Scapular Pertaining to the scapula or shoulder blade area
Sural Pertaining to the calf or posterior side of the leg
Vertebral Pertaining to the area of the spinal column
Superior/Inferior Above/Below -along the axis of the body
Anterior Front
Posterior Back
Cephalad (Cranial) Toward the head
Cadual Toward the tail
Medial Toward the midline
Lateral Away from the midline
Dorsal Back side
Ventral Belly side
Proximal Near the trunk or attached end
Distal Away from the trunk or attached end
Superficial Toward or at the body surface
Deep Away from the body surface
Frontal plane Divides posterior from the anterior
Midsagittal Plane Divides the body into left and right parts down the midline (creates symmetry)
Transverse Plane Horizontal division of the body (cross sections)
Human anatomical position Standing, feet slightly apart, head and toes forward, arms down, palms forward.
Base (microscope) Supports the microscope
Substage light mirror located in the base; provides light
Stage Place where the specimen is viewed
Condenser Small substage lens that concentrates light on the specimen
Iris diaphragm lever Arm attached to the base of hte condenser that regulates the amount of light passing through the condenser.
Coarse adjustment knob used to focus on the specimen
Fine adjustment knob used after coarse knob for precise focusing
Head (Body tube) of microscope Supports the objective lens system and ocular lenses

Ocular (microscope) Eyepiece -Magnification of 10x
Nosepiece Rotating mechanism at the base of the head that holds the objective lenses
Objective lenses have differing levels of magnification
Nuclear envelope double layered porous membrane that binds the nucleus (pores allow for transport of protein and RNA)
Nucleus houses the DNA
Chromatin Genetic material; DNA
Nucleolus makes ribosomes; at the center of the nucleus
Plasma membrane Separates cell contents from the environment (Phospholipid bilayer and proteins)
Phospholipid bilayer made of 2 rows of lipids -polar (hydrophyllic) heads -nonpolar (hydrophobic) tails
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum -studded with ribosomes -store and transport proteins produced by ribosomes -synthesizes phospholipids and cholesterol
Transmembrane proteins passages of communication; used for transport and signals
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum -steroid and lipid synthesis - lipid metabolism -drug detoxification
Ribosomes -composed of RNA and protein -sites of PROTEIN SYNTHESIS
Golgi apparatus houses and packages cell products
Vesicles Secretory packages released by golgi apparatus (exocytosis)
Peroxisome vesicle that holds and digests liquids
Cytoskeletal Elements - Cell support; shape and structure - microfilament, microtubule, intermediate filaments
Microfilament Used for cell mobility
Microtubule Used for cell shape
Intermediate filaments Fix the insides of cell in place
Microvilli Add surface area and movement
Centrioles Paired, cylindrical bodies; make mitotic spindle
Mitochondria - "powerhouse" of the cell - makes ATP (cellular respiration)
Lysosome holds cell materials in need of disposal
Cytosol Intracellular fluid
Mitosis steps Interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, cytokenesis
