Chemistry Nobel Celebrates Cell Complexity

first_imgA discovery rivalling the elucidation of the genetic code is the structure of the ribosome – the “molecular machine” that translates the DNA code into proteins.  Untangling the complexity of this multi-part system won three scientists the Nobel Prize for Chemistry (see BBC News).  The winners are Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Thomas Steitz and Ada Yonath.    Science Daily included a photo model of the ribosome and described its action:Inside every cell in all organisms, there are DNA molecules.  They contain the blueprints for how a human being, a plant or a bacterium, looks and functions.  But the DNA molecule is passive.  If there was nothing else, there would be no life.    The blueprints become transformed into living matter through the work of ribosomes.  Based upon the information in DNA, ribosomes make proteins: oxygen-transporting haemoglobin, antibodies of the immune system, hormones such as insulin, the collagen of the skin, or enzymes that break down sugar.  There are tens of thousands of proteins in the body and they all have different forms and functions.  They build and control life at the chemical level.    An understanding of the ribosome’s innermost workings is important for a scientific understanding of life.Some factoids gleaned from the reports: the ribosome contains “hundreds of thousands of atoms.”  New Scientist said that the ribosome includes a “fact-checker” which “explains why nature produces so few faulty proteins.”  Ramakrishnan said, “we knew this was a large molecular machine that translated genetic code to make proteins, but we didn’t know how it worked.”  It took many years of X-ray crystallography and other delicate techniques to determine the structure.  “We still don’t know exactly how it works, but we have made a tremendous amount of progress as a direct result of knowing what it looks like,” he added.    PhysOrg, echoing an AP story, brought Darwin into the picture – albeit briefly.  “Their work builds on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and, more directly, on the work done by James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, who won the 1962 Nobel Prize in medicine for mapping DNA’s double helix, the citation said.”  The article did not elaborate on the Darwin connection.  It appears to be a missing link.    PhysOrg also reported on an important link in the chain from code to protein that is coming to light: how the transcription process begins.  It’s another complex process still being explored.  Scientists in Munich have found one more step in the initiation process.  Patrick Cramer had this to say: “The findings led us to propose a model of the whole complicated process of transcription initiation, an operation that is of crucial importance in all organisms, because it determines which genes are expressed, and when.”  The process from gene to protein “must be carried out with great precision” and involves “the use of complicated assemblies made up of many different proteins, often referred to as molecular machines.”    Speaking of gene expression, an article last month on Science Daily revealed an even higher level of complexity: “protein regulators are themselves regulated.”  Helge Grosshans (Friedrich Miescher Institute) explained what he found: “What was formerly conceived of as a direct, straightforward pathway is gradually turning out to be a dense network of regulatory mechanisms: genes are not simply translated into proteins via mRNA.  MicroRNAs control the translation of mRNAs into proteins, and proteins in turn regulate the microRNAs at various levels.”Throwing Darwin’s name into this story was like tossing a fly into perfume.  Get it out as fast as you can.  Darwin had nothing to do with this; to him, a cell was a nearly featureless blob of protoplasm.  No way could he have envisioned any of this complex machinery.  If he had known about it, he might have become a creationist.    While these scientists are certainly deserving of recognition, the one to praise is the Creator of these amazing systems of information-guided machines.  They are just the latest in a long sequence of scientists who have gradually lifted the veil on the factory only to marvel at what they found.  For a stimulating read, pick up a copy of Stephen Meyer’s Signature in the Cell (see 06/27/2009 Resource of the Week).  You’ll not only learn the fascinating story of how these systems were discovered and how they work; you’ll be convinced forever that modern biochemistry leaves Darwinism defunct in the wastebin of discredited myths.  No attempt to resurrect Charlie’s corpse can succeed with what we have learned.  Let the dead bury their dead.  Follow the living Lord.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Bob Stoops Agrees With Mike Gundy That OSU Has One Loss

first_imgAfter Oklahoma State thumped TCU on Saturday in Ft. Worth, Mike Gundy once again visited that pesky loss to Central Michigan way back in September.“Nobody will ever convince me we didn’t get the win,” said Gundy. “I know Kirby had mentioned the committee feels a certain way about that game, but I think Kirby is playing poker and they see us as a 10-win team. That’s just my opinion.”I expected that.What I didn’t expect is for Bob Stoops to agree with Gundy after OU crushed West Virginia in Morgantown on Saturday night.“In my eyes they only have one loss, if you play by the rules,” said Stoops. “They review everything else out here. They review a first down. You couldn’t review if that play should have been allowed or not. I have one of those. I count myself with one extra victory. That one at Oregon that everyone counted as a loss. My record book is a little different than everybody else’s.”Stoops is of course referencing the crazy Oregon-OU game from 2006 when Oregon recovered an onside kick it touched early and should not have gotten. The refs for that game were also suspended.One loss, two losses or zero losses, it doesn’t matter when it comes to the Big 12 (although it might for the CFB Playoff!) because Bedlam, for the fourth time in six seasons will once again be for the Big 12 championship.

