Hi, I'm Michael Maidaa, and this is what is the region between the nucleus and the cell membrane that holds the organelles. The answer to this question is the cytoplasm. So here we have a basic cell. The cell has the nucleus and the cell membrane which I drew first. It also has several other structures such as the rough ER, the smooth ER, and also mitochondria and several other organelles. This isn't what's important for this question. It's all the space that's not occupied by organelles which is the cytoplasmic fluid. Which is 80 percent water and 20 percent proteins. With this combination we form a very jelly like substance that is viscous and able to hold all the organelles in place. This is very important because we can't have the organelles moving around freely. The cytoplasmic fluid also helps with cell movement and changes in shape. So the purpose is to hold organelles, hold organelles in place and also with movement of the cell. All this is called the cytoplasm. I'm Michael Maidaa, and this has been what is the region between the nucleus and the cell membrane that holds the organelles.
