Cells Links

Cell Structure and Function

The following links are related to the topics:
A. Compartments of the cell (cell organelles): Plants versus Animals
B. Cell Sizes
C. Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes
D. Types of cells in the human body

Standard 1c: Students know how prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells 
(including those from plants and animals), and viruses differ in complexity 
and general structure. 

Standard 1e: Students know the role of the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi 
apparatus in the secretion of proteins.

An amazing animated video of the life and functions of a white 
blood cell. 
Even if you don't know what ever is going on, you cannot miss 
the 
beauty and 
complexity of the "protein dance" that is invovled in 
traffic inside the 
cell and outward.
