You wouldn’t think that’s it’s just about DNA, now, would you?
Here is an amazing animation from Harvard University showing some of the processes involved in having a white blood cell move and react to a source of inflammation.
There is a lot of talk that may leave you stumped so here just a few pointers:
- Cytosol - Internal fluid of the cell
- Lipids - Check out the link, to be honest I am not quite sure but it seems like lipids play the role of structuring
- Proteins - so essential I can’t really think of any single phrase on those.
- Ribosomes - aid in building e.g. proteins
- Endoplasmatic Reticulum performs protein and lipid synthesis and transportation.
- Golgi Apparatus modifies, sorts, and packages macromolecules created in the cell e.g. for secretion to the outside.
- Mitochondrion the cell’s energy plants
- Vesicles - Compartments made of lipid layer(s) that allow to transport stuff (like waste etc.) around the cell
- Centrosome - functions within the internal structure and movement of a cell and seems to be involved in cell division
