Transcript of The Endosymbiosis Theory

Supporting evidence: The Endosymbiont Theory By : Stefani Shepard & Makala Muhammed http://animoto.com/play/104R9xqTPWh3slU5rZNC3A This theory stated that early eukaryotic cells had a symbiotic relationship with prokaryotes.
For example some prokaryotes were digested or could have been internal parasites.
There are two types of endosymbiosis: primary & secondary. Scientists found that mitochondria & purple aerobic bacteria share similar traits & functions.
Chloroplasts are very similar to a photosynthetic bacteria because they have similar chlorophyll.
The plain fact that mitochondria & chloroplasts have any genetic information of their own argues in the favor of this theory. The overall concept: Mitochondria: Chloroplast: Contradicting evidence: This theory does not explain the emergence of non-plastid type organelles like the Golgi apparatus and the endoplasmic reticulum. Golgi apparatus: Endoplasmic reticulum: How it relates to the ''How Life Began'' theory: Endosymbiosis relates to cells and the fact that they only arise from pre-existing cells.
It also applies to organisms being multicellular and the basic unit of life. Macro-molecules & their relationship to how life began: First Hypothesized Cell:
Cyanobacteria Chloroplasts are one of the many different types of organelles in the plant cell. In general, they are considered to have originated from Cyanobacteria through endosymbiosis.

Evidence shows that symbiont-derived macromolecules are involved in the protection of symbionts from digestion.
Symbionts utilize host-derived macromolecules to their benefit.
