Light-controlled cell biology (revisited)

See Sci-Bay Scholar for citations and downloads of more than 3300 published works that link viruses to microRNAs Summary: …either the organized genomes of all cell types use the energy source, or viruses use the biophysically constrained energy of the cell types. No extant species can be used as an example of how the virus-driven theft of quantized energy can be linked from natural selection to the evolution of a new species. See also, with my emphasis: Light Offers New…

Diet-driven RNA interference and cancer prevention (3)

Excerpt: They claim to have found novel autoregulatory feedback loops that link changes in microRNAs to the alternative splicing factors SRSF1 and SRSF2.  Ectopic expression of SRSF1 can automagically repress the level of multiple microRNAs and SRSF2 can automagically upregulate miRNA expression. The fact that a peer-reviewed work published in 2018 links autoregulatory feedback loops to automagically altered gene expression and apoptosis via alternative splicings of pre-mRNAs suggests it is time for all serious scientists to retire. The magic of pseudoscientists has…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (3)

See: Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (2) Let’s make peer review scientific …peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific. Here’s another failed attempt to put top-down causation back into the context of peer review. Electron transfer between anatase TiO2 and an O2 molecule directly observed by atomic force microscopy…

George Church refutes theistic evolution (2)

See: George Church refutes theistic evolution George Church may not know that he refuted every aspect of theistic evolution in his presentation on February 8, 2017. Hopefully, someone will tell him how he linked quantum physics from chemistry to biophysically constrained protein folding and all biodiversity, or explain to others how he did that. Here is my explanation of his admissions. I placed the explanation into the context of this poster session submission. Title: Energy as information and constrained endogenous…

Theories vs facts about polycombic adaptation

See: Demoncrats fight polycombic ecological adaptation Exosomes as miRNA Carriers: Formation–Function–Future Important aspects will be highlighted as a take-home message (THM) at the end of each paragraph. THM: Extracellular vesicles transport miRNA in a paracrine and endocrine manner. Questions regarding the cellular options of producing either microvesicles or exosomes and their difference in miRNA composition and number are still unknown. In my 2014 invited review, the four F’s, Formation–Function–Future and Copulation were included in details about how the nutrient energy-dependent…

Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution (5)

Two-Photon Microscopy’s Historic Influence on Neuroscience Excerpt: Yuste says he’s proud of what he and Denk accomplished. “But now I go to meetings where everyone is presenting two-photon calcium imaging, and no one knows, or remembers, or cites our work,” he says, laughing. My comment: What else can be done but laugh? Most researchers still have not linked the anti-entropic energy of virucidal ultraviolet light from the biophysically constrained RNA-mediated chemistry of protein folding to all biodiversity in all genera…

From Precis to Proof in 6000 years

Religious texts, such as The Holy Bible appear to be like a Precis of works from God. He seems to be explaining energy-dependent creation in the context of what is currently known to serious scientists about biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry, healthy longevity and RNA-mediated biodiversity. God made it perfectly clear, in advance, that all miraculous biodiversity is energy-dependent. Energy as information is the theme that extends to the weekend resurrection of the bacterial flagellum in P. fluorscens. Biologically…

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…

How did the innate immune system evolve?

Sexually Antagonistic Male Signals Manipulate Germline and Soma of C. elegans Hermaphrodites Abstract excerpt: Why would a system exist that reduces the vigor of potential mates prior to mating? Addressing this question could provide insights into mechanisms and evolution of sexual conflict and reveal sensory inputs that regulate aging. Highlights excerpt: An unknown signal accelerates larval development, specifically the onset of puberty Reported as: Male chemistry primes females for reproduction—but at a cost “There is a fine balance between reproduction and…
