Neanderthals

Pheromones protect us from viruses (1)

Involvement of transposable elements in neurogenesis 3/24/20 appeared in my search for indexed articles that mention microRNA on 3/4/21. There are more than 116,500 others. See: microRNA  MicroRNAs, many of which arise from transposon transcripts, also play an important role in regulating the differentiation of neuronal stem cells. That fact was established in the mid-1990s and was linked From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) via pre-mRNA-mediated stem cell differentiation across kingdoms in our section on molecular epigenetics. At that time…

Impeach God or impeach Joe? (1)

God’s Creation of energy as information has been linked to biophysically constrained viral latency by all intelligent serious scientists and most intelligent people. Neo-Darwinian theorists, Democrats, liberals, conspiracy theorists, Communists, and other atheists are exceptions. Are they intelligent people? See: Conductance selectivity of Na+ across the K+ channel via Na+ trapped in a tortuous trajectory, which was reported on 3/1/21 as New study challenges ‘established’ mechanism about selectivity of cellular ion channels For a historical perspective on what’s new, see:…

Impeaching the God of Abraham (5)

More than 116,000 indexed published works link sunlight from microRNA biogenesis to biophysically constrained viral latency across kingdoms via the energy-dependent assembly of the microRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex. But see: Experts say there’s no medical basis for Trump’s suggestion that sunlight, disinfectants may treat coronavirus 4/24/21 Jonathan Reiner, professor of medicine at The George Washington University Hospital, said there’s no medical basis for Trump’s statements about sunlight. See for comparison: Specific enzymatic amplification of DNA in vitro: the polymerase chain reaction (1986)…

Hydrogen-atom energy in DNA base pairs

See also: Consciousness is simply food rearranged Role of Double Hydrogen Atom Transfer Reactions in Atmospheric Chemistry Abstract excerpt:  Hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) reactions are ubiquitous and play a crucial role in chemistries occurring in the atmosphere, biology, and industry. My comment: The link from physics to chemistry and the conserved molecular mechanisms of biologically-based RNA-mediated cell type differentiation has been the focus my works for more than 20 years, even before I knew what I would need to explain…

96 fixed amino acid substitutions, not 96 genes

19 December, 2013 – 09:31 april holloway Entire Neanderthal genome finally mapped – with amazing results Excerpt (with my emphasis): “Only 96 genes responsible for making proteins in cells are different between modern humans and Neanderthals. Intriguingly, some of the gene differences involve ones involved in both immune responses and the development of brain cells in people.” “Somewhere within these 96 genes may lay the answer to why Neanderthals and Denisovans became extinct.” Journal article: The complete genome sequence of a Neanderthal from the Altai Mountains Excerpt (with…
