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…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (4)

Conclusion: Conserved energy biophysically constrains viral latency. Metatranscriptomics High-throughput sequencing and analysis of microbial community cDNA are providing valuable insight into in situ microbial activity and metabolism in the oceans. When faced with the eternal significance of quantized energy-dependent natural selection for codon optimality, theorists must attack the basics of what is known to serious scientists about biophysically constrained life on Earth. See for example: Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor By starting with “raw assemblies” instead of the…

Complexity: Routes and Patterns (4)

Amino acid coevolution reveals three-dimensional structure and functional domains of insect odorant receptors (2015) …the current models are both consistent with available and new experimental data and offer a number of predictions – notably, through revelation of highly constrained residues (Supplementary Data 9–10) – to guide and visualise structure-function analyses of these unusual sensory receptors. No experimental evidence of top-down causation links anything except the quantized energy-dependent creation of enzymes, hormones, and receptors to biophysically constrained viral latency and ecological…

Odor activation of ATP (1)

Serious scientists start from the levels of biological organization required to link atoms to ecosystems in all living genera. They must link what is known about quantized energy to subatomic particles. See for example slide number 6 from: Human Pheromones: Linking Neuroendocrinology and Ethology (revisited)  (2010) Subatomic particles must be the link to the creation of ATP synthase, which must link the creation of ATP to the creation of RNA. See McEwen et al., (1964) Dependence of RNA synthesis in…

Subatomic: From thermophiles to humans

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. — Max Planck Every great scientific truth goes through three stages. First, people say it conflicts with the Bible. Next they say it has been discovered before. Lastly they say they always believed it. — Louis Agassiz  (1807-1873) The claims of neo-Darwininan theorists and big…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (10)

Linda Buck, Ben Feringa, Michael Gazzaniga, Christof Koch, Nick Lane and Svante Paabo are among the presenters who will almost undoubtedly discuss some or all of my claims. Prepare to ask questions or intelligently discuss accurate representations of top-down causation by watching this: The energy-dependent creation of the microRNAome protects the organized genomes of all living genera from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that links mutations to all pathology. See: The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue…

MicroRNAs GnRH and the failure of sex research

Summary: “The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression” accurately represents what is known about food energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from soil microbes to humans. MicroRNAs are not new players in the hypothalamic control of fertility and the effects of food odors and pheromones on microRNAs link energy-dependent changes in hormones to behavior. That fact was detailed two decades ago in our Hormones and Behavior review. Now see: [MicroRNAs: new players…

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…

Antithetical conclusions (7)

Streamlining the E.coli Genetic Code Once the E. coli genome is pared down to 57 codons, the seven blank codons can be reintegrated and used to introduce nonstandard amino acids, the researchers have proposed; this would open the door to creating a wider range of proteins for industrial applications. A recoded genome also imparts resistance to viral infection and can be used for biocontainment: the DNA incorporated from wild-type E. coli or viruses can’t be used to build proteins successfully…

Model vs theory: Progress report!

On June 14, 2013, 1) Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model and 2) Mutation-Driven Evolution were published with divergent/opposite conclusions. 1) …the largest contributor to the development of our personal preferences may be the unconscious epigenetic effects of food odors and pheromones on hormones that organize and activate behavior. If so, the model represented here is consistent with what is known about the epigenetic effects of ecologically important nutrients and pheromones on the adaptively evolved behavior of species from microbes to…
