ecological adaptations

Pattern recognition vs evolutionary processes (revisited)

Summary: Recent findings suggest that polyphenols display the ability to reverse adverse epigenetic regulation involved in pathological conditions, such as obesity, metabolic disorder, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, and various forms of cancer. That suggests the ignorance of pseudoscientists who fail to link pattern recognition from the food that organisms eat to the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction via microRNAs is the cause of all pathology.

New Testament Book Cover Refutes Theistic Evolution

Video of Biology of the Book Goats, bookworms, a monk’s kiss: Biologists reveal the hidden history of ancient gospels Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils. See: Protein power by Robert F. Service …methods to sequence amino acids lag behind DNA sequencing. The report of 300 million year old proteins is based on ridiculous theories that failed to include what was known about…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (5)

Summary: Emmy Noethe’s theorems were developed in the early 1900’s. Richard Feynman inadvertently or purposefully alluded to them as examples of human idiocy. Discover Magazine resurrected the examples of human idiocy in a 2017 article. For comparison, Choi et al., (2017) support the claims that intercellular and interkingdom communication is energy-dependent and controlled by the metabolism of food energy to pheromones. It is obvious that pheromones biophysically constrain the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. That fact links everything currently known…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (2)

Summary: The mind does not exist in nature. It is a manifestation of how ecological variation must be linked to the creation of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations. Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (1) The energy-dependent de novo creation of all receptors is biophysically constrained. See: Channel opening and gating mechanism in AMPA-subtype glutamate receptors This was reported as: Scientists capture first image of major brain receptor in action Defects in glutamate receptors, or the processes they mediate, are implicated…

Richard P. Feynman refuted theistic evolution

Summary: Among other delightful examples of his expertise in physics, Feynman presciently linked natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality from food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained chromosomal rearrangements to healthy longevity. He also linked the radiation-induced theft of quantized energy to mutations in phages via amino acids that increase the virulence of the viruses. Updated information is presented in the context of refutations by many others who might otherwise claim to believe in theistic evolution. The miR-23a~27a~24-2 microRNA cluster buffers transcription…

Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation

Mechanism of transmembrane signaling by sensor histidine kinases, was reported as Scientists investigate how the sense of smell works in bacteria …the signaling and inactive states differ only very slightly at the nitrate-binding site – by 0.5-1 angstroms, which is approximately one fifth of the size of the ion itself (1 angstrom is 10-10 meters). However, when this ion binds to the sensor, it causes huge changes in the protein: The helices of different monomers begin to move in different…

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability

Negative selection in humans and fruit flies involves synergistic epistasis Negative selection against deleterious alleles produced by mutation influences within-population variation as the most pervasive form of natural selection. Naturally occurring positive selection for energy-dependent codon optimality replaced every aspect of neo-Darwinian theories that linked natural selection from mutations to evolution of increasing organismal complexity. Positive selection for epigenetically-effected beneficial alleles links the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA via nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled metabolic networks and genetic networks.…

The death of human ethology via ecology

Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model Open access publication on June 14, 2013 Mutation-driven evolution also published on June 14, 2013 Variable habitat conditions drive species covariation in the human microbiota http://journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/article?id=10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005435 Open access publication on April 27, 2017 Conclusion: …we found that genetically related species respond to fluctuating habitat conditions in the same way, implying that they occupy similar ecological niches. Thus, current taxonomic groupings of bacteria are largely sufficient for explaining cross-sectional correlations in relative species abundances over the…

Epigenetically-effected nucleosome repositioning sheds Dobzhansky’s light on evolution

Crystal structure of the overlapping dinucleosome composed of hexasome and octasome My summary: Nucleosomes are dynamic entities that are repositioned by energy-dependent links from sunlight to ATP and RNA biosynthesis that act on DNA during the chromatin remodeling, which is biophysically constrained by the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction during the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all morphological and behavioral phentoypes. processes. Reported as: Unveiling how nucleosome repositioning occurs to shed light on genetic diseases …an incomplete formation of overlapping dinucleosome may…

Cytosis: Biology Content

  Help Me Write Some Biology Content Project Update #5: Cytosis: A Cell Biology Board Game by John Coveyou (Genius Games) Many of you have mentioned that you’d like to have an explanation of the biology behind Cytosis available… and I think that is an AWESOME plan. Every time I’ve taught the game to non-science players in the past, they say gameplay made even more sense (and was so much more enjoyable) when I explained the science as well. This…
