All users of these materials and visitors to this The rna world gesteland site are expected to abide by these restrictions. In the presence of a complementary template somewhat larger oligomers might be formed because the free energy of hybridization would help to drive forward the chain extension reaction.
In a different approach to the activation of nucleotides, the isolation of an activated intermediate is avoided by using a condensing agent such as a carbodiimide Khorana This is a popular method in organic synthesis, but its application to prebiotic chemistry is problematic.
Potentially prebiotic molecules such as cyanamide and cyanoacetylene activate nucleotides in aqueous solution, but the subsequent condensation reactions are inefficient Lohrmann and Orgel The second RNA world is that of today's biological systems, where RNA plays active roles in catalyzing biochemical reactions, in translating mRNA into proteins, in regulating gene expression, and in the constant battle between infectious agents the rna world gesteland to subvert host defense systems and host cells protecting themselves from infection.
This second RNA world is not at all hypothetical, and although we do not have all the answers about how it works, we have the tools to continue our interrogation of the rna world gesteland world and refine our understanding.