100 Days of Summer: Get to Know No. 31 Tre Flowers

first_imgWe’re just one month (!!!) away from the return of college football. What better way to get ready that than to look at one of the leaders of the Cowboy defense, Tre Flowers, who has one last year to add to his legacy at Oklahoma State?How he got to OSUFlowers, the former three-star safety from Judson High School (Converse, Tex.), picked Oklahoma State over offers from Arizona State, Kansas State, Houston and others. He was the No. 32 rated safety in the 2013 class according to Scout.What he’s done in StillwaterAfter a redshirt year in 2013, Flowers played in 12 games as a freshman in 2014 immediately making his mark. He finished sixth on the team with 56 tackles (44 total), two tackles for loss and three pass breakups. He’s been consistently improving since and comes into 2017 as the Cowboys’ leading returning tackler.Role in 2017Flowers is a preseason candidate for the Jim Thorpe Award who returns with more starts (32) and consecutive starts (26) than any other defender. He and newly-named safety Ramon Richards make quite the duo. One’s a yin to the other’s yang.Flowers, the mainstay safety who has been a bit overlooked due to the production of Jordan Sterns, has a personality to match. He’s not the flashy, vocal leader that Ramon might be but don’t mistake his subdued personality as passive. He can lay the wood on folks. But with all the moving pieces and fresh faces, Flowers will need to increase his leadership role in the secondary.Noteworthy stats and highlightsThere have been plenty of Tre Flowers highlights over the last three years but we’ll stick with a couple that feature his ability to dispossess the opponent — a skill which Flowers and the Cowboy defense will need to showcase to give OSU its best chance at a Big 12 title.Here’s his interception against TCU’s Trevone Boykin in 2015.And here’s a nice strip against Iowa State wide receiver Carson Epps from 2016.

Position Preview: Oklahoma State Quarterbacks Athletic, but Inexperienced

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The college football season is about two months away.As the country waits for its top amateur sporting season, PFB starts its position breakdowns. We’ll start with the most talked about position of any football team, but especially this one, as Oklahoma State will have a new gunslinger in the backfield in 2019.The QB RoomWith the departures of John Kolar and Keondre Wudtee, the Cowboys have only four quarterbacks on its roster as of now. If that number holds entering the fall, that’ll be one of the thinner groups of quarterbacks in recent years.Dru Brown (R-Sr.): Dru Brown enters the season as the only quarterback on OSU’s 2019 roster to have played a snap as a Cowboy. It came as a handoff in the Liberty Bowl. A California native, Brown is at his third school after spending the 2015 season at juco College of San Mateo and the 2016 and 2017 seasons at Hawaii. Brown is obviously the group’s most experienced player, already having thrown for 5,273 yards at the FBS level.Brendan Costello (Fr.): Brendan Costello’s decision to enroll early to a team without a returning starting quarterback was a smart one. Although Costello isn’t likely to win the job, the extra reps he got this spring can only help him going forward. Another California native, Costello hails from San Clemente High School, a school that has grown used to producing D-I quarterbacks. As a senior with the Tritons last year, Costello threw for 2,328 yards and 22 touchdowns while running for another 658 yards and nine scores.Spencer Sanders (R-Fr.): The third-highest ranked quarterback to ever come to OSU, Spencer Sanders road the bench through all of OSU’s 7-6 2018 season to many fans’ chagrin. Sanders went 46-6 as a starter at Denton-Ryan (TX), as he was All-Texas everything. Sanders brings athleticism to the OSU backfield that hasn’t been seen in a while. As a senior in high school, Sanders threw for 3,845 yards and 54 touchdowns and ran for another 1,380 yards and 16 touchdowns.Shaun Taylor (R-Fr.): The last time OSU walk-on Shaun Taylor was a starting quarterback, he put up some gaudy numbers. In 2017, Taylor threw for 4,153 yards and 60 touchdowns as a senior at All Saints Episcopal in Fort Worth. All Saints went 11-1 that season, scoring 46.7 points per game.Committed QBShane Illingworth (2020): Another Californian, Shane Illingworth is the Cowboys highest-rated 2020 commit as of now. Illingworth will forever be the first quarterback commit new offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson landed. The 6-7, 234-pound Illingworth is the 191st-ranked player in the 2020 class, and he is the eighth-rated pro-style quarterback in the country.2019 ExpectationsThe two-horse race that started at the final whistle of the Liberty Bowl is still without an announced winner.The consensus from the outside seems to be with Sanders, and that argument has some backing. Gundy talked extensively last year that it takes time for a quarterback to truly feel comfortable. Going with the redshirt freshman would build that experience, where as going with the fifth-year senior would force OSU to restart that clock again with a new quarterback in 2020.With that said, if it’s determined that Brown gives OSU the best chance to win in 2019, going with anyone else wouldn’t make too much sense.Apart from pregame warm-ups, Brown’s on snap in the Liberty Bowl and old film, the open spring practice is all the public has seen of the quarterback battle. At that open practice, the two performed fairly evenly. Both had good moments, and both threw interceptions. Afterward, Gundy said that’s how it had gone most of the spring.“There’s been days that Spencer has played better, there’s been days that Dru has played better,” Gundy said after the open practice. “… We’ll let the thing run through the summer and into August, and as soon as we feel like that we know the guy that gives our team the best chance for success, we’ll say, ‘You’re the quarterback,’ and move on.”At Princeton, Gleeson wasn’t afraid to use multiple quarterbacks, sometimes even using multiple quarterback at the same time. Although Gundy didn’t go to the extent of saying both will start at Oregon State, he said there is a possibility both play in 2019.Position StrengthsAll D-I football players are athletes, but this quarterback room looks to be an extra athletic bunch.All three scholarship quarterbacks are considered dual-threats, particularly Sanders. As a senior in high school, Sanders ran for 100+ yards in eight of his team’s 15 games.As a sophomore at Hawaii, Brown ran for 306 yards, and Costello averaged 55 rushing yards a game as a high school senior last fall.Mason Rudolph wasn’t much of a runner in his dominant tenure in Stillwater, but Taylor Cornelius showed his wheels some last season, rushing for 406 yards and 10 touchdowns.Having that extra threat of attack in 2019 could be a big deal for an offensive looking for an identity with a new coordinator.Position WeaknessesExperience is the unit’s obvious weakness, and rightly so.Of the four quarterbacks on OSU’s roster, three haven’t played a snap of college football. The one who has, has played one snap at OSU, and the others came at the junior college level and in the Mountain West Conference.Most Big 12 teams are like sports cars. If driven correctly, it’ll go fast and look awesome. If not, there isn’t a whole lot (of defense) that’ll protect you from whatever you’re about to hit. Brown and/or Sanders will get the keys to a bright orange automobile this year, one fresh out of driving school and the other used to driving lesser cars.last_img read more

