Caption: Budding yeast cell. Computer artwork of a section through a yeast (Candida albicans) cell that is reproducing asexually. A daughter cell (top left) is budding from the parent cell. A mitochondrion (red) and other cellular components are moving into the daughter cell along cytoskeletal filaments (yellow). Mitochondria produce the cell's energy, while the cytoskeleton gives it its shape. The nucleus (purple) contains the cell's genetic information. Inside the nucleus is the nucleolus (round), which synthesises ribosomal ribonucleic acid (RNA). The outer surface of the cell wall is covered with fimbriae, which attach the cell to other cells and aid movement. C. albicans causes the disease thrush.
