Know that cells are made of proteins composed of combinations of amino acids.
Know that specialized structures inside cells in most organisms carry out different functions, including:
Describe the mechanisms for cellular processes (e.g., energy production and storage, transport of molecules, waste disposal, synthesis of new molecules).
Know how the cell membrane controls which ions and molecules enter and leave the cell based on membrane permeability and transport (i.e., osmosis, diffusion, active transport, passive transport).
Explain how cells differentiate and specialize during the growth of an organism, including:
