Phenols: Laws of physics meet biology

Can the second law of thermodynamics hold in cell cultures?


…for in vivo systems, the rules for self-organization require further investigations (Stuart, 1995), especially for multi-cellular organisms considering the exchange of matter between different cell types. Knowing this will allow us to better predict the emergent properties of the “real” living systems.

My comment: When Jay R. Feierman realizes how ridiculous his comments about mutations and evolution have become, he posts  links to articles like this one to the ISHE’s yahoo group. It addresses the obvious need to link the Laws of Physics to Kohl’s “Laws of Biology.”

…sometimes called phenolics, are a class of chemical compounds consisting of a hydroxyl group (—OH) bonded directly to an aromatic hydrocarbon group. The simplest of the class is phenol, which is also called carbolic acid C6H5OH. Phenolic compounds are classified as simple phenols or polyphenols based on the number of phenol units in the molecule.[1][2][3]

Phenol – the simplest of the phenols.

Quercetin, a typical flavonoid, is a polyphenol

Synonyms are arenols[4] or aryl alcohols.[5]
Phenolic compounds are synthesized industrially; they also are produced by plants and microorganisms, with variation between and within species.[6]

My comment: Phenols appear to link the sun’s anti-entropic energy to the prevention of pathology via the Laws of Physics and Kohl’s Laws of Biology via nutrient energy dependent base pair changes and RNA-mediated events that clearly link mutations to pathology.

Complementary investigations may suggest remedy of human cancers by the extract of BA- and CA-fed hazel cells which meanwhile provides the body with the advantage of decrease of detrimental effect of free radicals in non cancerous cells.

My comment: Anyone who is interested in linking what is currently known about the “Laws of Physics” to “Kohl’s Laws of Biology,” which link biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent protein folding chemistry from the sun’s anti-entropic energy to RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all living genera, may also want to see:
The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression

…the miRNA profile of mature ejaculated sperm may in fact have downstream consequences upon embryonic development. The potential for sperm miRNA affecting zygote development has recently been reported in the literature [18] and has interesting implications for the use of sperm miRNA profiles as indicators of potential male fertility.
