The Inner Life of the Cell
Harvard University selected XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell, illustrating mechanisms that allow a white blood cell to sense its surroundings and respond to an external stimulus. This award winning piece was the first topic in a series of animations XVIVO is creating for Harvard's educational website BioVisions at Harvard.
The Inner Life of the Cell - Protein Packing [Narrated] [HD]
Protein Packing strives to more accurately depict the molecular chaos in each and every cell, with proteins jittering around in what may seem like random motion. Proteins occupy roughly 40% of the cytoplasm, creating an environment that risks unintentional interaction and aggregation. Via diffusion and motor protein transport, these molecules are directed to sites where they are needed.
The Secret Life of a Cell, Part 1 - Organelles
Each cell in the human body is specialized to have a specific job and works together with other cells to orchestrate the symphony of unconscious biological processes.
Part 1 of this new series introduces the cell membrane, cytoplasm, and the organelles such as the cytoskeleton, microtubules, centrosome, and vesicles, the basic structures of animal cells, and describes their general function.
The Inner Life of the Cell + Powering the Cell: Mitochondria
This video takes you on a microscopic journey of a cell and is comprised of two animations entitled The Inner Life of the Cell and Powering the Cell: Mitochondria.
Harvard University selected XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell, illustrating mechanisms that allow a white blood cell to sense its surroundings and respond to an external stimulus.
Beginning at 03:04 the microscopic world of mitochondria is also explored. This part of the video highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) -- mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity.
Biology: Cell Structure
This animation shows you the function of plant and animal cells for middle school and high school biology, including organelles like the nucleus, nucleolus, DNA (chromosomes), ribosomes, mitochondria, etc. Also included are ATP molecules, cytoskeleton, cytoplasm, microtubules, proteins, chloroplasts, chlorophyll, cell walls, cell membrane, cilia, flagellae, etc.

A Day in the Life of a Motor Protein
The primary aim of the Hoogenraad research lab at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, is to understand how intracellular protein transport underlies the development and function of nerve cells. During this 5 min movie we follow John, a motor protein, who has to transport his package to the right destination in the nerve cell, illustrating the relevance and mechanisms of proper intracellular transport in the nervous system.

Powering the Cell: Mitochondria
Together Harvard University and XVIVO developed this 3D animation journey for Harvard's undergraduate Molecular and Cellular Biology students about the microscopic world of mitochondria. The animation highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) -- mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity. This piece is the second in a series of award winning animations XVIVO is creating for Harvard's educational website BioVisions at Harvard. The first program, Inner Life of the Cell, received international acclaim and can be seen both on our website and the BioVisions site.
Inner Life of a Cell | Protein Packing
Harvard University and XVIVO come together again to add to the growing series of scientific animations for BioVisions -- Harvard's multimedia lab in the department of Molecular and Cellular Biology. 'Protein Packing' strives to more accurately depict the molecular chaos in each and every cell, with proteins jittering around in what may seem like random motion. Proteins occupy roughly 40% of the cytoplasm, creating an environment that risks unintentional interaction and aggregation. Via diffusion and motor protein transport, these molecules are directed to sites where they are needed.
CellX: The Inner Life of the Cell (HarvardX)
This animation gives you a glimpse into the inner workings of the cell. It provides an overview of the structures of the cell.
Sign-up for the course “Cell Biology: Mitochondria” on edX:
The cell is a powerful case study to help us explore the functional logic of living systems. All organisms, from single-celled algae to complex multicellular organisms like us, are made up of cells. In this course, you will learn the how and why of biology by exploring the function of the molecular components of cells, and how these cellular components are organized in a complex hierarchy.
This course is designed to explore the fundamentals of cell biology. The overarching goal is for learners to understand, from a human-centered perspective, that cells are evolving ensembles of macromolecules that in turn form complex communities in tissues, organs, and multicellular organisms.
We will focus, in particular, on the mitochondrion, the organelle that powers the cell. In this context, we will look at the processes of cell metabolism. Finally, we will examine the F1F0 ATP synthase, the molecular machine that is responsible for the synthesis of most of the ATP that your cells require to do work. To underscore the importance of cell biology to our lives, we will address questions of development and disease and implications of science in society.
By the end of four weeks, we hope learners will have a deep intuition for the functional logic of a cell. Together we will ask how do things work within a cell, why do they work the way they do, and how are we impacted?
Join us as we explore the extraordinary and wonderfully dynamic world of the cell.
What you'll learn:
- How the internal structure and organization of a cell provides an understanding of how and why a cell works
- The role mitochondria play in the cell and why it is important for a cell to make ATP
- How cells metabolize food to provide the molecules necessary for mitochondrial function
- How the structure of the F1F0 ATP synthase leads to the production of ATP
- What experimental techniques are used to investigate mitochondrial structure and function in the laboratory

Your sickness is within you, though you do not realize,
And your cure is within, yet you do not see.
You claim that you are nothing but a tiny entity,
Yet wrapped up inside of you is the greatest universe.
You are the clear book, through whose letters...
All that is secret is revealed and made known.
So you have no need for anything outside of you,
Your consciousness is within you, though you do not know.
(Divan-e-Ali Ibnay Abi Talib)
Imam Ali Ibnay Abi Talib many many moons ago, more than 14 centuries ago yet most do not know/comprehend the way it should be known)
دواؤك فيك وما تشعر *** وداؤك منك وما تُبصر
وتحسب أنّك جرم صغير*** وفيك انطوى العالم الأكبر
وأنت الكتاب المبين الذي*** بأحرفه يظهر المُضمَر
فلا حاجة لك في خارج *** يُخَبَّرعنك بما سُطًّرُ
الامام عليّ (ع)
Courtesty nucleusanimation and Phelan8508 youtube. Animation by Harvard University. In this clip Nuclei, proteins and lipids move with bug-like authority, slithering, gliding and twisting through 3D space. Each of the things in the animation are going on in every one of your cells in your body all the time. There are some surprising things. For instance, in the animation there's a motor protein that's sort of walking along a line, carrying this round sphere of lipids. It really does look like its out for a stroll, like a character in a science fiction film or animation. But based on all the data, it's pretty accurate rendering. FOLLOWING is a quote attributed to Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib. Perhaps this clip may be considered as a material interpretation of that quote. The spiritual possibilities from within are said to be even greater and limitless -- YOUR remedy is within you, but you do not sense it. Your sickness is from you, but you do not perceive it. You presume you are a small entity, but within you is enfolded the entire Universe. You are indeed the Evident Book, by whose alphabet the Hidden becomes Manifest. Therefore you have no need to look beyond yourself. What you seek is within you, if only you reflect.
