Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • The line depicts a population of cells, sharing the characters that define Eukarya (e.g., a membrane-bound nucleus), but which did not descend from an ancestral cell in (2) or (1).

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • In other words, the taxonomic character "possesses a membrane-bound nucleus" does not define a clade whose first representative was a discrete cell.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • So, at the Darwinian threshold for Eukarya, you infer a population of n entities, unrelated by common ancestry (vertical descent) from an earlier cell, but sharing the characters that define Eukarya, such as a membrane-bound nucleus.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • Protists are eukaryotic, possessing a membrane-bound nucleus, but are single-celled or acellular organisms.

    Marine microbes

  • After the neurotransmitter diffuses across the synaptic cleft it complexes with a receptor (membrane-bound macromolecule) on the post-synaptic side.


  • And "Rock's DNA World" has no problems with membrane-bound systems or homeostasis, since the DNA-World Hypothesis accepts the "facts-of-life" as related in any basic biology textbook.

    A Minimal Genome

  • These hydrogen ions, in turn, drive the production of ATP with the aid of a membrane-bound enzyme called ATP synthase.

  • As mentioned above, ATP synthase (Fig. 1) consists of a membrane-bound part, F o, which transports hydrogen ions, and a protruding part (F 1) which can be released from the membrane.

    Press Release: The 1997 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

  • In all types of photosynthesis, the light energy absorbed by chlorophyll is transferred to membrane-bound protein-pigment complexes, known as reaction centers.

    The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1988

  • The resulting pH gradient is utilized by another membrane-bound protein, ATPase, to synthesize ATP, a compound used as a fuel in energy-demanding biological processes.
