What are the 11 main functions a cell must perform in order to support and maintain life?
absorption, digestion, respiration, biosynthesis, excretion, egestion, secretion, movement, irritability, homeostasis, and reproduction
When a cell is placed in an isotonic solution, what happens to the water?
The water diffuses back and forth across the membrane
When a cell is placed in a hypertonic solution, what happens to the water?
The water leaves the cell and enters the surroundings
When a cell is places in a hypotonic solution, water enters the cell from the surroundings, which can result in....

If an animal cell performs respiration in aerobic conditions, how many ATP's can it make for each glucose molecule?
Found in animal cells, it is responsible for hydrolysis reactions that break down proteins, polysaccharides, disaccharides, and some lipids.
Extensive network of folded membranes dotted with ribosomes that produces specialized proteins secreted by certain cells.
Extensive network of folded membranes in which substances like lipids and hormones are made.
A large vacuole at the center of plant cells that is responsible for making turgor pressure
A network of fibers that holds the cell together, helps the cell to keep its shape, and aids in movement
Made of phospholipids, cholesterol, proteins and other chemicals, it regulates what can come into and what can leave the cell.
Organelles where proteins and lipids are stored and then modified to suit the needs of the cell
Small, membrane-bounded "sac" that holds secretion products so that they can be transported to the plasma membrane and released
Usually found in plant and bacteria cells, it is a rigid structure on the outside of the cell that provides protection and support to the cell
Small, membrane-bounded "sac" formed at the plasma membrane to allow the absorption of large molecules
