The eternal significance of microRNAs and the Vietnam Memorial (1)

Researchers who believe in the mutation-driven evolution of species and mutation-driven differences in human populations have invented another ridiculous hypothesis. Now, they believe in mathematical models that infer: Cultural hitchhiking and competition between patrilineal kin groups explain the post-Neolithic Y-chromosome bottleneck In human populations, changes in genetic variation are driven not only by genetic processes, but can also arise from cultural or social changes. An abrupt population bottleneck specific to human males has been inferred across several Old World (Africa,…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (8)

Use of definitions in attempts to explain any aspect of species-specific biophysically constrained cell type differentiation and aging has been replaced by the use of model systems of biological processes.  Biological processes can be compared to so-called “evolutionary processes” to show that only biological processes need to be considered in the context of Darwin’s “conditions of life” or answers to the the question  What is Life? Schrödinger (1944). K. L. Mettinger et al. (eds.), Exosomes, Stem Cells and MicroRNA, Advances…

Do not refute cherished theories

Synopsis: All serious scientist know that pre-mRNAs (now known as microRNAs in more than 70,000 published works) do not create themselves. For comparison, Ricki Lewis fails to mention how fertility is biophysically constrained by by the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy, the creation of enzymes (e.g, ATP synthase), the creation of ATP, the creation of microRNAs, and the RNA-mediated creation of hormones and receptors that link achiral glycine in position 6 of the GnRH decapeptide to all experience-dependent…

Natural selection for racism and all pathology

Why is natural selection hard to grasp? It is not what you think…. …human cognitive tendencies interfere more with deep understanding of how natural selection works. Simply put, our intelligence and teleological reasoning interferes with the teaching of pseudoscientific nonsense. The nonsense does not place Darwin’s “conditions of life” before natural selection for reproductive fitness. Natural selection is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled in the context of biophysically constrained viral latency. See for comparison: The vibrational theory of olfaction for the…

Methylation and the Innate Immune System

Free Webinar Training: Methylation and the Innate Immune System Free Training: Methylation and the Innate Immune System Please send your questions, comments and feedback to: support@qahomestudy.com I sent these two questions in advance: 1) Does what organisms eat link food energy to RNA-directed DNA methylation and all healthy longevity via fixation of amino acid substitutions and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance in the context of the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans? 2) Does the virus-driven theft of…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (3)

See first: Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (2) Emily Balskus Pins Down the Chemistry and Metabolism of Human Microbiomes Summary: The chemistry and metabolism of all microbiomes is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled via the physiology of reproduction. See: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction My comment to The Scientist: …trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (Hyp) dehydratase, a newly discovered member of an abundant family of proteins, produced by gut bacteria, known as the glycyl radical enzymes, helps in metabolizing trans-Hyp, an…

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine

MicroRNA-34 directly targets pair-rule genes and cytoskeleton component in the honey bee Our findings point to miR-34-5p as novel regulatory component in the complex molecular cascade that governs insect segmentation and to a broader role of miRNAs in the early development due to the detection of mature transcripts from both 5p and 3p arms for several precursor miRNAs. Thus, this work encourages further investigation to pinpoint miRNAs as fine tuners of insect early development. Anna Di Cosmo‘s group took the…

Did evolution autophosphorylate your kinases? (2)

Hecatombic evolution Deep-Sea Viruses Destroy Archaea Excerpt: Given the enormous scale of deep-sea ecosystems, the results indicate that archaea-virus relationships could be a major contributor to global biogeochemical cycles. My comment:  I know that Anna Di Cosmo​ and John Hewitt​ are able to link virus-driven energy theft to all pathology in all living genera via the conserved molecular mechanisms they have already placed into their proper perspective on natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality, which links the innate immune system…

Virus-driven energy theft: honeybee model

The Buzz about Honey Bee Viruses August 18, 2016 Similar to other co-evolving host—pathogen relationships, honey bee viruses have likely evolved mechanisms to overcome and/or evade bee immune responses. For example, several honey bee infecting Dicistroviruses (i.e., IAPV, KBV, and ABPV) encode a DvExNPGP motif at the 5′ terminus of their genomes, suggesting these honey bee-infecting viruses encode putative viral suppressors of RNAi similar to the Dicistroviruses Cricket paralysis virus and Drosophila C virus [52]. In addition, viruses may manipulate…
