The eternal significance of microRNAs and the Vietnam Memorial (2)

Summary: Quantized energy as information has been linked from what organisms eat to biophysically constrained membrane protein construction in the context of viral latency and healthy longevity. Cryoelectron microscopy (aka electron cryomicroscopy for obfuscation) clearly links what is known about the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA to all pathology or from energy-dependent RNA-mediated DNA repair to species survival. Membrane Proteins – Richard Henderson May 31, 2018 Energy as information and biophysically constrained membrane protein construction – James Kohl Feb 15,…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (6)

I failed to correctly predict who would win this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry, but there is still hope for my prediction of who will win the Nobel Peace Prize. I thought Lynn Zechiedrich would win for linking cryo-EM to the Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA Our cryo-ET, biochemical, and computational studies show the astounding versatility and dynamism of DNA depending on the degree of supercoiling. DNA simultaneously exists in a largely inactive B-form with bases tucked in and protected…
