A system of microtubules, actin filaments, and intermediate filaments that provide the internal framework and allow for movement in eukaryotic cells.
endoplasmic reticulum (ER)
The _____ is a network of flattened sacs and branching tubules that extends throughout the cytoplasm in plant and animal cells.
The surface of the _____ endoplasmic reticulum is covered with _____, giving it a bumpy appearance when viewed through the microscope.
rough (endoplasmic reticulum)
This type of endoplasmic reticulum is involved mainly with the production and processing of proteins that will be exported, or secreted, from the cell.
smooth (endoplasmic reticulum)
The _____ endoplasmic reticulum is chiefly involved with the production of lipids (fats), building blocks for carbohydrate metabolism, and the detoxification of drugs and poisons
The _____ functions to give shape to cells lacking a cell wall and allow for cell movement.
_____ are hollow tubes made of subunits of the protein tubulin. They provide structural support for the cell and play a role in cell division, cell movement, and movement of organelles within the cell.
_____ are solid, rodlike structures composed of actin. They provide structural support, and play a roll in phagocytosis, cell and organelle movement, and cell division.
_____ are located near the nucleus and appear as cylindrical structures consisting of a ring of nine evenly spaced bundles of three microtubules. They play a role in the formation of cilia and flagella. During animal cell division, the mitotic spindle forms between them.
The main function of these microscopic organelles is to serve as digestion compartments for cellular materials that have exceeded their lifetime or are otherwise no longer useful.
