Quantum Darwinism (10)

Evolution after whole genome duplication: teleost microRNAs 4/19/21 …provides the first genome-wide, multi-species analysis of the mechanisms influencing metazoan miRNA evolution after whole genome duplication. Shows that energy must be linked from biophysically constrained viral latency to ecological adaptations. For other refutations of neo-Darwinian pseudoscietific nonsense follow the scientific progress via a search for microRNA as the number of indexed publications continues to rise at a rate of 1000+ each month. For a recent obfuscation of facts in a curated…

Evolution outside the context of “the light of evolution”

Summary: The claim that two mutations led to the weekend resurrection of the bacterial flagellum cannot be supported with the claim that only one amino acid substitution differentiates the cell type of two different primate species (gorillas and humans) from two similar species (chimpanzees and humans). The fact that mutations are not amino acid substitutions can be supported in the context of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled cell type differentiation in species from microbes to humans. Nothing in Biology Makes Any Sense…

Methylation and the innate immune system (2)

Single methyl groups can act as toggle switches to specify transmembrane protein-protein interactions These results highlight the high intrinsic specificity of TMD interactions, demonstrate that a single methyl group can dictate specificity, and define the minimal chemical difference that can modulate the specificity of TMD interactions and the activity of transmembrane proteins. RNA-directed DNA methylation is energy-dependent. The “minimal chemical difference” is linked from the quantized energy of virucidal light to all biophysically constrained biodiversity via base pair changes, single…

Molecular Diagnostics: What is unprotected life? (2)

See also: Molecular Diagnostics: What is unprotected life? What is life when it is not protected from virus driven entropy Published on 30 Mar 2016. Presentated at Molecular Diagnostics on April 6 and 7, 2016 The poster also is available at Figshare POSTER (abstract) “The anti-entropic force of virucidal ultraviolet (UV) light links guanine–cytosine (G⋅C) Watson–Crick base pairing from hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution to supercoiled DNA, which protects the organized genomes of all living genera from…

Epigenetic (re)programming of behavior (2)

The reports on this research bear repeating. Ants Can Change Their Roles, Study Finds Excerpt: The researchers found that certain compounds could modify proteins called histones, which affect how tightly DNA is coiled and whether certain other proteins are able to gain access to it. My comment: The molecular mechanisms of nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in histones that stabilize supercoiled DNA in the organized genomes of all invertebrates and invertebrates are conserved across all living genera. If they…
