For example, a coacervate drop formed from protein, gum arabic and phosphorylase is immersed in a solution of glucose-1-phosphate. Glucose-1-phosphate begins to enter the drop and polymerizes in it into starch under the action of a catalyst – phosphorylase. The processes that occur and the coacervate drop are shown in square brackets, and outside of them are substances that are in the external and the environment:
glucose-1-phosphate -> [glucose-1-phosphate -> starch -> maltose] -> maltose.
Due to the formed starch, the drop grows, which can easily be established both by chemical analysis and direct microscopic measurements. If another catalyst, b-amylase, is included in the drop, the starch decomposes to maltose, which is released into the external environment.
Thus, a simple metabolism occurs. The substance enters a drop, polymerizes, causing the growth of the system. And with the decay of substances, the products of this process go into the external environment, where they previously were not.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
