Skip to comments.The Histone Code (genetic code not the only code?)
Posted on 01/08/2008 7:28:22 PM PST by GodGunsGuts
It is now clear that genetics wont be able to answer all of our questions about human development and disease. These basic biological processes rely heavily on epigenetics the ability to fine-tune the expression of specific genes.
This regulation of gene expression is essential for defining cellular identity and the dysregulation of these processes results in a variety of human diseases. Therefore, understanding these mechanisms will not only enhance our basic knowledge but will also lead to the improved detection, therapy and prognoses of several human diseases.
The histone code hypothesis predicts that the post-translational modifications of histones, alone or in combination, function to direct specific and distinct DNA-templated programs.

So, the more we know, the more we don’t know.............
Very intersting ping!
I need Hildebeast, the smartest woman on the planet, to explain this to me!
It will not help creationism one bit. Sorry.
I would say, the more we learn how “fine-tuned” life is, the more we should be looking for the possibility of a “fine-tuner.”
Let's see...how did it go? From previous info; proteins could vary somewhat, depending on what other neighboring alleles were present, or not? Something like that.
It's as if there are codes, within the code? As opposed to being simply "here's the gene that makes this protein" [with no variation, period].
I just wonder how many codes we will find as we go forward. Codes upon codes upon codes...We truly are fearfully and WONDERFULLY made!
Aah, come on. Do you have to be such a one-trick pony? Such a one note Johnny? (three cord wonder?)
You're deeper than that. I've even seen you be that way, a time or two... 8^)
==It will not help creationism one bit.
God’s creation does not need the help of science. Quite the contrary...Science needs God’s creation.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled program ---
(I'd better go follow the link and read the article, lol!)
That’s what I noticed in college, even in all my meteorology courses. Every thing we learned raised a whole host of questions that still needed to be answered.
Isn’t God’s creation fascinating!
PS Remember that article I posted about the “Guinea Pig Kids”?
A code is a basic construct of language. Only intelligent beings use language. If biology has built in codes, it implies an intelligent code giver created it all. Seems rather intuitive to me.
Same here. But some FRevolutionists find this intuitive notion highly controversial...even anathema. Indeed, they have gone so far as to say that evolution is the study of natural phenomena that give the “appearance” of design. They remind me of Buddhists who seek to convince mankind that all is illusion. They have even adopted a kind of yin and yang (random mutation plus natural selection).
