Description

Life is an out of equilibrium system sustained by a continuous supply of energy. In extant biology, the generation of adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) and its use in the synthesis of biomolecules requires sophisticated enzymes. Before the emergence of such enzymes, alternative energy sources, perhaps assisted by simple catalysts, must have mediated the formation, activation and joining prebiotic building blocks.
