Prominent structure in the nucleus is the site where a special type of RNA called ribosomal RNA is synthesized.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
Has ribosomes that stud the outer surface of the membrane; thus it appears rough in the electron micrograph.
Organelles that carry out cellular respiration in nearly all eukaryotic cells, converting the chemical energy of foods such as sugars to the chemical energy of the molecule called ATP.
Folds that increase the membrane's surface area, enhancing the mitochondrian's ability to produce ATP.
States that mitochondria and chloroplasts were formerly small prokaryotes that began living within larger cells.
Also called actin filaments. Solid rods composed mainly of globular proteins called acting, arranged in a twisted double chain.
Layer that helps hold cells together in tissues and protects and supports the plasma membrane.
Span the membrane, attaching to the other side of proteins connected to micro filaments of the cytoskeleton.
