Increasing the initial concentration of compound 1 results in faster formation of 3, whereas the destruction rate is unchanged, increasing the concentration of 3 throughout the experiment. All experiments show an initial period of autocatalytic growth (see insert), followed by a period of constant [3] and finally destruction of the assembler. Concentrations were determined using UPLC, whereas error bars represent the standard deviation. Source data are provided as a Source Data file.
