48+ Plant Cell Diagram Microfilaments Images. If all the organelles were removed from a cell, the plasma membrane and the cytoplasm would not be the only components left. Structure and functions of microfilaments microfilaments are the leanest filaments of the cytoskeleton present in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells with a diameter of about 5 to 8 nanometers.
They function in cellular movement, have a diameter of about 7 nm, and are comprised of two globular protein intertwined strands, which we call actin (figure). The polymers of tubulin protein that form the part of the cytoskeleton and gives shape and structure to plant cell are microtubules. Cell walls are made up of carbohydrates such as cellulose, hemicellulose, and pectin and a complex organic polymer called lignin.
For each organelle, indicate whether that particular organelle is found in prokaryotes, eukaryotic animal cells or eukaryotic plant cells.
Using diagram as a guide, place purple snakes for the intermediate filaments, yellow snakes for the microtubules & orange snakes for the microfilaments. Connolly ja, kalnins vi, barber bh. The plant may droop or wilt, but it can recover when water returns to the system. The cytoskeleton is a complex network of fibers that supports the interior of a cell.
