RNA-mediated nutritional psychiatry (2)

Codon identity regulates mRNA stability and translation efficiency during the maternal-to-zygotic transition The amino acid optimality code (Fig 6) provides an alternative perspective on sequence changes between paralogs in evolution and human disease. Neo-Darwinian theorists dispense with Darwin’s food energy-dependent  “conditions of life.” They link mutations and disease to evolution via mathematical models. They exemplify human idiocy. See for example: Neopterygian phylogeny: the merger assay Reported as: Adaptive radiations in the Mesozoic Bony fishes are the most diverse of all…

RNA-mediated nutritional psychiatry

Summary: Young Genes are Highly Disordered as Predicted by the Preadaptation Hypothesis of De Novo Gene Birth Stop this nonsense about de novo gene birth and you will help to stop the school shootings without more gun control. See my presentation at the 2017 Precision Medicine Virtual Conference (2/15/17) Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference See also: Pat Sweeney et al (3/13/2017) Protein misfolding in neurodegenerative diseases: implications and strategies.  A notable development is the creation of collaborative…

From base editing to RNA editing (5)

1) Maturity’ molecule helps adolescent brain grow up   2) Geneticists are starting to unravel evolution’s role in mental illness: Hints emerge that past environments could have influenced psychiatric disorders   Please try to link the maturity molecule to the evolution of mental illness outside the context of food energy-dependent base editing, RNA editing, RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction that stabilizes the organized genomes of all living genera via chromosomal rearrangements.   Then see:Oppositional COMT…

Physicians who practice evolutionary medicine?

Why Do Some Doctors Reject Evolution? Excerpt: After all, evolution is the foundational principle of biology, which, in turn, is the basic science that backs medicine. Ninety-eight percent of scientists, a closely related profession, accept evolution. My comment: I think they probably included too many social scientists who believe that evolutionary theory is something more than pseudoscientific nonsense. Excerpt: Unfortunately, there don’t seem to be great numbers on the percentage of doctors who accept evolution. My comment: Physicians who accept…

All of "like kind" in the (bigger) family

All in the (bigger) family Science 16 January 2015: Vol. 347 no. 6219 pp. 220-221 DOI: 10.1126/science.347.6219.220 by Elizabeth Pennisi Abstract: A decade of genetic data and other evidence has persuaded most researchers that insects and crustaceans, long considered widely separated branches of the arthropod family, actually belong together. The new arthropod tree puts hexapods—six-limbed creatures that include insects, springtails, and silverfish—as closer kin to crabs, lobster, shrimp, and crayfish than those “standard” crustaceans are to others such as seed…
