The approaches described can be employed broadly for the validation of miRNA-mediated negative regulation of any gene. Determining miRNA-mediated regulation of enzymes and transporters affecting drug metabolism is a critical step in designing personalized therapy and for understanding the mechanisms responsible for variations in the responses to therapeutic agents.
The “…miRNA-mediated regulation of enzymes and transporters affecting drug metabolism…” links the National Microbiome Initiative to the Precision Medicine Initiative and to all healthy longevity or to all virus-driven pathology in all living genera via differences in energy as information.
For review, see: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference
Feedback loops link quantized energy as information to biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. Light induced energy-dependent changes link angstroms to ecosystems from classical physics to chemistry/chirality and to molecular epigenetics/autophagy. The National Microbiome Initiative links microbial quorum sensing to the physiology of reproduction via endogenous RNA interference and chromosomal rearrangements. The rearrangements link energy-dependent fixed amino acid substitutions to the Precision Medicine Initiative via genome wide inferences of natural selection. This detailed representation of energy-dependent natural selection for codon optimality links biologically- based cause and effect from G protein-coupled receptors to RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and the functional structure of supercoiled DNA. Energy-dependent polycombic ecological adaptations are manifested in supercoiled DNA. Chromosomal inheritance links the adaptations from morphological phenotypes to healthy longevity via behavioral phenotypes. For contrast, virus-driven energy theft is the link from messenger RNA degradation to negative supercoiling, constraint breaking mutations, and hecatombic evolution. The viral hecatomb links transgenerational epigenetic inheritance from archaea to Zika virus-damaged DNA, which typically is repaired by endogenous RNA interference and fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in organized genomes.
For a historical perspective on what is known about energy-dependent RNA-mediated (aka microRNA-mediated) cell type differentiation, see:
By May 16, 2016, the innate antiphage defense strategy was linked from quantum physics to classical physics by 50,000 publications that mentioned microRNAs. Nineteen months later, every aspect of the microRNA-mediated gene expression that had already been linked to drug metabolism attests to the fact that not all scientists have followed the extant literature.
Many scientists are still among the pseudoscientists who who failed to notice the most obvious links from the antiphage defense strategy to healthy longevity. Perhaps they were also too busy to notice the most obvious links from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA to the need for drug therapies.
If so, that may explain why the drug therapies have been largely ineffective. The drug therapies may be like vaccinations. They appear to link the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA to more mutations, which clearly link the virus-driven theft of quantized energy to all pathology.
With more than 18,000 published works in the past 19 months, (8,000 in the past 8 months) it is time to again address the tipping point between quantum physics and classical physics in the context of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled microRNA-mediated cell type differentiation via what is known about autophagy.
In the context of drug metabolism, the energy-dependent microRNA-mediated creation of enzymes was linked from the metabolism of food to all biodiversity on Earth via pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction.
See for example page 19 of the sample report from Alpha Genomix that you can download as a pdf here. The food energy-dependent creation of the CYP enzymes protects our organized genome by biophysically constraining viral latency.

…the far-reaching war on science being conducted by the Trump administration, an assault on facts which, as several of our bloggers have noted, constitutes a removal of scientific evidence from the formation and discussion of public policy and an evisceration of funding and communication of vital research in medical research and regulation, public health, climate, energy, agriculture and education.
The only war on science that I know about, is the one in which serious scientists are Combating Evolution to Fight Disease. To place that claim into the context of what has happened during 2017, see the retraction of this article.
It was retracted because the authors mentioned the creator of the hand. The creation of the hand occurs only in the context of biophysically constrained viral latency.

In retrospect, we were totally blinded by our belief [in our findings]…we were not as careful or rigorous as we should have been (and as Tivoli was) in interpreting these experiments.
Where else besides PLOS have you seen a retraction for the mention of a creator? Where did PLOS report on the retraction for misrepresentations in “Nature Chemistry?” Who still believes that microRNA and messenger RNAs created each other so that they could automagically constrain viral latency?
Who else besides PLOS is waging a far-reaching war on science?
This atoms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptations links nutrient-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino acid substitutions to pheromone-controlled changes in the microRNA / messenger RNA balance and chromosomal rearrangements. The nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled changes are required for the thermodynamic regulation of intracellular signaling, which enables biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent protein folding; experience-dependent receptor-mediated behaviors, and organism-level thermoregulation in ever-changing ecological niches and social niches. Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological, social, neurogenic and socio-cognitive niche construction are manifested in increasing organismal complexity in species from microbes to man. Species diversity is a biologically-based nutrient-dependent morphological fact and species-specific pheromones control the physiology of reproduction. The reciprocal relationships of species-typical nutrient-dependent morphological and behavioral diversity are enabled by pheromone-controlled reproduction. Ecological variations and biophysically constrained natural selection of nutrients cause the behaviors that enable ecological adaptations. Species diversity is ecologically validated proof-of-concept. Ideas from population genetics, which exclude ecological factors, are integrated with an experimental evidence-based approach that establishes what is currently known. This is known: Olfactory/pheromonal input links food odors and social odors from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man during their development.
Scientific advisers to President Obama warn that the U.S. urgently needs a new biodefense strategy and should regularly brief President-elect Donald Trump on the dangers posed by new technologies like CRISPR, gene therapy, and synthetic DNA, which they say could be coöpted by terrorists.
See for comparison: 2017 Global Infectious Diseases Threats to the United States 12/22/16
Flu. Influenza remains one of the greatest threats to the US population killing on average 3,000-49,000 Americans annually. People at the greatest risk of severe flu and death are pregnant women, residents of long-term care facilities, the very old (adults over the age of 65), the very young (children less than 2), Native American populations, and those with underlying chronic conditions such as asthma, COPD, heart disease, obesity, and other conditions. Timely vaccination remains the most proven and effective way to avoid serious injury from influenza.
The new Trump Administration will face a formidable array of global and indigenous infectious disease threats in 2017. A Global Health Security Agenda will help provide a framework for tackling some of these tough issues, but enhanced efforts will be needed to prevent new epidemics, especially from vector-borne and zoonotic neglected tropical diseases, measles, and the ever-constant threats from AMR and flu.
The biggest threat that the Trump administration has faced in the first year is the fake news. The most recent example accused him of censorship at the CDC for his director’s efforts to biophysically constrain energy-dependent viral latency. The CDC director’s efforts to help others with budget concerns were linked to censorship, and the President of the United States was compared to Hitler. Wake up and “Remember the Alamo.”
SARCASM ALERT: No, that was a different war. Wake up and remember the Manhattan Project, which also linked censorship about energy to the winning of a war.
