We consider how permselectivity as a function of the membrane is related to the cell evolution with an abstract proto-cell model. We construct an autopoietic proto-cell model having primitive auto-catalytic reaction cycle inside. In this model, several primitive membrane substances are assumed to be produced from the reaction cycle and the membrane is… CONTINUE READING
