    The cell membrane controls what's going in and out'je
    The Ribosomes make proteins it depends on where they're staying
    They could be attached onto the parts of the rough ER
    Or they're floating in cytoplasm

    Cells work night and day
    Nucleus contains DNA
    They working night and day
    Lysosomes break down large molecules
    And recycle them
    Rough endoplasmic reticulem
    Making lipid parts, making lipid parts

    Then the golgi apparatus
    Modifies the small proteins
    Then the vesicles they move the product
    In or out - of the cell
    Then they're shipped to wherever they need to go

    They organize when cells divide they make it look so fancy
    It has a cytoskeleton that gives the cell its shape
    And transports the finished products

    Paul Andersen explains how signal transduction pathways are used by cells to convert chemical messages to cellular action. Epinephrine is used as a sample messenger to trigger the release of glucose from cells in the liver. The G-Protein, adenylyl cyclase, cAMP, and protein kinases are all used as illustrative examples of signal transduction. A review of the concepts is also included.

    I went into a cell, to get out of the rain,
    ........C ........................................G ...........C
    and there was the gatekeeper, the cell membrane.
    I went into a cell, and what did I see,
    the mitochondria, it's the energy factory.
    I went into a cell, and said who drives this bus
    and found myself talking to the boss, the nucleus.
    I went into a cell, to recover from a spasm,
    and found myself swimming in some clear cytoplasm.

    I went into the nucleus to ask how to get home,
    and got genetic info, stored in a chromosome.
    I went into a cell, and stretching o' so far,
    was a thin and wavy network, it's called the E.R.
    I went into a cell, trying not to be perplexed,
    by the packaging and sorting in the Golgi complex.
    I went into a cell, and said who makes proteins here?
    and somebody responded it's the ribosome, my dear.
    I went into a cell, and was feeling pretty fine,
    till a lysosome engulfed me, and dissolved me in enzymes.
    I went into a cell, and was feeling pretty nimble,
    till a centriole lassoed me, tying me up in a spindle.

    I went into a plant cell to see how trees get so tall,
    and all around the outside was a rigid cell wall.
    I went into a plant cell, why's it so green I asked?
    'Cause I make food from sunlight, said a green chloroplast.
    I went into a plant cell to see how plant cells store food,
    when a vacuole informed me that he was the storage dude.

    So when you go inside a cell, remember what you see,
    There's over a trillion cells in both you and me.
    Just sing this song if you ever feel confusion,
    and remember active transport is the opposite of diffusion.

    Naynesh is a recruitment consultant at CK Science and specialises in the permanent recruitment of scientists and in this video he speaks to you about beginning or developing your career working with Molecular and Cell Biology.

    Introduction to Molecular and Cell Biology
    Molecular biology is the study of biology at the molecular level. The field overlaps with other areas of biology and chemistry, particularly genetics and biochemistry.

    Cell biology studies the properties of cells including their, their structure, the organelles they contain, interactions with their environment, their life cycle, division and death.

    Molecular and cellular biology are interrelated, since most of the properties and functions of a cell can be described at the molecular level.

    Molecular and cell biology encompass many biological fields including: biotechnology, developmental biology, physiology, genetics and microbiology.

    Where are most companies located?
    Most companies operating in the field of Molecular / Cell biology tend to operate as a CRO (Contract Research Organisation).

    The main industry hubs in the UK where these types of companies are often found are mainly located in:
    Cambridge, Scotland, North West, Leeds, Wiltshire and London.

    What skills do employers look for?
    • Employers tend to look for candidates who have studied biological science degrees such as Biotechnology, Life Science, Cell Biology or Molecular Biology.
    • In addition to any qualifications, employers may also be interested in scientists who have worked in a GMP regulated environment.
    • Experience -- It's a good idea to get some experience in industry, either a gap year or some voluntary experience. A good lab based dissertation or a summer placement.

    If you're interested in pursuing a career in the subject of Molecular and Cell Biology, please feel free to get in touch and discuss what career opportunities may be open to you. T: 0114 283 9956 or email [email protected]
