Homeostasis 2015: Publius’ Cannabinoid Science Champions ~ New on the Bryan William Brickner Blog

Think Wilt Chamberlain

“Like Wilt Chamberlain,” opened Bryan W. Brickner, “who altered the rules of college basketball because of his contributions (talent and skill), look for bivalency and heteronomy to do the same to cannabinoid system science.”

In Homeostasis 2015: Publius’ Cannabinoid Science Champions ~ New on the Bryan William Brickner Blog, bivalency (it doubles) and heteronomy (not autonomous) are spotlighted for their contributions to future knowledge. The Publius post focuses on four 2014 PubMed articles discussing: heteromerization and CB2, unexpected (intrinsic) bivalent CS properties, and two on Orexin, involved in arousal, wakefulness and appetite, and CB1 heterodimers and heteromeric signaling complexes.

“Bivalency and heteronomy are Publius’ 2014 cannabinoid science champions,” offered Brickner, publisher of The Cannabis Papers and part of the pen name Publius; “both are CS homeostatic processes within the human body that work without notice or acclaim. Forward looking to 2015 and beyond, bivalency and heteronomy are cannabinoid science players with a high-knowledge upside.”

“One example,” Brickner noted, “is from the research on unexpected intrinsic bivalent CS properties; the researchers found small changes in bivalent cannabinoids altered the efficacy at the receptors by turning agonists into antagonists and inverse agonists, which suggests the CS can change a cannabinoid into the cannabinoid it needs.”

“The game is life,” closed Bryan W. Brickner, “and this year’s homeostatic cannabinoid champions, honored for their contributions to future knowledge, are game-changers like Chamberlain: bivalency and heteronomy.”

Announcement: In January, look for Ew Publishing’s first booklet of 2015, Bryan W. Brickner’s Shivitti: A Review of Ka-Tzetnik 135633’s Vision. The heal Auschwitz nightmares via serotonin booklet will be available by (or before) 25 January 2015.

Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several political theory books, to include Article the first of the Bill of Rights (2006) and The Book of the Is (2013); he also writes political fiction, such as the novella thereafter (2013). The Bryan William Brickner Blog is an ongoing resource for the political science of constitutions and the biological science of receptors.

The Cannabis Papers is available at online retailers and for free by download.
