The bodies of humans, animals, or even plants are very complex; it has infinitely many functions. These functions are carried out by organs; all organs in the body operate in a choreograph manner that keeps the body in a healthy state. If these functions decide to fail, life cannot be sustained. With that said, without the body’s secret ingredients the organs and the functions they carry out will cease to exist. These secret ingredient are known as cells—the fundamental unit of life. Cells are essential to sustaining life; ironically it is the smallest living unit in the body. It has numerous functions in and of its self. In this paper, we will discuss some of the functions within a cell, specifically eukaryotic cell.
Initially, let’s talk about the nucleus and the functions it carries out. The nucleus is an organelle within the cell; it is also referred to as the control center or the brain of the cell. The nucleus is arguably the most integral function within the cell. Within the nucleus, there are numerus structures which include, but are not limited to, nucleolus, nuclear envelope, and chromatin. First we have the nucleolus, the nucleolus sits in the middle of the nucleus; it produces ingredients which help produce ribosomes. Ribosomes generate proteins within the cells, and proteins are pertinent to the basic function of the cell. Second we have the nuclear envelope (nuclear membrane), this is a membrane that surrounds the nucleus. The envelope has an inner membrane and…
