ABIOGENIC INFORMATION COUPLING BETWEEN NUCLEIC ACID AND PROTEIN,OR, HOW PROTEIN AND DNA WERE MARRIED

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

There is now experimental evidence for selectivity between the amino acid and the nucleic acid base which is the beginning of the chemical translation process from one linear system to the other. The linear system of the nucleic acid is, of course, an excellent place to store the information, whereas the linear system of the polypeptide, on the other hand, is the versatile system which can perform many different types of reactions but is unable to store information reliably. The experiments the author has described here may represent the beginning of the method of coupling of those two essential qualities ... continued below
