Human Pheromones: Epigenetic Effects on Hormones and Their Affects on Behavior

A detailed model exemplifies the effects of olfactory/pheromonal conditioning, which alters genetically predisposed, nutrient chemical-dependent, hormone-driven mammalian behavior and choices for pheromones that control reproduction via their effects on luteinizing hormone.

Evolution at work sans random mutations (Part 2)

Mitochondrial-to-cell size ratio in HeLa cells links reproduction by fission in yeasts to the advent of sexual reproduction in yeasts via the same nutrient chemical-dependent molecular mechanisms that are important to cancer research.

Epistasis: Epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and their metabolism to pheromones

epistasis is achieved via the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals, which are balanced by the epigenetic effects of their metabolism to pheromones that control reproduction in species from microbes to man.

Creating new genes (and controlling diversity)

The epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals on gene duplication and species diversity and the ability to metabolize nutrient chemicals is controlled by the metabolism of the nutrient chemicals to pheromones that epigenetically control reproduction in all species

Epigenetic effects of viruses on cellular homeostasis

control of homeostasis by the epigenetic effects of proper nutrition and social stress inhibition might prevent our diet-driven and social stress-driven extinction.

Evolutionarily innovative DNA mistakes?

The toxin did not kill the organism that ingested it, which is great for that individual. But how did the epigenetic effects of the toxin on intracelluar signaling and stochastic gene expression contribute to species survival

More complicated than 1-2-3

Has anyone calculated the odds that two 1-2-3 stage dependent exaptation events would concurrently occur?

Docosahexaenoic acid vs. creative use of mutations in natural selection

When we realize that nutrient chemicals metabolize to species-specific pheromones that control reproduction in species from microbes to man, the story line about random mutations or the effect of any mutation on adaptive evolution changes.

Natural selection and the behavior of whole organisms

Was I not the first to link the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and pheromones to the development of behavior in species from microbes to man?

Natural selection: New insights are unlikely

Natural selection occurs at the cellular level because cells select for nutrients that enable their survival and the nutrient chemicals metabolize to pheromones that control reproduction
