- See also changes related to Cell (biology), or pages that link to Cell (biology) or to this page or whose text .
- Science : The organized body of knowledge based on non–trivial refutable concepts that can be verified or rejected on the base of observation and experimentation
- Biology : The science of life — of complex, self-organizing, information-processing systems living in the past, present or future.
- Cell biology : The study of the components of biological cells and their interactions.
- Life : Living systems, of which biologists seek the commonalities distinguishing them from nonliving systems.
- Cell differentiation : The process by which cells become structurally and functionally specialized.
- Cell division : The process by which a parent cell divides into two or more daughter cells.
- Cell membrane : The outer surface of a cell which encloses its contents.
- Cell migration : Add brief definition or description
- Cell nucleus : Membrane-enclosed organelle found in eukaryotic cells, containing most of the cell's genetic material, organized as multiple long linear DNA molecules in complex with a large variety of proteins, such as histones, to form chromosomes.
- Cell signalling : The processing of information in a biological cell.
- Chloroplast : The green organelles found in many higher plant cells and protists. Internal thylakoid membranes contain chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes place.
- Cytoskeleton : The mechanical scaffold, made up of fibrous proteins, determining the shape of a cell.
- Golgi apparatus : An organelle in eukaryotic cells that modifies many proteins and lipids from the endoplasmic reticulum; it is named after Camillo Golgi who discovered it in 1898.
- Ion channel : Gated, ion-selective glycoproteins that traverse membranes. The stimulus for channel gating can be a membrane potential, drug, transmitter, cytoplasmic messenger, or a mechanical deformation.
- Mitochondrium : Add brief definition or description
- Organelle : Specialized subunit within a cell that has a specific function, and is usually separately enclosed within its own lipid membrane, found in all eukaryotic cells.
- Resting potential : Potential difference between the two sides of the membrane of a nerve cell when the cell is not conducting an impulse, the resting potential for a neuron being between 50 and 100 millivolts.
- Synapse : Contact point between neurons and other cells, crucial for nerve signalling
- Biochemistry : The chemistry of living things; a field of both biology and chemistry.
- Endosymbiotic theory : Theory on the origins of mitochondria and plastids (e.g. chloroplasts), which are organelles of eukaryotic cells.
- Immune system : Add brief definition or description
- Microbiology : The study of microorganisms (overlapping with areas of virology, bacteriology, mycology, and parasitology).
- Microscope : An instrument that magnifies the image of small objects such that they become observable by humans.
- Molecular biology : The study of molecular interactions within cells.
- Origin of life : How did self-replicating biochemistry and cells arise from the prebiotic world approximately four billion years ago? Aka abiogenesis.
- Tissue : Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Tissue (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
