Control center of the cell, storing the genetic material, DNA (in eukaryotic cells).
Rod-shaped structures made of DNA and proteins.
Surrounds the nucleus (nuclear envelope)
Where ribosomes are made.
A complex, extensive network that transports materials throughout the inside of a cell.
ER that is densely studded with ribosomes and is where proteins that are exported from the cell are manufactured.
ER has relatively few or no ribosomes attached and specialize in making lipids, such as brain and intestinal cells.
Site of protein synthesis
The packaging and distribution center of the cell.
Organelles responsible for releasing stored energy in food by converting glucose to ATP during the process of cellular respiration.
Vesicles that contain the cell's digestive enzymes which cause the rapid breakdown of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates.
Small, membrane bound organelles that contain enzymes involved in metabolic reactions like the breakdowns of long fatty acid chains.
Store material such as water, salts, proteins, and carbohydrates.
A mesh-like network of protein fibers, found in the cytoplasm of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells which helps maintain the shape of the cell and helps transports material.
Small cylindrical structures found in animal cells that are involved in the regulation of cell division.
Short hair like projections used for moving the cell, moving substances outside the cell and can be used for sensory devices.
Long whip like projections responsible for the movement of some animal cells, bacteria or protists.
A thick, rigid mesh of cellulose fibers that surrounds the outside of the cell membrane creating an inflexible barrier that provides support and protection to the plant cell.
Organelles that make food through photosynthesis.
Large internal space found in plant cells used for waste storage.
