Mitochondria Independent Prokaryotes/Sybiotic Relations

Post by Funkfruit » Tue Jun 23, 2009 3:10 pm

The belief that mitochondria were once independent prokaryotes that have now evolved a symbiotic relationship with cells is supported by all of the following evidence except that:

A.) Mitochondria have their own genetic information.
B.) Mitochondrial DNA is in a loop.
C.) Mitochondria do their own reproducing inside the cell.
D.) Mitochondria make all their own proteins.
