compairing muscle cells and skin cells...

Post by DMB_Jerzey » Wed Feb 21, 2007 7:11 pm

There was a question on a test today in class that read:

    Compared to a skin cell, a muscle cell is likely to have more...
    A) Golgi bodies
    B) Mitochondria
    C) Cell membranes
    D) Chloroplasts

I chose B) Mitochondria, and was just wondering if that was right because it's the only one I'm not too sure about...I'm not real good with the whole body/cell thing in biology.

Yeh sounds correct. Muscle cells require more ATP.

golgi apparatus- most abundant in secretory cells, such as the ones in glands.
mitochondria - most abundant in muscle cells, because they need energy
cell membrane - each cell has only one membrane. no exceptions
chloroplasts - absent in animals, present only in plants.
