The flashcards below were created by user aphy101 on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. Movement of molecules against a concentration gradient; requires energy
    active transport
  2. Important in cellular structures (has hydrophobic and hydrophilic ends)
    phospholipid
  3. Area between higher concentration and lower concentration where molecule passes through
    gate/channel
  4. Transports sodium ions out of cells and potassium ions into cells
    Na/K pump
  5. Molecules or other particles that are too large to enter a cell by diffusion or active transport are conveyed in a vesicle that forms a section of a cell membrane
    endocytosis
  6. Form of endocytosis where cells take in tiny droplets of liquid from their surroundings
    pinocytosis
  7. Form of endocytosis where cells take in solids
    phagocytosis
  8. Moves specific types of particles into the cell
    receptor mediated endocytosis
  9. Combines endocytosis and exocytosis to selectively and rapidly transport a substance or particle from one end of a cell to the other
    transcytosis
  10. Series of changes that a cell undergoes from the time it forms until it divides
    cell cycle
  11. Form of cell division (division of the nucleus)
    mitosis
  12. Division of the cytoplasm
    cytokinesis
  13. Cell grows and maintains its routine functions as well as contributions to the internal environment
    interphase
  14. Chromatin fibers condense, making individual chromosomes visible
    prophase
  15. Spindle fibers attach to centromeres so that a fiber accompanying one chromatid attaches to one centromere
    metaphase
  16. Centromeres of the chromatids separate, and identical chromatids are now considered individual chromosomes
    anaphase
  17. Chromosomes complete their migration towards centrioles by beginning to elongate and unwind from rodlike structures into threadlike structures
    telophase
  18. Process of specialization (cell division explains how a fertilized egg develops into an individual consisting of trillion of cells, of at least 260 specialized types)
    differentiation
  19. Ability to divide repeatedly (into two daughters cells-one stem cell and one partially specialized) which enables the body to grow and injuries to heal (self-renewal)
    stem cell
  20. Partly specialized cell that is the daughter of a stem cell but is intermediate between a stem cell and a fully differentiated cell
    progenitor cell
  21. Daughter cells can follow any of several pathways, but not all of them
    pluripotent
  22. Form of cell death that is programmed because it is a normal part of development
    apoptosis
