  • Different Types Of Stem Cells

    STEM CELLS Stem cells are very homogenous due to the fact that they are of the same family type or lineage characteristically speaking. They are differentiated from other cells by two features. The first feature is that they are able to divide by cell division and the second feature is that under specific experimental conditions they can be directed to become tissue cells with certain functions. Stem cells are able to transform or regenerate themselves growing into the body’s approximately 200 different cell types. Most of the time stem cells would regenerate into the specific cell of the tissue the stem cell is situated although they are still able to take the form of any type of cell. This occurs only under specific conditions. Stem cells…

  • Three Types Of Glial Cells And Neurons

    Neurons are not the only cells that occupied the central nervous system (CNS). In fact, neurons are outnumbered by supportive non-excitable cells, collectively called neuroglia (a.k.a. glia). The term glia was coined by Rudolph Virchow in 1859 to indicate the “connective tissue” surrounding the neurons (glia came from Greek meaning glue). However, the combination of the activities of glial cells and neurons is crucial for brain functions (Steward 2000). There are three types of glial cells in…

  • Different Types Of Embryonic Stem Cells

    three main types of stem cells, it appears that each have their own purposes and advantages in different types of situations. Embryonic stem cells can be used in a wide variety of treatments, and they excel because of their ability to transform into any other type of cell. Because they can change into any type of cell, they can be used to repair specific parts of the body that other stem cells cannot. They are the master key to the body, but if placed in the body undifferentiated, they can…

  • Meiosis And Miosis: The Three Types Of Cell Division

    We know that all living things need to make cells to survive. Old cells die and need to be replaced. In order for living things to continue to grow, cells are constantly being made. OpenStax states that the process of new cells being made is called cell division (2013). There are three types of cell division and those are binary fission, mitosis, and meiosis. Binary fission is a quick and simple process involving replication, elongation, separation, and daughter cells. Meiosis and mitosis are…

  • Granulocytic Differentiation Of HL-60 Cells

    HL-60 cells were derived from the blood cell of a patient with acute promyelocytic leukemia, which proliferates continuously. They are immortal cells, until they induce differentiation using chemical reagents such as retinoic acid. After differentiation, they are no longer immortal. Retinoic acid is derived from Vitamin A, and can induce granulocytes. We are going to test whether exposure of longer time to retinoic acid will induce greater percent of granulocytic differentiation. To test…

  • The Rh Factor Essay

    The Rh factor The Rh factor types were discovered in 1940 by alexander wiener and Karl Landsteiner . Rh blood group is the most complex genetic of all blood type system, because it hooks 45 different surface antigen on the surface of the red cells that are controlled by two closely linked genes on chromosome 1. The antiserum for blood sample was the outcome results of the research that was done on the rhesus monkeys which lead to the naming of the Rh system. (Oneil, 31-07-2015) The RH factor…

  • Onion Cell Experiment

    Animal and Plant Cells INTRODUCTION: Scientists have developed classification units among livings. One of this classification types is kingdoms. It represents widely covered societies, including Animalia and Plantae. It is known that all livings are composed of cells, from the cell theory, so animals and plants also have a cell association. The cellular structures of animal and plants cells are clearly different. These structural differences will be rediscovered through this experiment. It is…

  • Faap Biology Unit 7 Lab Report

    An osmotic problem Paramecium faces is that excess water enters the cell because it is hypotonic to its environment. As a result, they need to use contractile vacuoles to get rid of excess water in the cell, enabling it to osmoregulate. Compare the ideal osmotic environment for animal cells and plant cells The ideal osmotic environment for animal cells would be if it were isotonic, meaning the cell and the environment have the same concentration of solutes and water, so the cell won’t change.…

  • Essay On Prokaryotic And Eukaryotic Cells

    I. The most basic unit of life is the cell. All living things are composed of cells. Cells may only from through a process of division and replication of previously existing cells. Cells are microscopic; however their structure is complex. All types of cells possess a plasma membrane which separates its contents from its surroundings. . There are two types of cells: prokaryotic and eukaryotic. a. Prokaryotic cells are simpler than eukaryotic cells. Within prokaryotic cells are bacteria cells…

  • Pyramidal CA1 Neurons

    Neurons are only a subset of the billions of cells in our brain, but they are the powerhouse driving everything we do. Common genetic and cellular properties define them as neurons. Beyond these defining features, neurons are heterogeneous in there gene expression, shape, and role in driving behavior (cite Zeisel et al. 2015 and Kamme et al 2003). Even within very homogenous populations such as the pyramidal CA1 neurons, there is significant variation in neuronal properties. This leads to…
