Study about the structure of a cell with these cell diagrams for your reference. View the diagrams and learn about the parts that make up a cell. There are two basic types of cells: prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells. We will study about the differences by means of the following cell diagrams.
The cell is the smallest unit of life in an organism where all the activities of life take place. The cell is surrounded by a cell or plasma membrane. The nucleus is the control center of the cell. The cytoplasm surrounds the nucleus. Check out more cell diagrams below to see more detailed illustration of the structures of a cell.
The plasma membrane is composed of phospholipid molecules and protein. The parts of the membrane move around constantly. That is why the membrane is said to be fluid. This is called the fluid mosaic model of the plasma membrane. Meanwhile, the mitochondria are called the powerhouses of the cell. Muscle and liver cells have many mitochondria and produce a lot of energy. (s)
There are also ribosomes which are composed of RNA and protein. You can browse more to know the more detailed structures and functions of each parts of the cell. All of the diagrams above are printable in good quality!
