de novo Creation

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)…

Long-term adaptation replaces evolution (2)

The food energy-dependent “doubling up” on ‘junk DNA’ is biophysically constrained by the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. The metabolism of food to species-specific pheromones links the conserved molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera to healthy longevity via what is known about amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA, which link energy-dependent changes in chirality to autophagy. Supercoiled DNA is far more dynamic than the ‘Watson-Crick’ double … Researchers have imaged in unprecedented detail the…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (5)

Summary: If he was not still dead, the 1965 Nobel Laureate, Richard P. Feynman might claim that this year’s Physics Prize was awarded for “human idiocy.” Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded to LIGO Black Hole Researchers Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, pronounced in 1916, suggested that matter and energy would warp the geometry of space-time the way a heavy sleeper sags a mattress, producing the effect we call gravity. His equations described a universe in which space and time were…

Optogenetics replaces fMRI but not pseudoscientific nonsense

Summary: The ability to evaluate spaciotemporal influences on health compared to virus-driven pathology must include a link from quantized energy to the creation of ATP and the creation of RNA. Hunting people down who are aware of that fact is difficult because most of them have ignored the facts from this 1964 publication. Ed Boyden and Optogenetics: The Future of Neuroscience (video) (transcript) What I’m trying to do now is see whether we can help people pilot crazy projects that…

Science vs Secularism: Molecular Mechanisms or Math?

Summary: An example from ancient knowledge of trigonometry links pattern recognition as the basis for the science of creationism, and pattern recognition also is the basis for molecular biology. What form of virus-driven pathology would you most like to see eliminated from future consideration by serious scientists who know how energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation occurs? In any case, a PubMed search for microRNA and your disease of choice will be enlightening. See for example: microRNA + Alzheimer’s or microRNA…

Your indifference is killing you and others

Summary: Coherence-inducing mechanisms is double-speak for mechanisms that are nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled. Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction has been presented in double-speak as Looplessness in networks is linked to trophic coherence We are currently studying the entropy of the coherence ensemble we defined for this work. “In general, higher trophic coherence would be associated with lower entropy states, which means that if networks are more coherent than the random expectation there must indeed be some kind…

Automagical protein creation sans energy

Summary: The creation of the enzyme is linked to the evolution of all biodiversity via the creation of the enzyme and mutations. See for comparison: Neuronal-expressed microRNA-targeted pseudogenes compete with coding genes in the human brain. Listen to this song about Santa Claus and note that he sees you when you’re sleeping and somehow unconsciously determines if you’ve been good or bad. Santa Claus may know that the sense of smell has repeatedly been linked to effects on hormones and unconscious…

Sunlight, phytochemicals, microRNAs and cancer

Summary: If the creation of the uranium isotopes was not biophysically constrained in the context of hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution, the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy would be a less effective treatment for cancer than radiation therapy. The link from the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to the de novo creation of microRNAs and prevention of all pathology will become clearer each day until the cell biology game “Cytosis” is available for play by anyone ten years…

Can protein folding chemistry be understood by theorists?

Excerpt: The researchers believe their discovery dovetails with their research on how tumor viruses and cancer mutations change a cell’s DNA structure and organization to cause uncontrolled cell growth. Aye group discovers avenue for precision cancer treatment One challenge is that multiple variations, or isoforms, of the same protein can all catalyze the same cellular function, “but the nuances of biology rest in how individual isoforms are regulated,” Aye said. Natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality regulates the creation of…

Evolutionary congruence (losers) vs ecological adaptation (winners)

Nuclear and Plastid DNA Sequence-based Molecular Phylogeography of Salvadora oleoides (Salvadoraceae) in Punjab, India Reveals Allopatric Speciation in Anthropogenic Islands Due to Agricultural Expansion This is the first DNA-sequence based phylogeographic assessment of Salvadora in the world. Sequence based phylogeographic assessment of tropical tree species is a relative rarity and in India, such investigations are almost non-existent.   Kalevi Kull: Censorship & Royal Society Evo Event Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies…
