Types Of Human Cells And Their Functions

The cell is the unit of life, which means it is the starting point of a Lifecycle. Here, multiple types of human cells and their functions will be discussed. The reason behind discussing this topic is that a human being must aware of all types of different cells and their functions. May be, it is not possible to understand each and every of them but there are some common and most important cells which must be known to an individual. The reader must be thinking that what would be the benefit of it. Well, it becomes quite easy to take care of something in a better way if some are aware of a particular thing. The same thing goes with cells and body; after all, it is related to none other than our life.

The basic nature of the cell is to keep dividing into further cells and after nine months, this dividation gives birth to a baby. This is the process of metabolism and it continues with the formation of new cells. These new cells replaced the older ones and keep generating the body. This is the basic nature and function of all the cells. But this basic format has different patterns which mean because there are multiple cells present in the body their functioning is also completely different. It is the process of generating and some very interesting facts are associated with it. Some of them are that every fifth day the complete surface of our small intestine restores, the skeleton is also getting renewed every second year, and every 27th day the skin of our entire body changes. These are some of the facts which are associated with the functioning of the cells. There are multiple types of human cells and their functions have been discussed in the school/college books but if someone has missed it due to lack of

interest then here get the chance to know about them.

Some of the cells are like Mitochondria, ER or Endoplasmic Reticulum, Golgi complex, Lysosomes, and Peroxisomes. There are the different types of human cells and their functions will be discussed.

Mitochondria, it is also known as the ‘power plant’ because it is the powerhouse of the cells. It is the organelle which is capable to convert the energy in the nutrient which yields us the energy in that form which can be used by the cell. The nutrients are like the protein, fat and carbohydrate. This process is known as the aerobic process which uses the inhaled oxygen, water, and enzymes and also some other compounds.

ER is basically calling for a continuous network of the tubes which is formed by the outer membrane of a cell nucleus. They are of two types: the smooth ER and the Rough ER.

Golgi complex is known for covering the proteins and known as the covering package which is used in the process of exporting from the cell which is known as the cytoplasm.

These were some types of human cells and their functions there. There are many more types of cells present in a human body like Lysosomes which are the digestive system of a cell and Peroxisomes which contains enzymes in order to detoxify the harmful chemicals. They all are highly important for the body and an individual’s life depends on them completely.
