Cardiac energy metabolism requires units of energy

Acetylation contributes to hypertrophy-caused maturational delay of cardiac energy metabolism (First published May 17, 2018 ) Silencing the mRNA of general control of amino acid synthesis 5-like protein 1 reduced acetylation of LCAD and βHAD as well as fatty acid oxidation rates in cardiomyocytes. Thus, hypertrophy in CHDs prevents the postnatal increase in myocardial acetylation, resulting in a delayed maturation of cardiac fatty acid oxidation. The virus-driven theft of quantized energy causes the silencing of mRNA, which generally controls amino…

Enzyme-constrained interethnic biodiversity (6)

I think that I may be able to finish this series before the end of the month and use my tweets to expose more than 100,000  people to what is known about how the energy-dependent creation of microRNAs prevents all pathology. See for one example of more than 68,000 published works: MicroRNA-22 suppresses cell proliferation, migration and invasion in oral squamous cell carcinoma by targeting NLRP3 For an extensive review of biologically-based biophysically constrained viral latency, see: Enzyme-constrained interethnic biodiversity…

Francis S. Collins refutes theistic evolution

Criticisms of the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled evolutionary model Based on his writings, both published and unpublished, James Kohl presents an unsupported challenge to modern evolutionary theory and misrepresentations of established scientific terms and others’ research. — Andrew Jones, BA Editor’s note The 2013 review article by James Vaughn Kohl published in Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology and criticized in the above Letter to the Editor was subjected to standard peer review and the revised version was accepted by me after it had…

Base pairs, olfaction and RNA thermometers

RNA thermometer controls temperature-dependent virulence factor expression in Vibrio cholerae (2014) Excerpt: The stem-loop can be stabilized by strengthening the base pairing between the fourU element and SD sequence through the substitution of G-C base pairs, and this results in an elevated melting temperature (10). Conclusion: RNA thermometers represent a simple yet elegant mechanism for controlling temperature-dependent gene expression and may be more widespread among pathogenic bacteria that interact with mammalian hosts than is currently known.

Antithetical conclusions (6)

Biochemical and Structural Insights into Doublecortin-like Kinase Domain 1 (Subscription required) Abstract excerpt: This structure also allowed for the mapping of cancer-causing mutations within the kinase domain, suggesting that a loss of kinase function may contribute to tumorigenesis. Continued See: Antithetical conclusions (5, 4, 3, 2) In the same issue of this journal, see: A Second RNA-Binding Site in the NS1 Protein of Influenza B Virus (Subscription required) Abstract excerpt: We demonstrate that single-site alanine replacements of basic residues in…
