Cell structure


The structures of animal cells and plant cells
The structures of animal cells and plant cells

  • Cell is the basic unit of life.

  • There are more than 200 types of cells in our body.

  • The shape and size of cells vary, but some features are common to all.


Electron microscope
Electron microscope

  • The first electron microscope prototype was built in 1931 by the German engineers


  • Electron microscopes have much greater resolving power than light microscopes that use electromagnetic radiation and can obtain much higher magnifications of up to 2 million times, while the best light microscopes are limited to magnifications of 2000 times.





Cell membrane
Cell membrane

  • It is selectively permeable.

  • It controls the movement of substances into and out of the cell.

  • Different organelles exist within the cytoplasm.


Nucleus
Nucleus

  • Nuclear membrane

    • double layer with many pores

    • pores allow exchange of materials between the nucleus and the cytoplasm.


Nucleus1
Nucleus

  • Chromatin

    • includes coils of DNA and histones


Nucleus2
Nucleus

  • Nucleoplasm

    • contains chromatin, nucleolus, proteins, nucleotides.


Nucleus3
Nucleus

  • Nucleolus

    • synthesis of ribosomal RNA.


Nucleus4
Nucleus

  • The nucleus contains the genetic material DNA, which stores information used to synthesisproteins .

  • The nucleus is surrounded by a double membrane, called the nuclear membrane .


  • Nuclear pores serve as the pathways for the exchange of the materials between the nucleus and the cytoplasm.

  • Nucleoli (singular: nucleolus) are involved in making ribosomes.



  • They are the places where aerobic respiration occurs.

  • Generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) as a immediate source of energy.

  • Mitochondria have a double membrane.

  • The inner membrane, where most ATP is made, is highly folded. This greatly increases the surface area for ATP production.



  • Chloroplastsare oval-shaped organelles commonly found in plant cells.

  • Chloroplasts, like mitochondria, have a double membrane.

  • Internal membranes contain the green photosynthetic pigmentchlorophyll, which absorbs light energy to make food through the process of photosynthesis.


Vacuoles
Vacuoles

  • A vacuole is a liquid-filled space within the cytoplasm, surrounded by a membrane called the tonoplast.

  • Plant cells usually have a large central vacuole, which stores water, other useful substances and wastes.


Cell wall
Cell Wall

  • It consists of cellulose fibres embedded in a polysaccharide matrix.

  • Plant cells are surrounded by cell walls.

  • Protects plant cells and gives them shape.
