A model of ecological adaptation

Autophagy-related microRNA-mediated disease treatment (1)

Nanomaterials for Autophagy-Related miRNA-34a Delivery in Cancer Treatment Indexed on PubMed 8/16/20 This article is part of the Research Topic Novel Cancer Treatments based on Autophagy Modulation View all 11 Articles  1)  “…understanding of the molecular mechanisms controlling autophagy…is still far from being elucidated.” That is a lie. Good questions lead towards understanding. Question: How […]

Pattern recognition vs evolutionary processes (revisited)

Summary: Recent findings suggest that polyphenols display the ability to reverse adverse epigenetic regulation involved in pathological conditions, such as obesity, metabolic disorder, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, and various forms of cancer. That suggests the ignorance of pseudoscientists who fail to link pattern recognition from the food that organisms eat to the pheromone-controlled physiology of […]

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine

MicroRNA-34 directly targets pair-rule genes and cytoskeleton component in the honey bee Our findings point to miR-34-5p as novel regulatory component in the complex molecular cascade that governs insect segmentation and to a broader role of miRNAs in the early development due to the detection of mature transcripts from both 5p and 3p arms for […]

De novo gene creation: Ignoring the experimental evidence

Regularly Whiffing Essential Oils Can Retrain Lost Sense of Smell It’s not entirely clear how olfactory training works on a neurological level. Olfactory training links the experience-dependent de novo creation of G protein-coupled receptors to supercoiled DNA. Conserved molecular mechanisms link food odors and pheromones from the innate immune system to the physiology of reproduction. […]

Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory (2)

Evolutionary Constraints in the β-Globin Cluster: The Signature of Purifying Selection at the δ-Globin (HBD) Locus and Its Role in Developmental Gene Regulation Conclusion: … the results here presented indicate that purifying selection is driving not only HBD evolution but also its neighbor pseudogene, HBBP1. In the light of recent advances in the characterization of […]
