  • Specialised Cells
    • If a cell contains many mitochondria, it uses a lot of energy
      • Muscle cell
      • Sperm cell
    • If a cell contains many ribosomes, a lot of protein is produced
      • Gland cells which produce enzymes
    • If a cell has a tail it can swim
      • Sperm cell
    • Receptor cells have special structures that enable them to detect stimuli
      • Cone cells in the eye are sensitive to light
    • Neurons are specialised to carry nerve impulses from the receptor cells to the CNS
    • Plant cells that have many chloroplasts are photosynthesising
      • Mesophyll cells
    • Root hair cells increase the surface area of the root, increasing the efficiency of water and mineral ion absorption
