The smallest organelle, it makes proteins.
The green organelle that contains chlorophyll. It makes food for the cell. Only in plant cells.
The organelle in which respiration (breaking down food to produce energy) occurs.
Transports proteins throughout the cell, the transportation system.
The organelle inside of the nucleus that makes ribosomes.
Provides support and protection for the plant cell, made of non-living material.
The organelle that contains digestive enzymes, the clean up crew.
The thin, flexible envelope surrounding all cells, doorway of the cell, controls what goes in and out of the cell.
Stores water, wastes and food for the cell, "storage tank", larger in plant cells.
Control center of the cell, contains DNA and the nucleolus.
The diffusion of water through a cell membrane.
The process by which molecules move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration.
Five basic levels of organization:
Cells, tissues, organs, organ systems and organism.
The first to see living cells under a microscope.
A zoologist who concluded that all animals are made of cells.
A botanist who concluded that all plants are made of plant cells.
In 1665 he used a microscope and discovered cells using cork. He named them "cells".
The first to observe cell division under the microscope, "living cells only come from living cells".
All living things are composed of cells, cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things, and living cells are produced from living cells.
A jellylike fluid inside the cell in which the organelles are suspended
Threadlike structures made of DNA molecules that contain the genes.
