Cell Structure and Function part 1- Organelles
A cell that contains a true nucleus and membrane bound organelles (can be unicellular or multicellular)
A unicellular organism that lacks a nucleus and membrane bound organelles
specialized cell structure that performs a specific function with in the cell
the liquid portion of the cell in which all organelles are found
houses and protects the DNA
a region of the nucleus that produces ribosomes (rRNA)
A double membrane that surrounds the nucleus in the cell
long strands of DNA found in the eukaryotic cell nucleus; condense to form chromosomes
condensed coils of genetic material formed from chromatin as a cell prepares to divide
An organelle that functions in the synthesis of proteins
pathways to transport materials throughout the cell, helps process proteins and move them to the golgi
organelles that package cellular materials and transport them within the cell or out of the cell
cell organelle filled with enzymes needed to break down certain materials in the cell
organelle where cell respiration takes place, energy in glucose is transferred to usable energy in ATP
storage structures for food, water, minerals, waste, very large in plants due to the storage of water reserves
organelle found in cells of plants and some other organisms that captures the energy from sunlight and converts it into chemical energy
a network of fibers that holds the cell together, helps the cell to keep its shape, and aids in movement
structure in an animal cell that helps to organize cell division
controls what comes in and out of the cell
strong layer around the cell membrane in plants, fungi, bacteria and some protists.
