material between the cell membrane and the nucleus
two membranes surrounding the nucleus allowing materials to move both in and out.
long strands of DNA found in the eukaryotic cell nucleus; condense to form chromosomes
a part of the cell containing DNA and RNA and responsible for growth and reproduction; the "command center" of the cell.
The organelle where ribosomes are made, synthesized and partially assembled, located in the nucleus
small particle in the cell on which proteins are assembled; made of RNA and protein. Free floating or attached to the rough ER.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
Part of the cell's internal membrane system studded with ribosomes; helps to transport and export materials through and from the cell.
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
Part of the cell's internal membrane system which helps to transport and export materials throughout the cell and assemble lipid-based components of the cell membrane.
Organelle associated with the ER; modifyies, sorts, and packages proteins and other materials for storage or secretion.
Enzyme-filled organelles serving as "clean-up crews" digesting organic molecules for the cell's use.
Saclike storage structures in the cell.
The site of cellular respiration; the "power house" of the cell!
The site of photosynthesis; energy from sunlight is converted into chemical energy.
Microfilaments and microtubules that help the cell maintain shape and/or move.
Hair-like projections on the cell surface used for locamotion or the movement of fluid over a cell.
Most often a single hair-like that allows a cell to move.
Located near the nucleus; this cell part helps to organize cell division.
The semi-permeable phospholipid bilayer surrounding a cell.
The structure outside of the cell membrane that is used to provide support and protection. Present in plants, alagae, fungi, and many prokaryotes.
