the breakdown of toxins by liver cells

The cytoplasm is a jelly-like substance, made up of mostly water, that keeps the various organelles within the cell separate from each other. Many of the cell’s biochemical reactions, like metabolic processes, occur within the cytoplasm.
Proteins are necessary for the cell to carry out their essential functions. Ribosomes are made out of one large piece and one smaller unit. Both of the subunits in the ribosomes assist in the creation of proteins when they come together with messenger RNA. Though some ribosomes can be found in the cytoplasm itself, most of the ribosomes are found in the endoplasmic reticulum. 

There are gaps in a cell’s plasma membrane referred to as pores or channels. These pores or channels are made out of proteins and they control what chemicals, like water and food, are able to move into the cell.

Deoxyribonucleic Acid, or DNA, is frequently referred to as “the blueprints for life” and it contains the generic information that allows cells to reproduce and perform their respective functions. The DNA of a cell is held within the nucleus of the cells, specifically within the nucleolus.

The cell’s nucleus is often referred to as the “brain” of the cell, or the control center. It is the largest part of the cell within the cytoplasm. Cells that have nuclei are found in plants, animals, algae, protozoa, and fungi. Bacterial cells do not have a nucleus. The nucleus is home to a smaller structure within it called the nucleolus
