The voice of the Genome ­ Chapter 3.1 Animal
cells and asexual reproduction
I can distinguish between Eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells in terms of their structure and ultrastructure:
Living organisms are made up of cells, most of them being familiar cells ­ animals, plants, protoctists and many fungi
have cells…

nucleus contains at least one nucleolus ­ an extra dense area of almost pure DNA and protein. The nucleolus is
involved in the production of ribosomes, cell growth and division.

Lysosome ­ the function of these organelles are to break down any of the organelles that have been worn out.…

The lungs - example of an animal organ, made up of the following tissues
1. Squamous epithelial tissue ­ surrounds the alveoli (gaseous exchange occurrence)
2. Fibrous connective tissue ­ helps force air back out of the lungs when exhaling
3. Blood vessels ­ capillaries surround the alveoli

Organs are…

Prophase ­ The chromosomes condense, getting shorter and fatter. The centrioles start moving to opposite ends of
the cell, forming a network of protein fibres across it called the spindle. The nuclear envelope breaks down and
chromosomes lie free in the cytoplasm. As mitosis begins, the chromosomes are made of…

Telophase ­ The chromatids reach the opposite poles on the spindle. They uncoil and become long and thin again.
They're now called chromosomes again. A nuclear envelope forms around each group of chromosomes so now there
are two nuclei and centrioles reform.

Cytokinesis - The cytoplasm divides and there are…
