All living things are composed of cells. Cells are the basic units of structure & function in living things. New cells are produced from existing cells.
structure that contains the cell's genetic material (DNA) & controls its activitiesTranslation of mRNA happens here
unicellular or multicellular organism whose cells contain nuclei; genetic material is contained in a nucleus
Unicellular / Multicellular
Unicellular- single-celled organismMulticellular-organisms that are made up of many cells
only allows certain or specific items to pass throughcell membrane is semi-permeable
going against the concentration gradientenergy-requiring process that moves material in the opposite direction or across a cell membrane against a concentration differencegoing from a low concentration to a high concentrationrequired energy- ATP used in cellular respiration & sunlight in Photosynthesis
helper molecule required to get through semi-permeable membrane by protein channelsno energy required, it moves w/ the concentration gradientgoing from high concentration to low concentrationEX- salt, sugars, ions, ATP SYNTHASE
diffusion of water across the semi-permeable cell membranewater molecules will move from areas or solutions w/ high concentration to areas w/ lower concentration
process by which molecules tend to move from an area where they are more concentrated to an area where they are less concentrated; once they are equal they are in equilibrium; molecules cont. to move even after equilibrium
collection of living matter enclosed by a barrier that separates the cell from its surroundsbasic unit of all forms of lifesmallest levelspecialized function
