On Some Problems of Evolution of the Photosynthetic Pigment Apparatus

  • V. B. Evstigneev

Abstract

According to the theory of origin and evolution of life on the Earth, first proposed and developed by A. I. Oparin (1–4), at a certain period of the evolution some organisms in their struggle for existence were forced to evolve such metabolic pathways, which not only permitted them to assimilate external (exogenous) organic substances in a more effective way but also gave them the possibility of utilizing other means of extracting energy from the environment and of assimilating the simplest forms of carbon-containing compounds.
