microRNA-mediated replication timing (3)

miRNAs; a novel strategy for the treatment of COVID-19 6/28/21 Several previous studies have shown that host miRNAs play an anti-viral role and improve the treatment of patients with COVID-19. miRNAs by binding to the 3′-UTR or 5′-UTR of viral RNA play an important role in COVID-19-host interplay and viral replication. That fact makes it easier to convict Facebook of crimes against humanity because their censors prevent me from including links to, and to which expose the scientific…

Pheromones protect us from viruses (3)

Creationists link God’s sunlight-activated generation of energy from ambient humidity and the anaerobic production of magnetite in marine microbes to electron transfer. That is how they link the ATP-dependent Creation of RNA to ammonia detection via fixation of amino acid substitutions in protein nanowires. See: Harnessing Electricity-Producing Bacteria 3/2/21 Simply put: When humans eat, their bodies convert sugars from food into electrons. These electrons transfer to oxygen to produce energy that powers the metabolic processes of the cell. It is…

Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled feedback loops

Summary: The link from positive selection to one food energy-dependent base pair change and fixation of the mouse-model-to-human-specific EDAR V370A allele in populations on different continents attests to sympatric speciation at every level of examination that refutes the pseudoscientific nonsense of neo-Darwinian mutation-driven evolution. Reported on 5/3/18 as: SWAT team of immune cells found in mother’s milk  1) “There is a feedback loop,” says Yu. It’s known that some immune cells like leucocytes, another white blood cell that fights infection,…

Environmental selection is natural selection (2)

I believe that if you put enough biologically uniformed theorists in the same room, they will invent more theories to support the pseudoscientific nonsense they have touted in the past. See for example: Environmental selection during the last ice age on the mother-to-infant transmission of vitamin D and fatty acids through breast milk Acknowledgments The synthesis presented here is a product of the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s 2017 annual meeting, as the ideas came together in the…

A Mathematical Model Links Quantum Physics to Quantum Souls (1)

Historical facts: All energy-dependent cell type differentiation is biophysically constrained by the de novo creation of microRNAs and enzymes that metabolize food and drugs. All food energy-dependent metabolism occurs in the context of microRNA-mediated cause and effect and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. The food energy-dependent pheromone controlled physiology of reproduction in bacteria links what organisms eat to the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of their morphological and behavioral phenotypes. The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA has been linked to all pathology…

Kinetically Stable Thermodynamically Activated Cell Metabolism (5)

Summary: Remember, the kinetically stable thermodynamic biocatalytic cascade for optical detection of three amino acids used two detection pathways that linked a measurement of UV light and NADH at 340 nm to the conversion of NADH to a visible color, which was observable at 580 nm. That fact refutes all claims about the evolution of amino acids, the evolution of proteins, and the evolution of any species. The light energy-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions are biophysically constrained by the physiology…

Light, behavior and autophagy, a gender-specific risk factor

Structure of photosystem II and substrate binding at room temperature Excerpt: PS II, a membrane-bound multi-subunit pigment protein complex, couples the one-electron photochemistry at the reaction centre with the four-electron redox chemistry of water oxidation at the Mn4CaO5 cluster in the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC). New, detailed snapshots capture photosynthesis at room temperature The living machinery responsible for photosynthesis – while commonplace and essential to life on Earth – is still not fully understood. It is understood at every level of…

Top-down adaptation vs bottom-up evolution

Who rules the waves? – Viruses might just be bit players in the drama of the seas. Then again, they could be major actors Excerpt: Most consider viruses to be a legion of cripples, sterilised by ultraviolet radiation and rendered impotent by hosts that are largely immune to their threat. But a few researchers take the opposite view. And if they turn out to be right, viruses could radically alter the balance of life in the oceans, ripping away huge…
