Biological Function of Autophagy (1)

Autophagy is oxygen-dependent. Oxidative phosphorylation links the Creation of sunlight and water to the ATP-dependent creation of RNA and to biophysically constrained RNA interference, which protects organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. Hypoxia causes the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA.

See: Dependence of RNA synthesis in isolated thymus nuclei on glycolysis, oxidative carbohydrate catabolism and a type of “oxidative phosphorylation” (1964)

The synthesis of RNA in isolated thymus nuclei is ATP dependent.

The facts about RNA synthesis have since been placed into the context of light-activated microRNA biogenesis.

For recent examples of scientific truths, see:

1) Translational landscape of protein-coding and non-protein-coding RNAs upon light exposure in Arabidopsis 12/3/19

2) A Brassica miRNA Regulates Plant Growth and Immunity through Distinct Modes of Action 11/30/19

3) Explaining Gene Expression Using Twenty-One MicroRNAs 12/2/19

For an example of obfuscation of facts, see:

Cerebral oxygenation during locomotion is modulated by respiration 12/4/19


This tight interplay at the behavioral and anatomical levels between cortical arousal and respiration may help maintaining healthy oxygenation for optimal cortical function.

The fact that mammals must breathe or die was reported by other morons as: Respiration key to increase oxygen in the brain 12/4/19

…researchers looked at oxygenation in the somatosensory cortex and the frontal cortex—which is an area involved in cognition—and the olfactory bulb—an area involved in the sense of smell…

See for comparison: Olfaction Warps Visual Time Perception 3/17/17

The authors reported that the energy-dependent Creation of the sense of smell in bacteria has been linked to our visual perception of energy and mass via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and food energy-dependent ecological adaptations. That fact overwhelms the ability of theorists to comprehend anything more than the fact that mammals must breathe or die.

What then can be said about the fact that virus-driven global biogeochemical cycles have been linked from microbial ecology to biophysically constrained adaptations, and they have been linked from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA to all pathology?


 Eukaryotic plankton diversity in the sunlit ocean (2015)

 Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor (2016)

The facts about plankton diversity compared to virus-driven pathology (the viral hecatomb) are typically not reported in the context of reports about the need for mammals to breathe.

The contextual differences can be compared to use of nomenclature. For example, the term geovirology was invented to obfuscate the facts about geobiology (biophysically constrained oxygen-dependent microRNA-mediated viral latency).
