Cell Structures and Function

a Collection

Living cells as you've never seen them before:

Harvard Cell Animation

Powering the Cells: Mitochondria

ATP Synthase: The power plant of the cell

The Workhorse of the Cell: Kinesin

Masterpieces of microengineering, kinesins are motorized transport machines that move cellular materials to their correct locations in the cell so they can perform their functions. Kinesins have two feet, or "globular heads," that literally walk, one foot over another. Known as the "workhorses of the cell," kinesins can carry cargo many times their own size.
