Groups of cells with the same structure and function?
Are called tissues as muscle tissue .
When a group of cells that all have the same basic structure and function come together what do they form?
False - cells can differ in structure in order to perform a specific function. For example, neurons (nerve cells) are electrically excitable. These have an axon (long section that conducts impulses, and ends which branch out - called dendrite. This is an example of a cell structure unique to a certain function.
Not always. For example the pancreas while largely made of the same type of cells performing the same function (making digestive enzymes needed in the small intestine) contains little spots called the Islets of Langerhans that are entirely different and have a totally unrelated function (making the hormone insulin needed in the blood to regulate glucose metabolism). Both types of cells are integral parts of the one organ.
If all cells had the same structure and function, it would be like every person was the same person- looks, personality and traits. If all cells were the same, living things like us humans couldn't survive since we have uncountable different types of cells that all have different functions. Every cell has a purpose and a job it does until it dies, and not every cell has the same job. Also, plant and animal cells…
As per your question, same organism ( i mean an animal or plant, or eukaryote not as prokaryotes like bacteria) All the cells were originated from the mother cell called Stem cell- Totipotent cells, From this Totipotent- various subdivision cells arise based on the function and the role of the specific organs they are termed as pluripotent, multipotent and unipotent. So based on the function and the role of its activity it needs a specific…
