    Endocytosis Synthesis

    ) for the media with the control and latrunculin compound. We estimated the average by dividing the number cells by five. Different groups were assigned different time, at time 0, some groups have observed no signs of latrunculin on phagocytosis occurring, whereas the control group having only the DSMO had some macrophages carrying phagocytosis. At 15 minutes, both control plate and latrunculin plate had phagocytosis occurring while at 30minutes the data showed phagocytosis occurring in both cell plate. Previous research has shown that Latrunculin A affects the polymerization of actin disrupting the organization of the cytoskeleton (microfilaments) which are important for the complete engulfment of particles and their release into the cytoplasm as an early endosome or phagosome (Coue, Brenner, 1987). The results didn’t disprove the importance of latrunculin A on phagocytosis to occur. But the data showed phagocytosis taking place at a faster rate at 15 to 30 minutes incubation time. Discussion It is becoming clear that some compounds can alter bacterial uptake during phagocytosis. It has been shown that latrunculin A affects the polymerization of pure actin in vitro with the formation of a 1:1 molar complex between latrunculin A and G-actin (Coue, Brenner 1987). Latrunculin A is used extensively as an agent to remove monomeric actin in living cells. More research can be tailored to understand more about the processes by which compounds affect phagocytosis. Because of the…

    One of the viruses that extend in massive areas of the world, and compel the scientists to look again for this virus is a ZIKA virus. As a result of the rapid prevalence of a ZIKA virus in Asia, Africa and America, it classifies now as an emerging virus, on the other hand, the lack of biological research leads to Increasing the cases of ZIKV in the world. This project sheds light on the mystery novel that allows ZIKV invasion and infection the host cells. A penetration process of ZIKA virus…

    membranes within the cytoplasm of the cell, occurring either with a smooth surface (smooth endoplasmic reticulum) or studded with ribosomes (rough endoplasmic reticulum) involved in the transport of materials. Nucleus- a dense organelle present in most eukaryotic cells, typically a single rounded structure bounded by a double membrane, containing the genetic material (Contains: nuclear pore, nucleolus, nucleoplasm, and nuclear envelope) Golgi Apparatus- a complex of vesicles and folded…

    Transport of proteins into the nucleus occurs via a channel called nuclear pore complex (NPC), which penetrates and spans the nuclear envelope, a double membrane that separates the nucleus from the cytoplasm. The outer nuclear membrane is continuous with the endoplasmic reticulum, hence giving a shorter pathway for proteins to enter the nucleus; inner nuclear membrane contains proteins acting as binding site for nuclear lamina, indirectly providing support for the NPC as the primary function of…

    cell membrane which is sometimes called plasma membrane is found in the cytoplasm (jelly-like substance inside the cell) and its function is to protect the cell by allowing certain substances into the cell and also keeping other unwanted substances out. The cell membrane also serves as a support to the cell and helps maintain its shape. The cell is made up of a mix of protein and lipid. The lipid helps to give membranes their flexibility and the protein which helps in the transfer of molecules…

    Inside the membrane there are parts of the cell called the organelles. (Animal Cell Structure, 2005) Organelles inside the cell have specific jobs to perform for the cell, organelles include the ribosomes, vacuoles, centrioles, lysosomes, peroxisomes, cilia, flagella, mitochondria and the endoplasmic reticulum. In addition there are also three main components to any cell. These include the cell membrane, cytoplasm and nucleus. The most common fluid inside the cell is the cytoplasm. The cytoplasm…

    Cell: The nucleus controls and stores genetic material. It manages the cells activities for reproduction, growth and metabolising processes. Nucleolus situated internally in the nucleus its core purpose is to make proteins for ribosomes and synthesise RNA. The nuclear membrane is a double phosoplipid bilayer surrounding the nucleus its key role is to separate nucleic fluid from cell fluid (cytoplasm). Mitochondria or mitochondrion are 0.5 to 1.0mm in size and are located within the…

    others. The cytoplasm is the fluid within each individual cell that surrounds the organelles. This is the 'place' where the organelles complete their individual tasks. The Rough Endoplasmic(RER) Reticulm is a part of a series of connected 'hallways' that carry materials to various parts of the cytoplasm. The RER has many ribosomes attached to it and it is tasked with creating proteins. The Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum(SER) is also a part of connected 'hallways that transport materials.…

    after RNA transcription, and in the cytoplasm both before and after translation. Histones are small proteins packed inside the molecular structure of the DNA double helix. Tight histone packing stops RNA polymerase from contacting and transcribing the DNA. This type of over control of protein synthesis is regulated by genes that control the packing density of histones. Activator-enhancer complex is unique in eukaryotes because they normally have to be activated to begin protein synthesis, which…
