Differential Expression of Putative Pheromone-detecting Cells and Receptors in the Olfactory Epithelium of an African Cichlid Fish The link from sunlight and chirality to nutrient energy-dependent reproduction is not addressed in the presentationss from SICB 2017 There is nothing in a search for chirality At the 2016 meeting, Epigenetic regulation of Toll-like Receptor 4 expression as a facilitator…

Theorists sell hidden energy (2)

Theorists sell hidden energy (Jan 5, 2017) January 6, 2017 Giant atoms could help unveil ‘dark matter’ and other cosmic secrets The universe is an astonishingly secretive place. Mysterious substances known as dark matter and dark energy account for some 95% of it. Despite huge effort to find out what they are, we simply don’t know. Our model is based on the fact that weakly interacting particles must bounce from the nucleus of the atom it collides with and exchange…

Vietnam Veterans and others with glioblastoma

The Agent Orange Widows Club After their husbands died of an aggressive brain cancer, the widows of Vietnam veterans have found one another as they fight the VA for benefits. See also: Vietnam Veterans with Glioblastoma Multiforme Stage 4 Brain Cancer This post was removed: Targeting NF-κB in glioblastoma: A therapeutic approach This is the level of complexity that the VA needs to understand and link to the treatment of this aggressive cancer, which is obviously caused by virus-driven energy theft.…

Energy-dependent sensory maps (1996-2016)

Developmental broadening of inhibitory sensory maps My summary: They help to detail how olfactory input causes the energy-dependent de novo creation of sensory maps, which are representations of the external world. The experience-dependent representations link chemotaxis and phototaxis to biophysically constrained behavior. The representations are systematically organized in brain structures throughout development. Simply put, the maps are links from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA in organized genomes. By investigating how ongoing neurogenesis in the mouse…

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…

Theories vs facts about polycombic adaptation

See: Demoncrats fight polycombic ecological adaptation Exosomes as miRNA Carriers: Formation–Function–Future Important aspects will be highlighted as a take-home message (THM) at the end of each paragraph. THM: Extracellular vesicles transport miRNA in a paracrine and endocrine manner. Questions regarding the cellular options of producing either microvesicles or exosomes and their difference in miRNA composition and number are still unknown. In my 2014 invited review, the four F’s, Formation–Function–Future and Copulation were included in details about how the nutrient energy-dependent…

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…

Politicized science: The demise of RNA-mediated.com?

A post-Presidential election change indicates that politicized science in the USA may be the cause of the steady decline in the number of pages read on this domain. The decline is paired with an increased bounce rate each time I post anything that pits the science of creation against the pseudoscientific nonsense of neo-Darwinian theories. If this domain were used in the context of a social science experiment, the statistics would show that ridiculous theories have left the USA relatively…

Combating evolution: Battlefield medicine vs politicized science

A steady decline in the number of pages read on this domain is paired with an increased bounce rate each time I post anything that pits the science of creation against the pseudoscientific nonsense of neo-Darwinian theories. If this domain were used in the context of a social science experiment, the statistics would show how theories have left the USA relatively defenseless against the threat of gene-editing technology, which has has been advanced in countries where students are not taught…

The futility of The Battlefield FB group

Apparently, Paul Hartley blocked me from further discussion of his OP about dinosaurs and gladiators before I could ask if he thought “The Battlefield” is a “false flag” group. Does anyone else think that?   If so, do you think it can survive publication of experimental evidence that links responsive supramolecular systems to stepwise changes in the assembly of metal complexes via induction of a light-driven rotary motor scaffold akin to the bacterial flagellum of P. fluorescens? See: Dynamic control…
