Abstract: We consider how permselectivity as a function of the membrane is related to the cell evolution with an abstract proto-cell model. We construct an autopoietic proto-cell model having primitive auto-catalytic reaction cycle inside. In this model, several primitive membrane substances are assumed to be produced from the reaction cycle and the membrane is assumed to have a permeability to specific chemical species. We show that the permselectivity of the membrane induces the diversification of the cell volume. We discuss how the diversification of the cells is related to the Darwinian evolution.
