Diffusion of solvent
Diffusion of solvent

Osmosis Water molecules move down along the concentration gradient through a semipermeable membrane and this process is called osmosis. It is the movement.

Endocytosis
Endocytosis

The uptake of molecules into the cell occurs by a process called endocytosis. The molecule at first fuses with the cell membrane and invaginates.The invagination.

Microtubules
Microtubules

The microtubules give shape to the cell. They facilitate the transport of secretory vesicles and organelles to the cell surface. The microtubules are in.

Peroxisomes
Peroxisomes

It is one of the constituents of microsomes and can be obtained by ultracentrifugation of the cell organelles. The peroxisomes are more in number in liver.

Lysosomes
Lysosomes

They are the vesicles containing hydrolytic enzymes. They are formed from endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus. The main function of lysosomes is.

Mitochondria
Mitochondria

It is oval shaped and has double layered cell membrane.The inner membrane has been thrown into folds called cristae which increase the surface area. The.

Golgi apparatus
Golgi apparatus

It consists of stacks of flat vesicles and is closely associated with RER. Golgi apparatus receives the synthesized protein and modifies it by concentration,.

Endoplasmic reticulum
Endoplasmic reticulum

It is one of the constituents of microsomes. It is of two types namely, smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER) and rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER). The.
