To date the manner in which information reaches the nucleus on that part within the three-dimensional structure where specific restorative processes of structural components of the cell are required is unknown. The soluble signalling molecules generated in the course of destructive and restorative processes communicate only as needed.


All molecules show temperature-dependent molecular vibration creating a radiation in the infrared region. Each molecule species has in its turn a specific frequency pattern under given specific conditions. Changes in their structural composition result in modified frequency patterns of the molecules in question. The main structural elements of the cell membrane, of the endoplasmic reticulum, of the Golgi apparatus, and of the different microsomes representing the great variety of polar lipids show characteristic frequency patterns with peaks in the region characterised by low water absorption. These structural elements are very dynamic, mainly caused by the creation of signal molecules and transport containers. By means of the characteristic radiation, the area where repair or substitution services are needed could be identified; this spatial information complements the signalling of the soluble signal molecules. Based on their resonance properties receptors located on the outer leaflet of the nuclear envelope should be able to read typical frequencies and pass them into the nucleus. Clearly this physical signalling must be blocked by the cell membrane to obviate the flow of information into adjacent cells.


If the hypothesis can be proved experimentally, it should be possible to identify and verify characteristic infrared frequency patterns. The application of these signal frequencies onto cells would open entirely new possibilities in medicine and all biological disciplines specifically to influence cell growth and metabolism. Similar to this intracellular system, an extracellular signalling system with many new therapeutic options has to be discussed.

Keywords: Infrared radiation, intracellular signalling, molecular vibration, membrane, nuclear envelope, polar lipids.

"We have always had a fruitful cooperation and long-term experience of publishing with Bentham Open."

"A number of our original papers have appeared in its different journals, as the Bentham Open Publishers provides sufficient research in the field of science and technologies (belonging to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, biomedical industries etc). The staff of the Bentham Open always treat our papers very seriously and gently during the rutile paper reviewing process, so far we always felt their kindness and highly cooperative support. Today, Bentham Open is providing a great support to science and research, giving opportunities of high standard publishing as well as promoting and enhancing selected papers around the world through communication and exchange of global scientific education."
