(sī'tō-sol),
Fluid components of the cytoplasm exclusive of mitochondria, the endoplasmic reticulum, and other membranous and particulate components.
[cyto- + "sol," abbrev. of soluble]

(sī′tə-sôl′, -sŏl′)
n.
The fluid component of cytoplasm, excluding the organelles and insoluble components such as cytoskeletal protein filaments.

cytosol

[sī′tōsôl]
the liquid medium of the cytoplasm, i.e., cytoplasm minus organelles and nonmembranous insoluble components.

cytoplasm

The aqueous gel-like cell content of a living cell, which is located outside the nucleus and inside the plasma membrane, exclusive of the nucleus, organelles, ribosomes, Golgi apparatus, cytoskeleton, aggregates of storage compounds and other inclusions.

cy·to·sol

(sī'tō-sol)
Cytoplasm exclusive of the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and other membranous components.
[cyto- + "sol," abbrev. of soluble]

cytosol

The cell contents situated between the cell membrane and the nucleus, less the endoplasmic reticulum, the mitochondria and the other structured organelles.

cytosol

the non-viscous, soluble portion of the cytoplasm including dissolved solutes but excluding any particulate matter. In the amoeba, cytosol forms the inner part of the organism, surrounded by cytogel which is more viscous.

cytosol,

n the totality of the intracellular substance exclusive of mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum components.

cytosol

the liquid medium of the cytoplasm, e.g. cytoplasm minus organelles and nonmembranous insoluble components.
