Artery Carries blood rich in oxygen from the heart to the organs of the body
Arterioles (Small arteries) In the organs the artery narrows to form arterioles that branch into capillaries
Venules Capillaries branching into venules, carry blood low in oxygen. Venuels lead to the vein that brings oxygen -poor blood back to the heart
Capillaries Through thin walls of capillaries, oxygen leaves the blood and enters cells. Capillaries branch into venules carry blood low in oxygen
Vein Veins bring oxygen poor blood back to the heart

Anabolism The process of building up large proteins from smaller protein pieces called amino acids
Catabolism Process whereby complex nutrients are broken down to simpler substances and energy is released
Cell membrane Structure surrounding and protecting the cell. It determines what enters and leaves the cell.
Chromasomes Rod shaped structure in the nucleus that contain regions of DNA called genes. There are 23 pairs therefore 46 chromosomes in every cell *excluding egg & sperm cells they have only 23 single chromosomes *
Cytoplasm All material outside of the nucleus but contained within the cell membrane
DNA Chemical found within each chromosome. Arranged like a sequence of recipes in code. It directs the activities of the cell.
Endoplasmic Reticulum Network of canals within the cytoplasm of the cell. Here, large proteins are made from smaller protein pieces.
Mitochondria Structures in the cytoplasm that provide the principal source of energy for the cell. “Miniature power plant” Catabolism is the process that occurs in mitochondria
Nucleus Control centre of the cell. It contains chromosomes and directs the activities of the cell.
Metabolism Total of the chemical processes in the cell. Includes: Catabolism Anabolism
Ribosomes Small granules that help the cell make proteins. Attached to the endoplasmic reticulum
Adipose Connective tissue consisting mainly of fat cells
Cartilage Elastic Fibrous tissue attached to bones Bone, and blood
Karyotype A photograph of an individuals chromosomes arranged by size,shape,and number Determines if chromosomes are normal
23rd chromosomal pair : In women: In men: XY XX
What results when the 21st chromosome has an extra copy? How many 21st chromosomes appear as a result? A condition known as Down Syndrome results Tri (three copies of the 21st chromosome will appear)
4 types of cells Muscle cell Epithelial Cell Nerve cell Fat cell
