During the life cycle of a cell, each cell divides to form two genetically identical cells. This process is called mitosis. Just before the cell enters mitosis, the DNA duplicates. During the process of mitosis each half of the DNA is pulled to towards the opposite poles of the cell. When the cell divides into… Continue reading Why do cells need ATP? – role of ATP in cell division
One of the ways in which ATP is used in the cell is to transport vesicles from the Golgi apparatus to different parts of the cells. Vesicles act like postmen, carrying tagged proteins and lipids from the sorting office (Golgi) to the delivery address (around the cell). The postvan is a tiny motor protein called… Continue reading Why do cells need ATP?
