Chromatin, Nucleus, Nucleolus, Nuclear Membrane
Houses Nucleic Acids sometimes in a compact/dense formation with histone proteins, contains the location of ribosome synthesis. Closed off to the rest of the cell by a semi-permeable, membrane with specialized pores.
takes sugar (-ose) and converts in into ENERGY in the form of ATP. A process known as cellular respiration.
Vesicles, Vacuoles, Lysosomes, large central vacuole
membrane enclosed storage sacs. They are basically the same thing: one being a stationary form and other mobile. Plants have a specialized version essential for maintaining water balance. Some vesicles contain digestive enzymes that break down and recycle waste and foreign invaders.
they are made in the nucleolus. Their purpose is to read genetic blue prints (nucleic acids) and put together amino acid chains (polypeptides) based on the genetic information. Thus creating proteins.
is a group of membranes and organelles in eukaryotic cells that works together to modify, package, and transport lipids and proteins. members: Nucleus, Rough & Smooth ER, Golgi, Ribosomes, Vesicles.
"Quality control", Modifies and Processes proteins made by the cell.
Cytoskeleton/Cytoplasm, Cilia and Flagella
structural support, cell movement, cell sensory & motility
cell wall & cell membrane
Gives support and protection to cell; made of cellulose or phospholipid bilayer
Where photosynthesis occurs; in plant cells only. Gives plants their green color.
