RNA-mediated.com (topic descriptions)

The life cycle of an mRNA in a eukaryotic cell RNA is transcribed in the nucleus processing, it is transported to the cytoplasm and translated by the ribosome. Finally the mRNA is degraded

Another companion domain has been added to the ScentofEros.com; Pheromones.com, PerfumingtheMind.com collection Intro to topics/catagories at RNA-mediated.com Information that links physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics from ecological variation to ecological adaptations via RNA-mediated events, such as the de novo creation…

Imagining that data historically supports evolutionary theory

human-evolution

1) Arguments in the evo-devo debate: say it with flowers! Abstract excerpt: A key question in evolutionary developmental biology is how DNA sequence changes have directed the evolution of morphological diversity. The widely accepted view was that morphological changes resulted…

Single-cell level assay of protein biosynthesis and degradation

terrarium eco system

High-throughput detection of miRNAs and gene-specific mRNA at the single-cell level by flow cytometry Excerpt: “We use this technique to show modulation of a microRNA critical for T-cell function, miR-155. We adapt this assay for simultaneous detection of mRNA and…

Thermodynamic constraints and ecological adaptations sans evolution

Physics

Relationship between protein thermodynamic constraints and variation of evolutionary rates among sites Excerpt: “…a two-variable model that combines stability and stress signi ficantly improves predictions. Therefore, both the overall stability [symbol] and the stress [symbol] seem to capture distinct thermodynamic constraints on…

Creation in 2013 vs nutrient excess, abnormal development, and disease

human-evolution

A review of what we’ve learned about Creation in 2013 History: Analysis of 6,515 exomes reveals the recent origin of most human protein-coding variants  Excerpt: “These rare variants are so recent that they appear as novel mutations, with relatively little time for…

Social experiences epigenetically effect gene networks

social interaction and brain

Networks of Genes Respond to Social Experiences October 13, 2013, from Searching for the Mind with Jon Lieff, M.D. Excerpt 1: “The gene networks of social experience are consistent through many animals.” My comment: Not just many animals; the gene…
