Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

A room and a cell are alike in that they are isolated parts of a collection. The rooms have walls which separate them from the other rooms of the house, and the cells have cell membranes (and cell walls for plant cells) which separate them from the other cells in the tissue. However, you can take the analogy a lot further if you compare the house to the cell.
The Endoplasmic Reticulum is like a hallway
The Mitochondria are like the furnace.
The nucleolus is like the teenager who has a part time job. He can't quite make enough to be on his own, but he does contribute to his own care.
The vacuole is like the the garbage bag.
The lysozome is the kitchen with an attached garage. This is where the eating goes on. It is sort of in the house, but sort of outside the house. And it allows the car with groceries into the house.
The cell wall is like the exterior walls of a house. Some houses are brick, some are wood, and the cell walls can be different densities depending on what the cell is used for.
the endoplasmic reticulum is the plumbing.
The ribosome is a home business. It produces stuff to go out and benefit the cell.
The Golgi apparatus is the coat room, or closet. It provides clothing for the cells occupants before they leave the cell.
the centrosome is like a divorce lawyer.

How are cells similar to the bricks of a building?

cells are similar by the shape and size cells are similar by the shape and size

How are prokaryotic cells similar to eukaryotic cells?

Both have DNA as their genetic material (it's DNA that tells cells what kind of cells they should be). . Both are covered by a cell membrane. . Both contain RNA. . Both are made from the same basic chemicals: carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acid, minerals, fats and vitamins. . Both have ribosomes (the structures on which proteins are made). . Both regulate the flow of the nutrients and wastes that enter and leave them. . Both have similar basic metabolism (life processes) like photosynthesis and reproduction. . Both require a supply of energy. . Both are highly regulated by elaborate sensing systems ("chemical noses") that make them aware of the reactions within them and the environment around them. That's what prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells have in common. But there are significant differences between them too. The two main differences are age and structure.(: ~~christina was here!

What are the Similarities of a house and a apartament?

One of the similarities of a house and an apartment is that theyare both homes for people to live in. They also both have the sametypes of rooms in them.

Some similarities between a house and an apartment is that they both have a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and a living area. But apartments are smaller, houses can have more rooms.

In what way are cells similar to atoms?

Atoms are the building blocks of matter while cells are the building blocks of life. Also, they both have nuclei and sub parts (protons, electrons, mitochondria, ribosomes).

How are nerve cells similar to other cells?

If you mean another eukaryotic cell of the organism, then there are many similarities as they would share many of the same organelles. They would all have Golgi apparatus, a nucleus, mitochondria, vesicles etc. However, nerve cells (depending on the type of nerve cell) may have an axon (myelinated/non myelinated), more mitochondria at the axon terminal for synaptic transmission, a large number of calcium ion channels and sodium/potassium ion pumps. Nerve cells have a very specialised function, so there would be many differences, but there are plenty of similarities to think of, just mention the organelles they share with tissue cells functions they both perform. Their characteristics are determined by the selective expression or silencing of the genes that are contained in their nucleuses.

The similarities of the sperm cells and the egg cells?

They both are reproductive cells. They both carry reproductive genetic material. They both have nuclei

How are plant cells and animals cells similar?

well they are both eukaryotic so they are very similar. However animal cells do not have a chloroplasts, while plant cells do. Also, animal cells have centrioles while plant cells do not. Another difference is that during mitosis and meiosis plant cells produce a cell plate, while animal cells produce cleavage furrow.

How are cells similar to factory or business?

They are similar because all cells and factories work together, produce things, package them, and ship them out.

How is a schwann cell similar to an oligodendrocyte?

Oligodendrocytes are glial cells that function in the CNS--the brain and spine. They provide insulation (myelin sheaths) in several locations, possibly multiple neurons. Meanwhile, schwann cells are glial cells that function in the PNS--peripheral nervous system, everything outside the brain and spine. Individually, they wrap around axons of nerves, forming individual segments of myelin sheaths. They, unlike oligodendrocytes, can guide repairs to damaged axons. Damage to the nerves in the brain are not so easily remedied.

Cell receptors and antibodies are similar?

Cell receptors and antibodies both have a specific shape requirement in order for them to work. I guess thats what makes them similar.

How is a human body similar to a house?

In one of the chapters of his book Beyond the Known (2001), Vietnamese martial artist Tri Thong Dang likens the body to a house and its parts. For instance, he says that the internal wooden frame of a house is like the human skeleton. Electrical wires are like the nerves and synapses. The water pipes are like blood vessels. The brick or siding on the outside is like skin. These are just a few examples. This is actually connected to Asian philosophy. Both Indian and Chinese cultures view the human body as a microcosm of the universe. A good example of this is the Chinese creator god Pangu. According to legend, after separating the dark and light energies of yin and yang, Pangu died. His eyes became the sun and moon, his skin dirt, his breath clouds, his blood rivers and lakes, and his skeleton mountains and rocks.

Is the skin similar to the cell membrane?

No. The cell membrane is a bi-phosphate layer which is living it is very thin creates a barrier between cellular cytoplasm and intracellular fluids allowing cells to create environments within which differ from the surrounding fluids. The skin is made of many layers of cells, and has many functions and parts including sebatious glands which secrete oil on to the surface of the skin. It is primarily a barrier to infection and loss of fluid.
