Did evolution autophosphorylate your kinases?

Building blocks of life’s building blocks come from starlight Excerpt 1) …ultraviolet light from stars plays a key role in creating these molecules, rather than “shock” events that create turbulence, as was previously thought. My comment: This is another very important change to their ridiculous theories. The Earth’s sun is the closest source of starlight/sunlight. The speed of light on contact with water links anti-entropic virucidal ultraviolet light from the sun to all nutrient energy-dependent biodiversity via photosynthesis and all…

Hydrogen-atom energy in DNA base pairs

See also: Consciousness is simply food rearranged Role of Double Hydrogen Atom Transfer Reactions in Atmospheric Chemistry Abstract excerpt:  Hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) reactions are ubiquitous and play a crucial role in chemistries occurring in the atmosphere, biology, and industry. My comment: The link from physics to chemistry and the conserved molecular mechanisms of biologically-based RNA-mediated cell type differentiation has been the focus my works for more than 20 years, even before I knew what I would need to explain…

Light energy-induced base pair changes (2)

See: Light energy-induced base pair changes (1) To help others move forward via the concept of energy-dependent biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding and what is known about how virus-driven energy theft is linked to all pathology, see also: Subatomic Particles, Part 1: Leptons Subatomic Particles, Part 2: Baryons, the Substance of the Cosmos Subatomic Particles, Part 3: Mesons If you are not ready to start from the de novo creation of the energy in a hydrogen atom, you may need…

Semisynthetic organisms and synthetic biology Unintended Consequences of Expanding the Genetic Alphabet Conclusion: …phototoxicity results presented herein using a human skin cancer cell line are intended to create awareness to the scientific community of the potential unintended consequences of expanding the genetic alphabet with unnatural nucleosides like those used in this work. Reported as:  Unintended consequences of creating the world’s first semisynthetic organism Excerpt: …the artificial base pair makes living cells more susceptible to damage from low doses of sunlight and…

GC-rich neo-Darwinian train wreck

Targeted Epigenetic Remodeling of Endogenous Loci by CRISPR/Cas9-Based Transcriptional Activators Directly Converts Fibroblasts to Neuronal Cells Excerpt: In this study, we demonstrate direct cellular reprogramming to induced neuronal cells through targeted activation of endogenous genes. Excerpt: Moreover, a recent study demonstrated that reprogramming efficiency can be limited by divergence to a competing cell identity (Treutlein et al., 2016). The molecular mechanisms and practical consequences of these limitations are largely unknown. My comment: They demonstrate what naturally must occur to link…

Nanotechnology and nanobots gone horribly wrong

Interview with Greg Bear Excerpt: In Blood Music (1985) you explore nanotechnology with nanobots gone horribly wrong and when reading Silicon Times e-Book Review I couldn’t help drawing parallels…. Do you sometime get deja-vu moments when something you’ve written about suddenly almost is a reality? Bear’s accurate representations of virus-driven biologically-based cause and effect predicted what is now portrayed in the context of failed energy-dependent ecological adaptation. Nanotechnology is being used for repair that typically links femotosecond blasts of virucidal…

Phage treatment of neurodegenerative diseases

Neurophage Pharma may be able to treat Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Huntingtons and other brain diseases Excerpt: Before the advent of antibiotics, in fact, doctors occasionally used phages to fight otherwise incurable bacterial infections. The Darwin Code by Greg Bear My comment: Science fiction author Greg Bear linked what is known about viruses from the portrayal of bacteriophages in “Arrowsmith” to what is known today. He portrayed the role of viruses that linked ecological variation to the epigenetically-effected ecological adaptation of a…

Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine (3)

See also: Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine Ricki Lewis Time Machine (2) DNA video in real time. Show the amazing process of DNA transcription using amino acids to turn genes into proteins. My comment: The amino acids are nutrient-dependent and linked to supercoiled DNA by energy-dependent changes in the innate immune system. The innate immune system links metabolic networks and genetic networks to supercoiled DNA. The fact that the amino acid substitutions link the innate immune system to all biodiversity in…

Energy dependent RNA-mediated immunity (6)

Alzheimer’s disease could be caused by herpes virus, warn experts Excerpt: Professor Douglas Kell of the University of Manchester’s School of Chemistry, said “We are saying there is incontrovertible evidence that Alzheimer’s Disease has a dormant microbial component. We can’t keep ignoring all of the evidence.” My comment: What evidence? Microbes and Alzheimer’s Disease is still listed as an in-press publication. Perhaps they are telling others to stop ignoring all my evidence. See for example: Energy dependent RNA-mediated immunity (2)…

Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine

Can a Quirky Chromosome Create a Second Human Species? Excerpt 1) The first departure from the common house mouse (Mus musculus) was the “tobacco mouse” (Mus poschiavinus), described in 1869 from specimens trapped in a tobacco factory in Valle di Poschiavo, Switzerland. They had big heads and small, dark bodies. Excerpt 2) I spoke to Bear back in 2004, again for The Scientist (a mechanism for the rapid extinction of a dedicated freelance writer is a change in editor-in-chief). Greg Bear is…
