The movement of all types of molecules across a cell membrane from a region of low concentration to high concentration, using energy.
The power house.
An opening into which Receptor mediated exocytosis, Pinocytosis, and phago cytosis, enter the cell.
Pumps sodium out of cells while pumping potassium into cells.
A process of cellular ingestion where the plasma membrane folds inward to bring substances into the cell.
The opening that takes in water/fluid.
The opening that takes in solids. PhagocytosisThe opening that takes in proteins.
Receptor mediated exocytosis+
The movement through the cell.
Cell-division cycle, a series of events that lead to the division and
duplication of a cell to produce two daughter cells .
The division of the nucleus.
Comes after Mitosis, The division of the cytoplasm.
The period of the cell cycle during which the nucleus is not undergoing division.
The first stage of mitosis in cell division, during which the nuclear
membrane breaks down and the the strands of chromatin form into
The stage in cell division when the duplicated chromosomes become aligned in the center of the cell, comes after prophase.
After Metaphase, the stage of mitosis where the chromosomes move to opposite ends of the nucleus spindle.
The final stage of mitosis during which the chromosomes of the daughter
cells are grouped in new nuclei TelophaseThe process by which cells or
tissues undergo a change toward a more specialized form or function.
An undifferentiated cell that gives rise to specialized cells, such
as blood cells.
A biological cell like a stem cell, it has a tendency to
differentiate into a specific type of cell, but already more specific
then a stem cell.
Means it is capable of differentiating into different types of body cells.
The programmed death of an organisms cells as part of its natural growth and development.
