Pheromones biophysically constrain base editing and RNA editing

Summary: …they [Koonin’s group] substitute what they consider to be a plausible hypothesis. It places their observations into the context of a universal trend that is conserved in all life after the trend emerged, which was sometime before the last universal common ancestor of all extant organisms emerged and began to evolve.

Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution (7)

RNA interference (RNAi) fails to protect all cell types from virus-driven energy theft. The effect on some cell types cannot be controlled. That’s because nutrient energy-dependent endogenosymbiosis and the pheromones-controlled physiology of reproduction protect the organized genomes of species from microbes to humans. Billions of waster dollars have been spent with no end to the waste in sight — until the Trump administration stops it. As that begins to happen, see: tRNA-mediated codon-biased translation in mycobacterial hypoxic persistence (open access)…

Glycine and GnRH: Am I being pedantic?

Posted to the FB page on 12/3/14 at Skeptics; Atheists; Realists; Agnostics; Humanists Stephen Hawking and Brian Cox take part in Monty Python sketch – video Excerpt: “I think you are being pedantic.” My comment: Some people may think I am being pedantic. My focus is not on physics; it is on the role of GnRH in cell type differentiation. My focus now extends from what is known about quantum physics, quantum smell, chirality, quantum biology, and quantum consciousness. What is known about chirality…
