Week 2 Discussion Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Endosymbiosis
In week 2, we are focused on understanding the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells in Chapter 3 of the textbook. There are fundamental differences between the two types of cells but also similarities. An interesting concept in science is that prokaryotic cells are what gave rise to eukaryotic cells via an endosymbiotic relationship. The two primary examples of this are the mitochondria in animal cells and chloroplasts in plant cells that are very similar to bacteria.
Review the information available at Endosymbiosis and The Origin of Eukaryotes
Once you have reviewed this information, choose ONE of the topics below
Topic 1: Animal cell mitochondria
Topic 2: Plant cell chloroplasts
Research and Support your response to the following questions in your initial post in an expository manner;
If you chose animal cells, how are mitochondria replicated within eukaryotic cells?
If you chose plant cells, how are chloroplasts replicated within plant cells?
How are these processes similar to microbes?
Do endosymbotic relationships still exist today?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of such relationships?
