Comparative Study of Plant Organism Glutamine Synthetase

Abstract

In his work, “The Origin of Life and the Origin of Enzymes,” A. I. Oparin (1) writes: “In the evolution process as a result of the natural selection numerous variants of polypeptides possessing a low catalytic activity, were discarded. Modern organisms, ranging from bacteria to animals, possess strong enzymes, the synthesis and activity of which are rigidly controlled. Modern biochemistry, however, can detect in these catalysts certain typical evolution features.”
