Template-directed LIGATION OF oligonucleotides ON hydroxy-apatite: A model for complexation in a primitive ocean

Abstract

A likely scenario for the accumulation and complexation of organic macromolecules on a prebiotic earth would have included tidepools or lakes lined with anion-exchange minerals (Schwartz and Orgel, 1985). These minerals would have adsorbed growing oligonucleotide chains and provided a site for their elongation employing a variety of plausible mechanisms. In… (More)
