The lack of this is the primary trait for the Eubacteria and the Archeabacteria; the presence of this is the primary trait of the Eucarya
a storage site for molecules of r-RNA; upon decompsition its r-RNA molecules become/ procuce ribosomes
Composed of DNA nucleotides and genes; controls the prosess of transcription and replication and the prosess of translation, mitosis, and meiosis indirectly
composed of a variety of actin microfilements, tubulin microtubles and vimentu, and myosin fibers; has contractile properties; is involved in the contractiona and extention of muscle fibers; serves as an attachment site for enzyme systems; is attached to the plasmalemma by peripheral proteins; controls cell shape and motility
has its own circular plasmid composed if DNA genes; can self replicate; originally was heterotrophic prokaryote involved in endosymbiosis; controls the Krebs Cycle and glycolysis; has cristae and stroma, has porphyrin ring molecules each with an FE core; uses glucose and oxygen, produces carbon dioxide water and ATP, in the presnece of ATP synthesis and produces ATP by the process of chemiososis
Has its own circular plasmid composed of DNA genes, can self replicate, was origanally autotrophic prokaryote involved in endosymbiosis; has porphyrin ring moleces each with a Mg core; controls photolysis and the Calvin Cycle, produces glucose and oxygen, uses carbon dioxide, water and ATP, in the prcess of ATP synthesis, and produces ATP by the process of chemiosmosis
Basal Body
composed of 9 triplets of microtubules; serves as an attachment site of a cillium or a flagellum to the plasmalema and cytoplasm
Has their own circular plasmid composed of DNA genes; can self replicate; is composed of the 9 arrangment of microtubules; was origanilly a prokaryotic bacterium involved in endosymbiosis
in neurons, is composed of phospholipids and the 6 major kinds of protien molecules; it controls the production of an action protential and the electrochemical transmistion of an impules
in animal and protozoan cells, it controlls the endocytosis of cellsand liquids that leads to the formation of food vacuoles; it controls the exocytosis of wate particles and the secretion of enzymes and hormones; has a phospholipid bilayer with attached glycoproteins and glycolipids that is impermeable to polar hydrophilic molucles and ions and permeable to non-polar hydrophobic molecules
in arthropod bodieds is composed of chitin molecules (invertebrates)
in muscle fibers it is composed of phospholipids with the 6 major kinds or protien molecules
Protein molecule that forms the "thick microfilements" and the "thing microfliments" of the cytoskeleton of a mscle fiber
Protein molecule that forms the protein fibers of epithelial cells in vertebrates and the protien fibers of nails hair claws and scales
Protien molecule that forms the microtubules of the cytoskeleton basal body centrioles cilium and flagellum
the skeleton of vertabrate animals
Protien molecule that forms the intermediate fibers of the cytoskeleton
Adhesion and peripheral
the kind of protein molecule that attaches the cytoskeleton to the plasmalemma
