The tipping point (revisited): 68,000 publications

MicroRNA  Items: 1 to 20 of 68011 (earlier today, on 12/21/17) See for example: In Vitro Validation of miRNA-Mediated Gene Expression Linked to Drug Metabolism 12/20/17 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 […]

The Scientist reports Szostak’s “honest error”

Top 10 Retractions of 2017 …Szostak’s lab could not reproduce the findings, which the group attributes to honest error. Please put the “honest error” into the perspective of what was reported in: Retraction Watch In retrospect, we were totally blinded by our belief [in our findings]… The claim that scientists were blinded by their belief […]

For God and Country

Trump challenges the CDC to remember 9/11

Synopsis: If you do not understand the experimentally established facts… use caution if you attempt to compare the President of the USA to Hitler. If you tell me I am being disrespectful or condescending,  you may be more embarrassed than Nobel Laureate, Jack Szostak, and be subjected to more ridicule than Neil deGrasse Tyson, who […]

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 […]

Can protein folding chemistry be understood by theorists?

Excerpt: The researchers believe their discovery dovetails with their research on how tumor viruses and cancer mutations change a cell’s DNA structure and organization to cause uncontrolled cell growth. Aye group discovers avenue for precision cancer treatment One challenge is that multiple variations, or isoforms, of the same protein can all catalyze the same cellular […]

MicroRNAs GnRH and the failure of sex research

Summary: “The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression” accurately represents what is known about food energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from soil microbes to humans. MicroRNAs are not new players in the hypothalamic control of fertility and the effects of food odors and pheromones on microRNAs […]

Functionally interdependent editing and methylation

Editing and methylation at a single site by functionally interdependent activities …cytosine 32 in the anticodon loop of Trypanosoma brucei tRNAThr is methylated to 3-methylcytosine (m3C) as a pre-requisite for C-to-U deamination. Formation of m3C in vitro requires the presence of both the T. brucei m3C methyltransferase TRM140 and the deaminase ADAT2/3. Once formed, m3C […]

Light-activated feedback loops vs self-organization of ecosystems

John Lieff has been trying to update his ridiculous misrepresentations of biologically-based cause and effect to match the accurate representations we made in a section on molecular epigenetics in our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review. From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior Nothing can stop him, but this will provide the next source for material that […]
