Pheromones protect us from viruses (7)

It’s been more than one year since Guenther Witzany published What is Life? 3/18/20 “A new definition of life must integrate the current empirical knowledge about interactions between cells, viruses, and RNA networks to provide a better explanatory power than the twentieth century narrative.” The need for the new definition of life is consistent with my claims from “What is life when it is not protected from virus-driven entropy.” It’s been 5 years since this virtual conference presentation on 3/30/16. The…

From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (3)

See first: From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (2) and From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (1) “Opto” means light. “Helio” links God’s Creation of UV light to RNA-mediated protection from viruses across kingdoms via hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution. Circulating microRNAs associated with liver fibrosis in chronic hepatitis C patients Chronic hepatitis C (CHC) evolves in 20% of cases to liver cirrhosis after progressive stages of fibrosis (Center for Diseases Control and Prevention – CDC, 2019). The most serious complication…

Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution (sequel)

See: Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution See also: Gate-controlled conductance switching in DNA Conclusion: Our work demonstrates one can introduce an active control to DNA conductance by modifying a base with a redox group, and switch the DNA conductance reversibly between two levels by oxidizing or reducing the redox group with an EC gate. This strategy could be implemented in more sophisticated DNA nanostructures for active device building blocks. As the DNA conductance is an indicator of the molecule in…

Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution

See: Bill Gates refutes theistic evolution (prequel) See for comparison: Our 2017 Annual Letter Warren Buffett’s Best Investment By Bill and Melinda Gates | February 14, 2017 Malnourished children can be getting enough calories, but not the right nutrients. That makes them more susceptible to conditions like pneumonia or diarrhea—and more likely to die from them. If malnourished children are not getting the right nutrients, they focused too much on vaccines and not enough on what is known about nutritional…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (2)

See: Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy Thanks to Teresa Binstock for alerting me to this example, which was reported as: Shared epigenetic changes underlie different types of autism. Teresa wrote: “You might enjoy a glance at a use of epigenetic technology. Findings begin to answer, why such syndrome-defining traits given such diverse inter-individual genetics and numerous associations with environmental factors.” She co-authored our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior. She took responsibility for the accurate…

Survivors of RNA-mediated terrorism

In Darwin’s Radio and Darwin’s Children, Greg Bear predicted there would be ecologically adapted survivors of the forthcoming viral apocalypse.  Could his “raw insight” help to save you, or help to save any of your loved ones who are not already dead? Or, is it too late for us all? See: “The Darwin Code: Intelligent Design without God” Excerpt:  Once again, evolution is a fresh territory, much larger than anyone thought. The Darwin code–the key to all of our new…

Semisynthetic organisms and synthetic biology Unintended Consequences of Expanding the Genetic Alphabet Conclusion: …phototoxicity results presented herein using a human skin cancer cell line are intended to create awareness to the scientific community of the potential unintended consequences of expanding the genetic alphabet with unnatural nucleosides like those used in this work. Reported as:  Unintended consequences of creating the world’s first semisynthetic organism Excerpt: …the artificial base pair makes living cells more susceptible to damage from low doses of sunlight and…

Natural cooperation and Evolution 2.0

More than 45,000 published journal articles indexed on PubMed already contained the term microRNA before evolutionary theorists declared the microRNAs were linked from their emergence to all biodiversity via mutations and evolution in: MicroRNA mechanisms of action: what have we learned from mice? Conclusion:  We speculate that miRNAs emerged during evolution to increase the complexity of gene regulation, thereby contributing to the diversity of organisms. See for comparison: ‘Natural cooperation’ is nutrient dependent and pheromone controlled See also: Evolution 2.0…
