Pre-Genes and Epi-genes
Majid Ali, M.D.
Nature could not have sprung genes out of
nothing. That would not have been an evolutionary
path. To underscore my broader perspective, I
introduced the term "pre-gene" in my a chapter
entitled Complementarity and Contrariety in
Genetics" in my book entitled "Nature's
Preoccupation With Complementarity and Contrariety,"
the first volume of my 12-volume The Principles and
Practice of Integrative Medicine Volume I: Nature's
Preoccupation With Complementarity and Contrariety.
My purpose was to focus on all molecular species
that precede the development and functionalities of
genes. I introduced the term epigene for all
molecular entities that activate suppress, or in
others wars influence the behavior of genes.
For additional information on how pro-genes and epi-genes
regulate the behavior of genes, I refer professional
readers to my article entitled "The Cancerization/De-cancerization
Dynamics of the Dysox Model of Cancer" published in
Townsend Letter and included at this site.
Oxygen, the Crab, and Cancer
For an in-depth discussion of these subjects, I
suggest two-volume book entitled "Oxygen, the Crab,
and Cancer," which can be downloaded from
For readers interested in cancer of breast and
prostate, I suggest my book shown before.
