microRNA / messenger RNA balance

Can protein folding chemistry be understood by theorists?

Excerpt: The researchers believe their discovery dovetails with their research on how tumor viruses and cancer mutations change a cell’s DNA structure and organization to cause uncontrolled cell growth. Aye group discovers avenue for precision cancer treatment One challenge is that multiple variations, or isoforms, of the same protein can all catalyze the same cellular function, “but the nuances of biology rest in how individual isoforms are regulated,” Aye said. Natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality regulates the creation of…

Pattern recognition vs evolutionary processes (revisited)

Summary: Recent findings suggest that polyphenols display the ability to reverse adverse epigenetic regulation involved in pathological conditions, such as obesity, metabolic disorder, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, and various forms of cancer. That suggests the ignorance of pseudoscientists who fail to link pattern recognition from the food that organisms eat to the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction via microRNAs is the cause of all pathology. From egg to the air: 21 days of bee development condensed into one mesmerising minute After…

New Testament Book Cover Refutes Theistic Evolution

Video of Biology of the Book Goats, bookworms, a monk’s kiss: Biologists reveal the hidden history of ancient gospels Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils. See: Protein power by Robert F. Service …methods to sequence amino acids lag behind DNA sequencing. The report of 300 million year old proteins is based on ridiculous theories that failed to include what was known about…

Mutations: the “driving force” behind human brain complexity?

Evolutionary Psychology Crap in New Scientist There is a reason why domestic violence is so widespread, says David Buss, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Texas in Austin: it carries a selective advantage, tied with reproductive success. Larry Moran wrote: There’s something seriously wrong with evolutionary psychology. And there’s something seriously wrong with respectable science magazines who promote this crap. Are the science magazines that promote this crap respectable? I lost respect for anyone who still uses de Vries…

Chromatin: The structure of DNA (3)

See:  Chromatin: The structure of DNA (2) Inherited parental methylation shifts over time, may have functional effects in the brain and other tissues Excerpt: …researchers have theorized that inherited methylation, also referred to as parental imprinting, largely remains stable throughout development, except during two important developmental milestones: after fertilization and during the creation of sperm and egg cells. Altered gene imprinting at other times has been associated with developmental disorders and cancer. My comment: Theorists have historically failed to learn…

How did the innate immune system evolve?

Sexually Antagonistic Male Signals Manipulate Germline and Soma of C. elegans Hermaphrodites Abstract excerpt: Why would a system exist that reduces the vigor of potential mates prior to mating? Addressing this question could provide insights into mechanisms and evolution of sexual conflict and reveal sensory inputs that regulate aging. Highlights excerpt: An unknown signal accelerates larval development, specifically the onset of puberty Reported as: Male chemistry primes females for reproduction—but at a cost “There is a fine balance between reproduction and…

Conserved biophotonic emissions

Human high intelligence is involved in spectral redshift of biophotonic activities in the brain The tendency of the spectral redshift of glutamate-induced biophotonic emissions in this study is in the order of frog, mouse, chicken, pig, monkey, and human, which is almost consistent with the phylogenetic tree. Although the present imaging technique could not distinguish and determine what types of neurons emit what types of spectral biophotons or whether a neuron or type of neurons emit different spectral biophotons, we…

Food supplement or licensed immunostimulant?

Glucan from Food Supplement to a Licensed Drug   Excerpt: “…β-glucan possesses a significant immunostimulating activity in a wide variety of species, including earthworms, shrimp, fish, chicken, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, pigs, cattle, and, last but not least, humans. Based on these results, it has been concluded that β-glucan represents a type of immunostimulanting molecule that is actively spanning full evolutionary spectrum. Some experiments also show that β-glucan can help even in the protection of plants. β-Glucan is therefore…

Energy-dependent RNA methylation (3)

I wrote: Stop trying to claim anything about energy-dependent cause and effect on any other site including your own. You betrayed my trust in you. I do not take that lightly. On 6/4/16, Tomi Aalto replied: “You don’t own the knowledge.” My comment: Researchers own nothing without patents based on the knowledge. They do not own the knowledge that leads others to learn more about what has been accurately portrayed in the context of biophysically constrained biologically-based cause and effect.…
