The eternal significance of microRNAs (1)

Common Allele Linked to Sugar Consumption Leads to Lower Body Fat, Higher Blood Pressure One energy-dependent change in a base pair is linked from the FGF21 rs838133 variant to microRNA-mediated changes in morphology and behavior. The quantized energy as information link from microRNAs to morphology and behavior is common to my mouse-to-human model of sympatric speciation. By linking the common allele to sugar consumption, the authors attest to the fact that sympatric speciation is quantized energy-dependent. Energy as information biophysically constrains…

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (4)

Saying Goodbye to the RNA World Theory RNA has a limited ability for catalysis compared to peptides, and would have struggled to maintain its catalytic activity under the changing temperature conditions of early Earth. Carter and Wills also argued that if an RNA world existed, it would have been unlikely for it to incorporate peptides later on. See for comparison: Dependence of RNA synthesis in isolated thymus nuclei on glycolysis, oxidative carbohydrate catabolism and a type of “oxidative phosphorylation” (1964)…

From photons to the proton motive force (1)

Conclusion: If you would like to learn how to link quantized energy-dependent changes in atoms to ecosystems in all living genera via the physiology of reproduction, join others age 10+ who will be playing this game in September 2018. Fly’s Blood-Brain Barrier Has Circadian Rhythms “the anatomic characteristics of insect and vertebrate BBB structures are quite distinct.” The molecular mechanisms are conserved. My comment to The Scientist: Feedback of the Drosophila period gene product on circadian cycling of its messenger…

Anti-entropic sunlight: Schrödinger’s Creationist Secret? (5)

Anti-entropic sunlight: Schrödinger’s Creationist Secret? (3) The list of those scheduled to present has changed. Michael Rosbash has been added. John E. Walker is not scheduled, which suggests that everyone else already knows that the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy is the link from the creation of ATP to the creation of RNA and all biophysically constrained viral latency via feedback loops and the physiology of reproduction. Rosbash, as all serious scientists know,  started with energy-dependent changes in…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (10)

Linda Buck, Ben Feringa, Michael Gazzaniga, Christof Koch, Nick Lane and Svante Paabo are among the presenters who will almost undoubtedly discuss some or all of my claims. Prepare to ask questions or intelligently discuss accurate representations of top-down causation by watching this: The energy-dependent creation of the microRNAome protects the organized genomes of all living genera from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that links mutations to all pathology. See: The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue…
