a microscope that uses a beam of visable light passing through one or more lenses to magnify an object. Light Micrscope
a microscope that focusses a beam of electrons to magnify objects. Electron Microscope
the increase of an objects apparent size by using lenses or mirrors. Magnification
in microscopes, the ability to form images with fine detail. Resolution
a microscope that produces an enlanged, three demensonal image of an object by using a beam of electrons rather than light. Scanning Tunneling Microscope
the theory that states that all living things are made up of cells, that cells are the basic units of organisms has a specific job, and that cells come only from existing cells. Cell Theory
A phospholipid layer that covers a cells surface and acts as a barrier between the inside of a cell and the cells enviroment. Cell Membrane
the region of the cell within the membrane that includes the fluid the cytoskeleton, and all of the nucleus. Cytoplasm
are the cellular structures on which proteins are made. Ribosomes
an organism that consist of a single cell that does not have a nucleus or cell organelles; an example is a bacterium. Prokaryote
A rigid structure that surrounds the cell membrane and provides support to the cell. Cell Wall
a long, hair like structure that grows out of a cell and enables the cell to move. Flagellum
an organism made up of cells that have a nucleus enclosed by a membrane, multiple chromosomes, and a mitotic cycle; eukaroytes includes animals, plants, and fung; but not bacteria or cyanobacteria. Eukaroyte
in a eukaryotic cell, biology, a membrane- bound organelle that contains the cells DNA and that has a role in processes such as growth, metabolism, and reproduction. Nuclues
one of the small bodies that are found in the cytoplasm of a cell and that are specialized to perform a specific function. Organelle
a hair like structure arranged in tighly packed rows that projects from the surface of some cells. Cilium
a lipid that contains phosphorus and that is a structional component in a call membrane Phospholipid
the basic structure of a biological membranes, composed of two layers of phospolipids. Lipid Bilayer
a system of membranes that is found in a cell's cytoplasm and that assists in the production, processing, and transport of proteins and in the production of lipids. Endoplasmic Reticulum
a small cavity or sac that contains materials in a eukaryotic cell; forms when part of the cell membrane surrounds the materials to be taken into the cell transported within the cell. Vesicles
cell organelle that helps make and package materials to be transported within the cell. Golgi Appartus
a cell organelle that contains digestive enzymes. Lysosome
in eukaryotic cells, the cell organelle that is surrounded by two membranes and that is the site of celluar respiration, which produces ATP. Mitochondrian
organelle found in plant and algae cell where photosythesis occur. Chloroplast
a large cavity or sac that is found in plant cells or protozoans and that contains air or partially digested food. Central Vacuole
