• molecules
  • While small signaling molecules like calcium ions are able to diffuse with ease, larger molecules and subcellular structures often require aid in moving through the cytoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is thought that the component molecules and structures of the cytoplasm behave at times like a disordered colloidal solution (sol) and at other times like an integrated network, forming a solid mass (gel). (wikipedia.org)
  • liquid
  • Recently it has been proposed that the cytoplasm behaves like a glass-forming liquid approaching the glass transition. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sonneborn demonstrated during his research on Paramecium that the structure of the cortex was not dependent on genes, or the liquid cytoplasm, but in the cortical structure of the surface of the ciliates. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • The team, led by Ming Guo, the Brit and Alex d'Arbeloff Career Development Assistant Professor in MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering, found that an organelle feels a certain resistance in cytoplasm, depending on that organelle's size and the speed at which it moves through a cell.

  • Exoerythrocytic schizogony occurs in the mononuclear phagocyte system A blue, pale blue or white globule, frequently refractory, can be found in the cytoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • plant
  • They are, however, consistent with the hypothesis that the event responsible for the appearance of exceptional male-fertile offspring among progeny of the original cross involved a change from male-sterile to male-fertile condition in the cytoplasm of the male-sterile M825 plant involved as the female parent in this cross.
