The photochemistry of biogenic gases in the early and present atmosphere


, : The photochemistry of biogenic gases in the early and present atmosphere. Origins of Life and Evolution of the Biosphere 15: 299-318

A photochemical model of biogenic gases in the paleoatmosphere is presented. Gases used include methane, ammonia, and hydrogen sulfide. Background atmospheric composition included nitrogen, water vapor, carbon dioxide, molecular hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. Thermodynamic equilibrium calculations are reviewed for methane, ammonia, carbon monoxide, and nitrous oxide. The photochemistry of hydrogen sulfide is reviewed. It is concluded that presence of methane, ammonia, and hydrogen sulfide in the prebiological atmosphere was very short-lived and in small amounts.

Connexins are a family of transmembrane proteins that form gap junction channels. These proteins undergo both proteasomal and lysosomal degradation, mechanisms that serve to regulate connexin levels. Our previous work described CIP75 [connexin43 (...
