Did you know?
Cellulae contain structures known as organelles, which are similar to organs inside the human body. The function of these organelles is to help keep the cell alive and functioning. Cellulae are able to regulate their internal environment and respond to external stimuli. Cellulae can communicate with each other through chemical signals that are released into the environment.
