    structures of the cell that are important for the cell to survive. Each organelle has a specific function for the cell. The types of organelles in the cell can be different from each other depending on the type of cell. Plant cells and animal cells both have a cytoskeleton, endoplasmic reticulum (smooth and rough), golgi apparatus, mitochondrion, nucleus, plasma membrane, and ribosomes. Animal and plant cells also have vacuoles, but they are rarely found in animal cells. Vacuoles in animal cells are very

    Animal cells and their functions Cell Membrane The cell “surface” membrane is a semi-permeable membrane whose function is to control the exchange of substances between the cell and its environment. Semi-permeable means that only certain molecules are allowed to be transported in and out of the cell. The membrane is mainly made up of Lipid and protein. On the diagram, the Cell Membrane forms the “outer shell” of the animal cell, and can be seen as the bold line around it. Nucleus The Nucleus has a

    trillions of cells” (Gottschling). Cells are important because “it helps understand how organisms, including humans function” (Gottschling). Most people have the knowledge that every cell that are in life have difference function. Yet, they don’t know what they are. This essay is going to focus on listing and explaining the differences between animal, plant, and bacteria cells. Animal cells are “eukaryotic cells, or cells with a membrane-bound nucleus (Bailey). This cell contains three cells out seven

    For a plant cell, the nucleus, without a doubt, is the most important organelle; but in the animal cell, the most vital structure is the mitochondria. First of all, the most important structure in the animal cell is the mitochondria. The mitochondria is the vital because it provides energy for the cell (Doc. 2). For example, without the mitochondria, organelles would function slowly because the cell has no energy (OI). In Document 3, it states “Breaking down the food and releasing’ energy” (Doc

    Without cells no living creature would be able to function: that is why cells are so important in our life. Cells help us maintain homeostasis and keep our genetic code in the nucleus. They also make up our tissues which make organs and work together in organ systems. So without cells the human race and the beautiful things on earth wouldn't exist. To perform functions in the body there is cell specialization to do certain tasks. Each cells is made up of many different organelles to help

    Animal cells are the ‘cell factories for the production of complex biomolecules and antibodies for use as prophylactics, diagnostics or therapeutics’.Culturing of immortalized animal cell, also called cell lines is generally performed under define temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide flux in lab condition. Such in in-vitro culturing of animal cells may be performed under two different conditions viz. on solid surfaces (anchorage dependent cells) or in suspension (non-anchorage dependent cells)

    find out what was going on. Even though I’m only 15, I was pretty good at driving. I drove around the cell and saw a bunch of different things I had only seen in my science book. “That’s what a ribosome is, Oh.” I said to myself. Some of the other cell parts doing their jobs would turn to me and laugh. I was so confused; I had no idea what I was doing or where I was going. I just ignored those cell parts though and kept on going. After a while of driving around, I got scared that I would never be
