Nucleus
what organelle is made mostly of phospholipids and is the brain of the cell and holds all the DNA
Lysosomes
what organelle digests worn out parts of the cell so the cell can replace its damaged parts and is made mostly of phospholipids
Endoplasmic Reticulum
what organelle makes proteins and lipids and is made up of phospholipids
Golgi Body
what organelle packages and ships products from the ER and sends waste products out of the cell and is made up of phospholipids
Chloroplast
what organelle captures energy in sunlight to make sugars from simple chemicals (only in plant cells)
Cytoskeleton
what organelle holds the cell together and gives it a shape. Without this organelle the cell would collapse and float freely. It is made of proteins
Ribosomes
what organelle builds proteins and is made of RNA
Vacuole
what organelle stores important materials and is made of phospholipids
Cell Wall
what organelle provides support and protection for the other organelles inside and is made of Carbohydrates
Cytoplasm
what part of the cell is a watery liquid inside that cell that most of the cells mass coms from and is where the cell gets materials for chemical reactions and reproduction
