1. What are Nuc, Flag, ER, Mito, Chlora, Golgi, Ves and Lys short for ? What does each organeelles do in the cell ? Cholra stands for cholraplast which gathers energy from the sun light to create food for the cell, which is a process called photosynthesis. ER stands for Endoplasmic Reticulum the ER manufactures certain macromolecules, also it sorts and packages materials into transport vesicles. Flag stands for Flagellum, the Flag is a locomotion oraganelle composed of microtubes. Mito is short for Mitochondrion, this is where the celluar respiration takes place and most of the cells ATP. Nuc is short for Nuclus or Nucleous , the is used to produce ribosomes.Golgi stands for Golgi apparatus this organelle is in controlling the modification, sorting, and secreation of cell products. Lys is short for Lysosomes , this is the digestive organelle where the macromolecules are hydrolyzed. Ves is short for Vessicals. 2. What is and autogenic hypothesis of the origin of the eukaryotic cell? The autogenic hypothesis of the origin of the eukaryotic cell is that the eukaryotic presxsisted as a prokaryotic cell. 3. What is the evidence that supports the autogenic hypothesis? A process called membrane folding, which folded and created the eukaryotic cell , that explains why the different parts of the eurkayotic cell has double...
