Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution (7)

RNA interference (RNAi) fails to protect all cell types from virus-driven energy theft. The effect on some cell types cannot be controlled. That’s because nutrient energy-dependent endogenosymbiosis and the pheromones-controlled physiology of reproduction protect the organized genomes of species from microbes to humans. Billions of waster dollars have been spent with no end to the waste in sight — until the Trump administration stops it. As that begins to happen, see: tRNA-mediated codon-biased translation in mycobacterial hypoxic persistence (open access)…

Coulombic interactions facilitate polycombic adaptation

RNA Structural Modules Control the Rate and Pathway of RNA Folding and Assembly Summary: Everything known to serious scientists about energy-dependent biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry is attributed to “Nature” and evolution with no consideration for where the energy came from or where it goes when viruses use it for their replication. See also: War Games: False Flag Terrorism (2) I baited Sean Ovis, and caused him to join a discussion on “The Battlefield.“Sean Ovis regurgitated parts of my…

A chemically active “sperm-catcher” revisited

This New Sex Science Changes Everything So, assuming we all agree that the act of creation is miraculous, worthy of our respect and admiration, can we begin to consider that male domination may not be a “God-given” tenet of our cultural dynamics? That the spear, bullet and nuclear weapon may not mirror our basic nature but perhaps be a departure from it, even a perversion? Can we posit that our genetic underpinnings are in fact much closer to precepts such…

The tipping point? 50,000 publications (3)

$121 Million Allocated By White House For Microbiome Study 5/16/16 Excerpt: The NMI recognizes that it’s important to study the microbiome across multiple ecosystems and organisms, and that the microbiome has an impact on a huge variety of problems in widely diverse areas, such as human health, agriculture, the environment, and weather and atmospheric disruptions. My comment: Energy-dependent differences in microRNA flanking sequences link the microbiome to metabolic networks and genetic networks of all invertebrates and vertebrates. More than 50,000…

From nothing to life and death everywhere

Astronomers in South Africa discover mysterious alignment of black holes Excerpt 1) This implies that there is a coherent spin in the structure of this volume of space that was formed from the primordial mass fluctuations that seeded the creation of the large-scale structure of the universe. Excerpt 2) “This is not obviously expected based on our current understanding of cosmology. It’s a bizarre finding.” Excerpt 3) A large-scale spin distribution has never been predicted by theories – and an…

Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine (3)

See also: Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine Ricki Lewis Time Machine (2) DNA video in real time. Show the amazing process of DNA transcription using amino acids to turn genes into proteins. My comment: The amino acids are nutrient-dependent and linked to supercoiled DNA by energy-dependent changes in the innate immune system. The innate immune system links metabolic networks and genetic networks to supercoiled DNA. The fact that the amino acid substitutions link the innate immune system to all biodiversity in…

Creating genes and species

The Octopus Genome: Not “Alien” but Still a Big Problem for Darwinism by Casey Luskin, August 24, 2015 Excerpt: Whenever you see “de novo” origin of a gene invoked, you know that evolutionary biologists lack any explanation for how that gene arose. My comment: I tend to use the experience-dependent “de novo” creation of olfactory receptor genes as an example of how RNA-mediated events link physics, chemistry, and biology from atoms to ecosystems via the conserved molecular mechanisms of biophysically…

ASCP MLS certification

The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) is a professional association based in Chicago, Illinois encompassing 130,000 pathologists and laboratory professionals. (MLS is the acronym for Medical Laboratory Scientist) I received this notice today from the American Society for Clinical Pathology: Excerpt: Dear James V Kohl, MLS(ASCP)CM, Congratulations on successful completion of the ASCP Board of Certification (BOC) Certification Maintenance Program. Your MLS certification is now valid through August 31, 2018. You will receive a new CMP wall certificate within…

Vitamin B3 and DNA repair

Role of Nicotinamide in DNA Damage, Mutagenesis, and DNA Repair Conclusion: Nicotinamide, which is the dietary precursor for NAD+, provides a substrate for PARP-1 activity…. In various murine models, PARP-1 inhibition was shown to favor apoptotic cell death, reduce inflammatory response, and reduce genomic sensitivity to various carcinogens. However, extrapolation of these data to human, particularly when physiological regimes involved in human carcinogenesis, should be done cautiously. Further studies are needed to determine the effect of high-dose nicotinamide on in…

Epigenetics Skeptism

Thanks to Joost G. Wouters for the alert to this nonsense: 1) Michael White in Pacific Standard magazine flatly states that “Epigenetics Is Not Revolutionizing Biology.” 2) Adrian Bird points out in the journal Cell that many of the field’s assumptions and promises remain unproven and are perhaps excessive. 1) White’s article sketches the field’s promise and hype, from questionable ‪epigenetic‬ diets and wild claims about controlling genes with your thoughts. He follows with a summary of epigenetics, then runs…
