ⓘ List of topics in cell biology

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to cell biology:

Cell biology – A branch of biology that includes study of cells regarding their physiological properties, structure, and function; the organelles they contain; interactions with their environment; and their life cycle, division, and death. This is done both on a microscopic and molecular level. Cell biology research extends to both the great diversities of single-celled organisms like bacteria and the complex specialized cells in multicellular organisms like humans. Formerly, the field was called cytology.

                                     

1. A type of

Cell biology can be described as all of the following:

  • Branch of natural science – The branch of science concerned with the description, prediction, and understanding of natural phenomena based on observational and empirical evidence. Validity, accuracy, and social mechanisms ensuring quality control, such as peer review and repeatability of findings, are among the criteria and methods used for this purpose.
  • Branch of biology – The study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy.
  • Branch of science – A systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.
  • Academic discipline – Focused study in one academic field or profession. A discipline incorporates expertise, people, projects, communities, challenges, studies, inquiry, and research areas that are strongly associated with a given discipline.
                                     

2. Essence of cell biology

  • Cellular respiration – The metabolic reactions and processes that take place in a cell or across the cell membrane to convert biochemical energy from fuel molecules into adenosine triphosphate ATP and then release the cells waste products.
  • Cell – The structural and functional unit of all known living organisms. It is the smallest unit of an organism that is classified as living, and also known as the building block of life. Cell comes from the Latin cellula, meaning, a small room. Robert Hooke first coined the term in his book, Micrographia, where he compared the structure of cork cells viewed through his microscope to that of the small rooms or monks "cells" of a monastery.
  • Lipid bilayer – A membrane composed of two layers of lipid molecules usually phospholipids. The lipid bilayer is a critical component of the cell membrane.
  • Cell theory – The scientific theory which states that all organisms are composed of one or more cells. Vital functions of an organism occur within cells. All cells come from preexisting cells and contain the hereditary information necessary for regulating cell functions and for transmitting information to the next generation of cells.
  • Cell division – The process of one parent cell separating into two or more daughter cells.
  • Endosymbiotic theory – The evolutionary theory that certain eukaryotic organelles originated as separate prokaryotic organisms which were taken inside the cell as endosymbionts.
  • Cell biology – formerly cytology The study of cells.
                                     

3. Aspects of cells

  • Homeostasis – The property of either an open system or a closed system, especially a living organism, that regulates its internal environment so as to maintain a stable, constant condition.
  • Life – A condition of growth through metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally.
  • Microscopic – The scale of objects, like cells, that are too small to be seen easily by the naked eye and which require a lens or microscope to see them clearly.
  • Cellular differentiation – A concept in developmental biology whereby less specialized cells become a more specialized cell type in multicellular organisms.
  • Unicellular – Organisms which are composed of only one cell.
  • Multicellular – Organisms consisting of more than one cell and having differentiated cells that perform specialized functions.
  • Tissues – A collection of interconnected cells that perform a similar function within an organism.
