Viruses in pathogenic variants disrupt alternative splicings (2)

Autophagy is activated by virus-driven energy theft. Click on the term “Autophagy” That fact is clear in the diagram of systems complexity and in my model. See for contrast:  Co-option of an endogenous retrovirus envelope for host defense in hominid ancestors A key question in virology, that is potentially answerable using paleovirological analyses, is what caused the elimination of extinct viral lineages? Conclusion: The selection pressures acting on hsaHTenv, its orthologs and progenitors might have been complex. Loss of fusogenicity…

The futility of The Battlefield FB group

Apparently, Paul Hartley blocked me from further discussion of his OP about dinosaurs and gladiators before I could ask if he thought “The Battlefield” is a “false flag” group. Does anyone else think that?   If so, do you think it can survive publication of experimental evidence that links responsive supramolecular systems to stepwise changes in the assembly of metal complexes via induction of a light-driven rotary motor scaffold akin to the bacterial flagellum of P. fluorescens? See: Dynamic control…
