protocell that can self-proliferate
http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2015/150929...s9352.html



Quote:Self-organized lipid structures (protocells) have been proposed as an intermediate between nonliving material and cellular life. Synthetic production of model protocells can demonstrate the potential processes by which living cells first arose. While we have previously described a giant vesicle (GV)-based model protocell in which amplification of DNA was linked to self-reproduction, the ability of a protocell to recursively self-proliferate for multiple generations has not been demonstrated. Here we show that newborn daughter GVs can be restored to the status of their parental GVs by pH-induced vesicular fusion of daughter GVs with conveyer GVs filled with depleted substrates. We describe a primitive model cell cycle comprising four discrete phases (ingestion, replication, maturity and division), each of which is selectively activated by a specific external stimulus. The production of recursive self-proliferating model protocells represents a step towards eventual production of model protocells that are able to mimic evolution.

Brick RE: protocell that can self-proliferate
Is this just confirming what we already know that reproduction started asexually? How the hell else could it have started?

Heywood logic: Aha! An intelligent mind has finally reproduced something that happens billions of times a day in nature. That means it was definitely intelligently designed to start with!

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I haven't read the article. Too tired right now too. However if it is describing something that never has been observed to happen except with the help of intellect....it is a pretty good bet that it only happens with the help of intellect.

That 'logic' has been refuted more than once, yet you keep at it. You're an idiot. Drinking Beverage

Yet another piece of the puzzle of abiogenesis falls into place.
