Just a short thought poem about the little broken jumping bits of RNA floating around in our cells.

Sometimes this is good and sometimes this cause havoc and cancer.

Think of this as:  “RNA interference.”

Although it was not discovered until the late 1990s, nearly 40 years after the genetic code for making proteins from genes was identified, the phenomenon of ‘RNA interference’ now is known to play an important role in fighting viral infection and in preventing genetic mayhem during reproduction of strands by preventing parts of the genome known as “jumping genes” from moving and disrupting DNA within stable, vital genes. Scientists’ growing understanding of the scope of RNA interference has inspired new experimental strategies for manipulating gene activity therapeutically.

Little broken parts of RNA can be forced to float in cells due to inordinate levels of real and imagined stress in our modern city lives.

So any gene may sow the seeds of its own inactivation or activation under the right circumstances.”

I will write more on this since APT and the cascading of inflammation creating all sorts modern illness needs to be understood at the very smallest building blocks of our human bodies.

 

The research was funded by the National Science Foundation and by the National Institutes of Health.

UCSF is a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide through advanced biomedical research, graduate-level education in the life sciences and health professions, and excellence in patient care. It includes top-ranked graduate schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy, a graduate division with nationally renowned programs in basic biomedical, translational and population sciences, as well as a preeminent biomedical research enterprise and two top-ranked hospitals, UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
