Embryogenesis in higher plants: An overview. Plant Cell 5, 1361–1369. CHAPTER TWO The Protoplast: Plasma Membrane, Nucleus, and Cytoplasmic Organelles Cells represent the smallest structural and functional units of life (Sitte, 1992). Living organisms consist of single cells or of complexes of cells. Cells vary greatly in size, form, structure, and function. Some are measured in micrometers, others in millimeters, and still others in centimeters (fibers in certain plants). Some cells perform a number of functions; others are specialized in their activities.
Although this model of membrane structure has been superseded by the fluid mosaic model (see below), the term unit membrane remains a useful designation for a visually definable three-ply membrane. Among the internal membranes of eukaryotic cells are those surrounding the nucleus, mitochondria, and plastids, which are characteristic components of plant cells. The cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells also contains systems of membranes (the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus) and a complex network of nonmembranous protein fi laments (actin fi laments and microtubules) called the cytoskeleton.
