300. Are basic development patterns similar among all animals? – No.. They vary greatly. Sometimes the first two cells divide in unequal sizes and each cell becomes a specific part of the animal (like worms). Sometimes the first two cells are similar (like sea star)
intermediate – One of the compounds that form between the initial reactant and the final product in a metabolic pathway, such as between glucose and pyruvate in glycolysis.
Organ system – A group of organs working together to perform a particular function. Example – The digestive system includes a number of organs (mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, large intestine) all dedicated to breaking down food, absorbing the nutrients, and getting rid of the indigestible waste.
