14 Eukaryotic Cells, continued Chapter 3Section 2 Cell FeaturesEukaryotic Cells, continuedThe cytoskeleton provides the interior _____________ of a cell. There are three basic kinds of cytoskeletal fibers.________________: long slender filaments made of the protein actin________________: hollow tubes made of the protein tubulin.Intermediate fibers: thick ropes made of protein.
15 Eukaryotic Cells, continued Chapter 3Section 2 Cell FeaturesEukaryotic Cells, continuedThe cytoskeleton’s network of _________ fibers ___________ the cell’s organelles and other components of the cytoplasm.
16 Chapter 3 The Cell Membrane Section 2 Cell FeaturesThe Cell MembraneThe cell membrane is a ______________ permeable barrier that determines which substances enter and leave the cell.The ______________ permeability of the cell is mainly caused by the way phospholipids interact with water.A phospholipid is a lipid made of a phosphate group and two fatty acids.
17 The Cell Membrane, continued Chapter 3Section 2 Cell FeaturesThe Cell Membrane, continuedCell membranes are made of a ____________ layer of phospholipids, called a bilayer.
18 Chapter 3Section 3 Cell OrganellesThe NucleusThe nucleus is an internal compartment that houses the cell’s DNA. Most ____________ of a eukaryotic cell are ______________ by the cell’s nucleus.The nucleus is surrounded by a ______________ membrane called the nuclear envelope.Scattered over the surface of the nuclear envelope are many small channels called nuclear ________.
19 Chapter 3 The Nucleus, continued Section 3 Cell OrganellesThe Nucleus, continuedRibosomal proteins and RNA are ______ in the nucleus.Ribosomes are partially assembled in a region of the nucleus called the ________________.
20 Ribosomes and the Endoplasmic Reticulum Chapter 3Section 3 Cell OrganellesRibosomes and the Endoplasmic ReticulumRibosomes are the cellular structures on which ____________ are made.The Endoplasmic Reticulum or ER is an extensive system of internal membranes that ________ proteins and other ____________ through the cell.
21 Ribosomes and the Endoplasmic Reticulum, continued Chapter 3Section 3 Cell OrganellesRibosomes and the Endoplasmic Reticulum, continuedThe part of the ER with attached ribosomes is called the ___________ ER.The rough ER helps transport proteins that are made by the attached ribosomes.New proteins enter the ER.The portion of the ER that contains the completed protein pinches off to form a ___________.A vesicle is a small, membrane-bound sac that transports substances in cells.
