Diet-driven RNA interference and cancer prevention (2)

See first: Diet-driven RNA interference and cancer prevention A RNA-Sequencing approach for the identification of novel long non-coding RNA biomarkers in colorectal cancer Our data highlight the capability of RNA-seq to discover novel lncRNAs involved in human carcinogenesis, which may serve as alternative biomarkers and/or molecular treatment targets. Like all other data, their data refutes Diet-driven RNA interference and cancer prevention (2)

Behavior: The first response is RNA-mediated not genetically-determined

Diana Maria Petrosanu asked a question in an Evolutionary Psychology News discussion about Evolution’s Random Paths Lead to One Place. I’ve been very vocal in other discussions that tout ridiculous theories that have been repeatedly refuted by biological facts. My answer to her question might help others to understand the language of RNA-mediated events. That’s Behavior: The first response is RNA-mediated not genetically-determined

Human Pheromones and sex differences in brain maturation

The effect of GnRH on secretion on luteinizing hormone/follicle stimulating hormone ratios and steroidogenesis, links social odors to brain maturation across species of mammals, as well as vertebrates. Experience-dependent brain-directed behaviors should be as variable as would be expected by the association between food odors and food preferences.

The Sex Lives of Insects: Part III

The “rules” of the required molecular biology involve ligand-receptor binding. For example, from yeasts to mammals, genetic conservation of the ligand: gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), and the diversification of its receptor (GnRHR) are part of the rules.
