5.4 Subcellular components of eukaryotic cells

The subcellular components of eukaryotic cells include, most importantly, the nucleus with its associated nucleolus (Pollard et al., 2017a) and all the extranuclear, or ‘cytoplasmic’, components, which include: ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, cytoskeleton, mitochondria, vacuoles and vesicles (Alberts et al., 2014). We will describe each of these separately in the sections which follow this. Use the navigation bar on the left of your screen to navigate 'through the cell'.
