Biology - Cell specialisation and differentiation
Cell specialisation and differentiation
Early frog embryo: the cells are not yet differentiated (specialised)
into distinct cell types
All cells begin as simple unspecialised or undifferentiated cells. As
cells mature, cells becomes adapted to carry out a particular function,
depending on its location within the organism (if multicellular).
View the video of later frog embryo development: cells specialise to form
different tissues and organs (the eye and heart are visible).
