FC: 10 | Ten Reasons Why We Love Cells

1: Ten Reasons Why We Love Cells

2: Cell Theory We love you, cell theory, because you tell us that all living things are made from one or more cells, you show us that cells are the basic parts of structure and function in organisms, and you open our eyes to the fact that all cells arise from existing cells.

3: Matthias Jakob Schleider Matthias, we we love thee because you were a German botanist and you concluded that all plant tissues were composed of cells. You also discovered that an embryonic plant arose from a single cell, declaring the cell as the "Building Block" of all plant matter.

4: Theodor Schwann We love you, Theodor Schwann, because you reached the same conclusions as Schleiden about animal tissue being composed of cells. You also created and stated the three principles of our beloved cell theory. That, Mr, Schwann, is why we love you. | 2

5: Rudolph Virchow We love you, Rudolph, because you were the first to demonstrate that the cell theory applies to diseased tissue as well as healthy tissue. You also concluded that diseased cells derive from healthy cells | 3

6: 4 | Robert Hooke Robert, you fulfill the desires of our hearts because you discovered the honey come like structure of cells in a simple cork slice, using just your primitive compound microscope. Robert, you are simply amazing.

7: Prokaryotic Cells We love you cells because you lack a membrane-bound nucleus. Instead of having chromosonic DNA, prokaryotic you have circular loop called a plasmid. The plasmid stores all of your genetic information. In addition, instead of going through elaborate steps to reproduce and replicate, you divide using binary fission. You serve as decomposers, and help restore nitrate in plants in the nitrogen cycle. You even play a role in the human digestive system. (Ex. Bacteria, Cyanobacteria, Bacillus Bacteria, E. coli Bacterium, and Salmonella Bacterium)

8: 5 | We love you, eukaryotic cells because you make up all of the life kingdoms except monera, which is made up of prokaryotes. Unlike prokaryotic cells, you eukaryotes have a membrane-bound nucleus, in other words, the nucleus is contained inside of your membrane. You also have membrane-bound organelles such as mitochondrion, lysosome, endoplasmic reticulum, and even a nucleulus. (Ex. red blood cells, white blood cells, and plant cells.)

9: "Only our love for cells can be divided endlessly, and still not diminish."

10: 6 | Plant vs. Animal Cells- Though you are both considered eukaryotes, you differ in many ways. For example, you, animal cell, your hair-like cylia is almost ALWAYS present in your own cells but rarely present in plant cells. In addition, because plants make their own food, they contain an organelle named chloroplasts to aid in the process, but you, animal cells do not contain this organelle. Plant cells have a central vacuole that takes up 90% of its volume, but animal cells have one or more small vacuoles scattered throughout the cell. However, though you are different in many ways, you do share similarities. You both have nuclei, cytoplasm, endoplasmic reticulum, ribosomes, mitochondria, and golgi apparatus.

11: Cells <3

12: 7 | We love you, cell membrane, because you are a flexible, lipid bilayer that surrounds and protects every type of cell. You also act to retain helpful substances, but mus importantly, you exclude harmful substances and allow glucose to pass through the cells. You know i can't retain my love when you show your proteins that span through your membrane and allow passage of materials. | "A life without cells is no life at all."

13: Homeostasis, we love how you have a tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements. We also love how you can help maintain an organism's internal state of balance, even though the hardships of the outside environment are constantly changing. An example of this beauty of yours is when a body heats its temperature in order to kill off viruses, and then returns to regular temperature to maintain homeostasis

14: 8 | Cell Wall- We love thee because you risk thy life to protect a plant cell. Thus, we show our gratitude. | Golgi Apparatus- You are fill our hearts because you are a set of flattened membrane bound sacs that serve as the packaging and distribution center of the cell. With these amazing features, you make and package materials to be transported out of the cell.

15: 9 | 9 | Nucleolus- We adore thee because you are the center of the nucleus and you contain genetic information. In addition, you also produce ribosomes. | Centrioles- We love you because you are a structure of 3 fused micro tubules arranged in a star shape and you generate the cell's cytoskeleton, a system of microtubules and microfilaments wich run all through cells.

16: Ribosomes- We love you because there are thousands of you in each cell, you are considered miniature protein factories, and you compose 25% of cell's mass. Stationary ribosomes are embedded in rough endoplasmic reticulum while the mobile type move, and inject proteins directly into cytoplasm.

17: 10 | Chromosomes- We love you, chromosomes because you are usually in the form of chromatin. Composed of DNA, you contain valuable genetic information. You have a number of species, specifically 23 for humans.

18: Chloroplasts- We adore you because you are a plastid usually found in plant cells and you contain green chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes place. This is why you are beautiful. | Cytoskeleton- We love you because you are composed of microtubules, you support the cell and provide its shape, and you aid movement of materials in and out of cells.

20: Lysosome- We love you because you are the digestive center for proteins, lipids, and carbs, you transport undigested material to cell membrane for removal, and you vary in shape depending on process being carried out. And cells can't live without you, for they would break down if you explode, just like i would.

21: Mitochondria- we love you because you are the second largest organelle and you have unique genetic structure. You have a double-layered outer membranewith inner folds called cristae, where energy-producing reactions take place, you control the water lever and other materials in the cell, and you recycle and decompose proteins, fats,and carbohydrates.
