This one: Temperament gene inheritance:
Abstract: A temperament gene and its inheritance mechanisms have never been academically addressed. In this study we have tried to explain a genetic basis of a temperament inheritance mode; temperament is regularly inherited by the son from the mother and by the daughter from the father. Such a transmission mode corresponds to the X chromosome-linked inheritance and indicates that a temperament gene locus is on the X chromosome. Here we show that most probable temperament gene candidate is the VAMP7 gene of Xq PAR; besides its role in neuritogenesis, a relationship was proposed between the outward migration mode of the VAMP7 mediated vesicles, the female paternal temperament allele preservation in the secondary oocyte/ovum, and its transmission to the next generation. We have eliminated 113 temperament gene candidates in the distal Xq region, due to their mRNA numbers, expression in the brain and ovary, accordance to our proposed inheritance mode of a silent temperament allele, and genetic linkages.– Farzaneh Koohyanizadeh, Ali Gorgin Karaji, Sara Falahi, Alireza Rezaiemanesh, Farhad Salari In silico prediction of deleterious single nucleotide polymorphisms in human interleukin 27 (IL-27) gene Meta Gene, Volume 25, 2020, Article 100710
From Retraction Watch:
Elsevier says it is investigating how one of its journals managed to publish a paper with patently absurd assertions about the genetic inheritance of personality traits…
Erm, about that concerning peer review process. Elsevier also was the publisher of the equally risible book chapter claiming that COVID-19 came to earth on a meteorite. Why did the journal not share those concerns before these papers were published? “‘Transparently ridiculous’: Elsevier says journal shares critic’s concerns about bizarre genetics paper” at Retraction Watch
The authors are from several prestigious and less familiar institutions worldwide, including the University of Toronto, the Tianjin Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in China, the University of Melbourne, in Australia, as well as the Institute for the Study of Panspermia and Astroeconomics in Japan and the History of Chinese Science and Culture Foundation in London, England.
The corresponding author is Chandra Wickramasinghe, who has form in this area, having claimed two decades ago that flu also came from space — an idea roundly criticized as bunk. He has also claimed that SARS — an earlier coronavirus — had the same origins. Ditto.“COVID-19 arrived on a meteorite, claims Elsevier book chapter” at Retraction Watch
We admit we hadn’t heard about the Space Covids. Here’s the chapter anyway.
Hmmm. Wickramasinghe, a Hoyle associate, is usually treated more kindly. The moral of that story, we guess, is that you can say anything you want about how life originated but you can’t mess with how Covid originated.
