Science Cell Organelles

STUDY
PLAY
Nucleus
Holds the cell's DNA and is the control center.
Lysosome
Digests food particles, wastes, foreign invaders, and cell parts.
Vacuole
Stores water and other materials.
Mitochondria
Breaks down food to make ATP
Smooth ER
Makes lipids and breaks down toxic material.
Rough ER
Has ribosomes attached to it. The ribosomes make most of the cells protien and the rough ER distributes throughout the cell.
Chloroplast
Uses sunlight to make food through photosynthesis.
Golgi complex
UPS!!!!!!! Processes and transports material such as protien out of the cell.
Ribosome
Amino acids are hooked together in this organelle to produce protiens. Can be found attached to the rough ER or free floating around the cell.
