Card Set Information
Def of a cell
structural and functional unit of life.
varible in apperance and funtion
otter shell of the cell
filters, receptors, mantains an electrical gradient
in plasma membrane, self assembed
hydrophilc and hydrophobic
in bilayer of plasma membrane
works as channles and pumps. serves as a receptor
exsists outside of bilayer in plasma membrane and IN the cell. strengthens bilayer and makes enzymes
in plasma membrane, stiff/waxy material
strengthens the bilayer
brain of the cell, contains genetic inheritance, controls everyday activities by controlling organs and functions
dna ACTIVE form
made of DNA and protiens, dark, used for cell division.
different from chromosomes
everything between nuclear membrane and plasma membrane.
Make protien used INSIDE the cell
stuck to er.
make protien and are sent elsewhere
ribosomes stuck on it, makes protiens for transport
no protiens, makes lipids and carbs
acts as a cellular
packaging and transport
provides usable energy for the cell in for of ATP. Makes ATP.
membrane sac with digestive enzymes
kills invading organisms for protection
digest food particles and worn out organells.
special enzymes that break down hydrogen peroxide with catalase
breaks down protiens
solid rods of actin
participate in muscle contractions
larger rods of protien, prevents tearing and creates muscle contractions
hollow rods of protien tubuen
moves substances over cell surface
participate im cell division
hairs that move substances
help move sperm
used during cell division
helps form the mitotic spindle
