Oparin y Haldane: la Teoría del Caldo Primordial.

Primordial soupor prebiotic soup also sometimes referred as prebiotic brothis the hypothetical set of conditions present on the Earth around 4. It is a fundamental aspect to the heterotrophic theory of the origin of lifefirst proposed by Alexander Oparin and John Burdon Sanderson Haldane in the s. The notion that living beings originated from inanimate materials comes from the Ancient Greeks—the theory known as spontaneous generation.

Aristotle in the 4th century BCE gave a proper explanation, writing:. So with animals, some spring from parent animals according to their kind, whilst others grow spontaneously and not from kindred stock; and of these instances of spontaneous generation some come from putrefying earth or vegetable matter, as is the case with a number of insects, while others are spontaneously generated in the inside of animals out of the secretions of their several organs [3].

Aristotle also states that it is not only that animals originate from other similar animals, but also that living things do arise and always have arisen from lifeless matter.

His theory remained the dominant idea on origin of life from the ancient philosophers to the Renaissance thinkers in various forms.

Italian physician Francesco Redi demonstrated in that maggots developed from rotten meat only in a jar where flies could enter, but not in closed-lid jar. The experiment of French chemist Louis Pasteur in is regarded as the death blow to spontaneous generation.

He experimentally showed that organisms microbes can not grow in a sterilised water, unless it is exposed to air. The experiment won him the Alhumbert Prize in from the French Academy of Sciencesand he concluded: Never will the doctrine of spontaneous generation recover from the mortal blow of this simple experiment.

Evolutionary biologists believed that a kind of spontaneous generation, but different from the simple Aristotelian doctrine, must have worked for the emergence of life. French biologist Jean-Baptiste de Lamarck had speculated that the first life form started from non-living materials. When English naturalist Charles Darwin introduced the theory of natural selection in his book On the Origin of Species inhis supporters, such as a German zoologist Ernst Haeckelcriticised him for not using his theory to explain the origin of life.


Experimento de Oparin

Haeckel wrote in When Darwin assumes a special creative act for this first species, he is not consistent, and, I think, not quite sincere. Although Darwin did not speak explicitly about the origin of life in On the Origin of Specieshe did mention a ” warm little pond ” in a letter to Joseph Dalton Hooker oparln February 1, [9]. It is often said that all the conditions for the first production of a living being are now present, which could ever have been present.

But if and oh what a big if we could conceive in some warm little pond with all sort of ammonia and phosphoric salts,—light, heat, electricity present, that a protein compound was chemically formed, ready to undergo still more complex changes, at the present such matter would be instantly devoured, or absorbed, which would not have been the case ccaldo living creatures were formed [ A coherent scientific argument was introduced by a Soviet biochemist Alexander Oparin in According to Oparin, in the primitive Earth’s surface, carbon, hydrogen, water vapour, and ammonia reacted to form the first organic compounds.

Unbeknownst to Oparin, whose writing was circulated only in Russian, an English scientist John Burdon Sanderson Haldane independently arrived at similar conclusion in It was Haldane who first used the term ” soup ” to describe the accumulation of organic material and water in caldp primitive Earth [2] [7].

When ultra-violet light acts on a mixture of water, carbon dioxide, and ammonia, a vast variety of organic substances are made, including sugars and apparently some of the materials from which proteins are built up. Today the theory is lparin known as the ” Heterotrophic origin of life theory ” or the “Oparin-Haldane hypothesis” [10] Biochemist Robert Shapiro has summarized the basic points of the theory in its “mature form” as follows: This nucleus was surrounded by lightest elements, i.

In the presence of water vapour, carbides reacted with hydrogen to form hydrocarbons. Such hydrocarbons were the first organic molecules.

These further combined with oxygen and ammonia to produce hydroxy- and amino-derivatives, such as carbohydrates and proteins. These molecules accumulated on the ocean’s surface, becoming gel-like substances and growing in size.

They gave rise to primitive organisms cellswhich he called coacervates. However, when he elaborated his theory in in a book by the same title, and translated into English inhe modified the chemical composition of the primordial environment as strictly reducing, consisting of methane, ammonia, free hydrogen and water vapour—excluding oxygen.


Haldane independently postulated his primordial soup theory in in an eight-page article “The origin of life” in The Rationalist Annual. Ultraviolet rays from the Sun induced priimitivo on a mixture of water, carbon dioxide, and ammonia.

Organic substances such as sugars and protein components amino acids were synthesised. These molecules “accumulated till the primitive oceans reached the consistency of hot dilute soup.

As to the priority over the theory, Haldane accepted that Oparin came first, saying, “I have very little doubt that Professor Oparin has the priority over me. One of the most important pieces of experimental support for the “soup” theory came in A graduate student, Stanley Millerand his professor, Harold Ureyperformed an experiment that demonstrated how organic molecules could have spontaneously formed from inorganic precursors, under conditions like those posited by the Oparin-Haldane Hypothesis.

The now-famous ” Miller—Urey experiment ” used a highly reduced mixture of gases— methane xaldo, ammonia and hydrogen —to form basic organic monomerssuch as amino acids. The spontaneous formation of complex polymers from abiotically generated monomers under the conditions posited by the “soup” theory is not at calvo a straightforward process.
