Cytosol - Video for Installation

ATP production in mitochondria (purple) can lead to the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that damage mitochondria. When an organelle is beyond repair, the cellular recycling system (green) kicks-in and targets them for mitophagy, a specialized form of mitochondrial degradation.

Image: A primary retinal ganglion cell expresses a red fluorescent protein targeted to mitochondria, a green fluorescent protein fused to the autophagosomal marker LC3, and a cyan fluorescent protein in the cytosol. This image reveals how autophagosomes (green) can contact individual mitochondria (purple), before their ingestion by mitophagy.

            The cytosol is the semi-fluid substance that supports organelles and other cellular components in a cell. The cytosol, along with all of its organelles, compose the cytoplasm. The cytoplasm is the region between the nucleus and the plasma membrane of a eukaryotic cell. Within the cytoplasm of a eukaryotic cell, suspended in the cytosol, are a variety of organelles of specialized form and function. The interior of a prokaryotic cell is also called the cytoplasm.

The last thing I googled was: ”cytosolic receptor” i’m doing bio homework and i was like wait wait what does cytosolic mean again??

My most used phrase(s): it’s whatever, chill

 First word that comes to mind: eukaryotic (yeah still doing bio)

What I last said to a family member: drive safe, see you tuesday

One place that makes me happy and why?: disneyworld because it’s fucking magical. the bench in a park by my parents’ house because it makes me feel safe, and it’s hidden away under a bunch of branches so no one can see me and it’s always nice and shady there in the summer

Three things I can’t live without: wifi, steve rogers, ms word (translated into pretentious language: interconnectedness with others (even those that aren’t physically with me), the belief that hope and goodness are still out there, and the ability to express myself fully)

Something I plan on learning: so many things. how to use solidworks. advanced chemistry. calculus. what my crush’s lips feel like on my own. how the fuck to make something pretty out of the pastels my mother sent me. more spanish. how to paint my toenails without getting it on my toes. the best website to download ebooks from. how to snowboard. how to program my printer so it stops default assuming my paper is 3”x5” and making me print shit twice. how to knit

A piece of advice for all my followers: so this was bound to get fucking depressing since (tw: death) my cousin and my neighbor both died this week soooo. love each other. please. do not ever take someone’s place in your life for granted. always say goodbye. always tell people how you feel about them, even if makes you feel sappy or a little bit uncomfortable. please. you don’t want to lose them with them not knowing about your feelings and how you think of them. speak openly and freely. love easily. don’t wait until you feel like your time is dwindling to let them know. your time is always dwindling. you never know. the first cousin i unexpectedly lost 3 years ago flatlined like an hour after he was hospitalized, and the other one died on the side of the road after he was hit by a truck on thursday. they were both young and healthy. it was completely and totally unexpected for both of them. the last time i saw my cousin alec i didn’t even say hello or goodbye or do more than politely smile at him as i pushed through to get past him. jae i at least know for a fact that i hugged goodbye and grinned at and said how glad i was to see him and talked to. it’s still not enough. so love each other and for god’s sake let each other know. but don’t lie about it. don’t force yourself to love someone you don’t. but cherish the ones that you do (((sorry!! bad timing for this question, i think. also life is too short to pretend to like shitty music and deep condition your hair once a month)

You all have to listen to this song: my song of the month

What do you hate about .... oxidoreductases, the Krebs cycle, oxidative phosphorylation and protein synthesis?

Aww man! This is challenging. I had to think long and hard about this…and couldn’t really come up with anything. However, I do hate that the Krebs Cycle has three different names. It’s confusing if you haven’t been introduced to all the names.

This has nothing to do with the cycle itself, but I hated that my cell bi teacher made it seem like succinate dehydrogenase was floating around in the cytosol when it’s actually bound in the inner mitochondrial membrane! He didn’t mention that at all, but my microbi prof did. It’s part of the TCA Cycle AND the electron transport chain.

You ask the tough questions!
