AKA microscopic anatomy; study of tiny structures found in living tissues
Basic units of all living things, from bacteria to plants to animals, including humans. Life does not exist without them. Responsible for carrying on all life processes. Trillions of them;vary in shape, size and purpose
colorless jelly-like substances found inside cells in which food elements such as proteins, fats, carbs, mineral salts, and water are present
the dense, active protoplasm found in the center of the cell. Important in cell reproduction and metabolism
the protoplasm of the cell, except for the protoplasm in the nucleus, that surrounds the nucleus. watery fluid that needs for growth, reproduction, and self-repair
Cell Membrane
The cell part that encloses the protoplasm and permits soluble substances to enter and leave the cell
the usual process of cell reproduction of human tissues that occurs when the cell divides into two identical cells called daughter cells
Two small structures near the nucleus. move to each side during the mitosis process to help divide the cell
chemical process that takes place in living organisms, through which the cells are nourished and carry out their activities. Has two phases
Constructive metabolism, the process of building up later molecules from smaller ones. During this process the body stores water, food, and oxygen for the times when these substances will be needed for cell growth, reproduction or repair
the phase of metabolism that involves the breaking down of complex compounds within the cells into smaller ones. Releases energy that has been stored
