Unformatted text preview: Potential events Cells with flexible plasma membrane capable of engulfing food particle by folding inward (endocytosis). What made plasma membrane flexible? 1- Presence of sterols 2- Cytoskeleton, specially microtubule Formation of endomembrane system. Potential events Enclosure of DNA within an intracellular sac (Nucleus) Mitochondria and chloroplast A phagocyte could prey on bacteria without digesting the precursors of mitochondria or chloroplast, BUT instead adopted them. This could have led to the establishment of a symbiotic (living together) relationship. Vorticella a modern protist with endosymbiotic relationship with some green alga Vorticella a heterotroph that obtains Photosynthetic products from algae. Algae in return obtains essential mineral nutrients from the host EM of Vorticella containing alga Each algal cell is in a separate vacuole bound by a single membrane...
