Autophagy in health and disease (1)

Novel Treatment Strategies for the Nervous System: Circadian Clock Genes, Non-coding RNAs, and Forkhead Transcription Factors Each of these pathways have an intimate relationship with the programmed death pathways of autophagy and apoptosis and share a common link to the silent mating type information regulation 2 homolog 1 (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) (SIRT1) and the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR). Circadian clock genes are necessary to modulate autophagy, limit cognitive loss, and prevent neuronal injury. Non-coding RNAs can control neuronal stem cell…

MicroRNA-activated / RNA-mediated gene expression

Summary: All patterns exist only in the context of the de novo creation of  enzymes and energy-dependent microRNAs that link light-activated endogenous substrates from what is known about particle physics to biophysically constrained viral latency in the cell biology game: Cytosis. See also: miRNA activation is an endogenous gene expression pathway Moving forward: Few people are likely to ask about the origin (i.e., the de novo creation) of energy-dependent microRNAs. Fewer still will link the creation of quantized energy as…
