Transposable Elements

Pheromones protect us from viruses (1)

Involvement of transposable elements in neurogenesis 3/24/20 appeared in my search for indexed articles that mention microRNA on 3/4/21. There are more than 116,500 others. See: microRNA  MicroRNAs, many of which arise from transposon transcripts, also play an important role in regulating the differentiation of neuronal stem cells. That fact was established in the mid-1990s and Pheromones protect us from viruses (1)

Light-activated PTEN-dependent viral latency (2)

See first: Light-activated PTEN-dependent viral latency (1) 12/25/19 On 12/26/19, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory responded to my accurate representations of light-activated energy-dependent biophysically constrained viral latency with a report on Biophysical models of cis-regulation as interpretable neural networks 11/8/19 See: Finally, machine learning interprets gene regulation clearly 12/26/19 “…understanding how something like gene regulation works—is Light-activated PTEN-dependent viral latency (2)

Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems (2)

From the time I published my review of biophysically constrained nutritional epigenetics, which refuted the neo-Darwinian nonsense about mutation-driven evolution, 2834 more publications have mentioned mutations and evolution. For comparison, there are ~12,370 more publications on microRNAs. The additional publications on microRNAs attest to the facts about ecological adaptations in all living genera. For example: Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems (2)

2018 March for Science vs microRNAs

Summary: Only biologically uninformed theorists and other pseudoscientists do not seem to know that all carbon-based life is quantized energy-dependent and that biophotonic energy as information comes from the sun. It is obvious to all serious scientists that proton gradients link photons from quantized energy as information to the proton motive force, which is how 2018 March for Science vs microRNAs

Preventing genomic entropy

Tethering Transposons Excerpt: Transposons—thought to be related to viruses—can copy themselves and insert randomly around the genome. A paper published today (October 15) in Science provides a greater understanding of how cells shut down these rogue jumping genes. My comment: Shouldn’t someone else be claiming that nutrient-dependent microRNAs prevent the accumulation of viral microRNAs that leads Preventing genomic entropy
