What are microbodies ? Describe their different types.
Microbodies. Microbodies are minute ovoid or spherical membrane bound structures found in both plants and animals. These structures contain varous enzymes. For example-spherosomes. glyoxisomes, peroxisomes etc.
Receptor molecules are specific proteins in the cell's plasma membrane that receive chemical signals from outside the cell. When such chemical signals bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular response.
