How are bone cells and muscle cells different?
I've heard it's because of its function and it's true💯
The cells are meant to do different things. These cells band together to make tissues, which all serve different functions in the body. For example, the bone cells are meant to support your body, while your skin cells are meant to keep your insides safe from anythings outside your body, and to keep good things (water, blood, etc.) inside.
both of these cells reproduce at different rates. the bone cells, when you're fully grown, can go without dividing for about 20 years, but take around a month to go through mitosis when you're injured or growing. I don't remember about muscle cells, but I know it's less than a year. it would honestly be faster to just look it up on wikipedia or something.
Ummm... There are differnet cells that build the body. There are muscle cells that build muscle, skin cells that build skin, nerve cells that make up nerves, bone cells that make up bones, and blood cells that make up blood. There is no one cell that "builds" the body. Bodies have many different cells.
Muscle cells are formed in such a way that they contract and shorten. By doing this they produce a movement of one type or another. Skeletal muscle cells (called fibers) pull one bone towards another bone, smooth muscles fibers shorten as well but they don't act on bones. They produce waves of movement.
