Answer to Question #92369 in Cell Biology for Jessica

Question #92369
Assuming you were part of a scientific convention that was studying viruses, would you argue for or against the statement " Viruses are alive?"

At this same convention your next dilemma is to inform other scientists of multicellular organisms dependency on both Prokaryotes and Protists. Where would you begin? Why would there be no multicellular animals without first Prokaryotes and Protists?
Expert's answer

Viruses are non living organisms since they do not reproduce and have no self regulating actions such sprouting like plants in search for water. Eukaryotes emerged from two different prokaryotes in a process called endosymbiosis where one organism engulfed the other,the host gained from chemical energy derived from the mitochondrion that emerged from the association while the mitochondrion benefited from protection and nutrients.The two mutually coexisted and merged into a single organism.
