In this hypothesis, the presence of H 2 represents the selective force that forged eukaryotes out of prokaryotes. The syntrophy hypothesis was developed in contrast to the hydrogen hypothesis and proposes the existence of two symbiotic events. According to this theory, the origin of eukaryotic cells was based on metabolic symbiosis syntrophy between a methanogenic archaeon and a delta-proteobacterium.
This syntrophic symbiosis was initially facilitated by H 2 transfer between different species under anaerobic environments. In earlier stages, an alpha-proteobacterium became a member of this integration, and later developed into the mitochondrion.
Gene transfer from a delta-proteobacterium to an archaeon led to the methanogenic archaeon developing into a nucleus. The archaeon constituted the genetic apparatus, while the delta-proteobacterium contributed towards the cytoplasmic features. This theory incorporates two selective forces at the time of nucleus evolution — a presence of metabolic partitioning to avoid the harmful effects of the co-existence of anabolic and catabolic cellular pathways, and b prevention of abnormal protein biosynthesis due to a vast spread of introns in the archaeal genes after acquiring the mitochondrion and losing methanogenesis.

The types of eukaryotic micro-organisms are many and broad-ranging. Clive Price, Convener of the new SGM Group set up to promote this field, describes their significance and what the group hopes to achieve. Compared with bacterial pathogens, a relatively small number of fungal species cause life-threatening infections in humans. However, these fungal infections are becoming more prevalent, they are harder to treat, and they are often diagnosed too late, as Alistair Brown explains.
The DNA in every living cell is constantly subjected to damaging events. Fiona Benson and Antony Carr describe how the integrity of genes is maintained.
