most mature plants cells have one _______. It is a large sac that stores food, water, waste, and other materials within the cytoplasm.
the nucleus is surrounded by a membrane called the _____________. It protects the nucleus and materials pass in and out of the nucleus through pores in this.
receive materials from the ER and send them to other parts of the cell. Release materials outside the cell
small organelles that contain chemicals that break down food particles and worn out cell parts
large organic molecules made of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and in some cases sulfur
a simple organic compound containing both a carboxyl and an amino acid group
a type of protein that speeds up chemical reaction in a living thing
long organic molecules made of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, and phosophorus
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)
genetic material that carries info about an organism is passed down from parent to offspring
small structures inside of a cell that carry out specific functions within a cell
composed of many cells
the basic units of structure and function in living things. form the parts of an organism and carry out all of an organisms processes or functions
RNA (ribonucleic acid)
plays an important role in protein reproduction. can be found in the cytoplasm and nucleus
a spot on the nucleus where ribosomes are made
any substance that can't be broken down to simpler substances
