MicroRNA-mediated alternative splicing (revisited)

Building one molecule from a reservoir of two atoms reported as: Cold chemistry with two atoms. They linked differences in the energy of photons from two different wavelengths of light, 700 nm and 976 nm, to the creation of the molecule NaCs*. They were able to detect molecule formation in the context of atom loss and NaCs* vibrational levels near the dissociation threshold. Detecting resonances that have not been previously observed appears to be the link from quantum physics to…

Corporate owned microRNA-mediated biodiversity

Corporate control and global governance of marine genetic resources Who owns ocean biodiversity? All biodiversity is quantized energy-dependent and RNA-mediated in the context of the physiology of reproduction and pheromone-controlled RNA interference (RNAi) . Naturally occurring light-activated RNAi ensures viral latency, which helps to ensure healthy longevity. George Church et al, own this patent on RNA interference, which suggests that he and others own all biodiversity in the context of the Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor and patent…

Diet-driven RNA interference and mental health (3)

Discover’s “My Science Shop” now advertises the games that led to development of the cell biology game: “Cystosis,” which is a neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory-killer. Cytosis links the creation of anti-entropic viruidal light to all biodiversity on Earth via the physiology of reproduction and biophysically constrained viral latency. See the dumbed-down version of that fact: Missing Mutations Suggest a Reason for Sex Summary: A good model with a good model organism predicts. The mouse-to-human model of biophysically constrained viral latency predicts…

God’s shrinking role in salvation (2)

Conclusion: There is no such thing as a blind dance of atoms. Quantized energy-dependent changes link angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera via the physiology of reproduction. Serious scientists do not link “high-level cause and purposes” to anything that does not link what organisms eat from food energy to the physiology of reproduction. Only pseudoscientists claim that ideas about “emergence” are “…a remarkable synthesis across fields and levels.” See: God’s shrinking role in salvation These 6 Common Vegetables Are…

Did “Nature” kill Steve Jobs? (3)

So Many Research Scientists, So Few Openings as Professors Excerpt: Even someone as brilliant as Emmanuelle Charpentier, who in 2015 became head of the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology after a momentous discovery in gene editing, spent the previous 25 years moving through nine institutions in five countries. My comment: Why did she move around so much when in the same year, on 07/02/2015, George Church and colleagues filed a patent application for “RNA-Guided Human Genome Engineering.” Excerpt: Repetitive…

Variants near CHRNA3/5 and APOE have age- and sex-related effects on human lifespan Excerpt: The signal we observe is driven by rs429358, a non-synonymous Cys112Arg variant, which defines the ε4 allele and which has not previously been shown to be the causal variant influencing lifespan.

Excerpt: VARIANTS OF UNCERTAIN SIGNIFICANCE With phrases such as “settled science” and “scientific proof” part of the lexicon, it’s little wonder that health care consumers expect…

A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (4)

See also: A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (3) The importance of DNA repair to heritability cannot be understated. Theorists who think in terms of mutations and evolution are biologically uninformed and may never have learned anything about DNA repair. Serious scientists are overloaded with information and are not likely to try to explain facts about biologically based cause and effect to theorists. November, 2015 An individual-based diploid model predicts limited conditions under which stochastic gene expression becomes advantageous My…

RNA-mediated everything

Odorant receptor gene choice and axonal wiring in mice with deletion mutations in the odorant receptor gene SR1 Abstract: In the mouse, a mature olfactory sensory neuron (OSN) of the main olfactory epithelium (MOE) expresses one allele of one of the 1200 odorant receptor (OR) genes in the genome. The mechanisms that underlie the one receptor–one neuron rule remain poorly understood. A popular experimental paradigm for OR gene choice is to delete an OR coding region by gene targeting or…
