8 Three Prokaryotic Cells The fermentation-only archaeon has taken in a bacterial cell and a cyanobacterial cell as endosymbiontsBy not digesting them completely, but removing the cell wall, the archaeon has gained two gigantic biochemical pathways: respiration and photosynthesisBy moving critical genes from each endosymbiont, using its transposon feature, the archaeon has trapped both endosymbionts as permanent organellesThis is almost a eukaryotic plant cell!
9 Three Prokaryotic Cells The archaeon still needs to convert its endomembrane system into endoplasmic reticulumAnd consolidate the encircling membranes into a nuclear envelopeAnd make its circular chromosomes linear with telomeresAnd finish the evolution of the 80S ribosomesIt also needs to entrap some spirochetes for a cytoskeleton and for a eukaryotic flagellumThe sequence of these steps relative to the endosymbiont capture is still being resolved!
