Apoptosis is irrelevant for declaring yeast is multicellular… You do know that right? But, to humor the people reading, why don’t you quote something where he states what you’re stating… Also, wrong again on Volvox… You are getting sloppy again Burz!! http://9e.devbio.com/article.php?ch=18&id=302 - Through a series of cell movements resembling gastrulation, the embryonic Volvox invert and are eventually released from the parent. The somatic cells of the parent, lacking gonidia, undergo senescence and undergo programmed cell death, while the juvenile Volvox mature. The entire asexual cycle takes 2 days.Mo[b]ility is irrelevant as far as multicellularity is concerned. Regardless, Volvox doesn't use apoptosis as part of reproduction. During asexual reproduction, the cells surrounding the daughter(s) just separate from each other. None of them die through apoptosis.
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...73.ch2/summary - Half-way through their maturation, juveniles hatch out of the parenteral spheroid, whereupon parental somatic cells undergo programmed death while juvenile gonidia prepare for a new round of reproduction.
OOOPS!!!!! Looks like you were wrong again… Burz… you should know me by now – I gave you volvox for a reason, to do your research – you didn’t… now you are just in a deeper whole than what you were beforehand… I do suggest you just drop this before it becomes EPIC, because that’s where it’s headed… I like you, but you are spiraling out of control trying to prove point after point that is just not there!
No, that is just breaking off a cluster, no cells were reproduced in any way… You know that… you are really getting sloppy in your attempt to save face…What do you mean that I was wrong from the get-go? The article states that apoptosis is what causes the clusters to split into daughter clusters. That's reproduction through fission.
Just did above…Please, provide a link to a colony of unicellular organisms that splits through apoptosis.
