Amino acid homeostasis for a Happy New Year! 12/31/14 Works by Christ et al., continue to attest to the rejuvenating power of blood. For example, in the context of epigenetic pharmacology and regenerative medicine, one protein in the blood has been linked to health via nutrient-dependent amino acid substitutions that differentiate all cell types in … Naturally attenuated viral endemicity (7)
Science Is Not Fake News 11/29/18 10:30 am Starts With A Bang/Ethan Siegel Whenever you realize that something’s wrong with your body — when you find that you’re sick or injured — you turn into a detective. Many of us run through a list of possible causes, based both on our personal experience and on … Hide and seek with science facts (1)
Summary: Students in the United States can learn how pseudoscientists bastardized Darwin’s theory by playing the game “Cytosis.” It links the creation of virucidal light to the creation of ATP and the creation of RNA, which biophysically constrains all energy-dependent biodiversity in the context of the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and activation of the cell … Who created your virus-driven death gene? (3)
Summary: The light harvesting occurs in the ocean and on land. It links the creation of sunlight from food energy to the physiology of pheromone-controlled viral latency in all living genera, and all serious scientists know that. Origins of photosynthesis in plants dated to 1.25 billion years ago The world’s oldest algae fossils are … Darwinian adaptation: a clear evolutionary trail?
Single methyl groups can act as toggle switches to specify transmembrane protein-protein interactions These results highlight the high intrinsic specificity of TMD interactions, demonstrate that a single methyl group can dictate specificity, and define the minimal chemical difference that can modulate the specificity of TMD interactions and the activity of transmembrane proteins. RNA-directed DNA methylation … Methylation and the innate immune system (2)
Summary: All energy-dependent differences in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance have now been linked from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to all morphological and behavioral phenotypes by the conserved molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated cell type differentiation. FDA Approves Treatment That Modifies Patient’s Own Genes To Fight Cancer It costs $475,000 and the treatment could kill you. … The billion dollar baby (revisited)
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 … Can protein folding chemistry be understood by theorists?
Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (3) Summary: Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of the change as a gradual accumulation of knowledge while their work has always been at the cutting edge. — Kalevi Kull Microbiota Manipulations …modified an … Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (4)
