According to Florida State University, ribosomes are primarily constructed in the nucleolus of all living cells. Inside the nucleolus, four strands ribosomal RNA (rRNA) bind together with ribosomal proteins. This results... More » Science Biology Cells

Ribosomes are microscopic structures within living cells that convert genetic code into an amino acid sequence. They are also responsible for converting amino acid monomers into more complex structures called polymers. R... More »

In the cells of eukaryotic organisms, the subunits that will become ribosomes are produced within the subnuclear structure called the nucleolus, and the subunits then combine in the cell's cytoplasm to become functioning... More »

Cellular respiration is used to make ATP, adenosine triphosphate, which provides the energy that the cells need to be able to carry out their functions in living cells. All cells carry out some form of cellular respirati... More »

The Krebs cycle occurs in the mitochondria of living cells. It's also called the citric acid cycle and the TCA cycle. The Krebs cycle is necessary for metabolism, in which cells change food into energy. More »

Remarkable facts about mitosis are that the entire four-stage mitotic process occurs in about one hour and all living cells are continuously undergoing mitosis. Mitosis includes four biological processes, which are proph... More »

Phagocytosis is the process by which living cells called phagocytes envelop or engulf other cells or particles, whereas pinocytosis is a process in which liquid droplets are ingested by living cells. Both are forms of en... More »
