The eternal significance of microRNAs (5)

Excerpt: Researchers in South Korea, for example, have reminded the God-less Communist dictator of North Korea that one microRNA-mediated amino acid substitution in the influenza B virus could decimate the human populations that he thinks he rules. Conclusion: Conserved energy biophysically constrains viral latency. Ridiculously ignorant objections to my publication in what others claim is a predatory journal can be compared to my objection to publication of this article in PNAS. Environmental selection during the last ice age on the…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (7)

See first: Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (6) Stems Cells in the Hypothalamus Slow Aging in Mice My comment to The Scientist Cai says microRNAs could be a potential mechanism by which hypothalamic neural stem cells have such wide-ranging effects on aging, yet he believes that neurogenesis may also be involved. See also: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction At least 10,000 neurons in 26 different brain areas appear to transmit signals directly to GnRH neurons.  GnRH…

Virus-driven downsizing of the human brain (4)

Virus-driven downsizing of the human brain (7/1/16) Virus-driven downsizing of the human brain (2) (7/6/16) Virus-driven downsizing of the human brain (3) (8/9/16) Excerpt: A Postdoctoral Researcher threatened me with litigation if I did not remove the tags with his name that linked his works to works at the institution where he works. In an attempt to discuss Breakthrough in understanding how stem cells become specialized More than two years ago, he wrote: We house our animal mouse models in…

Energy-dependent biodiversity (2)

This will be my next post to the “Creationism” FB group, where biologically uninformed antagonists have been attacking me on all my other posts or my comments on the posts of others. See, for example: In a series of four presentations during three online conferences: “Neuroscience” “Molecular Diagnostics” “Genetics and Genomics,” I linked Einstein’s math and physics, from Schrodinger’s claims about anti-entropic energy to Dobzhansky’s claims about amino acid substitutions and cell type differentiation in many different species… Currently, more…
