- mitochondrial matrix
- Reverse Transcriptase
- endomembrane system
- a A network of membranes inside and around a eukaryotic cell, related either through direct physical contact or by the transfer of membranous vesicles.
- b The fluid contained within the inner membrane of a mitochondrion.
- c A sac made of membrane in the cytoplasm of a eukaryotic cell.
- d Makes RNA into DNA
- e The thickest of the three main kinds of fibers making up the cytoskeleton of a eukaryotic cell; a straight, hollow tube made of globular proteins called tubulins. Microtubules form the basis of the structure and movement of cilia and flagella.
5 Multiple choice questions
- A stack of hollow disks formed of thylakoid membrane in a chloroplast. Grana are the sites where light energy is trapped by chlorophyll and converted to chemical energy during the light reactions of photosynthesis.
- An organelle in eukaryotic cells where cellular respiration occurs. Enclosed by two concentric membranes, it is where most of the cell's ATP is made.
- An infolding of the inner membrane of a mitochondrion in which is embedded the electron transport chain and the enzyme catalyzing the synthesis of ATP.
- The chemical activities of cells.
- The complex of DNA and proteins that constitutes eukaryotic chromosomes; often used to refer to the diffuse, very extended form taken by chromosomes when a cell is not dividing.
5 True/False questions
flagellum → A structure within the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell where ribosomal RNA is made and assembled with proteins imported from the cytoplasm to make ribosomal subunits.
central vacuole → A structure in an animal cell composed of cylinders of microtubule triplets arranged in a 9 and 0 pattern. An animal usually has a centrosome with a pair of centrioles involved in cell division.
extracellular matrix (ECM) → A substance in which the cells of an animal tissue are embedded; consists of protein and polysaccharides.
transmission electron microscope → A microscope that uses an electron beam to study the surface architecture of a cell or other specimen.
light microscope (LM) → An optical instrument with lenses that refract (bend) visible light to magnify images and project them into a viewer's eye or onto photographic film.
