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 […]

Agilent technology and energy-dependent autophagy

The first step towards understanding the link from the creation of energy to metabolism-related cellular function is called energy phenotyping. It requires the  technology to measure energy-dependent changes in RNA-mediated metabolic switches via the RNA interference (RNAi) screening strategy. Endogenous RNAi must then be linked  to the prevention of the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA […]

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 […]

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 […]

Elsevier fails to support the concept of autophagy

Summary: Who lets biologically uninformed theorists make presumptions about evolution after all serious scientists have linked light-harvesting from energy-dependent changes in electrons to ecosystems in all living genera via natural selection for food energy-dependent codon optimality. Who lets them pretend not to know that the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction links autophagy to the transgenerational epigenetic […] vs Nature Publications Group

Autophagy is the antiphage defense strategy (James V. Kohl: December 8, 2016) 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
