FC: CELLS By: Carl Harvey, and Delwin Young

1: Cell Theory | A principle that describes the cell as the fundamental unit of all living organisms. A principle that describes the properties of an organism as the sum of the properties or its component cells.

2: Robert Hooke | He discovered the cell wall in the plant cell while looking in a cork.

3: MAtthias Schleiden | He discovered different parts of the plant are composed of cells or diversities of cells

4: Rudolph Virchow | He figured out cells are made from other cells

5: Theodor Schwann | He verified existence of cells`

6: Prokaryotic Vs Eukaryotic cells. | Prokaryote- is a single celled organism that lacks a nucleus and other internal compartments. Eukaryote- is an organism whose cells have a nucleus.

7: Animal cells Vs plant cells | Animal cells- like all eukaryote cells, animal cells contain a cell membrane, a nucleus, and other organelles. Plant cells- plant cells have a cell wall, chloroplast, and a large central vacuole, and also have all the other organelles animal cells have.

8: Ten Cell Structures. | 1.Lysosome- transports undigested material to cell membrane for removal. the cell breaks down if lysosome explodes. 2.Ribosome- are the cellular structure on which proteins are made. 3.Chloroplast-are organelles that use light energy to make carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water. 4.Rough endoplasmic reticulum-helps transport protein. 5. Cilia- is simialair to flagella in the sense that it helps with movement in eukaryotic calls & also sicks from said cell. 6. Flagella- are long like structures that protrude from the cells surface and enable movement. 7.Nucleus- it controls all the activities and functions within the cell and is also where genetic informations stored. 8.Central vacuole- it stores water and may contain many substances such as ions, nutrients, etc... 9. Golgi Apparatus- They serve as the packaging and distribution center of a cell. 10. Cell wall- Provides support to the plant cell.

9: Cell Membrane | A phospholipid layer that covers a cell's surface and acts as a barrier between the inside of a cell and the cell's environment.

10: Homeostasis | - The tendency of a system to maintain internal stability, owing to the coordinated response of its parts to any situation or stimulus that would tend to disturb its normal condition or function.
