What is the function of a red blood cell and its cytoplasm?
To transport oxygen from lungs to tissue for aerobic respiration. Cell is very flexible. Cytoplasm is filled with haemoglobin to carry oxygen.
1 of 11
What is the function of a muscle cell and its protein fibres?
It contracts so that structures can be brought together. Protein fibres in cytoplasm can shorten cell when energy is available.
2 of 11
What is the function of a ciliated cell and its cilia?
It has a layer of tiny hairs called the cilia to move and push mucus from one place to another. Can transport trapped dust.
3 of 11
What is the function of a motor nerve cell and its axon, fatty sheath and many branched endings?
it conducts nerve impulses. Axon=long fibre in which impulses travel along. Fatty sheath gives electrical insulation. Many-branched ending connects with many other cells.
4 of 11
What is the function of a root hair cell its the long extension?
It absorbs minerals and water from soil. Has a long extension(a root hair) to increase surface area for absorption.
