Abstract Material flow equilibration, an endogenous interaction adjustment process underlying fulfillment of material flow continuity during material self-assembly, also underlies electrical excitability observed in the proteinoid microspheres as simulated models of the protocell. The spikings of the membrane potentials are attributed to a singular character of the interaction rate coefficients measuring the strengths of the coupling between basic and acidic proteinoids, in which the rates change singularly with time due to material flow equilibration.
