3 A hollow rod composed of tubulin proteins that makes up part of the cytoskeleton in all eukaryotic cells and is found in cilia and flagella.
5 A circular flow of cytoplasm, involving interactions of myosin and actin filaments, that speeds the distribution of materials within cells.
6 A cable composed of actin proteins in the cytoplasm of almost every eukaryotic cell, making up part of the cytoskeleton and acting alone or with myosin to cause cell contraction.
7 A structure present in the cytoplasm of animal cells that functions as a microtubule-organizing center and is important during cell division; has two centrioles.
8 In cilia and flagella, a large motor protein extending from one microtubule doublet to the adjacent doublet; ATP hydrolysis lead to bending of cilia and flagella.
9 A network of microtubules, microfilaments, and intermediate filaments that extend throughout the cytoplasm and serve a variety of mechanical, transport, and signaling functions.
11 A eukaryotic cell structure consisting of a 9 + 0 arrangement of microtubule triplets; may organize the microtubule assembly of a cilium or flagellum and is structurally very similar to a centriole.
12 A protein that interacts with cytoskeletal elements and other cell components, producing movements of the whole cell or parts of the cell.
13 A structure in the centrosome of an animal cell composed of a cylinder of microtubule triplets arranged in a 9 + 0 pattern.
14 A cellular extension of amoeboid cells used in moving and feeding.
1 The outer region of cytoplasm in a eukaryotic cell, lying just under the plasma membrane, that has a more gel-like consistency than the inner regions due to the presence of multiple microfilaments; in plants, ground tissue that is between the vascula
2 A type of motor protein that associates into filaments that interact with actin filaments to cause cell contraction.
4 A component of the cytoskeleton that includes filaments intermediate in size between microtubules and microfilaments.
10 A globular protein that links into chains, two of which twist helically about each other, forming microfilaments in muscle and other kinds of cells.
