Cracks in The Granite Wall (1)

Researchers in Thailand linked US military service in Thailand during the time of the war in Vietnam from the time of the Korean War to denuclearization of North Korea via energy-dependent changes in the influenza B virus.   From scientific creationists in South Korea: A Single Amino Acid at the Polymerase Acidic Protein Determines the Pathogenicity of Influenza B Viruses   They obviously know how to create a virus that would decimate human populations in North Korea and in other…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (7)

Sales of human pheromone-enhanced fragrance products have been virtually eliminated by the pseudoscientific nonsense touted by neo-Darwinian theorists and Big Bang cosmologists. I may revisit their ridiculous claims at ScentofEros.com and Pheromones.com, but prefer to continue moving forward via my other domains: RNA-mediated.com and Autophagy.pro. Summary: 2018 Update: Sympatric speciation has been linked to species diversity as an example of an ecologically validated proof-of-concept in all living genera. Theorists, other psedoscientists and nearly all so-called science journalists have failed to…

Odor activation of ATP (2)

Metabolic Regulation of Cytoplasmic DNA Synthesis (1974) The curve that results when the rate of DNA synthesis is plotted as a function of ATP concentration is sigmoidal, suggesting that more than one site on the enzyme interacts with ATP and that these sites are acting cooperatively. Odor activation of ATP is the obvious link to RNA-mediated feedback loops that control the food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction via the rate of DNA repair in species from microbes to humans.

Diet-driven RNA interference and mental health (4)

See: Diet-driven RNA interference and mental health (3) Social transmission and buffering of synaptic changes after stress Transmission from the stressed subject to the naive partner required the activation of PVN CRH neurons in both subject and partner to drive and detect the release of a putative alarm pheromone from the stressed mouse. Reported as: Researchers discover brain cells change following close contact with a stressed individual “There has been other literature that shows stress can be transferred — and…

Diet-driven RNA interference and mental health (3)

Discover’s “My Science Shop” now advertises the games that led to development of the cell biology game: “Cystosis,” which is a neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory-killer. Cytosis links the creation of anti-entropic viruidal light to all biodiversity on Earth via the physiology of reproduction and biophysically constrained viral latency. See the dumbed-down version of that fact: Missing Mutations Suggest a Reason for Sex Summary: A good model with a good model organism predicts. The mouse-to-human model of biophysically constrained viral latency predicts…

Anti-entropic sunlight: Schrödinger’s Creationist Secret? (2)

  Arabidopsis mRNA decay landscape arises from specialized RNA decay substrates, decapping-mediated feedback, and redundancy The decay of mRNA plays a vital role in modulating mRNA abundance, which, in turn, influences cellular and organismal processes. In plants and metazoans, three distinct pathways carry out the decay of most cytoplasmic mRNAs: The mRNA decapping complex, which requires the scaffold protein VARICOSE (VCS), removes a protective 5′ cap, allowing for 5′ to 3′ decay via EXORIBONUCLEASE4 (XRN4, XRN1 in metazoans and yeast),…

Kinetically Stable Thermodynamically Activated Cell Metabolism (3)

See: The vibrational theory of olfaction for the win The same kinds of amino acid substitutions that control the separations and interactions of side chains in fluorescent proteins also play an essential role in tuning the proposed mechanism for vibration detection—inelastic electron tunneling. Life literally runs on electron tunneling through the respiratory chain complexes in mitochondria.

Epigenetic facts vs variable recombination theories

6/14/13 Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model ….the model represented here is consistent with what is known about the epigenetic effects of ecologically important nutrients and pheromones on the adaptively evolved behavior of species from microbes to man. Minimally, this model can be compared to any other factual representations of epigenesis and epistasis for determination of the best scientific ‘fit’. 7/25/13 Jay R. Feierman: Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual…

From base editing to RNA editing (4)

Summary: To claim evolution, Koonin must link food energy from the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction to fixation of a beneficial mutation in the organized genome of one species that evolved into another species.

From base editing to RNA editing

Base Editing Now Able to Convert Adenine-Thymine to Guanine-Cytosine “Nature conveniently provides us with cytosine deaminase enzymes that operate on DNA,” Liu tells The Scientist. The creation of quantized energy in sunlight links energy as information from electrons to ecosystems via the physiology of reproduction in all living genera. The claim that “Nature” provides us with cytosine deaminase enzymes makes it seem that the enzymes emerged and automagically evolved to become purposeful and meaningful in the context of ridiculous theories…
