Hi, I'm Michael Maidaa, and this is cytoplasmic fluid of a plant cell. The cytoplasmic fluid is basically everything except the nucleus and the other organelles. So, for example, we have a cell here. We have the nucleus surrounded by the endoplasmic reticulum and other organelles such as mitochondria and several others. However, what we are focusing on is all this area in between. This is the cytoplasmic fluid. The cytoplasmic fluid is made up of 80% water and 20% protein. However, it's a very jelly-like material and viscus so it's able to hold all the organelles in place. Also it helps with movement in the cell. So, the main purpose of the cytoplasmic fluid as I just discussed is holding organelles in place with the organelles basically being the nucleus, mitochondria and other organelles and also for cell movement. I'm Michael Maidaa and this has been cytoplasmic fluid of a plant cell.
