What are the characteristics of cytoplasm?
The cytoplasm is the fluid in that fills in the space between the cell membrane and the organelles.
One of the elements that make up the cytoplasm is cytosol. The cytosol is the place of most metabolism occurs. Metabolic pathways that occur in the cytosol include those such as glycolisis and and protein biosynthesis. The cytosol makes up about 70% of the volume of a cell.
The cytoplasm also contains inclusions (cytoplasmic inclusions) which are small particles, such as small quantities starch and glycogen, that are suspended in the cytoplasm.
1. Cytoplasm us a gelatinlike substance that fills the cell. 2. Most of the cell's life processes occur in the cytoplasm. 3. Cytoskeleton, framework of cytoplasm, helps the cell maintain or change its shape and enables some cells to move. 4. Cytoplasm constantly flows inside the cell membrane. 5. Cytoskeleton is made up of thin, hollow tubes of protein and fiber. Hopefully you didn't get this question as your homework from the textbook. Because if…
There are several characteristics of Spirogyra. Spirogyra is named for its helical arrangement of the chloroplasts. It undergoes a haploid-dominant life cycle. The chloroplasts, which are embedded in the peripheral cytoplasm, are scalloped and arranged spirally. Spirogyra measures about 10-100 micrometers in width and can stretch centimeters long.
Its either the cell wall,chloroplast,chromosome,or the cytoplasm that contains information about the characteristics of the cell Well if by characteristics you mean DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) it is contained in the nucleus. The nucleus controls all functions and activities of the cell (it's kind of like how we have a brain.) The nucleus is usually found in the middle of the cell but all cells are different so it's organelle's can be scattered around.
