Which location in the cell is unlikely to contain ribosomes or ribosomal subunits?plasma membrane
Which of the following statements regarding the endomembrane system is false?The endomembrane system is a system of interrelated membranes that are all physically connected
The endomembrane system includes all of the following organelles except theperoxisome
An immune system cell called the plasma cell produces thousands of antibodies per second for release into the body. What type of intracellular structure would you expect to be very prominent within the cell?endoplasmic reticulum
Smooth endoplasmic reticulumstores calcium ions in muscle cells.
The two main functions of the rough endoplasmic reticulum are the production ofmembrane and proteins secreted by the cell.
Secretory proteins arereleased from the cell through the plasma membrane.
The cells that produce hair contain a lot of ________, while the cells that produce the oils that coat the hair contain a lot of ________.rough endoplasmic reticulum . . . smooth endoplasmic reticulum
The Golgi apparatusstores, modifies, and packages proteins.
Which of the following statements regarding the Golgi apparatus is falseThe Golgi apparatus decreases in size when a cell increases its protein production
Which of the following statements about lysosomes is false?Lysosomes synthesize proteins from the recycled amino acids
When a cell is deprived of oxygen, its lysosomes tend to burst and release their contents into the cell. As a result of this, that cell willundergo self-digestion and die
Tay-Sachs disease results from the malfunction oflysosomes
Tay-Sachs diseasecauses an accumulation of lipids in brain cells
Which of the following statements about the functions of a plant cell central vacuole is false?The central vacuole of a plant cell may digest chemicals for recycling.
Contractile vacuolesprevent cells from bursting as a result of the influx of excess water.
A manufacturing company dumps its wastes into a nearby pond. One of the wastes is found to paralyze the contractile vacuoles of certain protists. A biologist looking at individual samples of these organisms taken from the pond would find that theyhave gained water and burst.
Which organelle is involved in the catabolism of fatty acids and the detoxification of alcohol?peroxosome
Insulin is a protein that is produced by pancreatic cells and secreted into the bloodstream. Which of the following options correctly lists the order of the structures through which insulin passes from its production to its exit from the cell?rough ER, transport vesicles, Golgi apparatus, transport vesicles, cell membrane
The function of mitochondria iscellular respiration
Cyanide inhibits mitochondrial function; as a result, the rate ofATP synthesis decreases.

The function of chloroplasts isphotosynthesis
The stroma is thethick fluid enclosed by the inner chloroplast membrane
Mitochondria differ from chloroplasts in that mitochondriacontain membrane folds called cristae, whereas chloroplasts contain disk-like vesicles in stacks called grana.

The endosymbiosis hypothesis is supported by all of the following pieces of evidence, except the fact thatmitochondria use ATP like prokaryotes.

Cilia differ from flagella in thatcilia are typically more numerous and shorter than flagella
A basal body issimilar in structure to centrioles.
Dynein feetare found on microtubules in cilia and flagella and cause movement by grabbing and pulling at adjacent microtubule doublets.
A woman is having trouble becoming pregnant. Examination of her partner's sperm indicates that dynein feet are missing from the flagella in his sperm cells. A physician explains that this could interfere with fertility bypreventing the sperm from swimming to the egg cell.
Decreased fertility in men from developed countries may be related toincreased exposure to hormone-like chemicals in the environment.

After reading the paragraph, answer the question(s) that follow.The skin is the body's largest organ. It's made up of many different types of cells. Oils, produced by the sebaceous glands, prevent the skin from drying and splitting. The protein melanin, produced by melanocytes in the epidermis, protects the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. Sweat, released through ducts to the skin surface, helps to cool the body. The types of cells that produce these compounds have different numbers of specific organelles, depending on their function.
Based on their function, you would expect melanocytes in the skin to have a higher than usual number ofribosomes
The oil from the sebaceous glands is produced by which of the following cell organelles?smooth endoplasmic reticulum
the endosymbiosis
