What parts of the cell are inherited?
« on: 10/04/2011 23:37:34 »
When we are conceived, what parts of our cell machinary are inherited from the parent cells.

Obviously, the DNA.
Less well known, the mitochondria seem to be passed down from female to female. Presumably they have their own method of reproduction?
I would like to identify any other components that are inherited without the use of DNA.
