When it Comes to Chromosomes, You Have Been Misled

(Bitchute Channel)

Chromosomes Explained With a Rubber Band Model

 

This is actually two blogs in one:

Blog #1 can be found under the page tab: General Posts. This is the one you may want to check out first. I update the blog here whenever I discover new exciting information.

Blog #2 is about the fallacies associated with the study of science and how they interfere with the general pursuit of knowledge and discovery. These are under the page tab Rantings of a Mad Scientist.

The biological models tab contains a list of reference links relating to the models that is periodically updated.

Throughout Blog #1, you will find a variety of microphotographs, some of them repeated for emphasis. Here is an example of one of them:

Circles crop

It’s pretty, mysterious, and full of little beaded circles that appear to be emanating from a larger “mother ship”.  At least, that’s how my Ph.D. advisor described them at Ohio State University almost 25 years ago. These were actually discovered after I had already completed my Ph.D., so you won’t find them in my dissertation or any subsequent manuscripts. They came out of mouse cells that were in the process of dying under the microscope. The green color is due to fluorescence from a dye the cells were exposed to that allows nucleic acids to light up under this kind of microscope.  I managed to “coax” them out of dying cells using dilute acid that partially degrades the DNA.

If you are a DNA biologist, you may want to skip down to the part where I “boil” the blog down regarding origins of replication, promoters, enhancers, and splice sites.

Since I have no idea of your level of mastery of biology over the years, I am going to assume that you at least know something about human chromosomes and perhaps other mammals. If you don’t, you may need to do a quick google review before you go any further. If you find this intimidating or overwhelming, I will give you the “skinny” on it. You can always review it later.

Here is how a typical textbook depicts a mammalian chromosome:

Chromosome

Looks like four weiners stuck together. If you check more closely, the textbook will indicate that each “weiner” is composed of a single, tightly wound, continuous thread of DNA covered with other materials like proteins. Such a complex is called chromatin. This thread travels from one short weiner to the adjacent long weiner. The weiners on the bottom are considered as “copies” of the ones on top as long as sex isn’t involved. The two weiners (long and short), together with their copies are connected together in the middle by a structure called a centromere.

There is a particular kind of chromosome called a lampbrush chromosome discovered  back in the 1880’s. You can get a good idea of what they look like using the Wiki link above. These chromosomes have loops of DNA sticking out from them, making them look like old-fashioned lampbrushes. It is generally assumed that these loops are merely part of a continuous structure of DNA making up the entire chromosome. However, they are not randomly produced and have defined fixed locations within the chromosome. Studies in the late 1970’s show such loops appear to be universal among all kinds of chromosomes. A good source for understanding the relation of DNA loops to global chromosome structure can be found in the following 2002 NIH reference link. These loops behave like individual DNA domains, as if they were separate chromosomes themselves. Such an arrangement indicates complex temporal coordination of gene expression. In other words, these DNA domains cooperate with one another for the greater good of the cell. How these structures may have come to be part of our chromosomes is the main subject of this entire blog: smaller chromosomes building bigger chromosomes.

Bacterial chromosomes are generally circular in shape and have a wide range of sizes. A circle with a circumference of 340 microns (millionth of a meter) would be in the lower size range. Breaking this circle and laying it out end to end gives you a linear length of 340 microns which is 34 times the diameter of an average human nucleus. There is more than a million microns of DNA within this nucleus. To give you some idea of this magnitude, check out the graphic below:

Nuclear DNA

We need more than 29 of these “blocks”, each containing 100 threads                                                                          of DNA to fill in the human nucleus with all 46 chromosomes.

That’s a lot of DNA to fit inside that tiny little nucleus, don’t you think? However, according to textbooks, all of that DNA is fused together into just 46 pieces of “rope”called chromosomes. Now imagine a piece of DNA like the one shown above breaking off or replicating from the main strand of a relatively small human chromosome, say one that is only 1700 times the length of the diameter of the nucleus. Now imagine this piece of DNA somehow coming back on itself and ligating the ends to form a  340 micron circle. Not much wiggle room is there? Even if there was, the chances of this  meandering 340 micron thread of DNA spontaneously doing this is pretty remote at best. Yet, somehow it happens. Textbooks indicate that pieces of DNA the size of bacterial chromosomes can form into small circles within the human nucleus. You can learn more about this under general postings.

