Orchestrated death: Francis S. Collins (2)

See first: Orchestrated death: Francis S. Collins Conclusion: He had the responsibility to not fund the gain-of-function research that led to the loss of our freedoms in the USA. Instead, he failed to mention anything about microRNAs and the fact that miR-155 regulates both adaptive and innate immune responses. Moving forward: Exogenous miRNAs induce post-transcriptional gene silencing in plants 10/14/21 was reported on 10/21/21 as Plants Use RNA to Talk to Neighbors A study finds that plants sharing the same…

MicroRNA-mediated population control (9)

See first: MicroRNA-mediated population control (8) 8/6/21 Light-activated microRNA biogenesis and peptide synthesis at the origin of life link biophysical constraints on the 2nd Law of thermodynamics  to microRNA-mediated biophysically constrained viral latency in all model organisms. Added support for the facts were published on 8/11/21. See: Decreased inhibition of exosomal miRNAs on SARS-CoV-2 replication underlies poor outcomes in elderly people and diabetic patients The facts were reported as: Study finds four circulating miRNAs which could effectively inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication…

The origin of information (5,4,3,2,1)

Summary: These findings reveal a new GLU biosynthetic pathway, which could contribute to some of the sunlight-induced neurobehavioral changes. The claims about new biosynthetic pathways should be placed into the context of what is known about the energy-dependent origin of all pathways. Researchers may have solved origin-of-life conundrum …the conditions that produce nucleic acid precursors also create the starting materials needed to make natural amino acids and lipids. That suggests a single set of [light activated] reactions could have given…

Ecological adaptations vs the randomness of evolution (3)

Summary: Fifty years later, only theorists and other pseudoscientists have failed to recognize the facts that link experimental evidence of differences in the energy of photons to the proton motive force, which links the potential of hydrogen (pH) to biophysically constrained viral latency and all biodiversity on Earth. In that context, Carl Zimmer serves as an important example of human idiocy each time he makes claims about evolution. Serious scientists will meet during Schrödinger at 75 – The Future of…

MicroRNA-mediated denuclearization (4)

Summary: Christ’s lab showed that in vivo formation of I-motif structures is pH dependent and helped to put the “fear of God” into atheistic communists. I-motif DNA structures are formed in the nuclei of human cells (4/23/18) Reported as: In human cells, scientists find DNA that looks like a twisted knot instead of a double helix (4/23/18) Also reported as: New Twisted ‘Knot’ Human DNA Structure Discovered—and It Looks Nothing Like the Double Helix (4/23/18) Christ’s lab showed that in vivo…

Part 2: Light-controlled cell biology (revisited)

Greg Bear took the lead with this approach in his novel Quantico (2006). A genetically engineered virus was used to erase the memory of a specifically targeted human population to reduce inter-ethnic conflict. [Greg Bear] …served as a consultant for NASA, the U.S. Army, the State Department, the International Food Protection Association, and Homeland Security on matters ranging from privatizing space to food safety, the frontiers of microbiology and genetics, and biological security. Greg Bear is a likely candidate for…

Viruses in pathogenic variants disrupt alternative splicings (2)

Autophagy is activated by virus-driven energy theft. Click on the term “Autophagy” That fact is clear in the diagram of systems complexity and in my model. See for contrast:  Co-option of an endogenous retrovirus envelope for host defense in hominid ancestors A key question in virology, that is potentially answerable using paleovirological analyses, is what caused the elimination of extinct viral lineages? Conclusion: The selection pressures acting on hsaHTenv, its orthologs and progenitors might have been complex. Loss of fusogenicity…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (4)

Solar-driven reforming of lignocellulose to H2 with a CdS/CdOx photocatalyst Reported as: Scientists harness solar power to produce clean hydrogen from biomass They claim that the rigid structure of nature’s equivalent to armored concrete evolved to protect plants and trees from degradation. They don’t make claims about what might cause the degradation. They start with the likelihood that degradation automagically occurs. That led them to design a combination of catalyst and solution that mimics how the anti-entropic energy of sunlight…
