microinjection Manually using tiny needles to inject microscopic material (such as DNA) directly into cells or cell nuclei; computer screens provide a mag nified view.
microkinetics Movement of chemicals into, out of, and within the cell.
microorganism A microbe; a living thing too small to be seen by the naked eye.
microtubules Cellular organelles common in microorganisms: thin tubes that make structures involved in cellular movement.
mitochondria Animal-cell organelles that reproduce using their own DNA. They metabolize nutrients to provide the cell with energy and are believed to have once been symbiotic bacteria. Chloroplasts are their plant-cell equiva lents.
multicellular Referring to organisms composed of more than one cell often billions of them, arranged in various organs, tissues, and systems.
