Transmembrane electron transport and the neutral theory of evolution

Abstract

Based on the concept of “pairs of basic functional states” the evolution of the first chemiosmotic mechanism of energy conversion is discussed in terms of point mutations, gene duplications and of the neutral theory of evolution. A model for estimating the overall probability of the evolutionary step in question is presented, both for the “selectionist” and… (More)
