The intracellular cell content that posses both
soluble and insoluble constituents is called cytoplasm.
The soluble liquid portion of the cytoplasm is
known as cytosol in which the organelles are bathed. Cytosol is also known as
cell sap. Cell sap contains water, proteins, lipids and numerous other solutes
and is highly viscous (Fig.1.10).
Some important metabolic processes occur in the
cytosol are glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, activation of amino acids and
biosynthesis of fatty acids.
