Cells & Microbes
Terms in this set (16)
NUCLEUS - (Plant & Animal Cells)
this is the "brain" or control center of the cell which contains the genetic material or DNA. It tells the cell what to do.
CELL MEMBRANE - (Plant & Animal Cells)
This organelle is in both the plant and animal cell. It gives the cell it's shape and controls the substances that pass in and out of the cell.
CYTOPLASM - (Plant & Animal Cells)
This is the gel-like substance or liquid is found in both animal and plant cells. The cell is filled with this liquid which holds all of the organelles and allowing them to float and move within the cell.
CHLOROPLASTS - only in plant cells
The food factories of a plant where photosynthesis takes place. This organelle is green because of a substance called chlorophyll. It is the reason that plants have green stems and leaves.
CELL WALL- only in plant cells
This is the stiff, outer covering of a plant cell. It allows water, oxygen, and carbon dioxide to pass in and out of the plant cell. It also helps to give the plant its structure.
LARGE VACUOLES - only ONE in plant cells
There is only one of this large organelle in a plant cell. It is responsible for storing water and keeps the plant from drying out by releasing water into the cell when necessary.
device that produces magnified images of structures that are too small to see with the human eye
The process by which chloroplasts in a plant cell capture energy in sunlight and uses it to make food.
organelles (Plant & Animal Cells)
A tiny cell structure found inside a cell that carries out a specific function or jobs within the cell.
Multicellular - (Plants & Animals)
Organisms that are made up of more than one cell.
Unicellular - (Bacteria)
A single celled organism
Living creatures that are too small to see with the naked eye; they can be harmful or beneficial to humans.
A disease-causing agent that is too tiny to be seen by the ordinary microscope, that may be a living organism or may be a very special kind of protein molecule, and that can only multiply when inside the cell of an organism
Tiny little organisms that are everywhere around us. We can't see them without a microscope because they are so small, but they are in the air, on our skin, in our bodies, in the ground, and all throughout nature; they are single-celled microorganisms.
Probiotics - (Beneficial Microbe)
a benficial microorganism (such as lactobacillus) that when consumed or eaten (as in a food or a dietary supplement) maintains or restores beneficial bacteria to the digestive tract.
the basic structural and functional unit of all organisms
