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 […]

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 […]

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 (3)

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (2) The COMT Val158Met polymorphism supposedly is not found in species other than humans See: Global variation in the frequencies of functionally different catechol-O-methyltransferase alleles This is also the first study establishing the COMT*L allele as the derived allele unique to humans. Other organisms do not commit suicide. That […]

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (2)

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (1) Terry Crews details alleged sexual assault by ‘high level’ Hollywood exec “This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…” Crews tweeted Tuesday. This claim helps to link the celebrity status of Hollywood victims like Robin Williams to […]

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 […]

Stem cells do not create themselves

Summary: The energy-dependent cellular pathways have been detailed at all levels of examination from atoms to ecosystems in the context of physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics. The mere mention of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions may cause theorists to panic because it eliminates their pseudoscientific nonsense in the context of the claim that proteins do not […]

Your indifference is killing you and others (3)

Summary: The speed of light on contact with water links the creation of microRNAs to Optical control of membrane tethering and interorganellar communication at nanoscales MicroRNA flanking sequences are linked to all biodiversity via hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution. The physiology of reproduction links energy-dependent changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance to […]

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 […]
