Odor activation of ATP (2)

Metabolic Regulation of Cytoplasmic DNA Synthesis (1974) The curve that results when the rate of DNA synthesis is plotted as a function of ATP concentration is sigmoidal, suggesting that more than one site on the enzyme interacts with ATP and that these sites are acting cooperatively. Odor activation of ATP is the obvious link to RNA-mediated feedback loops that control the food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction via the rate of DNA repair in species from microbes to humans.

From base editing to RNA editing

Base Editing Now Able to Convert Adenine-Thymine to Guanine-Cytosine “Nature conveniently provides us with cytosine deaminase enzymes that operate on DNA,” Liu tells The Scientist. The creation of quantized energy in sunlight links energy as information from electrons to ecosystems via the physiology of reproduction in all living genera. The claim that “Nature” provides us with cytosine deaminase enzymes makes it seem that the enzymes emerged and automagically evolved to become purposeful and meaningful in the context of ridiculous theories…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (2)

Summary: Endogenous RNA interference is the energy-dependent epigenetic link from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency. The stress-linked virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA has been linked to all pathology. Three Americans win Nobel medicine prize for body rhythm work [But they failed to link Americanism to Creationism] I predicted that Wen Zhou would win for linking the energy-dependent creation of G protein-coupled receptors to all biodiversity via olfaction and the space-time continuum in the context of…

Evolutionary theories of epigenetic drift (2)

Summary: For another refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense, see: Conformational landscape of isolated capped amino acids: on the nature of non-covalent interactions reported as:  Folding biomolecule model shows how form dictates function Mapping Human Genetic Ancestry (2007) …the sorting of such ancestral phenotypic polymorphisms in subsequent speciation events provides a parsimonious explanation why evolutionary derived characteristics are shared among species that are not each other’s closest relatives. The claims about evolutionary derived characteristics require acceptance of the belief that one…

Pseudoscientists fail to refute theistic evolution

Darwinism for the Genomic Age: Connecting Mutation to Diversification …the chief cause of our natural unwillingness to admit that one species has given birth to other and distinct species, is that we are always slow in admitting any great change of which we do not see the intermediate steps. (Darwin, 1859) Darwin put energy-dependent “conditions of life” before what is now known about natural selection for codon optimality. That is the chief cause for ignoring anything that neo-Darwinists claim about…

Francis S. Collins refutes theistic evolution

Criticisms of the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled evolutionary model Based on his writings, both published and unpublished, James Kohl presents an unsupported challenge to modern evolutionary theory and misrepresentations of established scientific terms and others’ research. — Andrew Jones, BA Editor’s note The 2013 review article by James Vaughn Kohl published in Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology and criticized in the above Letter to the Editor was subjected to standard peer review and the revised version was accepted by me after it had…

Bio-functional information

Peter Berean‘s attack on my model of energy as information led him to invent or re-introduce the term “Bio-Functional Information.” The comment from Greg Thurston (below) can be placed into the context of Schrodinger’s claims from “What is Life?” For instance, Schrodinger challenged de Vries definition of the term mutation with this entry: “Indeed, in the case of higher animals we know the kind of orderliness they feed upon well enough, viz. the extremely well-ordered state of matter in more…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (6)

See: Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (5) Simply put all aspects of biophysically constrained energy-dependent cell type differentiation must first be linked from the physiology of reproduction to ecological adaptations, or they must be linked from energy theft to the evolution of pathology. See for contrast and comparsion: Finding your diagnosis in the brave new world of genetics-based medicine by John Hewitt Excerpts: Typically all they have is a stack of diffuse paper reports and xeroxed publications from the primary…

Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory (2)

Evolutionary Constraints in the β-Globin Cluster: The Signature of Purifying Selection at the δ-Globin (HBD) Locus and Its Role in Developmental Gene Regulation Conclusion: … the results here presented indicate that purifying selection is driving not only HBD evolution but also its neighbor pseudogene, HBBP1. In the light of recent advances in the characterization of the β-globin cluster, we propose that the complex patterns of diversity observed in this genomic region arose from distinct functional constraints related with the intricate…

The human virome (revisited)

From October 2013: Describing the Silent Human Virome with an Emphasis on Giant Viruses “…viruses infect all domains of life, including bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes, and are found in all ecological niches [2]. This pleiotropic distribution on our planet allows viruses to play the role of ‘natural motors’ that drive global energy and nutrient cycling [3,4].” My comment: The portrayal of viruses as ‘natural motors’ is made outside the context of the fact that the energy-dependent changes attributed to the…
