An alternative mode of bacterial quorum sensing?

Out of the Books Aug 22, 2017 Schoolchildren in Turkey will no longer be learning about evolution, NPR reports. Israeli Middle Schools School to Include Theory of Evolution Submitted by jvkohl_2055414 2014 http://www.educationnews.org/international-uk/israeli-middle-schools-school-to-include-theory-of-evolution/ …learning about evolution is not the primary function of the decision, but rather to use it as a building block for students to learn more about their ecology. Israeli Middle Schools will teach the ridiculous theory so that students can learn the difference between theories and models of…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (10)

Summary: The entire evolution of the microbial world and the virus world, and the interaction between microbes and viruses and other life forms have been left out of the Modern Synthesis…— Eugene Koonin My comment: Viruses are not life forms. They steal the quantized energy that links sunlight to viral latency in the context of everything known to all serious scientists about the fact that Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction See for comparison: Olfaction Warps Visual…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (8)

Summary: The role of vitamin C in the treatment of pain: new insights links what is known about the “superfood” Spirulina (blue-green algae), which is grown in marine and freshwater environments, to the stability of all organized genomes via its biological activities, such as antioxidant, anti-diabetic, cholesterol-controlling and insulin resistance effects. The biological activities are energy-dependent and they link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to all biodiversity via the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction and microRNAs in plants and animals.…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (5)

Summary: Emmy Noethe’s theorems were developed in the early 1900’s. Richard Feynman inadvertently or purposefully alluded to them as examples of human idiocy. Discover Magazine resurrected the examples of human idiocy in a 2017 article. For comparison, Choi et al., (2017) support the claims that intercellular and interkingdom communication is energy-dependent and controlled by the metabolism of food energy to pheromones. It is obvious that pheromones biophysically constrain the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. That fact links everything currently known…

Food Energy-Dependent Cell Type Differentiation

A Crack in Creation: Gene Editing and the Unthinkable Power to Control Evolution Not since the atomic bomb has a technology so alarmed its inventors that they warned the world about its use. Not since the time of his work on the Manhattan Project has a serious scientist like the late Richard Feynman presciently advised biologists on how to “get” theoretical physicists. Ask them who decided to use different terms for food energy and other source of the same quantized…

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (5)

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (4) CRISPR Is Taking Over Science, Breaks Out Of Labs And Invades Schools (5/29/17) …used mathematical models to reveal that even in a uniform environment, metabolic competition generally leads to the steady coexistence of distinct microbes, collectively called a “consortium”. In a consortium, distinct microbes organize themselves to create a community-level metabolism that best exploits the nutrients present. The models showed that while growing, a consortium depletes the available pool…

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (2)

Dedicated to Dr. Tom Jordan and Priscilla Jordan on the day of their retirement from the Baptist ministry, May 28, 2017. They always encouraged me to learn more about the “Laws of Biology” and link the Laws from energy as information to all biodiversity on Earth via the physiology of reproduction.

Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation (2)

Due to the overwhelming support for my model of top-down causation and all energy-dependent biophysically constrained biodiversity on Earth, I will replace Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation (2) with the more appropriately titled God’s shrinking role in your salvation See: Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation and God’s shrinking role in your salvation (in prep) before proceeding to the rest of this series on epigenetic adaptation.

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…
