lots of things can trigger the cell to die such as singles from inside the cell telling it that it's getting "old" (the telomeres of the cell can become too short for it to replicate) also in the situation of an infection the cell has lots of mechanisms to trigger itsself to die so that it...

proteins that are destined for the surface of the cell are translated in the rough ER and in that process they are stuck in between pieces of cell membrane. The "pieces" of cell membrane then fuse with the cell membrane so they don't have to get processed by the golgi at all. For cellular ...

there is a process called apoptosis that when the cell is ready to die it starts packaging itsself into little bits called "blebs" the blebs are then "swallowed" by immune cells called phagocytes that break down the blebs into parts and reuse them. Cells on the epithelium (outer ...

Re: Re:

I think, that mammals are here exactly the same time as other now-living organisms, aren't they? At least in the form of their ancestors. Or always, when someone evolves into new species, he loses all the mess in his genome?
