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:
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
