controls what goes into and out of the cell.
Also called the gate keeper.
Endoplasmic Reticulum( E.R)
The "passageways ( highways)" in the cell,
carry proteins and other materials from one part of the cell to another
Ribosomes
Factories to produce proteins
small structures on E.R and in the cytoplasm
Golgi Bodies
flattened sacs and tubes
receive proteins and other newly formed material
distribute them to other parts of the cell
Chloroplasts
found in plant cells mostly, some plant like organisms have them too
capture sunlight to make food for the plants
vacuoles
