U.S. Army, the State Department, the International Food Protection Association, and Homeland Security on matters ranging from privatizing space to food safety, the frontiers of microbiology and genetics, and biological security. Greg Bear is a likely candidate for…

Conceptual critique: Innateness vs the death gene (1)

Summary: The term innate is used in psychological explanations. The so-called explanations ignore facts about the light energy-dependent activation of endogenous substrates. The anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight links the endogenous substrates to biophysically constrained viral latency and healthy longevity via the physiology of reproduction in all living genera. “Proximate mechanisms” and “evolution” are terms used by biologically uninformed theorists. That fact becomes perfectly clear in the context of  The conceptual critique of innateness (paywalled) One proposal is that innateness can…

Subatomic: From thermophiles to humans (3)

Summary: RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from insects to primates can be linked from claims about the lower percentage of food energy-dependent DNA methylation in Diet and cell size both affect queen-worker differentiation through DNA methylation in honey bees (Apis mellifera, Apidae) to the conclusion from “Cryo-electron tomography reveals that dynactin recruits a team of dyneins for processive motility.” See also: Starfish reveal the origins of brain messenger molecules (February 9, 2016) One of the neuropeptides found is similar…

The overwhelming ignorance of sex researchers

Summary: J. Michael Bailey, and others like him, pretend to not know how non-coding variants are epigenetically linked from differences in hydrogen bonds to all energy-dependent biophysically constrained morphological and behavioral phenotypes. Genome-Wide Association Study of Male Sexual Orientation [Energy-dependent changes in biophysically constrained viral latency] We identified several [energy-dependent changes in] SNPs with p < 10−5, including regions of multiple supporting SNPs on chromosomes 13 (minimum p = 7.5 × 10−7) and 14 (p = 4.7 × 10−7). The genes nearest to these peaks have functions plausibly relevant to…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (2)

Summary: Endogenous RNA interference is the energy-dependent epigenetic link from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency. The stress-linked virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA has been linked to all pathology. Three Americans win Nobel medicine prize for body rhythm work [But they failed to link Americanism to Creationism] I predicted that Wen Zhou would win for linking the energy-dependent creation of G protein-coupled receptors to all biodiversity via olfaction and the space-time continuum in the context of…
