How to read a cell diagram

How to read a cell diagram: The cell is a miraculous and microscopic entity that is used for many of our bodies’ processes. There are millions of different types of cells in our body however they mostly comprise of the same components. Follow the cell diagram on this page and I will explain to you how this minute part of our muscular system works to our benefit. The first part of the cell in this cell diagram is the highly important cell membrane. The plasma cell membrane holds the cell together like a tiny microscopic package which also regulates the intake and outlet of water, nutrients, other chemical compounds and waste products. The cell is used for the breakdown of fuel, fat breakdown otherwise known as lipolysis. Lipolysis takes place in a cell within a cell called the mitochondria. A reaction occurs which ends in the release of energy and some waste produce that our body either uses or disposes of. This function is very valuable for aerobic exercise because the person who is doing the activity is using a high energy source and reducing fat levels at the same time.

The nucleus

Refer back to the cell diagram and look for the nucleus. The nucleus resembles the brains of the cell. It contains our cell DNA which holds the code for protein synthesis, the making of our cellular blocks. When a cell reproduces it has the ability to divide into two separate cells and the nucleus is also split into two to provide the command centre for the newly formed cell. The cell organelle known as ribosome is another part of the cell used in protein synthesis. RNA from the cell nucleus travels through the cytoplasm to the ribosome which them activates the beginning stages of synthesis. A kind of lock and key mechanism takes place to unlock the secret of the protein synthesis and only the release of the RNA can provide the unlocking of this process. The final organelles on the cell diagram that I will discuss are the lysosomes which aid in the digestion of the nutrients that are required for cellular processes to occur.
