Transcriptase measurements of quantum expectations due to time-dependent coherent states populating informational DNA base-pair sites, designated by G–C → *G–*C, G–C → G′–C′, and A–T → *A–*T, provide a model for transcription and replication of time-dependent DNA lesions exhibited by bacteriophage T4. Coherent states are introduced as consequences of hydrogen bond arrangement, keto-amino → enol-imine, where product protons are shared between two sets of indistinguishable electron lone-pairs and… Expand

Evidence for transcriptase quantum processing implies entanglement and decoherence of superposition proton states
TLDR
Data imply that natural selection at the quantum level has generated effective schemes for introducing superposition proton states--at rates appropriate for DNA evolution--in decoherence-free subspaces and for creating entanglement states that augment (i) transcriptase quantum processing and (ii) efficientDecoherence for accurate Topal-Fresco replication.

A quantum mechanical model of adaptive mutation.
TLDR
The wave function describing the quantum state of the genome as being in a coherent linear superposition of states describing both the shifted and unshifted protons is considered and it is demonstrated that quantum coherence may be maintained for biological time-scales. Expand
T4 phage evolution data in terms of a time-dependent Topal-Fresco mechanism
TLDR
A physical interpretation of the Topal-Fresco model for spontaneous base substitutions suggests that hydrogen-bonded DNA protons satisfy the criteria for a classical noninteracting isolated system and criteria provide possible explanations for expansion properties of the CGG fragile X sequences. Expand
Evolutionary origin of expandable G-C-rich triplet repeat DNA sequences
TLDR
A model explaining properties exhibited by fragile-X DNA systems arises from observations that time-dependent base substitutions are expressed at G-C sites but not at A–T sites, which would not occur in slower-evolving male haploid DNA that replicates frequently. Expand

Roles of evolution, quantum mechanics and point mutations in origins of cancer
TLDR
Very good agreement between incidence of cancer data and the model is consistent with the hypothesis that duplex DNA has been evolutionarily designed to supplying an optimum rate of point mutation variation for purposes of providing the species with the ability to respond favorably to changing environmental conditions and to protect the species from adverse consequences of accumulating excessive mutations.

Heat mutagenesis in bacteriophage T 4 : The transversion pathway ( spontaneous mutation / acid mutagenesis / glycosidic bond migration
Heat induces transversions (as well as transitions) atGC base pairs in bacteriophage T4. The target base for transversions is guanine, which is converted to a product which is sometimes replicatedExpand
Heat mutagenesis in bacteriophage T4: another walk down the transversion pathway
TLDR
It is shown that heat induces G.C----T.A transversions which it is suggested may arise via a G*.A mispair, in which G* is a modified guanosine that has experienced a glycosylic bond migration. Expand
Complementary base pairing and the origin of substitution mutations
TLDR
The Watson–Crick base-pairing hypothesis is used to explain the origin, nature and level of spontaneous substitution mutations, their enhancement by base analogues, and the unique effects of certain mutator alleles. Expand
