Optogenetics replaces fMRI but not pseudoscientific nonsense

Summary: The ability to evaluate spaciotemporal influences on health compared to virus-driven pathology must include a link from quantized energy to the creation of ATP and the creation of RNA. Hunting people down who are aware of that fact is difficult because most of them have ignored the facts from this 1964 publication. Ed Boyden and Optogenetics: The Future of Neuroscience (video) (transcript) What I’m trying to do now is see whether we can help people pilot crazy projects that…

Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation

Mechanism of transmembrane signaling by sensor histidine kinases, was reported as Scientists investigate how the sense of smell works in bacteria …the signaling and inactive states differ only very slightly at the nitrate-binding site – by 0.5-1 angstroms, which is approximately one fifth of the size of the ion itself (1 angstrom is 10-10 meters). However, when this ion binds to the sensor, it causes huge changes in the protein: The helices of different monomers begin to move in different…

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (3)

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (2) Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (2) See for comparison this treatise on climate change packaged as information on the evolution of a flying snake. Fossil ‘winged serpent’ is a new species of ancient snake At the time that Zilantophis dwelled there, the site was a sinkhole surrounded by forest, attracting a variety of animals. The local fauna included ancient representatives of familiar North American creatures such as bears, beavers and salamanders. Others…

Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution (sequel)

See: Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution See also: Gate-controlled conductance switching in DNA Conclusion: Our work demonstrates one can introduce an active control to DNA conductance by modifying a base with a redox group, and switch the DNA conductance reversibly between two levels by oxidizing or reducing the redox group with an EC gate. This strategy could be implemented in more sophisticated DNA nanostructures for active device building blocks. As the DNA conductance is an indicator of the molecule in…

Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution

See: Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution (prequel) See for comparison: Our 2017 Annual Letter Warren Buffett’s Best Investment By Bill and Melinda Gates | February 14, 2017 Malnourished children can be getting enough calories, but not the right nutrients. That makes them more susceptible to conditions like pneumonia or diarrhea—and more likely to die from them. If malnourished children are not getting the right nutrients, they focused too much on vaccines and not enough on what is known about nutritional…

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…

Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (3)

See also: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (2) The Scope (Febrary 4, 2017) On World Cancer Day, we’re featuring some of the most exciting research developments of the past year. First up? Yoshinori Ohsumi, Nobel laureate, whose research could save your life. 2016 Nobel Prize Winner Yoshinori Ohsumi’s Discoveries Could Change How We Treat Disease His initial work, first started in 1992, focused on the genes behind the autophagy process in yeast cells. Autophagy, however, has implications…

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine (3)

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine Dobzhansky 1973 and Precision Medicine (2) How Do Bacteria Help Cancer Studying bacterial effects on cancer are very complex, because there is no one clear mechanism Jon LIeff has again obfuscated the clarity of facts about energy-dependent conserved molecular mechanisms. These are the facts: 1) Closed feedback loops link nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled quorum sensing in bacteria to supercoiled DNA in all living genera. 2) Virus-driven energy theft causes the degradation of messenger RNA in bacteria…
