mitochondria have their own DNA
passive transport of water across a membrane from a solution of lower solute concentration to a solution of higher solute concentration is best described as
the principal component of cell membranes are
lipids (phospholipid bilayer)
mitochondria are thought to have evolved from free-living bacteria that were incorporated into eukaryotic cells by endosymbiosis. which of the following pieces of evidence for this hypothesis is INCORRECT
mitochondria can survive and reproduce independently when moved from the host cell
