prokaryotes

Organisms who cells never contain a nucleus

hypotonic solution

the concentration of solutes inside the cell is greater than the concentration of solutes outside the cell

pinocytosis

a process where a cell engulfs a food particle instead of a drop of liquid

ribosomes

Make proteins

organelles

structures that work like miniature organs, carrying out specific functions in the cell

cytoplasm

Everything between the cell membrane and the nucleus is the cell's

phagocytosis

sometimes called cell drinking

diffusion

the net movement of molecules from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration

gradient

the difference between the concentration of a particular molecule in one area and the concentration in an adjacent area

nucleoli

make ribosomes, which, in turn make proteins

membrane

allows certain molecules to pass through

mitochandria

the power house of a cell

endoplasmic

Poisons, wastes, and other toxic chemicals are made harmless in the ________ reticulum, it also connects the nuclear envelope to the cell membrane

chromosomes

in the nucleus contain coded blueprints that control all cullular activity

cilia

short, hairlike, projections of locomotion

cytoskeleton

maintains the three dimensional structure of the cell and helps the cell move

osmosis

the diffusion of water across a semipermeable membrane

active transport

when energy is used to transport molecules across the membrane the process is called

suspended

______ in the cytosol are tiny organelles

hypertonic

In a ___________ solution , the concentration of solutes inside and outside the cell is equal.

microtubules

hollow tubes, like plumbing pipes that maintain the shape of the cell and serve as tracks for organelles to move along within the cell

isotonic solution

the concentration of solutes outside the cell is higher than the concentration of solutes inside the cell
