We illustrate here in a form of a short review some of the work developed in our and other groups aiming at performing inside liposomes enzymatic reactions relevant for the origin of life. The work on giant vesicles will not be considered here. The long-range goal of our work with SUVs or LUVs (small unilamellar vesicles or large unilamellar vesicles) is the construction of a model minimal cell. By this we mean a cell-like system containing the minimal and sufficient number of macromolecular… CONTINUE READING
