Having learnt the structure of the cell, we can now understand that each component of the cell is responsible for a specific function. The cell components are made of collection of molecules called as cellular pool, which consists of both inorganic and organic compounds. Inorganic compounds include salts, mineral ions and water. Organic compounds include carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins, nucleotides, hormones and vitamins. Some organic molecules remain in colloidal form in the aqueous intracellular fluid. Others exist in non-aqueous phases like the lipid membrane and cell walls. The cell maintains this pool by the intake and elimination of specific molecules
