- inclusion body
- basal body
- a A stacked portion of the thylakoid membrane in the chloroplast; functions in the light reactions of photosynthesis.
- b A eukaryotic cell organelle consisting of a 9 + 0 arrangement of microtubule triplets; may organize the microtubule assembly of a cilium or flagellum; structurally identical to a centriole.
- c an area within a chloroplast that lies between the thylakoid membranes; serves as the site of the Calvin cycle in photosynthesis which involves the synthesis of carbohydrates
- d in a bacterium, stored nutrients for later use
- e the smallest unit that can perform all life processes; cells are covered by a membrane and contain DNA and cytoplasm
5 Multiple choice questions
- any spherical or nearly spherical bacteria
- idea that all living things are composed of cells, cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things, and new cells are produced from existing cells
- a microscopic network of actin filaments and microtubules in the cytoplasm of many living cells that gives the cell shape and coherence
- string of ribosomes simultaneously translating regions of the same mRNA strand during protein synthesis
- The complex of DNA and proteins that makes up a eukaryotic chromosome. When the cell is not dividing, it exists as a mass of very long, thin fibers that are not visible with a light microscope.
5 True/False questions
chloroplast → type of plastid that synthesizes and stores red, yellow, and orange pigments, responsible for colors of many fruits and flowers
nuclear pore → opening in the nuclear envelope that permits the passage of proteins into the nucleus and ribosomal subunits out of the nucleus
microtubule → membrane-bound sac that buds from the endoplasmic reticulum or the Golgi apparatus, storage structures for food, water, minerals, waste
glycocalyx → any spherical or nearly spherical bacteria
plasma membrane → membrane-bound sac containing digestive enzymes that can break down proteins, nucleic acids, and polysaccharides
