Beginning of Life on Planets

  •  Abdul L. Bhuiyan    


Beginning of life on a planet including earth would occur with the formation of nucleotides from such precursors as linear polyphosphate anion, D-ribose, and heterocyclic bases in presence of metasilicate anion of composition (SiO32-)n, metaborate anion of composition (BO2)nn-, and enstatite (MgSiO3). These complex silicates and borates might have acted as catalysts as well as moulds for the production of the nucleotides of DNA/RNA.
