What would be an analogy for chloroplasts?
Chloroplasts are like solar panels because chloroplasts convert the sun’s energy into energy that can be used by cells like solar panels convert the sun’s energy into energy that can be used by a house.
What is an analogy for mitochondria?
An analogy for mitochondria is that the mitochondria is like a power plant, because they both produce energy.
What is an analogy for organelles?
Below are some suggested analogies for city structures….
|Cell Organelles||City Analogies|
|Endoplasmic Reticulum||Highway or road system|
|Ribosomes||Lumber or brick yard|
|Golgi Bodies||Post Office or UPS|
What is a real life example of chloroplast?
A real life example of a chloroplast would be solar panels. Solar panels are used in a variety of products these days, from phone charges, lawn…
What can you compare mitochondria to?
I like your analogy! Usually, mitochondria are compared to power plants. They are the power plants of the cell because they generate most of the cell’s ATP energy, adenosine triphophsate. Mitochondria are also used for signaling, cellular differentiation, cell growth and cell death.
Whats a good analogy for a cell?
Cell Analogy Project Ideas
- Cells are Like Schools. The hard exterior of a school building keeps it standing like a cell wall does in a plant cell.
- Cells are Like Cities.
- Cells are Like Cars.
- Cells are Like Zoos.
How are plastids passed from one parent to another?
There are many plants which are inherited from the plastids from just a single parent. Angiosperms inherit plastids from the female gamete while there are many gymnosperms that inherit plastids from the male pollen. Algae inherit plastids from one parent only. The inheritance of the plastids-DNA seems to be 100% uniparental.
How are the different types of plastids classified?
There are different types of plastids with their specialized functions. Among them, a few are mainly classified based on the presence or absence of the Biological pigments and their stages of development.
What is the role of plastids in photosynthesis?
Plastids are responsible for photosynthesis, storage of products like starch, and for the synthesis of many classes of molecules such as fatty acids and terpenes, which are needed as cellular building blocks and/or for the function of the plant.
How are plastids inherited in algae and angiosperms?
Angiosperms inherit plastids from the female gamete while there are many gymnosperms that inherit plastids from the male pollen. Algae inherit plastids from one parent only. The inheritance of the plastids-DNA seems to be 100% uniparental. In hybridisation, the inheritance of plastid seems to be more erratic.
