Cell differentiation

Differentiation is the process by which a cell changes to become specialised for its job.

Most of differentiation occurs as an organism develops. The cells that differentiate in mature animals are mainly used for repairing and replacing cells , such as skin or blood cells.

Specialised cells:

Sperm cells are specialised for reproduction, their function is to get the male DNA to the female DNA. It has a long tail and a streamlined head to be able to swim to the egg. Has lots of mitochondria which provide the cell with lots of energy.

Nerve cells  are specialised
