My structure is similar to other cells however cells however there are specializations that helps in my overall function. I have a brain(nucleus) which contain genetic instructions e.g codons for necessary proteins. The endoplasmic reticulum is connected to my nucleus. I have a rough ER as smooth ER. Rough ER are studed with ribosom which synthesises mRNA to from proteins. Smooth ER are involved in lipid metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism and detoxification.
In addition I have several other organelles which helps in the overall function of the cell. Golgi apparatus packages and distributes molecules, lysosomes are my digestive system, edosomes sort molecules, peroxisomes breaks down fatty acid chains and mitochondria produces energy.
Because of my specific function I pay close attention to energy production. I have more mitochondrion than other cells which produce ATP(energy molecule). Specific pathways are regulated according the demand of the organism for energy. For example glycolysis, gluconeogenysis, citric acid cycle.
My entire tissue contracts by means of specific ion and hormone pathways. The brain sends a signal along neurons. Acetyl choline causes ions to diffuse in and out of a neurotransmitter junction. An action potential causes the muscle to contract.
