Abstract:

One of the most exciting and enduring obscurities of biology lies in the early stages of the evolution of “our” eukaryotic cells. The endosymbiotic theory accounts well for the present existence of the mitochondrial and chloroplast organelles of eukaryotes. Although there is evidence for present-day inter-bacterial endosymbiosis, the details of the route leading to the establishment of organelles remain enigmatic.

(Left) Pablo Picasso’s Violon (Violin) 1911-12, Kröller-Müller Museum, Netherlands. Just as the audience’s image of a violin is destroyed through deconstruction within the oval frame to achieve Picasso’s art, so too may a bacterial cytoskeleton have been disrupted under the influence of archaeal-evolved factors following endosymbiosis. (Right) Chance and Necessity by Jacques Monod. Borrowing Monod’s title, the chance merging of two distinct systems for cytoskeletal regulation may, by necessity, have influenced eukaryogenesis.
