Plasmodesmata in Plant Cells

Plasmodesmata in Plant Cells

Plasmodesmata are channels that perforate plant cell walls

Through plasmodesmata, water and small solutes (and sometimes proteins and RNA) can pass from cell to cell

Tight Junctions, Desmosomes, and Gap Junctions in Animal Cells

Tight Junctions, Desmosomes, and Gap Junctions in Animal Cells

At tight junctions, membranes of neighboring cells are pressed together, preventing leakage of extracellular fluid

Desmosomes (anchoring junctions) fasten cells together into strong sheets

Gap junctions (communicating junctions) provide cytoplasmic channels between adjacent cells

The Cell: A Living Unit Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts

The Cell: A Living Unit Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts

Cells rely on the integration of structures and organelles in order to function

For example, a macrophages ability to destroy bacteria involves the whole cell, coordinating components such as the cytoskeleton, lysosomes, and plasma membrane
