DNA methylation on N6-adenine in mammalian embryonic stem cells Excerpt: DNA methylation is a crucial component of epigenetic regulation that controls many important aspects of mammalian biology, such as imprinting, X chromosome inactivation and tumorigenesis1, 2. My comment: Nutrient-dependent RNA-directed DNA methylation links RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions to protein folding chemistry during thermodynamic cycles of … Virus-driven sex differences?
Introduction: Energy-dependent changes in hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution have again been linked to hormone-organized and hormone-activated behaviors by the conserved molecular mechanisms we detailed in the molecular epigenetics section of our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review. The practical application of those details has been reported in the context of this article, … Effects on invertebrate GnRH and affects on primate behavior
Bird Genomes Abound Scientists complete the largest-ever comparative genomic study of birds. By Ruth Williams | December 11, 2014 Excerpt: “The results of this effort provide not only the most precise genetic history of birds to date, but also reveal why avian genomes tend to be small compared to those of other vertebrates: because they … Behavior (4): All responses are RNA-mediated in birds
Drunks and Monkeys Understanding our primate ancestors’ relationship with alcohol can inform its use by modern humans. By Robert Dudley | June 1, 2014 Excerpt: “…if the right kinds of bacteria are also present, fermentation will stabilize certain foodstuffs (think cheese, yogurt, sauerkraut, and kimchi, for example).” My comment: Epigenetic changes induced by ethanol in astrocytes link histone acetylation, … Drunks and Monkeys: Pseudoscientific nonsense
This study indicates that copulins affect males both in physiology and behavioral response.
evolutionary theorists cannot, without question, make the assumption that we are primarily visual creatures. The basis for that assumption was a non-existent avian model
Scent of Eros products make a man smell like he has a higher adult circulating testosterone level.
Peer-reviewed journal articles detail the effects of natural odor from women on hormone levels in men, which are linked to behavior. Pheromone-enhanced fragrance products enhance the natural odor of women and can enhance attraction.
The chemosignals in the emotional tears of women are human pheromones, probably derived from progesterone.
Pheromones effect hormones, like testosterone. Pheromones affect behavior by causing changes in hormones. The effect of pheromones on hormones and their affect on behavior begins at birth.
