Campbell Biology: Chapter 6 Test Prep Flashcards
Essential Features Common to all cells
- Plasma membrane
- Region containing DNA
Used to to help cell swim also sensory organelle sensitive to chemicals and temperatures outside of cell. (Prokaryotic)
Used for attachment to different surfaces. (Prokaryotic)
region where cell's DNA is located. (Prokaryotic)
Focus on beam of electrons through the specimen or onto its surface.
complexes that synthesizes proteins (series of chemical reactions)
enclosing the cytoplasm, acts as a selective barrier that allows passage of enough oxygen, nutrients, and waste to service the entire cell.
Jelly-like fluid that fills up the cell. made up of mostly salt and water. holds all of the cells internal parts together.
Jelly-like outer coating of many prokaryotes. protects cell from engulfment.
carries genes in the form of DNA.
Lacking a true nucleus and the other membrane- enclosed organelles of the eukaryotic cell.
Contains most of the genes in the eukaryotic cell.
Some genes are located in _______ and _______.
Mitochondria and chloroplast.
Not in all animal cells:
Protein network that underlies in the evolope (makes the nucleus tough).
