Forms part of the protein synthesis site in the cytoplasm
Act as "interpreter" molecules that recognize specific amino acids and nucleotide base sequence
Attaches the correct amino acid to its transfer RNA
Provides energy needed for synthesis reactions
Found in the cytoplasm, this structure the exact sequence of amino acids of the protein to be made
May be attached to the endoplasmic reticulum or scattered in the cytoplasm
Chromosomes decoil to form chromatin
Chromosomal centromeres split and chromosomes migrate to opposite end of the cell
Nuclear membrane and nucleolus disintegrate
Chromosomes align on the spindle equator
Centrioles move to opposite ends of the cell
Plays a role in the synthesis of steroid-based hormones and proteins
The actual site of protein synthesis
Hollow cytoskeletal elements that act as organizers for the cytoskeleton
Dense spherical bodies in the nuceleus that are the synthesis site for ribosomal RNA
Houses DNA and RNA
Help prevent molecules from passing through the extracellular space between adjacent cells
Type of anchoring junction
Present electrically excitable tissues
Abundant in tissues subjected to great mechanical stress
