This is Soma Ribosome‘s polypeptide studio in Cell-fie. Some of the key features include an mRNA door, a rRNA (what ribosomes are made of) and rRNA garden, and happy ribosome helpers. Here, Soma is able to focus on perfecting her polypeptide creations.
Elli Jellyfish is one of my characters in Cell-fie. She lives in VacuOcean and owns a dessert restaurant called “Peanut Butter and Jelly time!” which specializes in peanut butter and jelly themed food. She also employs different species jellyfish, and is also the only human that can communicate with jellyfish.
Her menu includes her most famous peanut butter and jelly sandwich, fruit jelly ice cream in a peanut butter cone, peanut butter and jelly alternating layered sponge cake, and more. She also has the ability to grow peanut butter and jelly fruit (not shown here), which serves as the main ingredient in her secret sauce.
Likes: Drawing, swimming, cooking, picnics, making friends, and fruit.
Dislikes: The desert, sharp objects, and vegetables.
Thylakoid Island is a location in Cell-fie. It’s located on Chloroplanet and inhabits positive protons and excited electrons. Glucose apples and glucose berries, the source of food, grow here. The chlorophyll farms also make it the planet’s largest source of chlorophyll.

Mito Mitokondria is a character in Cell-fie. She lives in the Matrix City, where she is the ATP guardian. Her job is to make sure that each ATP goes to the correct organelle in Cell Country to keep the power running smoothly so all the proteins will be happily phosphorylated. In addition, she also makes sure that the citric cycle runs smoothly, and there is a proton gradient with higher concentration in the inner membrane space so that ATP can be continually made by ATP Synthy (ATP Synthase’s name).
The inner membrane of the mitokondria is also made of bouncy sillicone jello.
Nella is a character in Cell-fie. She lives inside a nucleus and enjoys studying genetic codes since her job is to make mRNA. In addition, she grows ribosome succulents made from the rRNA that her nucleolus couch has produced. The windows are nuclear pores that lead to the cytoplasm where she releases her ribosome succulents once they are fully grown. Ribosomes help her bring her creations to life by translating the mRNA that she has made into proteins.
Nella’s hair is also made of chromatin, consisting of tightly wound up DNA and positively charged histone proteins to hold it all together in an orderly fashion.
