Evolutionary roots of the citric acid cycle in prokaryotes.

  • Howard Gest
  • Published 1987 in Biochemical Society symposium


Advances in biochemistry, microbiology, and molecular biology suggest new approaches for exploring the early evolution of bioenergetic systems. These approaches, still in their infancy, are necessarily directed to detection of 'molecular fossils' in diverse extant prokaryotes. Since the Earth was devoid of atmospheric oxygen during early cellular evolution… (More)
