Autophagy.pro vs Nature Publications Group

Autophagy is the antiphage defense strategy (James V. Kohl: December 8, 2016) Autophagy.pro was launched on 11 December 2017 See for comparison from the Nature Publications Group.  First, they try to establish a more complicated new definition with several different pathways Autophagy Autophagy is a process by which cellular material is degraded by lysosomes or […]

Vulgar Antagonists vs Quantum Effects

Exosome Cargo Could Be Drug Target For Neuropathic Pain My discussion attempt was removed by Dfm Prime, who claims to be a patient advocate for those who are suffering from neurological insult. See: Works at Neurosensory Neuroregenerative Research Foundation Publication: Catechol-O-Methyl Transferase Inhibition Reduces Symptoms of Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder See for comparison: Oppositional COMT […]

Light-activated error free DNA repair (2)

Summary: In the diagram and diatribes that accompany claims about de novo changes in electrons and the production of nucleotides, the amount of pseudoscientific nonsense becomes perfectly clear. Pseudoscientists start with energy-dependent changes but call the changes de novo changes in electrons. That allows the pseudoscientists to dismiss any facts about how the creation of […]

Long-term adaptation replaces evolution (2)

The food energy-dependent “doubling up” on ‘junk DNA’ is biophysically constrained by the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. The metabolism of food to species-specific pheromones links the conserved molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera to healthy longevity via what is known about amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA, which […]

For God and Country

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 […]

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (5)

Summary: If he was not still dead, the 1965 Nobel Laureate, Richard P. Feynman might claim that this year’s Physics Prize was awarded for “human idiocy.” Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded to LIGO Black Hole Researchers Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, pronounced in 1916, suggested that matter and energy would warp the geometry of space-time […]

God vs host-derived creation of virus-driven pathology

Summary: The virus-driven theft of quantized energy forces cells to compete for nutrient energy-dependent RNA-mediated reprogramming in the context of the structure of photons, one-carbon metabolism, autophagy, and the physiology of reproduction, which links energy-dependent changes in chirality from base pairs to RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions. Host-derived viral transporter protein for nitrogen uptake in infected […]
