Will mark you as ! keiko’s teacher was discussing the theory of endosymbiosis. she asked keiko to mark the organelles in the diagram that most closely resembled prokaryotes. which organelles should keiko mark? * the first image is the question and the second image is some information to you answer the !
Answer is the mitochondria and the chloroplast
Both the mitochondria and the chloroplast contain their own DNA and can synthesize their own proteins separate from the rest of the cells. They also replicate themselves very much similar to bacteria. This striking similarities leads us to believe that they were previously prokaryotes and therefore should be marked by Keiko.
The correct answer would be mitochondria or chloroplast.
Endosymbiosis refers to the evolution theory which explains the origin of eukaryotic cells from prokaryotic cells.
It is believed that cell organelles like chloroplast, mitochondria et cetera were free-living early prokaryotic cells which were taken inside the other cells by the process of endosymbiosis. It led to the origin of eukaryotic cells which were able to perform photosynthesis.
Thus, Keiko should mark chloroplast or mitochondria in the diagram.
