pH-dependent viral latency (6)

See first: pH-dependent viral latency (5) Researchers from Iran linked light-activated microRNA biogenesis in plants to the expression genes that effect the number, size and/or the pH of pathways that influence melanin synthesis in the context of human iris color and human skin pigmentation via the L‐tyrosine amino acid precursor. The claim on 6/5/20 by Frank M. LaFerla about the links from energy-dependent changes in microbes to humans and racism was retracted on the same day. Thank God, scientific Creationists…

pH-dependent viral latency (5)

Molecular and biochemical mechanisms of human iris color: A comprehensive review 6/2/20 MicroRNAs also affect melanocyte synthesis, which is usually affected by the downregulation of essential genes involved in pigmentation. Researchers from Iran linked light-activated microRNA biogenesis in plants to the expression genes that effect the number, size and/or the pH of pathways that influence melanin synthesis in the context of human iris color and human skin pigmentation via the L‐tyrosine amino acid precursor. The energy-dependent microRNA-mediated link from the…

pH-dependent viral latency (4)

My top tweet @microRNApro during the month of March 2018 earned 3,884 impressions. I wrote: See also my series on “Interethnic biodiversity” via this search: Interethnic genetic simiarities and a PubMed search for microRNA See also: Denying Genetics Isn’t Shutting Down Racism, It’s Fueling It 3/30/18 On the male-female divide, for example, Reich cites profound differences, “reflecting more than 100 million years of evolution and adaptation.” On race, he is both agnostic about what we will eventually find out with respect…

Richard P. Feynman refuted theistic evolution

Summary: Among other delightful examples of his expertise in physics, Feynman presciently linked natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality from food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained chromosomal rearrangements to healthy longevity. He also linked the radiation-induced theft of quantized energy to mutations in phages via amino acids that increase the virulence of the viruses. Updated information is presented in the context of refutations by many others who might otherwise claim to believe in theistic evolution. The miR-23a~27a~24-2 microRNA cluster buffers transcription…

Pseudoscientists fail to refute theistic evolution

Darwinism for the Genomic Age: Connecting Mutation to Diversification …the chief cause of our natural unwillingness to admit that one species has given birth to other and distinct species, is that we are always slow in admitting any great change of which we do not see the intermediate steps. (Darwin, 1859) Darwin put energy-dependent “conditions of life” before what is now known about natural selection for codon optimality. That is the chief cause for ignoring anything that neo-Darwinists claim about…

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…
