Introduction to Cell Division Practice Problems
All blood cells originate from the stem cell within the bone marrow. When the stem cell divides, it becomes an immature blood cell. This immature blood cell again divides to develop into mature cells which can be red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. Which events trigger the bone marrow to produce and release more white blood cells?
Why is it important for a cell to undergo DNA synthesis before it can proceed to cell division?
