Energy-dependent RNA methylation (7)

“…viral latency is responsible for life-long pathogenesis and mortality risk…” – Lieberman (2016) My comment: Energy-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions are responsible for life-long healthy longevity and decreased mortality risk. See for comparison: How cancer was created by evolution Excerpt 1) But even though it is evolutionary processes that have made cancer such a problem, Energy-dependent RNA methylation (7)

Single-cell level assay of protein biosynthesis and degradation

High-throughput detection of miRNAs and gene-specific mRNA at the single-cell level by flow cytometry Excerpt: “We use this technique to show modulation of a microRNA critical for T-cell function, miR-155. We adapt this assay for simultaneous detection of mRNA and proteins by ImageStream technology.” Reported as: Technology breakthrough reveals cellular transcription process My comment: Their Single-cell level assay of protein biosynthesis and degradation

One test of bioenergetic health?

Success of new-generation metabolo-therapies in personalized medicine depends on measuring bioenergetic health Excerpt: “In one test, a comprehensive measure of energetic health, or its disease-related deterioration, can now be made. The prognostic and diagnostic value of bioenergetic measurements in patients is still unknown, but recent findings support an emerging concept that circulating leukocytes and platelets One test of bioenergetic health?

From deep time into real time: What evolutionary processes?

Rapid evolution of a native species following invasion by a congener Abstract excerpt: “…the lizard Anolis carolinensis moved to higher perches following invasion by Anolis sagrei and, in response, adaptively evolved larger toepads after only 20 generations.” My comment: This indicates that the behavior evolved before the species, in response, evolved larger toepads.
