Two highlighted portions are contrasting.
So in order to complete this sentence we need a conjuction that support this contrast.
I think 'yet' serves this purpose.
So D should be the answer.

Shouldn't it be D?

The sentence two features of the cells -- similar as well as contrasting behaviour. so "yet" use seems to be correct
