Cell Adaptations and Specialisation
Living organisms start life as a zygote.
This zygote divides to make two daughter cells - these daughter cells are identical to each other and the parent cell, and both have 46 chromosomes.
As these cells continue to divide, they increase and form a group of cells (an embryo)
As the embryo develops, one of the cells may change shape and become adapted to do a specific job. This cell is then specialised.
Two examples of specialised cells found in the blood are:
