[q] To what structure in this eukaryote cell is the number 2 pointing?
[c*] The cytoplasm
[c] The membrane
[c] The nucleus
[c] A ribosome
[f] Excellent! The cytoplasm is the watery main body of the cell.
[f] No, the membrane is the outside surface of the cell.
[f] No, the nucleus – a fairly large, round body near the center of eukaryote cells – holds genetic information.
[f] No, ribosomes use messenger RNA to create proteins.
[fx] No. The centrosome is the “microtubule organizing center” for the spindle fibers
[fx] No. The chromosome is two strands of DNA held together at their centers by the “centromere”
l] Nuclear membrane
[fx] No. The nuclear membrane disappears during cell division
l] Spindle fibers
[fx] No. The spindle fibers pull the chromosomes to each side of the dividing cell
[f*] Very good!
