From quantum physics to quantum souls (2)

Summary: Natural selection for food energy-dependent codon optimality links the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to all biodiversity on Earth via gene splicing and energy-dependent RNA-mediated fixation of amino acid substitutions. How humans and apes are different, and why it matters (2018) …the most distinctive feature of humanity is its ability to significantly alter ecosystems. That exemplifies human idiocy. The most distinctive features of humanity are biophysically constrained by what people eat and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. See: Nothing in Biology…

Ecological adaptation: A new definition of heredity (3)

Excerpt: Moving forward: Novel and Haplotype Specific MicroRNAs Encoded by the Major Histocompatibility Complex …these data suggest that a subset of the identified novel miRNAs may contribute to the pathophysiology of numerous diseases, laying the groundwork for future studies to elucidate the functional connections of miRNAs to the numerous diseases associated with sequence variants within non-coding regions of the MHC. OMCD: OncoMir Cancer Database Dysregulation of miRNAs is commonly observed in cancers and it largely cancer dependent. The virus-driven theft…

Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (3)

See also: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (2) The Scope (Febrary 4, 2017) On World Cancer Day, we’re featuring some of the most exciting research developments of the past year. First up? Yoshinori Ohsumi, Nobel laureate, whose research could save your life. 2016 Nobel Prize Winner Yoshinori Ohsumi’s Discoveries Could Change How We Treat Disease His initial work, first started in 1992, focused on the genes behind the autophagy process in yeast cells. Autophagy, however, has implications…
