receives proteins and other newly formed materials from the endoplasmic reticulum package them, and distribute them to other parts of the cell.
capture energy from the sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell.
the storage areas of cells for food and other materials needed for the cell.
small, round structures containing chemicals that break down certain materials in the cell.
This membrane protects the nucleus and lets materials in and out of the cell.
thin strands containing genetic material and intsructions for directing the cell's functions.
