Cell Transport/Cell Organelles Test
Terms in this set (47)
All organisms are composed of cells, All cells come from pre existing cells, The cell is the basic unit of life.
Separates the cell from the surrounding environment.
Double layer of molecules, tails facing inwards and heads facing outwards.
Transports ions and molecules across the plasma membrane
Found between phospholipid tails to prevent them from sticking together.
Adhesion to other cells.
A type of transport through the membrane that does NOT require energy. They just flow through the membrane.
Form of passive transport. Molecules move from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration.
The diffusion of water through the membrane. Water moves from an area of low concentration to an area of high concentration to balance the levels out.
Concentration inside the cell is equal to the concentration outside the cell.
Concentration outside the cell is greater that the concentration inside the cell. Water will diffuse out so the cell shrinks.
Concentration is greater inside the cell than outside to the cell will grow because water diffuses into it.
A type of passive transport. molecules and ions go through concentration gradients. For big molecules that cant fit through the membrane.
Movement of materials against a concentration gradient. Low concentration to high concentration. Requires ENERGY.
Materials are ingested by the cell. The membrane forms a bubble around the material ingested. pushes in.
How big particles or big molecules are transported out of a cell. Makes a bubble and pushes out.
Fluid Mosaic Model
What makes up the membrane; a model of the membrane.
A cell just made up of a cell membrane and a cell wall that does not have a real nucleus. Just a small molecule with DNA in it
A true cell that has a nucleus. A larger cell that has a membrane and some have a cell wall.
Only found in plant cells and is made up of glucose.
The part of a cell with the DNA in it. "Brain" of the cell and makes sure things are working in order.
Found inside the nucleus and makes ribosomes.
The liquid that all of the organelles are in. `
Solution of ions, small molecules and proteins.
Balanced and stable internal environment.
Provides the energy necessary to carry out life functions.
Control and coordination of various activities.
Keeps the organelles in place.
Membrane bound compartments
Small organelles for protein synthesis. Can be attached to rough ER or floating freely.
Cells packing and distribution center.
The golgi bodies produces these bubbles that carry out products to the cell.
Cell storage. Plant cells have one big one while animal cells have many small ones.
The powerhouse of the cell
Nutrients needed to carry out life functions.
The removal of cellular waste products.
Utilizes the products of synthesis.
Used for lipid synthesis.
Has ribosomes attached to it. Transport system in cell.
Cell clean up crew.
break down stuff into oxygen.
Pulls chromosomes to opposite ends of cell for splitting.
Tail for movement.
site of photosynthesis.
Absorption and distribution of materials within an organism.
Large molecules built from smaller ones.
Species survival is dependent upon it
