Cytoplasmnoun

(cytology) The contents of a cell except for the nucleus. It includes cytosol, organelles, vesicles, and the cytoskeleton.

Cytoskeletonnoun

A matrix of intercellular protein, in the forms of microfilaments and microtubules, that provide some rigidity to cells

Cytoplasmnoun

The substance of the body of a cell, as distinguished from the karyoplasma, or substance of the nucleus.

Cytoskeletonnoun

An arrangement of microtubules, microfilaments, and larger filaments within a cell serving to provide structural support of components of the cell, and to transport components from one part of the cell to another; the filaments are composed of protein and form a latticelike arrangement which may change rapidly with time.

Cytoplasmnoun

the protoplasm of a cell excluding the nucleus

Cytoskeletonnoun

a microscopic network of actin filaments and microtubules in the cytoplasm of many living cells that gives the cell shape and coherence

Cytoplasm

In cell biology, the cytoplasm is all of the material within a eukaryotic cell, enclosed by the cell membrane, except for the cell nucleus. The material inside the nucleus and contained within the nuclear membrane is termed the nucleoplasm.

Cytoskeleton

The cytoskeleton is a complex, dynamic network of interlinking protein filaments present in the cytoplasm of all cells, including bacteria and archaea. It extends from the cell nucleus to the cell membrane and is composed of similar proteins in the various organisms.
