Sex Limited Trait

The traits limited to only one sex due to anatomical differences are called a sex limited treat. Such trait affects a structure or function of the body of males or females only. These traits are controlled by sex-linked or autosomal genes. For example: (i).       Genes for milk production in dairy cattle affect only cows. (ii).      Beard growth in humans is ...

Sex Determination

XY – MECHANISM This pattern of sex determim tion is round in Drosophila, man and many other organisms. (a) Male: Male is XY. Mite is heterogametic. It produces two types of sex-determining sperms. Half the sperms carry X-chromosome and the other half carry Y — chromosome. Chances for both types of sperms are equal. ) Female: Female is XX. Female ...

Mitochondria

The Powerhouse Of The Cell Mitochondria is commonly called as power house of the cell. They provide energy transuding system. This system is used to change the food into chemical energy by oxidative phosphorylation. ATP is synthesized during oxidative phosphorylation. Discovery: Mitochondria was first described by Altmann in 1894. He named them as bioblast. He predicted that bioblast had some ...

collenchyma and sclerenchyma tissues Table of Simple Tissues is as Follow   Collenchyma Tissues Collenchyma is a living tissue composed of more or less elongated cells with unevenly thick, glistering, primary non-lignified walls. Collenchyma develops from the elongated cells which resemble procambium or from isodiametric cells of the ground meristems. Collenchyma functions as supporting tissue in young growing organs and ...

Parenchyma Tissues

Tissue Types And Tissue Systems Different Tissues with their brief explanation, their structure, their functions and their role is shown in the following diagram. Permanent Tissues The permanent tissue develops from meristematic cells which get differentiated. These cells lose power of division. They can resume meristematic activity if needed. The cells of the permanent tissue may be living or dead and ...
