contains contents of cell and stands between nucleus and cell membrane; contains liquid and organelles
manufactures proteins, stores synthesized molecules, transports materials, and detoxifies/neutralizes chemicals
smooth endoplasmic reticulum
synthesizes phospholipids, cholesterol, steroid hormones, glycerides, and glycogen
rough endoplasmic reticulum
affiliated ribosomes produce proteins; will package and send proteins and materials to the Golgi apparatus
vesicles filled with enzymes that perform clean up functions within the cells; engulf and digest debris and bacteria
form dense layer inside the plasma membrane; attaches plasma membrane to cytoplasm by forming connections with proteins - gives shape and structure to cell
made mostly of phospholipids and cholesterol; helps substances move into or out of cell
movement of substances from an area of high concentration toward area of low concentration through channels in the plasma membrane
type of solution where substances migrate from a lower concentration outside the cell to a higher concentration inside the cell
type of solution where substance migrate from a lower concentration inside the cell to a higher concentration outside the cell
carrier protein moves a substance from an area of high concentration toward an area of low concentration
carrier protein moves substances across plasma membrane with help of ATP (energy); movement is not dependent on concentration gradient and substances can move from areas of low concentration to areas of high concentration
packaging of intracellular materials into a vesicle for discharge into extracellular environment
reproductive cell division where parent cell produces two cells, each cell having half of the genetic information as the parent cell
True or false. Cell division commonly occurs in mature cells of nervous tissue, skeletal muscle, and cardiac muscle.
