22+ Animal Cell Diagram Microtubules Pics. An animal cell is a eukaryotic cell that serves as the basic structural and functional unit of tissues and organs in the structure of an animal cell. All organisms are made up of cells (or in some cases, a single cell).
This diagram illustrates an animal cell and its main structures, or parts. The outer diameter of a microtubule is between 23 and 27 nm while the inner diameter is between 11. The cell is the basic unit of life.
In animal cells, microtubules radiate outwards from an organelle in the center of the cell called a centrosome, which is a microtubule organizing center (mtoc).
Microtubules also form cell structures called centrioles and asters. Microtubules allow motor proteins like kinesin and dynein to carry vesicles (packages of stuff that will be delivered to a different place in the cell). Here is a summary of their structure and function. This is distinctly found in the animal cell, which has the ability to replicate or make copies by itself.
