comment How are synaptic vesicles brought to the synapse?
Thanks for the link, looks like it's Rab GTPases that attach them to microtubules.

comment What happens when cells in your body run out of telomeres?
A figure in the book taken from 6th generation telomerase deficient mice was taken from: Cell, Blasco, M. A., ‘Telomere shortening and tumor formation by mouse cells lacking telomerase RNA’, 91, pp. 25–34

comment Regulation of chromatin structure
AFAIK chromatin would not assume the most compact structure without topoisomerase activity.

comment How is the blood volume of a living organism measured without killing it?
I didn't downvote your answer, I'm not really in much of a position to judge it, but it does seem to be unnecessarily complicated.

comment Is there any reason for the variation in mitochondrial DNA size?
I know yeast is supposed to have very little non-coding DNA, but could it be possible that mitochondria in yeast have more intron regions?

comment Mitosis in human body
That's right, but they do develop from precursor cells that contain a nucleus. To be honest, I don't know of many other cells that continue dividing at a steady rate. As far as I know cells such as fibroblasts and macrophages are mainly produced in response to stimulus. There are probably other types that I am missing however...

That's right. I was wondering if the images could be superimposed somehow, since that was not very clear to me.
