Question 1
1 out of 1 points Which of the following is true about “meiosis”? Select all that apply. Answers: Reproductive cells undergo meiosis
Non-germ cells are reproduced
Red blood cells undergo meiosis
Number of chromosomes reduces by half in phase one
Cell divides to produce four daughter cells
Response Feedback: Meiosis occurs only in replicating gametes or reproducing cells. In phase one, the number of chromosomes is reduced by half but the chromatid pairs remain together. In phase two, the chromatids split apart forming four daughter cells. Non-germ cells such as red blood cells or skin cells undergo mitosis.For more information on this topic, consult:Carol Mattson Porth and Glen Matfin, Pathophysiology, 8th Edition,

Question 8
1 out of 1 points Which of the following cell organelles functions similar to the digestive system in breaking and digesting old cell parts? Answers: Ribosomes
Lysosomes
Mitochondria
Plasma membrane
Response Feedback: Lysosomes, like the digestive system, break down and digest old cell parts to be destroyed or recycled. Ribosomes help synthesize proteins in the cell. Mitochondria are the cell’s power station and helps in aerobic metabolism. Plasma membrane is a semi-permeable structure that separates internal contents of a cell from external environment.For more information on this topic, consult:Carol Mattson Porth and Glen Matfin, Pathophysiology, 8th Edition, page(s) 61Carol Mattson Porth, Essentials of Pathophysiology, 2nd Edition, page(s) 4Elizabeth J.
