In the latest issue of Nature, a definitive role for pseudogenes is established. In the last sentence of the Abstract the authors conclude:
These findings attribute a novel biological role to expressed pseudogenes, as they can regulate coding gene expression, and reveal a non-coding function for mRNAs.
Haven’t read the full article* (no time at present), but there’s a related link at PhysOrg.com that gives an overview.
Yes, “junk” DNA now “communicates” with itself. A new “language”, an RNA language, is discovered. Another 30,000 pieces of functional information (over and above proteins) are part of cell architecture. And even more for Darwinists to explain per RM+NS. And the old standard explanation, of gene duplication and pseudogenes ‘evolving’ new function, takes a hit. You’ve got to feel bad for these Darwinists. What’s tomorrow going to bring!?!
*BTW, somehow I gained access to the pdf version of the article.
