Is meat protein unhealthy? (2)

See also: Microbiome-Grade DNA Extraction Kits …the thermal and chemical methods effectively lyse the gram-negative organisms and boost their population in the final profile, amplifying the bias. This suggests that all links from food energy-dependent de novo creation of the pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained bull sperm microRNAome have been misinterpreted in the context of virus-driven fescue toxicosis. The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression …the miRNA profile of mature ejaculated sperm may in fact…

Is meat protein unhealthy? (1)

Patterns of plant and animal protein intake are strongly associated with cardiovascular mortality Reported as: Meat protein is unhealthy, but protein from nuts and seeds is heart smart In the context of everything known about how the creation of anti-entropic virucidal light must be linked to all biodiversity on Earth, watch this ridiculous misrepresentation of the honeybee model organism. Food energy-dependent microRNA-mediated pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained viral latency is portrayed as if visual input was most important. Bee swarms work like…

Pseudoscientists hate what science explains! (3)

See also: Pseudoscientists hate what science explains (2) Summary: In addition to germline silencing via information transfer to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA, multicopy transgene arrays are linked from changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance to variation in their somatic expression level. That fact helps to establish the difference between healthy longevity and pathology across generations. Problems with DNA replication can cause epigenetic changes that may be inherited for several generations My summary: The polycomb repressive complex 2, additional…

Wikipedia refutes theistic evolution

RNA-Directed DNA Methylation Besides RNA molecules, a plethora of proteins are involved in the establishment of RdDM, like Argonautes, DNA methyltransferases, chromatin remodelling complexes and the plant-specific Polymerase IV and Polymerase V. All these act in concert to add a methyl-group at the 5′ position of cytosines. In contrast to animals, cytosines at all sequence context (CG, CHG, CHH) may get de novo methylated in plants. There is no such thing as de novo methylation. Methylation is energy-dependent. Virus-driven energy…

Energy-dependent chirality

See also: Achiral glycine Summary: Virus-driven energy theft alters the interactions between physics and chemistry that maintain biophysically constrained biodiversity. That’s how viruses are linked from mutations to all pathology. Nutrient energy-dependent changes in the context of the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction biophysically constrain biodiversity via the fixation of amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA, which protects organized genomes from virus-driven pathology. Chirality (chemistry) Two enantiomers of a generic amino acid that is chiral The chirality of amino acids is energy-dependent…

Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution (2)

Plants send light to roots to ‘see’ underground My comment: Sending light requires an energy-dependent link from hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution to supercoiled DNA, which protects all organanized genomes from virus-driven energy theft and genomic entropy. See Schrodinger (1944) Excerpt: Indeed, in the case of higher animals we know the kind of orderliness they feed upon well enough, viz. the extremely well-ordered state of matter in more or less complicated organic compounds, which serve them as…

From Precis to Proof in 6000 years (3)

See first: Coulombic interactions facilitate polycombic adaptation See also: From Precis to Proof in 6000 years (2) See also: RNA catalyses nuclear pre-mRNA splicing 06 November 2013 Conclusion: …our data indicate that the spliceosome, like the ribosome44,45, uses RNA to effect catalysis in the context of a complex ribonucleoprotein assembly. Moreover, the common catalytic mechanism used by the spliceosome and group II introns is consistent with a common evolutionary origin between the spliceosome and these ancient RNA retroelements46,47. Our findings…

Light ‘drives’ adaptation; nothing ‘drives’ evolution (2)

See: Light ‘drives’ adaptation; nothing ‘drives’ evolution See also: Who rules the waves? – Viruses might just be bit players in the drama of the seas. Then again, they could be major actors Excerpt (from 1996):  Most consider viruses to be a legion of cripples, sterilised by ultraviolet radiation and rendered impotent by hosts that are largely immune to their threat. But a few researchers take the opposite view. And if they turn out to be right, viruses could radically…

Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory (2)

Evolutionary Constraints in the β-Globin Cluster: The Signature of Purifying Selection at the δ-Globin (HBD) Locus and Its Role in Developmental Gene Regulation Conclusion: … the results here presented indicate that purifying selection is driving not only HBD evolution but also its neighbor pseudogene, HBBP1. In the light of recent advances in the characterization of the β-globin cluster, we propose that the complex patterns of diversity observed in this genomic region arose from distinct functional constraints related with the intricate…

80 years of causal analysis (1936 – 2016)

Roles of Mutation and Selection in Speciation: From Hugo de Vries [1902 definition of mutation] to the Modern Genomic Era Excerpt: …mutation is crucial in speciation because reproductive barriers cannot be generated without mutations. My comment: Chromosomal rearrangements link autophagy from energy-dependent changes in RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and supercoiled DNA to all biodiversity via speciation. Some Principles of Causal Analysis in Genetics (1936) Extract: …high frequency radiation and particles of high velocity are very important components of the environment,…
