  • Cell Metabolism And Cell Mitosis
    633 words
    The life Process of a cell In my report you will learn about the life process of a cell based on the two main functions, metabolism and mitosis. You will learn about the four stages of metabolism: ingestion, digestion, respiration, and excretion, and how the cell completes them. You also will acquire information about the four stages of mitosis: prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase, and how the cell completes them. Mitosis is the process in which cells reproduce. These two processes are ...
  • Plant Cell And The Animal Cell
    391 words
    Cells Cells are the basic unit of all life. Even though they are the smallest unit of life they are highly complex. Each cell has enough parts to it to practically survive on its own. There are two types of cells; the plant cell and the animal cell. These two cells do not vary intensely, but there are some major factors that separate them completely. Animal cells are highly organized. The many parts that make up the cell work in sync h with each other. These parts are called organelles. The most...
  • Certain Molecules Across Cell Membranes
    726 words
    The Cell Theory The cell theory states that all living matter is made up of cells and some living organisms consist of a single cell. Other cells serve a special purpose within advanced organisms like nerve cells. One theory of a cell states that the first form of life on this earth consisted of a lot of different types of small proto cells. Proto cells are cell like organism. These organisms were able to reproduce in a very limited environment because they are so simple. After many years some o...
  • Biological Cell Membrane
    440 words
    In the early stages of the twentieth century, little was known about cell membranes. Until the early 1950's, the biological cell membrane was rarely mentioned in scientific literature. It was recognised that something was probably there, but hardly anything about it was known. Considering the lack of technical equipment available a century ago, scientists such as Charles Overton and Edwin Gorter were not only exploring new territory in looking at the properties of cell membranes, but laying the ...

  • Plant And Animal Eukaryotic Cells
    3,729 words
    Comparison of Plant and Animal Cells Introduction Eukaryotic cells are very complex; there are many organelles, each serving a distinct function, present in eukaryotic cells. We can divide the eukaryotic group of cells in to two main groups, according to the presence of these membrane bound organelles, and the structural differences amongst the cells and their organelles. The two groups of eukaryotic cells are plant and animal cells. Nucleus The reason that plant and animal cells are not divided...
  • Proteins In The Cell Membrane
    4,687 words
    Cells are the basic living units of all plants and animals. The cell is the structural and functional unit of all living organisms. There are a wide variety of cell types, such as nerve, muscle, bone, fat, and blood cells. Each cell type has many characteristics, which are important to the normal function of the body as a whole. One of the important reasons for maintaining hemostasis is to keep the trillions of cells that form the body functioning normally. An averaged size cell is one-fifth the...
  • Difference Between Prokaryotic And Eukaryotic Cells
    1,115 words
    Cells and Cell Theory What advantages does small size give to a cell? Many cellular processes occur by diffusion, which is efficient over short distances, but less efficient over long distances. Since all materials going in and out of a cell must pass through the plasma membrane, the greater the surface area of this membrane, the faster a given quantity of molecules can pass through. Smaller cells have a much greater surface-to-volume ratio than larger cells and therefore can 'feed' all areas of...
  • Plants The Cell Membrane
    771 words
    Cells are some of the smallest organisms around. All living things consist of cells, and yet they are invisible to the naked eye. Cells are the basic structural and functional units of life. Cells are made up of many different parts which allow them to function properly. All cells are separated from their surrounding by a cell membrane. The cell membrane regulates what enters and leaves the cell and also aids in the protection and support of the cell. A cell membrane is similar to the walls surr...
  • Plasma Membrane And Other Cell
    1,201 words
    Damn Near Everything There Is To Know About Cells: Biology Cell Report There are many parts of a cell, they all have specific duties, and are all needed to continue the life of the cell. Some cells exist as single-celled organisms that perform all of the organism's metabolism within a single cell. Such single-celled organisms are called unicellular. Other organisms a remade up of many cells, with their cells specialized to perform distinct metabolic functions. One cell within an organism may be ...

  • Substances Across The Cell Membrane
    931 words
    Homeostasis is essential to the cell's survival. The cell membrane is responsible for homeostasis. The membrane has a selective permeability which means what moves in and out of the cell is regulated. Amino acids, sugars, oxygen, sodium, and potassium are examples of substances that enter the cell. Waste products and carbon dioxide are removed from the cell. All of these substances cross the membrane in a variety of ways. From diffusion and osmosis, to active transport the traffic through the ce...
  • Cell Membrane Size
    877 words
    The Plant Cell Cell Wall Size: Around 1 u Basic Function: Hold the shape of the cell. Strengthen the cell. Covering the cell membrane of the plant cell, there is the cell wall. The cell wall is composed of two layers of rigid, hard cellulose embedded in compounds like pectin and lignin. Pores in the cell wall allow molecules to pass through. The cell wall has two parts. The primary cell wall is formed during the growth of the cell. After the cell has stopped growing, a secondary cell wall forms....

  • Vacuole And Membrane Of The Cell
    930 words
    Cell membranes are involved in the transport of various substances within cells, and use several processes by which they carry out their functions. All cells acquire the molecules and ions they need through their plasma membranes. In eukaryotic cells, there is also transport in and out of membrane-bounded organelles such as the nucleus, ER, and mitochondria. One of these types of cellular transport is osmosis. Osmosis is the diffusion of water from a region of high water concentration to a low w...
