An idea that was shockingly revolutionary as recently as the early nineties--but is now almost universally accepted--is that mitochondria are descendants of bacteria (procaryotes
)--that the discovery of the advantages of keeping computer disks and coal is separate compartments involved a large simple cell (which was perhaps energetically inefficient) getting invaded by a smaller bacteria (which was energetically more efficient).
The first level designates the basic subdivisions of fossil procaryotes
, Single-Celled eucaryotes, invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants.

The arrival of eucaryotes looks more progressive than it really was because of the failure to depict the persisting hordes of procaryotes
. The same false impression is conveyed with each new arrival on the stage: vertebrates, large-brained animals, and so on.
Bacteria, together with cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), are single-celled lower protista known as procaryotes
. Procaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus, the bacteria's DNA being present as a single molecule in the cell's interior.
coli) using traditional recombinant DNA techniques, because procaryotes
lack the machinery necessary to synthesize biologically active proteins. Tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) is such a protein and is an important therapeutic agent for a variety of human clotting disorders.
