Multicellularity The Origin of the Eukaryotic Cell Jen Trinh Life is pretty darn great Fantastic Absolutely marvleous Sure you may have finals to study for graduate school to consider a job to find etc but at least you can breathe You can eat an apple and appreciate the sweet crispness you can sleep and you can dream and it s partly because a long time ago two unicellular organisms came together and formed a symbiotic relationship It is mind boggling to consider the path that led from a unicellular organism to the organism you see in the mirror every day in fact we have no definitive explanation for even the beginning of this process mostly the why remains unexplained the how is marginally clearer Therefore my goal in this handout is to lay before you some proposed theories for the birth of the eukaryotic cell and the reasoning behind them in hopes that you will take a deep breath give yourself or someone thing else a hug exhale and be happy to be alive and capable of all that you can do I may be blowing this a bit out of proportion but this is all stuff that you should be doing already anyway Organisms associate and the conditions under which these associations occur determine whether or not the organisms will develop higher level relationships For example if you fight with someone you can either solve the conflict and become good friends who help each other or you can continue to fight with them and find more and more malicious ways to torment them or completely cut ties with them I feel like Ari will talk about cooperation a lot so I will steer clear of the topic and instead we ll mainly focus on the origin of the eukaryotic cell In each of these theories for why the cell in which the mitochondria resides we ll call this the nctb short for nucleocytosol to be took in the mitochondrion cell mtb short for mitochondria to be there are three stages initial interaction conflict and conflict mediation I will refer to these stages throughout Hypothesis 1 Hydrogen
