Some cells produce and secrete high levels of digestive proteins. which organelles would you expect to be abundant in those cells, and why?

QUESTION POSTED AT 19/08/2019 - 05:54 PM

Answered by answersmine AT 19/08/2019 - 05:54 PM

The answer is Lysosomes

Lysosomes are the organelles in charge of digesting and breaking down all matter in a cell that needs to be broken down, varying from food and energy molecules to viruses and bacteria.

What is the Mitosis cell cycle, give a description for each stage.

The four main phases of mitosis are:

Prophase- In the first half:The chromosomes start to shrink. The cytoskeleton begins to form the mitotic spindle, which will grow between the centrosomes and organize the chromosomes.The nucleolus goes away.
                  In the second half: The chromosomes become extremely compact. The nuclear envelope disappears and all the DNA comes out. Some of the mitotic spindle starts to catch chromosomes.

Metaphase- The mitotic spindle moves all of the chromosomes across the middle of the cell.

Anaphase- The two chromatids of each chromosome are pulled apart from each other and become their own chromosomes. Loose microtubules push the ends of the cell to make it longer.

Telophase- The mitotic spindle is broken back down into microtubules. Two new nuclei appear (one for each new cell). The chromosomes return to their normal form (not all squished down).

Another big step is cytokinesis, which starts either during Anaphase, or Telophase. In animal cells, the cell is pinched around the middle to create the two new cells. In plant cells, a cell plate comes into the middle of the cell and separates it into the two new cells.

The main four steps can be remembered using the acronym PMAT.

Can a cell live without a cell membrane or Chloroplast ?

No bc Mitochondria are rod-shaped organelles that can be considered the power generators of the cell, converting oxygen and nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the chemical energy "currency" of the cell that powers the cell's metabolic activities. This process is called aerobic respiration and is the reason animals breathe oxygen. Without mitochondria (singular, mitochondrion), higher animals would likely not exist because their cells would only be able to obtain energy from anaerobic respiration (in the absence of oxygen), a process much less efficient than aerobic respiration. In fact, mitochondria enable cells to produce 15 times more ATP than they could otherwise, and complex animals, like humans, need large amounts of energy in order to survive.

True or False: If the prefix "iso" means the same, there is no change in the cell (egg).

Answer:

True

Explanation:

We are given that the prefix ''iso'' means the same .

Iso mean  equal , there is no change in the cell .

For example iso-gametes

It means the gametes are same .All gametes are same and are not different with each other.

Isomer : It means that the compound which have same molecular formula but different structural formula .

Therefore, we can say that iso mean same or equal or identical or  like or similar .

Hence, the given statement is true.

In what way are heterotrophs dependent on photosynthesis by autotrophs (explain at a 6th grade level)

Plants are referred to as autotrophs. Auto– means "self," and in this case, –troph means "feeding." Autotrophs are those organisms that make their own food. All plants are autotrophs, and so are algae and many bacteria. Organisms that are unable to produce glucose through photosynthesis are called heterotrophs. Heterotrophs obtain organic food molecules for energy and nutrition by eating other organisms or by eating and absorbing by-products of other organisms.