Wouldn’t it make more sense if that piece of DNA was circular to begin with? Imagine again, circles of DNA attached to other circles like grapes on a vine, easily plucked off from the main body. The photomicrograph shown above shows exactly this, only the grapes are beaded circles. Could these circles be a plucked version of lamp brush loops?

You would think scientists would be jumping all over this, wouldn’t you? You would be wrong. Indeed, the greatest mystery of all may be why they are NOT jumping all over this. After all, it has been 28 years since they were first discovered, and still nothing crops up in the literature. Now why is that?

You will find more about this under Blog #2.  Suffice it to say, when a well-respected scientist tells you privately that “they will kill you for this!”, something is definitely rotten in Denmark, don’t you think?

Well, the stakes are high here. Many people are completely invested in a linear DNA human chromosome model, even to the point of sweeping aside discoveries such as these. Just check the literature and you’ll see what I mean. So in the great scheme of things, should it really matter to you how a human chromosome is put together? Well, only if you want to expand our knowledge of  genetic diseases, aging, human development, and cancer, among other things.

You realize this doesn’t have to be the end of this. I know there are some very wealthy philanthropists out there looking for a worthy cause. All they have to do is contact me to learn more and how to move it forward. If you know anyone like that, please ask them to contact me.

Questions and comments are welcome.

Let me boil things down about this blog as best as I can in as little space as possible. I believe the following things about chromosomes:

They are comprised of interconnected circles of chromatin joined together at their origins of replication. These circles are capable of fusing together during differentiation or completely separating, resulting in the loss of DNA circles.

Paired origins of replication from adjacent replicon circles of DNA give rise to promoters of transcription by fusing together and losing DNA vital to replication.

Paired origins of replication give rise to enhancers of transcription and/or replication when they separate from one another and one of them is discarded.

Paired origins of replication from adjacent replicon circles of DNA give rise to splice sites by fusing together and losing DNA vital to both replication and transcription.

These processes occur through phylogeny and ontogeny. In other words, these events occurred eons ago (ancestral) or they occur only when the embryo begins to differentiate into tissues (species specific).

You will understand what I am saying more clearly if you click on this video link. It is a roughly 40 minute presentation.

Here is some preliminary evidence to support my hypotheses. There are many additional references within this blog, my website, dissertation, and manuscripts. I would appreciate any additional information you can provide to help me fill out the table below:

    You made some nice points there. I did a search on the topic and found most guys will approve with your site.

  2. Awesome stuff you guys got here.I really like the theme of the website and how well you organized the content. It’s a marvelous job I will come back and check you out sometime,come on over to my site and i will show you how to make a full time living with your blog without selling anything using the internet’s most powerful marketing scraping and posting software “scrapebox”

  3. Throughout the grand pattern of things you get an A+ with regard to hard work. Where exactly you actually lost everybody was first in your facts. You know, it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, allow me say to you what did give good results. Your authoring is actually pretty convincing and this is most likely the reason why I am making the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can easily notice a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not convinced of just how you seem to connect your points which inturn help to make the actual conclusion. For the moment I shall yield to your issue however wish in the future you actually connect the facts much better.

    • So sorry for such a late response to your comment. I can see why you find some of my conclusions as giant leaps of faith. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts here. To gain any depth in how I come up with my hypotheses requires perusing not only my blog but also many of the papers which are cited here. This is why I started up a series of Bitchute videos: https://www.bitchute.com/channel/1nKdCzP3wq0M/. I think your best bet would be to look at my most recent Bitchute video which provides a visual interpretation of my “ARR” manuscripts. These manuscripts can be found right here on my blog and they have been downloaded numerous times. They are quite technical in nature, hence the use of a video to boil it all down for the casual visitor. Of course, you can always ask me any questions you may have about any of the content in this blog, videos, or literature via e mail: fabernathy@sbcglobal.net. In fact, I have posted a transcript of a “DNA interview” I had with a “reporter” right here on this blog. You can locate it on the main menu bar page tabs above this blog.

    I believe you have mentioned some very interesting details , thanks for the post.

  5. Eldora says:

    I really appreciate this post. I have been looking everywhere for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You have made my day! Thx again!

  6. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries
    that they just don’t know about. You managed to
    hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
