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.
