Power house of the cell. Creates ATP
Plant cell wall
Match with cellulose
Cilia and flagella
cellular organelles on the surface protrude from the cell and beat or vibrate to create movement
Skin weighs how much
6 pounds (nearly twice the weight of the brain of the liver.)
Most dangerous type of skin cancer
Malignant melanoma- a rare and associated with a mole on the skin.
Connective tissue
Allows movement and support. (Blood, fat, or bone)
Muscle tissue
Generates movement. Three types skeletal or voluntary, smooth of involuntary, and cardiac.
Nervous tissue
Composed of nerve cells forming a coordinating system connecting the numerous sensory (touch,sight)
Epithelial tissue
Covers surfaces and protects, forms glands, and lines cavities of the body. Made up of one or more layers of cells.
Connective tissue
Allows movement and support. (Blood, fat, or bone)
Chemical fuel that allows the body to do work (in mitochondria)
Total chemical changes that occur inside a cell
Without oxygen
Blood forming tissue-stores mineral salts (calcium and phosphorous)
Basic organization of nerve cells transports impulses (conducting cell)

Glands that have ducts that lead the secreted material away from the gland to the surface of a passage way or the skin
Innermost layer of the heart wall , endothelium that lines the heart
Adipose tissue
A fatty tissue that acts as firm protective packing around and between organs
Top layer of skin
1st degree burn
burn that involves only epidermis causes redness pain and slight swelling

Blistered , moist , pink / red
3rd degree burn
Charring, skin is black / brown / red. a burn that completely destroys the epidermis and the dermis and may require skin graft.
