Eukaryotic Cell

What is the Eukaryotic cell?

Eukaryotic cells are organized nuclei and organelles which are enveloped by membrane-bound organelles. Some examples of eukaryotic cells are plants, animals, protists, and fungi. Their genetic material is organized in chromosomes. The parts of the cell include the Golgi apparatus, Mitochondria, Ribosomes, and Nucleus.

What is the function of the Eukaryotic cell?

The plasma membrane allows only some substances to pass through.

Protects the cells from shock and injuries.

As the membrane is made mostly of fluid it allows the interaction of molecules within the membrane. Also, has a big importance in terms of secretion, cell growth, division, etc.

Allows 2 types of transportation of molecules across the membrane:

Active transport – occurs against the concentration gradient and requires energy. Also, there is a need for carrier proteins, and is a highly selective process.

Passive transport –occurs along the concentration gradient and therefore and does not require energy. There is no need for carrier proteins and is not selective.

Eukaryotic Cell vs Prokaryotic Cell

The eukaryotic cells have membrane-bound organelles.

In the prokaryotic cell, the DNA simply floats around the cytoplasm.

In the prokaryotic cell, organelles are not covered in a plasma membrane.

In the eukaryotic cell are a lot of membrane-bound organelles that divide the cell into many different compartments.

The eukaryotic cells contain mitochondria to create ATP molecules from glucose and chloroplasts to create glucose from sunlight (only in plants and algae).

The nucleus that the DNA houses are found in the eukaryotic cell.

Golgi apparatus that folds and packages various proteins and cellular products.

In the eukaryotic cell, there is also the endoplasmic reticulum that creates many chambers to carry out specific biochemical reactions.

How to create a custom design for the Eukaryotic Cell template?

  1. You can create your shape in a vector program and import/ insert it as a vector or raster image. The other option is to use MyDraw’s Basic shapes and connectors and make your custom shape.
  2. Once you are happy with the custom shape you could include it in your Library.
  3. Click on the textbook icon on the left side of the bar and choose “New Library”. Name the library and drag and drop the shape in it.
  4. Then right-click with the mouse on the Library tab and choose “Save as”.
  5. Choose the folder location on your computer and save it as a .nlb file.
  6. For future use, you could always add the newly created library to other diagrams.
  7. Once you have created your diagram/ template you can save the document in one of MyDraw’s native formats or export it in a preferred file format(PDF, SVG, EMF, VSDX, etc.).
  8. You can also export the document as a raster image.
