Difference between protoplast and protoplasm
- a biological unit consisting of a nucleus and the body of cytoplasm with which it interacts
For measurements, only root protoplasts with a dense cytoplasm and no, or little, vacuolation were selected.
Poly - L - Ornithine can change electric charge on the surface of protoplasts or foreign DNA.
The rest of my body stood up well to this assault but every few seconds I had the eerie sensation that I was back in my old body, a ghostly superimposition on the living protoplast, as the spinal chord projected its agony outward.
- the substance of a living cell (including cytoplasm and nucleus)
Indeed, whenever protoplasmic materials are being oxidized (the process referred to in sec. 15 as katabolism) heat is being set free.
The body of the nerve cell, known as the cyton, consists of a finely fibrillated protoplasmic material, of a reddish or yellowishbrown color, which occasionally presents patches of a deeper tint, caused by the aggregation of pigment granules at one side of the nucleus, as in the substantia nigra and locus cæruleus of the brain.
Her figure can only be described as protoplasmic, amorphous; her age, too, is indeterminate, but is presumably in the fifties.
