An organelle found in plants and photosynthetic protists. Enclosed by two concentric membranes. Absorbs sunlight and uses it to power the synthesis of organic food molecules (sugar)
Long appendage that propels protists through the water and moves fluids across surface of many tissue cells in animals.
Straight hollow tube made of globular proteins called tubulins. Form the basis of the structure and movement of cilia and flagella.
The combination of DNA and proteins that constitute chromosomes; often used to refer to the diffuse, very extended form taken by the chromosomes when a eukaryotic cell is not dividing. (DNA strand)
An organelle in eukaryotic cells consisting of stacks of membranous sacs that modify, store, and ship products of endoplasmic reticulum.
An organelle in eukaryotic cells where cellular respiration occurs. Enclosed by two concentric membranes, where most of the cell's ATP is made.
A cell organelle consisting of RNA and protein organized into two subunits and functioning as the site of protein synthesis in the cytoplasm. (Synthesizes proteins)
A structure that connects tissue cells to one another
Short appendage that propels some protists through the water and moves fluids across the surface of many tissue cells in animals.
Digestive organelle in eukaryotic cells; contains hydrolytic enzymes that digest the cell's food and waste.
Structure within the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell where ribosomal RNA is made and assembled with proteins to make ribosomal subunits (holds RNA)
extensive membranous network in a eukaryotic cell. Makes more membrane
Extensive membranous network in eukaryotic cell. Detoxifies enzymes and synthesizes lipids
Structure in animal cell composed of microtubule triplets. Divides cells for reproduction.
Substance in which the cells of an animal tissue are embedded, helps hold the cell together and regulates cell behavior
Protein fiber that makes up cytoskeleton of eukaryotic cell
Genetic control center of a eukaryotic cell, stores genetic information (DNA)
Membrane-enclosed sac part of endomembrane system of eukaryotic cell. Stores things, (waste, water, etc.)
Encloses cytoplasm of a cell, contains material within the cell
cell organelle containing enzymes that catalyze the production and breakdown of hydrogen peroxide.
definite boundary or wall that is part of the outer structure of certain cells, as a plant cell.
