CellnBasic unit (structure and function) of lifenMake up tissuenContain organellesFigure 1.1 electron micrograph of eukaryotic cell
Cell MembranenStructure: thin flexible permeable barrier composed of protein and phospholipidsnFunction: Regulate cell secretions and consumptionnLocation: outlines the cellnAbundantly found in: cholesterolFigure 1.2 electron micrograph of cell membrane
CentriolesnStructure: paired cellular organellenFunction: organized and help distribute chromosome by forming fibers during cell divisionnLocation: near nucleus in cytoplasmnAbundantly found in: Sperm CellFigure 1.3 electron micrograph of centrioles
CilianStructure: motile short, numerous, projections of membrane supported by microtubulesnFunction: propel cells through surrounding environmentnLocation: out side; along with membranenAbundantly found in: tracheaFigure 1.4 electron micrograph of eukaryotic cell
