Im pretty sure that a plant would not need a mitochondria because it has chloroplast to make its food but for the human the mitochondria works to provide energy for the cell
how does the organelles evolve into eukaryotic cells then?
well do u know what a eukaryotic vs prokaryotic

no he just said to look it up and its just getting me confused
ok well one sec ill tell you I've havd those types of teacher 1 sec
prokaryotes lack a nucleus
as well as a cell membrane
evolve? do you know what a eukaryotic cell could be vs a prokaryotic cell is
What do u wanna know exactly?
do you want me to give you the actually question ?|
wait what grade r u in
he gave us just to look up
what grade r u in so I know if im studying the same thing as you??
Hello?
Hello?
sophomore
o im a freshman?????????
but i might be able to help you
wait so what is your question
okay do you want me to give you the full question
yes please
Describe the main function that a mitochondria pays in animal and plant cells. how did these organelles evolve into eukaryotic cells? what line of evidence we have to support that theory ?
well im pretty sure that again a plant wouldn't really need a mitochandria but let me check
because it has a chloroplast which helps it do photosynthesis
ok mitochondria in a plant cells purpose is to produce the energy currency of the cell and for human it is the "power house of the cell" and it works to provide energy for the cell
the plant cell is were I'm like confused
I guess it makes sense ok first do you know what the chloroplast is
hello?
sorry I'm doing other hw at the same time
Plant cell,mitochondria function:They are organelles that act like a digestive system which takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy rich molecules for the cell.
its ok
get it more now or still no?
so how we support that line of theory
well judging for evolution it is not exactly a theory and scientist have most likely done test to see what are the effects of a plant with a mitochondria vs one with out one
Funny I just took a test on all this XD
we haven't even started the chapter and he wants to look it up
so i have no clue about his question
o ok
lol you did good
thx XD
did you get it tho?
i gtg in like 15 min getting late school starts 7:20
oh okay thanks =}
Hey if you need help in scince I can help you its my 2nd best class well 1st right now
wait what about the animal it just store energy right?
will do wow you smart then
o the animal cell are we still talking about mitochondria rite ?
yes correct
then yes it does carry the food
what function it plays in animal cell
one sec
what function mitochondria plays in animal cell
Ok sorry it carries the energy making the animal living
wait did you learn about what is living
hello brb i got to go to the bathroom
yes . volve into eukaryotic cells
how does it volve into eukaryotic cells
ok
ok back
how does what volve into eukaryotic cells
the animal cell i think is what its asking
volve? what do you mean by solve
i think what its asking is how does the animals invoke into a eukaryotic cells
Hello all!! So what you need help on ayleen? Should I start it from beginning?
yes please
hi
Ye, I see lots of confusion here, so It would be better if i start it over..
yes I'm vey confused
Ok, So first of all what is mitochondria? It's basically a cellular organelle responsible for energy production in the forms of ATP. Both plants and animals have it and they need it. I agree that plants produce energy from sunlight but that is stored in the form of glucose. Plants still need mitochondria to convert that glucose into ATP when energy is needed....
Getting it?
isn't that what red blood cells do in our body?
what ADT?
besides the fact of carry oxygen to the lungs
ATP
i mean ATP
Red blood cell carries glucose in our body to different cells. It's mitochondria which takes up that glucose and breaks it into energy in the form of ATP
Red Blood cells get their energy from ATp from glucose rite?
ok got ya ;)
Ayleen, ATP = Adenosine triphosphate molecules. these are simply enrgy currency of our body.....If you are not sure about it just remember that ATP is equivalent to energy
So in nut shell Mitochondria is a cell organelle which is power house of the cell. It produces energy..
okay got that part
Ok, what's next?
we explained describing the main function Mitochondria plays in animal and plant cell
ow did these organelles evolve into eukaryotic cells? what line of evidence we have to support that theory ?
okay this is the question my teacher ask Describe the main function that a mitochondria plays in animal and plant cells. how did these organelles evolve into eukaryotic cells? what line of evidence we have to support that theory ?
Good, so we just saw what is the role of Mitochondria. We know now that is is basically power house of a cell. Now let's see how it evolved.... There are some explanations about it but the most widely accepted one is the `Endosymbiotic theory` . According to it mitochondria was once a prokaryortic bacteria which some how entered in our cells and established an endosymbiotic relationship i.e. basically give and take kind of relationship....
Now what are the evidences which support this theory??? You can't just believe what I say ..Can yo ...?? When further investigations wr done...scientists found that the genetic material found inside the mitochondria is very similar to prokaryotic bacteria. This is a strong eveidence which supports our hypothesis.
yes honestly i can't believe it
wow
But that's true doe c:
