consists of small sacs, believed to manufacture carbohydrates and combine them with proteins


organelle with small sacs thought to provide the energy for the cell


sacs containing enzymes that digest molecules and particles for the cell.

endoplasmic reticulum

canals consisting of smooth and rough portions where the ribosomes containing RNA attach.

integumentary system

body system that incudes the skin, hair, nails, sweat, sebaceous glands.

urogenital system

body system that provides for reproduction and urine excretion

nervous system

body system that processes stimuli and enabes the body to act and respond

endocrine system

body system that manufactures hormones

gastrointestinal system
