The work of Robert Rosen, related to metabolic networks called (MR) systems is reviewed and clarified. We study the algebraic formulation of (M,R) systems particularly the mapping β, which encapsulates Rosen's solution to the problem of metabolic closure and infinite regress. We construct an arithmetical example of an (MR) system and also an (MR) system based on a three-step minimal metabolism.
