1. Let’s say this page (about 20×25 cm) is the size of a typical bacterial cell. Using the same scale, and showing your calculations.
A. a typical virus
B. a protein in the bacterial cell membrane
C. at the same scale, how many sheets of paper would you need to represent an Amoeba? A yeast cell? A red blood cell?
A) Describe Two microscopy techniques you would most likely use to visualize the outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) associating with nanowires. Explain how these techniques would be especially useful for viewing OMVs attached to nanowires.
B)Compare this type of OMV transport to the eukaryotic endomembrane system. Given what you know about the “endosymbiont theory” (the idea that eukaryotic organelles originated as captive bacteria within other cells) and what you know about the endomembrane system, evaluate the possibility that OMVs and nanowires represent evolutionary intermediates in the formation of eukaryotic cells.