Sean Gleeson and Charlie Dickey Bringing Toughness to OSU’s Offense

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. At Big 12 Media Days, Mike Gundy admitted that his football team wasn’t very tough last year. In fact, discipline and toughness were two buzz words echoed by Gundy throughout media day activities and then again by his staff during Monday’s media golf outing.The Cowboys showed a lack of mental toughness, for sure, but coaches like first-year offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson see a need to ramp up the physicality on the field as well — two things which really tie into each other.“The three things that our guys are going to be nauseous hearing from me every single day is that we want to be fast, physical and hungry,” said Gleeson. “I think you’ll see that as it relates to the no-huddle, in the way that we compete. “There’s going to be some physicality — some East Coast physicality — to what we’re doing. The motivational stuff — having hunger — is really important to me in this game.”With all the speed and finesse that OSU’s best offenses were known for, it’s easy to forget just how tough some of those O-lines were under Joe Wickline. OSU needs to get back to that type of approach in its front and it appears (hopefully) that it may have the guy for the job in Charlie Dickey.The longtime Kansas State offensive line coach is known for churning out hard-nosed, physical O-lines. And his approach will be something he said he learned from Bill Snyder.“There’s a lot of similarities between these two programs and maybe the personalities are different, but the first day I got here, the first day, our first staff meeting, Coach Gundy talked about us being a more tougher, more physical, more disciplined football team,” said Dickey. “That’s all Coach Snyder ever talked about. Those are the things he would talk about — being the toughest, most disciplined team out there. It was like hearing the same thing. That’s what we’re stressing, and that’s what we want to be. That’s what we’re trying to be this year at Oklahoma State.”“I just want us to get better every day,” continued Dickey. “My goal is for us to be tougher and to be more physical and to be more disciplined and really focus on those attributes. I know if we do, that will carry over to us being successful on the field.”Gleeson was asked a similar question about shoring up deficiencies in the trenches and he was confident in Dickey and the group.“Well they’re in Charlie Dickey’s hands so we’re gonna be in good shape,”said Gleeson. “Some of the motivation that I have for this whole year for guys in that group like Marcus Keyes, for instance, and Johnny Wilson. They’ve been around here for a long time.“People wanna talk about a two-year plan, a three-year plan. I’ve got like a 30-second plan. The reason for that is that I want to make sure that those guys get my best cause they deserve it. I think that beyond us kind of rallying around that group, Marcus and Johnny, and putting our best foot forward for those guys, I think there’s a tremendous amount of growth so far in that group and I would expect under Charlie’s tutelage them to do a wonderful job.”The confidence is mutual between Dickey, the veteran of 32 FBS seasons, and his young OC who is entering his first.“It’s been great with Sean,” said Dickey. “Sean, he’s got a vision. He knows what he wants, and he’s very passionate. He’s very intense, very detailed. He knows exactly where he wants this offense to go. I’m really excited. I’m really excited to get a chance to work with him, and the whole offensive staff has been awesome.”last_img read more
