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
anonymous
  • anonymous
how does the organelles evolve into eukaryotic cells then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
well do u know what a eukaryotic vs prokaryotic

no he just said to look it up and its just getting me confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok well one sec ill tell you I've havd those types of teacher 1 sec
anonymous
  • anonymous
prokaryotes lack a nucleus
anonymous
  • anonymous
as well as a cell membrane
anonymous
  • anonymous
evolve? do you know what a eukaryotic cell could be vs a prokaryotic cell is
anonymous
  • anonymous
What do u wanna know exactly?
anonymous
  • anonymous
do you want me to give you the actually question ?|
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait what grade r u in
anonymous
  • anonymous
he gave us just to look up
anonymous
  • anonymous
what grade r u in so I know if im studying the same thing as you??

o im a freshman?????????

but i might be able to help you

  • anonymous
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 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
well im pretty sure that again a plant wouldn't really need a mitochandria but let me check
anonymous
  • anonymous
because it has a chloroplast which helps it do photosynthesis
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
the plant cell is were I'm like confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
I guess it makes sense ok first do you know what the chloroplast is
anonymous
  • anonymous
hello?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
its ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
get it more now or still no?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how we support that line of theory
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Funny I just took a test on all this XD
anonymous
  • anonymous
we haven't even started the chapter and he wants to look it up
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i have no clue about his question
anonymous
  • anonymous
o ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol you did good
anonymous
  • anonymous
thx XD
anonymous
  • anonymous
did you get it tho?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i gtg in like 15 min getting late school starts 7:20
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay thanks =}
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hey if you need help in scince I can help you its my 2nd best class well 1st right now
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait what about the animal it just store energy right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
will do wow you smart then
anonymous
  • anonymous
o the animal cell are we still talking about mitochondria rite ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
then yes it does carry the food
anonymous
  • anonymous
what function it plays in animal cell
anonymous
  • anonymous
one sec
anonymous
  • anonymous
what function mitochondria plays in animal cell
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok sorry it carries the energy making the animal living
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait did you learn about what is living
anonymous
  • anonymous
hello brb i got to go to the bathroom
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes . volve into eukaryotic cells
anonymous
  • anonymous
how does it volve into eukaryotic cells
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok back
anonymous
  • anonymous
how does what volve into eukaryotic cells
anonymous
  • anonymous
the animal cell i think is what its asking
anonymous
  • anonymous
volve? what do you mean by solve
anonymous
  • anonymous
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes please
anonymous
  • anonymous
hi
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
Ye, I see lots of confusion here, so It would be better if i start it over..
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes I'm vey confused
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
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....
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
Getting it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
isn't that what red blood cells do in our body?
anonymous
  • anonymous
what ADT?
anonymous
  • anonymous
besides the fact of carry oxygen to the lungs
anonymous
  • anonymous
ATP
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean ATP
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Red Blood cells get their energy from ATp from glucose rite?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok got ya ;)
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
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
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
So in nut shell Mitochondria is a cell organelle which is power house of the cell. It produces energy..
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay got that part
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
Ok, what's next?
anonymous
  • anonymous
we explained describing the main function Mitochondria plays in animal and plant cell
anonymous
  • anonymous
ow did these organelles evolve into eukaryotic cells? what line of evidence we have to support that theory ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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 ?
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
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....
Abhisar
  • Abhisar
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes honestly i can't believe it
anonymous
  • anonymous
wow
