Q:

What is the normal value of a pus cell?

A:

The normal value of a pus cell is 5 to 8 in males and up to 10 per high power field for women. A high power field refers to the visibility of pus on a slide viewed by a microscope at approximately 500X.

The accumulation of pus is a normal response from your immune system to fight off infection. Pus is a combination of dead tissue, bacteria and white blood cells. A routine urine test which is found to have abnormally high levels of pus may be the result of a urinary tract infection, kidney inflammation or Lupus, for example.

  • Q:

    How does cytokinesis differ in animal and plant cells?

    A:

    Cytokinesis is accomplished in animal cells by a narrowing cleavage furrow that pulls inward and eventually splits the cell, while plant cells divide through the formation of a new cell wall that grows outward from the central portion of the cell. Because animal cells have a movable plasma membrane instead of the stiff outer cell wall which plant cells possess, the cleavage furrow can easily pull inward until the cell is physically split. A plant cell's stiff outer wall, however, does not permit this type of pliability, and requires the construction of a new cell wall to divide.
