The Klingon retrovirus known as nehret destroyed the cells of its host by attacking their cytoplasmic membranes. (VOY: "Prophecy")

The medical book Gray's Anatomy mentioned in chapter one that "in the higher organisms a cell may be defined as a nucleated mass of protoplasm of microscopic size. Its two essentials, therefore, are: a soft jelly-like material, similar to that found in the ovum, and usually styled cytoplasm, and a small spherical body embedded in it, and termed a nucleus. Some of the unicellular protozoa contain no nuclei..." (VOY: "Message in a Bottle")

The biochemical analysis of a symbiogenetic orchid discovered in the Delta Quadrant by Tuvok and Neelix in 2372, which was later a contributing factor in the creation of Tuvix, was found to contain the same elements as many plants including chloroplasts, lysosomal enzymes, and cytoplasmic proteins. (VOY: "Tuvix")
