Anabolism is process of building up large proteins from small proteins pieces called amino acids.Ana- means up, bol means to cast, -ism is a process
Catabolism is process whereby complex nutrients are broken down to simpler substances and energy released.Cata- means down, bol means to cast, and -ism is a process
What isCell Membrane?
Cell Membrane is a structure surrounding and protecting the cell. it determines what enters and leaves the cell.
Chromosomes is a rod-shaped structures in the nucleus that contains regions of DNA called genes. There are 46 chromosomes (23 pairs) in every cell except the egg and sperm cells, which contain only 23 individual, unpaired chromosomes.
Cytoplasm is an all material that is outside the nucleus and yet contained within the cell membrane.
DNA is a chemical found within each chromosome. Arranged like a sequence of recipes in code, it directs the activities of the cell.
What isEndoplasmic Reticulum?
Endoplasm Reticulum is a network of canals within the cytoplasm of the cell. Here, large proteins are made from small protein pieces.
Genes are a regions of DNA within each chromosome.
Karyotype is a picture of chromosomes in the nucleus of the cell. The chromosomes are arranged in numerical order to determine their number and structure.
Metabolism is a total of the chemical process in a cell. It includes catabolism and anabolism.meta-meanschange, bolmeansto cast, and-ismmeansa process.
Mitochondria is a structures in the cytoplasm that provide the principal source of energy (miniature "power plants")for the cell. Catabolismis the process that occurs in mitochondria.(from the Greek mitos meaning thread, and chondrion meaning granule.)
Nucleus are the control center of the cell. It contains chromosomes and directs the activities of the cell.
What is aCell?
Cell is the fundamental unit of all living things (animal or plant).
collection of fat cells
flexible connective tissue attached to bones at joints. for example, it surrounds the trachea and forms past of external ear and nose
skin cells that cover the outside of the body and line the internal surfaces of organs.
specialist in the study of tissues
"voice box", located at the upper part of the trachea
throat. the pharynx serves as the common passageway for food (from the mouth going to the esophagus)and air (from the nose to the trachea).
endocrine gland at the base of the brain.
endocrine gland that surrounds the trachea in the neck.
"windpipe" (tube leading from the throat to the bronchial tube).
one of two tubes, each leading from a single kidney to the urinary bladder. (Spelling clue: ureter has two e's, and there are two ureters.)
tube from the urinary bladder to the outside of the body. (urethra has one e, and there is only one urethra).
the womb. the organ that holds the embryo/fetus as it develops
