Re: antibiotic overuse ???

Hi cathbr, 1) Yes they are Somatic cells, the definition of a somatic cell is - Any cell in a multicellular organism except gametes and their precursors. As to your second set of questions if you are talking about replicating, then yes differentiated cells do proliferate in vivo, generally via mitos...

hi, I have two questions: 1) Are adult stem cells somatic cells? 2) Can differentiated cells proliferate in vivo? I mean once blood cells, nerve cells, muscle cells are differentiated do they actually proliferate if they are not cancerous? Or can only stem cells proliferate? I find the concept of ad...

Re: How did endosymbionts coordinate replication?

... would end up with over- or under-optimal numbers of mitochondria. Since many of the critical proteins in a mitochondrian are nuclear-encoded, the proliferation of the mitochondria can be limited by the availability of the nuclear-encoded gene products.
