  • pathogen
  • The normal mechanism for dealing with a foreign body invading a cell involves lysosomes of the cell fusing with the vacuole surrounding the invader and showering it with a concentrated mix of digestive enzymes, which degrade the intracellular pathogen. (hhmi.org)
  • organelles
  • In addition to the various organelles, the cytoskeleton plays a key role in intracellular transport by providing the mechanical support necessary for the cell to divide and facilitates movement. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is composed of actin, intermediate filaments and microtubules which each have a role in locomotion, intracellular transport of organelles, cell shape and chromosome separation. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • In this animation, you can see how one S. typhimurium invades an epithelial cell of the intestinal tract, survives the intracellular defense mechanisms of the host cell, and multiplies. (hhmi.org)
  • Although in some cases the use of other methods, like whole-cell patch clamp, would be possible, the intracellular recording technique remains the method of choice for this purpose. (scholarpedia.org)
  • a signal within the cell ( intracellular signalling). (brainmass.com)
  • But in reality microtubules are laid out regularly within each cell, and cargos such as mitochondria, membrane vesicles and the like are moved along these rails in a process called intracellular transport. (u-tokyo.ac.jp)
  • In its broadest sense, intracellular digestion is the breakdown of substances within the cytoplasm of a cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • Intracellular digestion can also refer to the process in which animals that lack a digestive tract bring food items into the cell for the purposes of digestion for nutritional needs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Intracellular transport is the movement of vesicles and substances within the cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • In order to properly maintain cell growth utilization of these "cellular highways" is achieved through intracellular transport. (wikipedia.org)
  • Discovery
  • As background for further extension of these methods this volume contains material on the history of the discovery of Procion dyes as intracellular stains, the chemistry of these dyes, and fundamentals of fluorescence microscopy. (springer.com)
  • transport
  • RNA intracellular transport includes the export of an RNA from its site of synthesis, the nucleus, to the cytoplasm and for some RNAs, the subsequent localization to specific cytoplasmic subdomains. (els.net)
  • Intracellular transport is more specialized than diffusion, it is a multifaceted process which utilizes transport vesicles. (wikipedia.org)
  • One very well understood form of intracellular transport is known as endocytosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • techniques
  • I'm looking for methods/references regarding the techniques for measuring intracellular pH. (bio.net)
  • There are several variations of intracellular techniques, which can be grouped by the type of glass microelectrode used. (adinstruments.com)
  • The purpose of this book is to provide basic reference material to facilitate the further development and application of the intracellular staining techniques which originated with the introduction of Procion dye as a neurocellular stain. (springer.com)
  • First, we recognized that both the techniques and results of intracellular staining have been derived from a variety of preparations and published in diverse journals. (springer.com)
  • Second
  • results in enhanced membrane ion conductance) or metabotropic (ie, their activation results in increased intracellular levels of second messenger ) in nature. (brainmass.com)
  • high
  • When the investigator desires to record neuronal membrane signals reliably with high signal-to-noise ratio in situ , that is, in tissue, the intracellular recording technique has to be employed. (scholarpedia.org)
