cell structers

1. 6 traits of things living Living things are made of cells. Living things obtain and use energy. Living things grow and develop. Living things reproduce. Living things respond to their environment. Living things adapt to their environment.
2. homeostasis Property of a system in which variables are regulated so that internal conditions remain stable and relatively constant.
3. metabolize (Of a body or organ) process (a substance) by metabolism.
4. evolve to change or develop slowly often into a better, more complex, or more advanced state : to develop by a process of evolution
5. multicellular Multicellular organisms are organisms that consist of more than one cell, in contrast to unicellular organisms.
6. single cellular With only one cell orginism
7. cytoplasm The material or protoplasm within a living cell, excluding the nucleus.
8. cell membrane Cell membrane protective out layering around all cells.
9. nucleus Nucleus directs all cell activities
10. endoplasmic reticulum Series of rough or smooth membranes that move materials around a cell
11. ribosomes Make protein
12. mitochodria Releases energy stored in food
13. chloroplast Contains chlorophyll
14. cell wall A rigid layer of polysaccharides lying outside the plasma membrane of the cells of plants, fungi, and bacteria. In the algae and higher plants, it consists mainly of cellulose.
15. vacuole Stores water, waste products, food, and other cellular materials
16. golgi bodies Packages substances and moves them within or outside the cell
17. lysosome Break down food molecules, cell wastes, and worn-out cell parts
18. organism An individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form.
19. organ systems Group of organs that work together to perform one or more functions.
20. organs A part of an organism that is typically self-contained and has a specific vital function, such as the heart or liver in humans.
21. atoms The basic unit of a chemical element.
22. cells The smallest structural and functional unit of an organism, typically microscopic and consisting of cytoplasm and a nucleus enclosed in a membrane.
23. tissue Any of the distinct types of material of which animals or plants are made, consisting of specialized cells and their products.
photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy, normally from the Sun, into chemical energy that can be later released to fuel the organisms' activities (energy transformation).
resperation The physiological definition of respiration should not be confused with the biochemical definition of respiration, which refers to cellular respiration: the metabolic process by which an organism obtains energy by reacting oxygen with glucose to give wate
atp Biochemistry. adenosine triphosphate: an ester of adenosine and triphosphoric acid, C 10 H 12 N 5 O 4 H 4 P 3 O 9 , formed especially aerobically by the reaction of ADP and an orthophosphate during oxidation, or by the interaction of ADP and phosphocreati
chloroplast (in green plant cells) a plastid that contains chlorophyll and in which photosynthesis takes place.
mitochondria an organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. It has a double membrane, the inner layer being folded inward to form layers (cristae).
reactants a substance that takes part in and undergoes change during a reaction.
products an article or substance that is manufactured or refined for sale.
asexual Having no evident sex or sex organs
sexual reproduction involving the union of gametes.
