Natural selection for adaptation (8)

Facts about natural selection for adaptation can be compared to theories of Evolution by Gene Duplication (1970) The creation of metazoans, vertebrates and finally mammals from unicellular organisms… required the creation of new gene loci with previously nonexistent functions. The persistent theories of evolution by gene duplication can be compared to facts natural selection for adaptation in the context of God’s Creation of subatomic particles, such as protons and the ATP-dependent creation of RNA, which was required to link the…

Subatomic: From thermophiles to humans (3)

Summary: RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from insects to primates can be linked from claims about the lower percentage of food energy-dependent DNA methylation in Diet and cell size both affect queen-worker differentiation through DNA methylation in honey bees (Apis mellifera, Apidae) to the conclusion from “Cryo-electron tomography reveals that dynactin recruits a team of dyneins for processive motility.” See also: Starfish reveal the origins of brain messenger molecules (February 9, 2016) One of the neuropeptides found is similar…

RNA-mediated adult learning, memory, and neurogenesis

Here is a way to assess the power of the media-industrial complex to suppress accurate representations of biophysically constrained biologically-based cause and effect. Wait to see whether this experimental evidence is reported in the science news, or how it is reported. Enriched Environment Increases PCNA and PARP1 Levels in Octopus vulgaris Central Nervous System: First Evidence of Adult Neurogenesis in Lophotrochozoa The experimental data obtained by immunohistochemistry and western blot assay using proliferating cell nuclear antigen and poli (ADP-ribose) polymerase…

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…

Conserved biophotonic emissions

Human high intelligence is involved in spectral redshift of biophotonic activities in the brain The tendency of the spectral redshift of glutamate-induced biophotonic emissions in this study is in the order of frog, mouse, chicken, pig, monkey, and human, which is almost consistent with the phylogenetic tree. Although the present imaging technique could not distinguish and determine what types of neurons emit what types of spectral biophotons or whether a neuron or type of neurons emit different spectral biophotons, we…

Genes, orchid odors, and pheromones from blonds

1) The Genetics of Blond Hair (2014) and 2) Orchids give off human ‘body odor’ to attract mosquitoes (2016) Both articles link RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all invertebrates and all vertebrates to every aspect of cell type differentiation in plants. …studies of genetic variation in thousands of people have linked at least eight DNA regions to blondness based on the fact that a certain DNA letter, or base, was found in people with that hair color but not in…

Neo-Darwinian sink testing

sink testing Lab medicine The illegal practice of providing false test results on clinical specimens–eg, vials of blood, urine specimens, that were deliberately discarded–ie, down the sink, without actually testing them Pylori Story #1: Acid Attack Pylori Story #2: Journey to the Center of the Stomach My comment: The “Modern Synthesis” is analogous to sink testing in the medical laboratory. It was invented in the early 1900’s based on de Vries definition of jump-like energy changes, which he called “mutations.”…

Mechanisms of stress: from genes to cancer

Biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in all living genera. Genomic stability arises in the context of a fine-tuned balance of viral microRNAs and nutrient-dependent microRNAs.  RNA-mediated gene duplication and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions stabilize organized genomes. Nutrient-dependent microRNAs are linked by RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions from ecological variation to protection from DNA damage caused by viral microRNAs. The microRNA/messenger RNA balance links ecological variation to…

Extensive molecular evidence vs ridiculous theories

Mosquito Genomes Galore Whole-genome sequences of 16 different mosquito species reveal rapid evolution and could inform malaria research. By Ruth Williams | November 27, 2014 Excerpt: “…mosquitoes are rapidly evolving, exhibiting high degrees of gene gains, losses, shuffling, and even transmission between closely related species.” It is the reports on rapid evolution of insects that continues to limit the usefulness of any theories about mutations and or natural selection of anything except food. My comments (below) to The Scientist site…

Sackler Colloquium: Effects or AFFECTS on Behavior

Arthur M. Sackler Colloquium of the National Academy of Sciences, “Epigenetic Changes in the Developing Brain: Effects on Behavior,” held March 28–29, 2014, at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. The complete program and video recordings of most presentations are available on the NAS website. I reiterate: the title is: Epigenetic changes in the developing brain: Effects on behavior I was taught that the epigenetic landscape must be linked to physical landscape of DNA in organized genomes of…
