We have demonstrated an example of a phenomenon inside the living cell that can be modeled the same way as an RC circuit and a few analogues for electric circuits within the cell. This naturally poses the question whether the parallels for all electrical phenomena can be found within the cell, and if so, whether all the cellular processes can be represented as some form of electrical circuits. Are there phenomena inside the cell that require further basic components than in electrical engineering? We hasten to add that analogs phenomena in a physical system and in the real world are nothing new. It so happens that they are not extensively studied in biological systems.
