Unformatted text preview: hesis of Evidence for Endosymbiotic Hypothesis of the origin of mitochondria & chloroplasts
Similarities between bacteria & mitochondria & chloroplasts:
Single circular naked DNA
Same sized ribosomes (small)
Protein synthesis inhibited by antibiotics
Enzymes for synthesis of DNA, RNA, Protein similar
Electron transport system in the walls of the structure
Experiment: Chloroplast ribosomes + bacterial ribosomes hybrid ribosome functions normally. Evidence for Endosymbiotic Hypothesis
Evidence for Endosymbiotic Hypothesis
9. Mutualism is very common in bacteria & Protista:
e.g. Protozoan in termite guts
