A mental health problem at the highest level (3)

Summary: It has been 75 years since Erwin Schrödinger exposed the pseudoscientific nonsense of mutation-driven evolution in the lecture series that was published as What is Life? (1944) The mental health of so-called science journalists must be addressed. Many of them seem to be pathological liars or, at best biologically uninformed science idiots who cannot link physics and chemistry from molecular epigenetics to all energy-dependent biodiversity on Earth. The Biggest Myth In Quantum Physics by Ethan Siegel Conclusion: Take ourselves…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (3)

One way to recognize a Sokalian hoax is to determine whether the claims can be linked from gravity or from the speed of light on contact with water to feedback loops that biophysically constrain viral latency and all biodiversity in all living genera. See: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction See for comparison: Chiromagnetic nanoparticles and gels Reported as: Nanoparticle gel controls twisted light with magnetism The trick, the researchers found, was to twist the nanoparticles themselves by coating them…

New Testament Book Cover Refutes Theistic Evolution

Video of Biology of the Book Goats, bookworms, a monk’s kiss: Biologists reveal the hidden history of ancient gospels Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils. See: Protein power by Robert F. Service …methods to sequence amino acids lag behind DNA sequencing. The report of 300 million year old proteins is based on ridiculous theories that failed to include what was known about…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (5)

Summary: Emmy Noethe’s theorems were developed in the early 1900’s. Richard Feynman inadvertently or purposefully alluded to them as examples of human idiocy. Discover Magazine resurrected the examples of human idiocy in a 2017 article. For comparison, Choi et al., (2017) support the claims that intercellular and interkingdom communication is energy-dependent and controlled by the metabolism of food energy to pheromones. It is obvious that pheromones biophysically constrain the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. That fact links everything currently known…

Energy-dependent microRNA biogenesis

Published May 3, 2017 Genetic variation and RNA structure regulate microRNA biogenesis …primary sequence determinants and RNA structure are key regulators of miRNA biogenesis. Genetic variation aka primary sequence determinants are energy-dependent and RNA-mediated. Energy-dependent RNA methylation is an experience-dependent link from natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality. Natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality links ATP-dependent microRNA biogenesis to RNA biosynthesis. Ridiculous attempts to portray energy-dependent top-down causation as if genetic variation came first may continue for another 52 years.…

Epigenetically-effected nucleosome repositioning sheds Dobzhansky’s light on evolution

Crystal structure of the overlapping dinucleosome composed of hexasome and octasome My summary: Nucleosomes are dynamic entities that are repositioned by energy-dependent links from sunlight to ATP and RNA biosynthesis that act on DNA during the chromatin remodeling, which is biophysically constrained by the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction during the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all morphological and behavioral phentoypes. processes. Reported as: Unveiling how nucleosome repositioning occurs to shed light on genetic diseases …an incomplete formation of overlapping dinucleosome may…

RNA editing refutes theistic evolution

Charge-altering releasable transporters (CARTs) for the delivery and release of mRNA in living animals January 9, 2017 Reported February 19, 2017 as A new way Forward for Gene Therapy If you want an explanation of how mRNA works within a cell, check out the video above from the Khan Academy. Unfortunately, the speaker seems to think that sickle-cell disease is caused by a mutation. All serious scientists know that the hemoglobin S variant is a biophysically constrained nutrient energy-dependent ecological…

George Church refutes theistic evolution

Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series (WALS) – The future of genetic codes and BRAIN codes The NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series, colloquially known as WALS, is the highest-profile lecture program at the NIH. The future of genetic codes and BRAIN codes (video) My comment on the video: Biophysically constrained genetic codes are brain codes. They link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA via metabolic networks, which link energy as information to all cell type differentiation in…

Fighting for virus-driven pathology

See my series of 5 posts on the tipping point, which was reached when more than 50,000 indexed publications mentioned microRNAs The tipping point? 50, 000 publications May 16, 2016 See also: MicroRNA analysis in mouse neuro-2a cells after pseudorabies virus infection A total of eight viral miRNA were identified, and ten host miRNAs showed significantly different expression upon PRV infection. Among these, five were analyzed by stem-loop RT-qPCR, which confirmed the above data. Interestingly, these viral miRNAs were mainly…

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine (5)

See: Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine (4) Microenvironmental autophagy promotes tumour growth …non-cell-autonomous autophagy is induced both in the tumour microenvironment and systemically… transformed cells engage surrounding normal cells as active and essential microenvironmental contributors to early tumour growth through nutrient-generating autophagy. Non-cell autonomous autophagy links non-random natural selection for codon optimality from the nutrient energy-dependent pherormone-controlled physiology of reproduction to biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry via fixation of amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA. The supercoiled DNA links…
