Animal Cell

Animal Cell organelles practice

Nucleus Control center of the cell (contains the DNA)
Organism Any living thing
Ribosomes Contain RNA and makes proteins based on instructions from the nucleus
Cell Membrane Found in both plant and animal cells; The skin of the cell. controls what enters and exits the cell
Chromosomes Directs growth and reproduction; found in the nucleus
Cell Basic unit of structure and function in living things
Cytoplasm Thick, jellylike material inside a cell, The functions for cell expansion, growth and replication are carried out in the cytoplasm of the cell.
Nuclear Membrane Double membrane that surrounds the nucleus (protects the nucleus)
Vacuoles Storage tanks for food, water, and waste materials
Organ Groups of similar tissues working together
Mitochondria Make and store energy; known as the powerhouse of the cell
Lysosome Performs digestive functions of the cell; known as the cleanup crew, breaks down food and old cell parts
Organ System Groups of organs working together
Endoplasmic Reticulum Transports materials in the cell; the highway of the cell.
Protein synthesis Food making process used by animal cells.
Tissue Group of similar cells working together
Nucleolus Produces ribosomes; known as the little nucleus
Organelles Structures that make up a cell
Cytoskeleton "scaffolding" or "skeleton" contained within the cytoplasm, structure that maintains cell shape, often protects the cell, enables cellular motion, and plays important roles in both intracellular transport (the movement of organelles) and cellular division
vesicle does the same thing as the ER just in a smaller scale, transports nutrients and such
