Card Set Information
The only type of macromolecule that does not form part of the membrane structure
The molecules that forms the main hydrophobic core of a cell membrane
The general term for processes that bring macromolecules, particles, and small cells into another cell
A solution that has a higher concentration of solutes than than the solution on the other side of a membrane
Small molecules, large number of which are linked together to make macromolecules.
The monomers of DNA and RNA:
The monomers of proteins:
Monomers of carbohydrates
A polysaccharide used for cellular structure rather than energy storage like other carbohydrates
A highly branched polysaccharide use by animals for cellular energy storage
Nucleotides that have two nitrogen-containing ringed bases fused together.
basic building blocks of neucleic acid.
A class of macromolecules that play an important role both in energy storage and in forming cell membranes
The material enclosed withing the membrane of the cell but outside the nucleus, including liquid, dissolved solutes and insoluble particles such as ribosomes
The non-membrane bound organelles responsible for protein synthesis
The place in a cell where DNA is transcribed into RNA during gene expression.
The place where ribosomes are assembled from RNA and proteins
Small membrane-bound droplets that shuttle materials among members of the endomembrane system and other parts of the cell
The site for synthesis of lipids and steroids
The site for most chemical modification and detoxification of small molecules in a cell
A meshwork of fibers inside a cell that functions in structure, transport and movement of a cell.
The ability of many cytoskeleton fibers to regularly and rapidly engage in various types of modifications.
Tough, highly branched cytoskeleton fibers that are not regularly modified or moved that resist tension in a cell.
Long, hollow fibers that act as a framework to allow vesicle transport within a cell.
A meshwork of proteins and carbohydrates found outside animal cells that helps hold groups of cells together.
carrier proteins work by binding to one molecule of solute at a time and transporting it with the solute gradien
an integral membrane protein that is involved in movement of two or more different molecules or ions across a phospholipid membrane
an integral membrane protein involved in secondary active transport of two or more different molecules or ions
