Describe the RESULTS obtained in this experiment. (4 pts) The fluorescent staining pattern of the arterial ECs matched that of the PSNs in 15.5 day old embryo samples. The fluorescent staining pattern of the venous ECs did not match that of the PSNs in the same samples. . 2. Nature has imposed rather strict size limitations on eukaryotic animal cells. Karp discusses three possible biological reasons why most cells are so small. In one or two sentences each, describe two of these possible reasons.
