What is the cells Structure of bacteria?

Harry Mobley, chair of the department of microbiology and immunology at the University of Michigan Medical School, provides this answer. In order to be useful in treating human infections, antibiotics must selectively target bacteria for eradication and not the cells of its human host. Indeed, modern antibiotics act either on processes that are unique to bacteria-such…

A new study by researchers at UCLA has revealed two key findings for people with irritable bowel syndrome about the relationship between the microorganisms that live in the gut and the brain. For people with IBS research shows for the first time that there is an association between the gut microbiota and the brain regions involved in the processing of sensory…

All animals and plants are made of cells. Animal cells and plant cells have features in common, such as a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes. Plant cells also have a cell wall, and often have chloroplasts and a permanent vacuole. Note that cells may be specialised to carry out a particular function. Dissolved substances pass into and…

Specialized Structures in Prokaryotic cells

Prokaryotic Cells Prokaryotic cells are the simplest systems that exhibit all of the signs of life. They are the smallest types of cell, averaging 2-5 m in length, which makes them just visible under the light microscope. Despite their small size, inside each cell there is the complete chemical and biochemical machinery necessary for growth, reproduction and…

Structures Unique to animal cells

Although they are both eukaryotic cells, there are unique structural differences between animal and plant cells. Learning Objective Differentiate between the structures found in animal and plant cells Key Points Centrosomes and lysosomes are found in animal cells, but do not exist within plant cells. Plant cells have a cell wall, chloroplasts and other specialized…

Structure of the Cytoplasm

Microtubules radiate towards the periphery of the cell from microtubule organizing centers (MTOCs) located close to the nucleus, and provide structure and shape to the cell. This image shows the nucleus in blue, the actin filaments on the cell periphery are labeled red and the extensive microtubule network is marked green. The cytoplasm undergoes rapid reorganization…

Structure and Reproduction of Bacteria

Bacterial Reproduction: This Salmonella bacterium is undergoing the process of binary fission. The cell divides resulting in the formation of two identical cells. Janice Haney Carr/CDC Bacteria are prokaryotic organisms that reproduce asexually. Bacterial reproduction most commonly occurs by a kind of cell division called binary fission. Binary fission involves…

In recent times diesel powered vehicles are becoming popular due to improved performance and reduced exhaust emission with this the market share of diesel passenger cars expected to approach 60 % over the next few years. In compliance with future emission standards for diesel powered vehicles, it is required to use diesel particulate filters (DPF) along with…

OCC Biology E-Tutor Components of ALL Cells The Cell Membrane forms a boundary between the interior of the cell and the external environment (however, there ARE cell components beyond the cell membrane, and some important cellular processes occur OUTSIDE of the cell membrane). Like all, the cell membrane consists of a fluid phospholipid bilayer containing proteins…

Cell Structure Parts

All living organisms on Earth are divided into cells. The main concept of cell theory is that cells are the basic structural unit for all organisms. Cells are small compartments that hold the biological equipment necessary to keep an organism alive and successful. Living things may be single-celled or they may be very complex such as a human being. There are…

What is the Structure of cytoplasm?

Background: Y14 is an RNA binding protein which is part of a multiprotein complex, the exon-exon junction complex (EJC), that assembles on the exon-exon junctions of mRNAs produced by splicing. The position-specific binding of Y14 persists on mRNAs after their export to the cytoplasm. Thus, Y14, together with its interacting proteins, has the capacity to communicate…

Chloroplasts and a cellulose cell wall are unique to plants – but plant cells have much in common with fungi, bacteria and animal cells too How come plants can make their own food but animals can’t? It’s all down to the green, pigment-packed chloroplasts that help plants to turn carbon dioxide and water into glucose. Modern-day chloroplasts were, according to…

Structure of Bacterial DNA

Bacterial DNA – a circular chromosome plus plasmids The DNA of most bacteria is contained in a single circular molecule, called the bacterial chromosome. The chromosome, along with several proteins and RNA molecules, forms an irregularly shaped structure called the nucleoid. This sits in the cytoplasm of the bacterial cell. In addition to the chromosome, bacteria…

The prokaryotic tubulin homolog protein FtsZ assembles into the Z-ring at mid-cell to provide contractile force during bacterial cell division. Here, by tracing the status of FtsZ in living E. coli cells, we unexpectedly revealed a cytosolic organelle-like structure containing the FtsZ protein that is solely formed in non-growing/non-dividing late stationary-phase…

Structure of a plasmid

Plasmids are sometimes called vectors , because they can take DNA from one organism to the next. Not all vectors are plasmids, however. We commonly use engineered viruses, for example bacteriophage lambda, which can carry large pieces of foreign DNA. Why do we use the word vector,which we ve been trying to forget ever since we took Physics 100? The word has…

Structure cell

Ideas about cell structure have changed considerably over the years. Early biologists saw cells as simple membranous sacs containing fluid and a few floating particles. Today s biologists know that cells are infinitely more complex than this. There are many different types, sizes, and shapes of cells in the body. For descriptive purposes, the concept of a generalized…
