energy-dependent biodiversity

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…

Sudden death indel polymorphism

An insertion/deletion polymorphism within 3’UTR of RYR2 modulates sudden unexplained death risk in Chinese populations. …different alleles of rs10692285 could alter the local structure of RYR2 mRNA and microRNA (miRNA) binding. See for comparison: Modeling Recent Human Evolution in Mice by Expression of a Selected EDAR Variant The differences between the 370A knockin mouse phenotypes and those of loss- and gain-of-function models emphasize the advantage of a more accurate mouse model. In this study an adaptive variant links the mouse…

Energy-dependent biodiversity

A general alkyl-alkyl cross-coupling enabled by redox-active esters and alkylzinc reagents Abstract excerpt: …the same activating principles used for decades to make simple C–N (amide) bonds from carboxylic acids with loss of water can be used to make C–C bonds… Conclusion: The ready availability of numerous carboxylic acids (which are easily converted to esters) contributes to the reaction’s versatility. My comment: Light energy-induced chemical reaction versatility links what is known about biophotonics to the physiology of energy-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction in…
