Conversely, if we choose two Y molecules and then displace an X, this will give a decrease in x, with probability y 2 x. All other interactions leave the concentrations unchanged. Thus, the rate of change3 of x is given by: x˙ = x2 y − y 2 x Given that x + y = 1 (by definition), then we have: x˙ = x2 (1 − x) − (1 − x)2 x A simple insight into the behaviour is gained by plotting the expression on the right against x. This is shown in Figure 1. , reaches concentration 1). Of course, by symmetry, exactly the same is also true of y.

Suzuki Application: Clathrin-Coated Vesicular Transport To evaluate the compatibility of the extended formalism with membrane dynamics in living systems, we applied it to model the clathrin-coated vesicular transport [4, pp712–724], which has been studied well in molecular biology. Its conceptual diagram is illustrated in Fig. 6 (the transport from the Golgi body to an endosome is assumed). A simplistic explanation of the process is as follows (the actual process involves many other factors): (1) cargo receptors in the membrane of the Golgi body attach cargo molecules from the inside of the Golgi body; (2) clathrin (protein to make a coat of vesicle) attaches to the other side of receptors and forms a bud; (3) dynamin (GTPase) pinches the bud off from the membrane; (4)–(5) the clathrin coat is lost after the vesicle is released; (6) v-SNARE (transmembrane protein) on the vesicle and t-SNARE (transmembrane protein) on the surface of endosome interact to tether the vesicle to the membrane of endosome; (7) the two membranes are fused; and (8) the cargo molecules are released into the endosome.

We conclude with a brief discussion of the implications of this study. 2 Basic Template-Replicator World The basic template-replicator world consists of a finite number of strings (polymers) on a binary alphabet. The dynamics consists of a simple loop in which 2 There is, of course, a large body of prior literature on replicator selection dynamics. We omit any extensive review here, in the interests of brevity; but [8], for example, includes a comprehensive bibliography. 24 B. McMullin, C. Kelly, and D.
