Mechanisms of Recombination

Virus-driven genome engineering causes cancer?

CRISPR–Cas9 genome editing induces a p53-mediated DNA damage response Inhibition of p53 prevents the damage response and increases the rate of homologous recombination… In the 1990’s, Abcam researchers discovered the cell death gene. Now see: Mechanisms of Recombination conference See also: P53 toxicity is a hurdle to CRISPR/CAS9 screening and engineering in human pluripotent stem cells We demonstrated the toxic response is tp53-dependent and the toxic effect of tp53 severely reduces the efficiency of precise genome-engineering in hPSCs. Reported as:…

MicroRNA-mediated denuclearization

Kim Says North Korea Is Stopping Nuclear and Missile Tests Early today, he said the country was stopping nuclear and missile tests and shuttering its atomic test site, which has “done its job.” Those concessions were long demanded by the U.S., lifting hopes that next Friday’s planned summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will be conducted in good faith. Added Perspective Emergence of Human G2P[4] Rotaviruses in the Post-vaccination Era in South Korea: Footprints of Multiple Interspecies…

Light-activated error free DNA repair (2)

Summary: In the diagram and diatribes that accompany claims about de novo changes in electrons and the production of nucleotides, the amount of pseudoscientific nonsense becomes perfectly clear. Pseudoscientists start with energy-dependent changes but call the changes de novo changes in electrons. That allows the pseudoscientists to dismiss any facts about how the creation of energy must be linked to the creation of enzymes. The creation of enzymes does not automagically occur and the creation of all biodiversity must occur…
