  • Prokaryotes and eukaryotes - 388 Words
    Introduction The Cell Theory Cell is the basic unit of life. All complex organisms, including plants and animals are multicellular, made of numerous cells. These cells are cooperative and could not survive for long on their own. Thus, these cells are arranged into higher level of organization, forming tissues, and then forming organs, so that they can perform their specific function. In 1838 and 1839, Theodore Schwann enunciate The cell theory, said that, all living things are composed of...

  • Origin of Eukaryotes Bio 108
    Origin of Eukaryotes * The origin of eukaryotes is important to understand the origin of modern complex cells. There are three main separate theories that hypothesize the origins: the three-domain system, eocyte theory, and endosymbiosis. Each one have there own merits and evidence supporting. These theories suggest the evolution of cells from the most primitive prokaryotes, unicellular organism having cells lacking membrane-bound nuclei, to the most complex eukaryotes, single or...

  • Prokaryotes vs. Eukaryotes - 467 Words
    In prokaryotes, it’s easier to make DNA replication because of the lack of a nucleus, but to do DNA replication in a eukaryotic cell is more difficult. DNA of an eukaryotic cell is in chromatin form to fit into the small nucleus for the replication to occur, first the DNA should open. This is because it is harder for eukaryotes to carry out DNA synthesis. Replication of DNA in a prokaryote is different from a eukaryote. In a prokaryote they have a single origin where the replication process...

  • Discuss the similarities and differences between prokaryote and eukaryote cells.
    The cell is the basic functioning unit of organisms in which chemical reactions take place. These reactions involve an energy release needed to support life and build structures. The cell consists of membrane bound organelles, which are responsible for the division of labour. There are two main classes of cells- Prokaryotes which are cells without a nucleus, where the DNA is spread around the cytoplasm of the cell, an example of a prokaryote is a bacterium (See Figure 1). The other class is the...

  • Mitosis and Meiosis - 288 Words
    Mitosis and meiosis are processes that results in new cells that arise from one original cell. The purpose of mitosis is to increase cell number and this occurs by DNA replication by the original diploid (2 sets of chromosomes=2n) cell, which is then split into two cells. Each cell has equal amount of DNA and cellular organelles. Mitosis is necessary for multiple reasons in multi-cellular organisms. One example is that mitosis is essential for maintaining tissues, as cells naturally die or can...

Most cells divide at least once during their life cycle and some divide divide dozens of time times before they die. There are three types of cell division. They are binary fission, mitosis, and meiosis. When cell division is...

In this essay, I will compare and contrast the processes of mitosis and meiosis, and also, discuss the roles and significance of mitosis and meiosis in the life of flowering plants and mammals. Mitosis is the...

  • Observing Protists Through Hay Infusion Preparation
    Observing Protists through Hay Infusion Preparation Abstract: Protists are known to be the very first eukaryotic organisms on earth. The Kingdom Protista was first classified by Haeckel in the year 1866. Now, there are many known species of protists. After learning about protists in class, the group decided to observe the different species of protists found in pond water. The group prepared a preparation to be able to culture the protists until it was time to view them. After a few days,...

    Introduction It was discovered in 1858, by Rudolf Virchow, that new cells can only arise from previously existing cells. This is done in two ways: mitosis and meiosis. Somatic (body) cells divide exclusively by mitosis followed by cytokinesis, while germ cells produce gametes by the process of meiosis. Plant cells grow by enlargement, essentially by taking up water. When they reach a certain size, they divide, forming two identical daughter cells. The various parts of the cell are divided...

    The endosymbiotic hypothesis is developed by Margulis; this hypothesis proposes an explanation for the evolutionary origin of organelles (mitochondria and chloroplast) in eukaryotic cells. This hypothesis tells us that these organelles were once free living prokaryotes that got engulfed by anaerobic bacteria that could not live in an aerobic environment, due to the oxygen that was release by these photosynthetic bacteria. The prokaryotes carried out their metabolic functions where in some cases;...

    THE ENDOSYMBIOSIS HYPOTHESIS: Evaluation of the Evidence The modern version of the endosymbiosis hypothesis was developed and promoted by Dr. Lynn Margulis in 1970. The term endosymbiosis comes from “endo” meaning “within,” and symbiosis which occurs when two different species benefit from living and working together (Genetic Science Learning Center). This theory proposes that the organelles of eukaryotic cells, specifically the mitochondria and chloroplasts, were once free-floating...
