Light-activated feedback loops vs self-organization of ecosystems

John Lieff has been trying to update his ridiculous misrepresentations of biologically-based cause and effect to match the accurate representations we made in a section on molecular epigenetics in our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review. From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior Nothing can stop him, but this will provide the next source for material that he must borrow as if he learned about it somewhere else.

Harvard researchers support young earth creationism

A conserved NAD+ binding pocket that regulates protein-protein interactions during aging March 24, 2017 (Science) Reported as: Also reported as:  It’s Happening: Scientists Can Now Reverse DNA Ageing in Mice Excerpts: When we’re born, all of our cells have the ability to repair DNA damage, which we experience constantly through random mutations when our cells divide, or whenever we go out in the sun. But as we get older, our ability to patch up this damage declines, and our cells…

Cytosis: A Cell Biology Board Game

Cytosis: A Cell Biology Board Game A board game taking place inside a human cell! Players compete to build enzymes, hormones and receptors and fend off attacking Viruses! 3/27/17 My comment: On March 24, 2017 this article was published in ‘Science.’ A conserved NAD+ binding pocket that regulates protein-protein interactions during aging The article linked virus-driven energy theft from hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution to all pathology. On March 24, 2017 this article also was published in…

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (3)

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (2) Thanks to Magnus S. Magnusson for calling my attention to this. He claimed it is an example of wonderful science. It is an example of pseudoscientific nonsense! We Can Now Harness the Tardigrade’s Strangest Superpower – and Give It to Other Organisms …tardigrades produce a special type of ‘bioglass’ that holds their essential proteins and molecules in a suspended state until they’re rehydrated back to life. The nutrient energy-dependent de novo creation of…

Thinking about energy is not radical re-thinking

The brain: a radical rethink is needed to understand it …Optogenetics, a technique that uses genetic modification of neurons so that their electrical activity can be controlled with light pulses – can help us to explore their specific contribution to brain function. Optogenetics links the speed of light on contact with water to what is known about all energy-dependent cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera. Serious scientists, for example, have linked angstroms to ecosystems in all living…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (3)

See: Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (2) Let’s make peer review scientific …peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific. Here’s another failed attempt to put top-down causation back into the context of peer review. Electron transfer between anatase TiO2 and an O2 molecule directly observed by atomic force microscopy…

Sunlight: the essence of precision medicine and world peace

See for review: The essence of precision medicine See for comparison: We not only reject Trump’s values and policies, we also renew our commitment to a future where both the church and the academy will foster attitudes and actions so that human beings and the whole of creation can thrive. We join our hearts, our minds, our voices, and our actions with those of religious believers–Christians, Jews, Muslims, and people of all faiths, as well as with secular people of…

The essence of precision medicine: drug targets or healthy longevity?

The molecular epigenetics of healthy longevity Trichome, a Functional Diversity Phenotype in Plant Abstract: Trichomes play a very important role in the process of evolution for plant which are epidermal appendages covering the surface of plants. In this paper, some progress concerning the genes responsible for trichome formation is presented for monocots and dicotyledons plants. Meanwhile, the special structures and physiological functions of trichome are briefly introduced, such as reflectance, energy balance, ultraviolet protection, drought resistance, gas exchange, insect resistance…

Energy-dependent allelic imbalances, viruses, and pathology

Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference poster presentation February 15, 2017 KRAS Allelic Imbalance Enhances Fitness and Modulates MAP Kinase Dependence in Cancer February 23, 2017 These studies demonstrate that serial genetic changes at the Kras/KRAS locus are frequent in cancer and modulate competitive fitness and MEK dependency. Reported as: Genetic ‘balance’ may influence response to cancer treatment Taylor developed mathematical algorithms and software to analyze relative dosage of mutant KRAS and normal KRAS in tumor cells from…

Theistic evolutionists fight back and lose (2)

For a historical perspective on the amount of ignorance theistic evolutionists and atheists have repeatedly displayed as they ignored everything known about the energy-dependent RNA-mediated de novo creation of genes, see: The heat shock response is self-regulated at both the transcriptional and posttranscriptional levels (1982) Thirty-five years later, there is another clear indication that theorists and atheists will never consider the fact that there must be an anti-entropic virucidal source of energy. See for example: HSP90 Shapes the Consequences of…
