Biology: The Cell: 02: Structure - Overview of Cell Boundaries - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Today, we're going to talk about the outer boundary of cells. Every cell has a boundary to separate it from its surroundings. You may already know that plant cells have a rigid outer boundary called a cell wall. Other organisms such as bacteria and fungi also have cell walls. And while their cell walls differ in structure and composition, their cell walls all provide support, shape, and protection for these types of cells. It is essential you remember that animal cells always have a cell membrane but never have a cell wall. So what is the boundary that all cells have? Whether they have a cell wall or not, all cells have a cell membrane, also called a plasma membrane. In a typical animal cell, the cell membrane is a thin, flexible barrier against the outside environment. It's main job is to help with homeostasis, a type of equilibrium in which the cell maintains a relatively constant, stable internal environment. Like all living things, cells require stable internal conditions in order to survive, grow, and reproduce. The cell membrane helps maintain this stable internal environment by being selectively permeable. This means it acts as a gatekeeper to control or select what can get into or out of the cell. We'll learn more about the ways cells accomplish this separately. For now, remember that all cells have a flexible cell membrane, and most cells also have a rigid cell wall. And it's important to know that animal cells never have a cell wall. The cell wall provides support, shape, and protection to the cell. And the cell membrane is selectively permeable in order to help maintain intracellular homeostasis. [music]

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

Jeanne Dolan, BSRN, AlNC
Legal Nurse Consultant
Golden Valley, MN

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

Andrew Needle
Needle Gallagher & Ellenberg, P.A.
Miami, FL

"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services. Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

K. Henderson
Dunaway and Associates
Anderson, SC

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
