Specialized cell parts?
What way does a specialized cell in a multicellular organism differ from the cell of a unicellular organism?
A specialized cell means simply that: it has a specific job in the body. Therefore, specialized cells will contain more of the parts it needs to carry out the specialized task. A unicellular organism has only one cell, which means that it has to carry out all functions of life in a single cell. Thus, it will have all the needed parts rather than specialized parts.
Cell differentiation is when a less specialized cell changes into a more specialized cell. In multicellular organisms there are many specialized cells who get their jobs through cell specialization. Cell specialization changes a specialized cell into whatever type of cell the organism needs at the moment.
1. Cells comes from a preexisting cell by the process of mitosis an cytokinesis. Throughout development cells progressively specialize by utilizing different parts of the complete genetic instructions or genome that are present in each cell. Some genes are turned on in some cells and some genes don't. That is why a bone cell does not have the characteristics of a muscle cell. Because not all the genetical codes are turned on. Each one is…
A specialized cell is a cell that is different from the average cell e.g a red blood cell is specialized because it is doughnut shaped so oxygen can travel through them. Or another example: Guard Cells: the guard cells are on the bottom of leaves they can open and close depending on if how much water the leaf has for if it has too much water it will open and let water out but if…
