Transcript of Cytoplasm

By: Isaac Thomison Cytoplasm -Cytoplasm is made up of this clear, jelly-like substance that fills the gap between the nucleus and the Cell Membrane.
-All of the organelles, and every other thing in between the Nucleus and the Cell Membrane are suspended in this substance.
-Cytoplasm consists of a substance called Cytosol, which is about 90% water, and Cytosol takes up about 70% of the Cell's volume.
-The other 10% of Cytosol is made up of proteins, which is the Cytoskeleton, and the inner layer of the Cytoplasm, which is called Endoplasm, is made up of acids, enzymes, sugars, and salts, in dissolved form. what type of cell is cytoplasm found in? what is the composition or structure of cytoplasm? -Cytoplasm is found in both Prokaryotic cells (bacterial, or simple cells without a nucleus), and Eukaryotic cells (both Animal and Plant cells, or complex cells) as it is impossible for any cell to survive without it, because it supplies the cell with important nutrients it needs to function and stay alive. Also, it gives the cell its 3-D shape, and is a place for the organelles to move around in. No cell could survive without cytoplasm. how are the mechanisms of the functions of cytoplasm regulated? -Basically, it allows what enters and exits through the cell wall and cell membrane.
-It controls what gets to the Nucleus, and what gets to the other organelles. Why are Cytoplasm's function's
so important? -Cytoplasm is the place where all organelles are, and it allows them to move around to what part of the Cell they need to be in, and that keeps the Cell functioning.Without the Cytoplasm, there would be no Cytosol, so not only would the organelles not be able to move around and perform their functions, but the organelles, nor the Nucleus, would be able to function, and if nothing in a Cell can function, then the Cell shuts down and dies. What are cytoplasm's functions? -The Cytoplasm offers support for the cell, and helps to speed up inter-cellular travel (allows things to easily travel within the cell).
-Cytoplasm allows the cells organelles to float freely, allowing them to travel to where they needed to be.
-Cytoplasm also holds holds important chemicals that are inevitable for the cells survival. Cytoplasm breaks down these chemicals, and allows the organelles to use them, so that they can stay alive and function, and so that they can help the entire cell itself stay alive and function.
-Cytoplasm provides the cell with a 3-D shape. what would happen if the cell didn't have cytoplasm? -Since Cytoplasm is the substance that allows organelles to travel around the cell so that they can perform their functions, allows communication between different parts of the cell, and provides the cell, along with all of the cell's organelles, the chemicals they need to survive and function, Cytoplasm's function is pretty important, if you want the cell to stay alive, and continue to function. what is the connection between the cell
and cytoplasm? -The Cytoplasm keeps the Cell functioning by supplying the Nucleus, and the other organelles with chemicals (Endoplasm) that they need to function.
-The Cytoplasm provides a place for the organelles to move around and carry out their functions.
-The Cytoplasm allows for the Nucleus to send information off to the Cytoplasm and the organelles, and for the organelles and Cytoplasm to send information back to the Nucleus. What are the mechanisms of the function
of cytoplasm? Sources I used for information -Cytoplasm holds all of the organelles in place outside the Nucleus.
