Plasma Cells http://www.wxsghls.com/plasma-cells/ Mon, 12 Apr 2021 13:36:04 +0000 http://www.wxsghls.com/?p=21497 Plasma cells (AKA plasma B cells) are the key cells involved in humoral immunityPlasma cells (AKA plasma B cells) are the key cells involved in humoral immunity. They develop from na?ve B cells as a result of antigen exposure and pump out large numbers of monoclonal antibodies in response to invading pathogens. The antibodies produced by plasma cells are specific to a particular pathogen. Once released from the […]

Plant vs. Animal Cells http://www.wxsghls.com/plant-vs-animal-cells/ Mon, 05 Apr 2021 19:22:18 +0000 http://www.wxsghls.com/?p=21422 Cell structures differ between plant and animal cellsCells are the fundamental units that make up all living things, including plants and animals. All plant and animal cells are eukaryotic, so they have several cellular processes and organelles in common. However, there are also key differences between plant and animal cells in terms of their size, their shape, and the cell structures they […]

Nerve Cell http://www.wxsghls.com/nerve-cell/ Fri, 02 Apr 2021 14:18:46 +0000 http://www.wxsghls.com/?p=21383 A nerve cell is a basic functional unit of the nervous systemNerve cells (AKA?neurons) are the basic functional units of the nervous system, and the adult human brain is thought to contain?around 86 billion of them. The role of a nerve cell is to receive information from cells and transmit this information to other cells. There are three different types of nerve cells in the human […]

How Many Cells Are in the Human Body? http://www.wxsghls.com/how-many-cells-are-in-the-human-body/ Thu, 01 Apr 2021 13:05:07 +0000 http://www.wxsghls.com/?p=21379 Cell types and numbers in the adult human bodyHuman beings are complex multicellular organisms made up of trillions of cells. Scientists estimate that the adult human body contains?around 37 trillion human cells and 200 different cell types. The human microbiota (a collection of microorganisms found primarily in the gut) consists of a further 10-100 trillion microbial cells. How Many Different Cell Types Are […]

They contain all the molecules and structures needed for individual cell survival and the survival of the organism as a whole. Different cells have different subcellular structures, but all eukaryotes contain the same three parts: the nucleus, the cell membrane, […]

Some of these structures release energy, while others produce proteins, transport substances, and control cellular activities. Collectively, these structures are called?organelles. Plant and animal cells both contain organelles, many of which are found in both types of cells. However, there are […]

Anabolism vs. Catabolism http://www.wxsghls.com/anabolism-vs-catabolism/ Wed, 24 Mar 2021 12:25:18 +0000 http://www.wxsghls.com/?p=21223 Catabolism and anabolism are both types of metabolic reactionsAnabolism and catabolism are the two types of biochemical reactions that make up the?metabolism. Anabolic reactions involve the building of larger, complex molecules from smaller, simpler ones, and require an input of energy. Catabolic reactions are the opposite of anabolic reactions, and break the chemical bonds in larger, more complex molecules. This process releases energy […]
