Diffusion and Osmosis: Molecules like alcohol, water, small lipids Facilitated Diffusion: Some Ions, Glucose, salts Active transport: (energy required) Sodium –Potassium pump Na (out) K (in) Movement of the cell membrane: Phagocytosis, Exocytosis, Pynocytosis Nucleus: Controls most cell processes and contains hereditary information (DNA) Chromatin : DNA (in its uncoiled form) + proteins (histones) Nucleolus: sites of assembly of ribosomes Nuclear envelope: double membrane layers with many pores Cytoskeleton: network of protein microfilaments that helps the cell maintain its shape; flexible framework that also supports organelles in the cell. It is also involved in many
