I would have to say yes but the person would really need alot of free time on their hands to take care of an animal. I have a couple of pets and I'm with them most of the time.

Thats what I thought because they both come from basal bodies

Pinocytosis and phagocytosis are both types of endocytosis. Pinocytosis is cellular drinking and phagocytosis is cellular eating. Here is a site that I found very useful when learning about the cell membrane and types of transport across it. m -go to active transport and then click on endocytosis an...

Well first of all centrioles give rise to basal bodies, which are microtubule organizing centers for the formation of cilia and flagella. Also centrioles have a 9+0 pattern of microtubules and flagella has a basal body with a 9+0 pattern and also has a shaft of 9+2 pattern. My only question is wheth...
