Cell

a.1 Eukaryotic Cell vs Prokaryotic Cell All cells can be classfied into prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Prokaryotes were the only form of life on Earth for millions of years until more complicated eukaryotic cells came into being through the process of evolution. Comparison chart All attributes  Differences Similarities | Eukaryotic Cell | Prokaryotic Cell | Nucleus: | Present | Absent | Number of chromosomes: | More than one | One--but not true chromosome: Plasmids | Cell Type: | Multicellular...

Cells

Cells are considered the basic units of life in part because they come in discrete and easily recognizable packages. That's because all cells are surrounded by a structure called the cell membrane. The cell is the very smallest unit of living matter. All living things including plants and animals are made up of cells. Cells are made of atoms, which are the smallest units of matter. There are many different kinds of cells. The two kinds you are most likely to be familiar with are animal and plant...

Cells

correct. High Power should show only a couple of cells that take up most of the viewing field. The micoscope is designed to view the slide at different spots, so not all drawings will look like this one. Images were snipped from the virtual microscope's flash animation. Scanning (4) | Low (10) | High (40) | 3. Go to google and type "cheek cells" into the search box. Click on "images" to see all the images google has found on the web showing cheek cells (there should be hundreds). What do all of...

Cells and Their Parts

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...

Cell Structure

(Hint: those buried deep in the cell probably do different things than those closer to the cell membrane). Structure does not affect function of the cells, cells have a particular structure that enables them to carry out their function in the best way. 2. Draw a labeled diagram of a small section of the plasma membrane and briefly describe its structure and function. 3. Describe the difference between the animal and plant cells. Plant Cells have cell walls, which makes them appear rectangular...

Bone Cell

support, move, and protect the body; they also give us our features. But without bone cells we would have no bones. Bone cells are the living units that make up your bones and keep them functioning. Bone cells have two major roles, which are the production of new bones and resorption or destruction of old bone. They also carry out other small roles. There are four main types of bone cells: Osteogenic, which are bone cells that respond to traumas, osteoblasts, which form bone matrix around themselves by...

The Cell Theory

The CELL THEORY, or cell doctrine, states that all organisms are composed of similar units of organization, called cells. The concept was formally articulated in 1839 by Schleiden & Schwann and has remained as the foundation of modern biology. The idea predates other great paradigms of biology including Darwin's theory of evolution (1859), Mendel's laws of inheritance (1865), and the establishment of comparative biochemistry (1940). Ultrastructural research and modern molecular biology have...

Cell City

The cell functions much in the way a city does. Although it may be an old analogy, it may be one of the best. Following is a list of cell parts and how their function is similar to functions of a city or town. The cell membrane is the city limits of our city. Outside of the city limits, the local government has no jurisdiction, but inside those limits, people are subject to the “laws of the land”. The nucleus – This is the place where direction is given and DNA is sent from. This would...

The Prokaryotic Cell

The prokaryotic cell precedes any forms of Bacteria, Archaea, and eventually Eukaryotes by approximately two billion years. This cell was the original life form on the planet and represents the smallest and least complex of all organisms. Through the process of mutation and adaptation they were able to survive to evolve into our modern day Bacteria, Archaea, Fungi and Protists. These post organisms have benefited from their early ancestor, by way of Endosymbiosis. Intricate protest and fungi are...
