Organelle that de-clutters the cell by breaking down extra materials
Organelle that contains ribosomes that synthesize proteins.
Organelle that regulates what enters and exits the nucleus
Organelle that stores water, salts, proteins or carbohydrates
Organelle found in the cytoplasm or rough ER that assembles proteins.
Cell structure that regulates what enters and exits the cell.
Organelle that changes light energy into food for plant cells
Organelle that contains DNA for the cell's basic functions
Organelle that converts food into energy for the cell
Organelle that synthesizes lipids and detoxifies the cell
Pair of organelles that assist in cell division
Organelle that modifies, sorts, and packages proteins.
Cell structure that gives support and protection to plant cells.
Parent from whom you get most of your mitochondrial DNA.
Cells without a nucleus
Cells that contain a nucleus
Chloroplasts and cell walls
Two organelles found in plant cells but not in animal cells
The most abundant prokaryotes on Earth
Term used to describe most cell membranes
When the concentration of solutes is higher
When the concentration of solutes is lower
When the concentration of solutes is the same throughout a system
The diffusion of water
Dense part of the nucleus where ribosomes are made
The first person to view and name "cells"
Century when cells were first viewed and named
Spaces in the nuclear membrane that allow materials to pass
A material that is dissolved in water
The granular material in the nucleus that condenses into chromosomes before cell division
Nucleus and cytoplasm
Two main parts of a eukaryotic cell
Difference between permeable, semipermeable, and impermeable
Permeable membranes allow everything to pass through them; semipermeable membranes allow some things to pass and others cannod; impermeable membranes do not allow anything to pass through them.
New techniques and technologies for studying cells
Electron microscopes, dyes, videography, photography
Two characteristics all cells have in common
DNA at some point in their lives and a cell membrane.
Diversity in organisms is caused by
Differentiation of cells in multicellular organisms; they differentiate according to their functions
Three parts of the Cell theory
All living things are made up of cells, cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things, new cells come from existing cells.
Diffusion v/s active transport
Diffusion does not use energy because it goes down the concentration gradient, active transport uses energy because it goes up the concentration gradient.
