Coherently organized healthy longevity (3)

  Development of MicroRNAs as Potential Therapeutics against Cancer 7/15/20 The perfect pairing of the miRNA with the target mRNA promotes mRNA degradation, while imperfect base pairing will lead to protein translational repression. God’s UV light-activated “Perfect Pairing” prevents cancer and all other forms of virus-driven pathology. See: Light-mediated strong coupling between a mechanical oscillator and atomic spins 1 meter apart 5/10/20 To achieve quantum-coherent coupling (40), g must also exceed all thermal and quantum back-action decoherence rates. This is…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (3)

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (2) The COMT Val158Met polymorphism supposedly is not found in species other than humans See: Global variation in the frequencies of functionally different catechol-O-methyltransferase alleles This is also the first study establishing the COMT*L allele as the derived allele unique to humans. Other organisms do not commit suicide. That suggests the human specific COMT Val158Met substitution may be important to those who know very little about suicide prevention. For instance, see: The catechol-o-methyltransferase Val158Met polymorphism…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (2)

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (1) Terry Crews details alleged sexual assault by ‘high level’ Hollywood exec “This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…” Crews tweeted Tuesday. This claim helps to link the celebrity status of Hollywood victims like Robin Williams to the suicide rate in veterans who have returned from military service overseas with viruses. The viruses clearly link energy-dependent changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (1)

The structure-energy landscape of NMDA receptor gating …using single-molecule Forster resonance energy transfer (smFRET), we map the energy landscape of the first transmembrane segment of the Rattus norvegicus NMDA receptor under resting and various liganded conditions. These results show kinetically and structurally distinct changes associated with apo, agonist-bound, and inhibited receptors linked by a linear mechanism of gating at this site. Furthermore, the smFRET data suggest that allosteric inhibition by zinc occurs by an uncoupling of the agonist-induced changes at…

How to find a “holy grail” under your nose

Proteomics provides new leads into nerve regeneration Excerpt: “…the “holy grail” of regenerating a nerve enough for it to resume its function has been largely elusive.” My comment:  Theorists who are looking for the “holy grail” of nerve cell regeneration don’t realize that it is literally ‘right under their nose.’ The sense of smell links the anti-entropic epigenetic effects of the sun’s biological energy to nutrient-dependent DNA repair via the light-induced de novo creation of amino acids and the amino…
