Amoeba moves and feeds by using pseudopods, which are bulges of cytoplasm formed by the coordinated action of actin microfilaments pushing out the plasma membrane that surrounds the cell. Pseudopodia are temporary finger-like projections with blunt rounded tips which are constantly being given out or withdrawn by the body. You can observe the pseudopodia in the amoeba diagram above.
Like an ordinary cell, the body of amoeba has 3 main parts: plasmalemma or plasma membrane, cytoplasm and nucleus. Plasmalemma is a very thin, delicate and elastic cell membrane of an amoeba. It is composed of a double layer of lipid and protein molecules. The cytoplasm is differentiated into ectoplasm and endoplasm. The ectoplasm forms the outer and relatively firm layer lying just beneath the plasmalemma.
The nucleus has a firm nuclear membrane or nuclear envelope and contains a clear achromatic substance with minute chromatin granules or chromidia distributed uniformly near the surface. The diagrams that we provided above are amoeba diagram examples. All of the diagrams above are free and printable. Find more interesting and educative diagrams in our site by browsing up our category!
