energy as information

Tasting light links energy from creation to adaptation

The C. elegans Taste Receptor Homolog LITE-1 Is a Photoreceptor “In Brief: A taste receptor homolog absorbs UV light and mediates avoidance behavior in C. elegans in response to light exposure.” Excerpt: Light sensation is critical for all phyla of life, ranging from bacteria to humans (Wang and Montell, 2007; Yau and Hardie, 2009). Organisms have evolved various types of photoreceptor proteins… Photoreceptors are G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). No experimental evidence of biologically-based cause and effect links the evolution of any…

Metabolic Phenotyping Research

Global Consortium to Conduct Metabolic Phenotyping Research Consortium members in six countries will use chromatography, mass spectrometry, and other technologies to conduct metabolic phenotyping research that examines the dynamic interactions between genes, environments, microbiomes, diets, and lifestyles, and their collective impact on disease. My Predictions. 1. They will link energy as information to healthy longevity. 2. They will report their findings as if they discovered new molecular mechanisms. 3. The mechanisms will link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of ultraviolet light…

Light, behavior and autophagy, a gender-specific risk factor

Structure of photosystem II and substrate binding at room temperature Excerpt: PS II, a membrane-bound multi-subunit pigment protein complex, couples the one-electron photochemistry at the reaction centre with the four-electron redox chemistry of water oxidation at the Mn4CaO5 cluster in the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC). New, detailed snapshots capture photosynthesis at room temperature The living machinery responsible for photosynthesis – while commonplace and essential to life on Earth – is still not fully understood. It is understood at every level of…

Epigenetically effected energy-dependent fluorescence (2)

We are just trying to understand your hypothesis. Peter Berean has wasted more of my time that nearly anyone else I have encountered, and he still claims my model is a hypothesis. On October 14, 2016 I asked: How can you or anyone else tell the difference between a secular humanist and an old earth creationist? For example, I can compare both sects to young earth creationists who have linked everything known about nutritional epigenetics to healthy longevity and everything…

From Precis to Proof in 6000 years

Religious texts, such as The Holy Bible appear to be like a Precis of works from God. He seems to be explaining energy-dependent creation in the context of what is currently known to serious scientists about biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry, healthy longevity and RNA-mediated biodiversity. God made it perfectly clear, in advance, that all miraculous biodiversity is energy-dependent. Energy as information is the theme that extends to the weekend resurrection of the bacterial flagellum in P. fluorscens. Biologically…

Did evolution autophosphorylate your kinases? (2)

Hecatombic evolution Deep-Sea Viruses Destroy Archaea Excerpt: Given the enormous scale of deep-sea ecosystems, the results indicate that archaea-virus relationships could be a major contributor to global biogeochemical cycles. My comment:  I know that Anna Di Cosmo​ and John Hewitt​ are able to link virus-driven energy theft to all pathology in all living genera via the conserved molecular mechanisms they have already placed into their proper perspective on natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality, which links the innate immune system…

The tipping point? 50,000 publications (5)

For review see my blog posts “The tipping point? 50,000 publications” with follow-ups: (2) (3) & (4). There are now more than 52,000 published works that link microRNAs to cell type differentiation in the context of healthy longevity or virus-driven energy theft, which has been linked from viral latency to all pathology. At the rate of ~1000 more publications per month that link energy-dependent changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance to healthy longevity or link virus-driven energy theft to all…

Energy-dependent RNA methylation (8)

Multiplexing Genetic and Nucleosome Positioning Codes: A Computational Approach Mutation Monte Carlo method (MMC): Excerpt: The mutation moves change the bp sequence but keep the DNA configuration fixed. Both moves change the energy, Eq (1), of the two bp steps involved. My comment: Moves that change energy cost energy. Attributing energy-dependent changes in base pairs to mutations without linking them to the source of the energy change is a neo-Darwinian trick. Nucleosome-amino acid correlation analysis: Excerpt: This produces occurrence probabilities…
