Cell Science

parts of a cell, and definitions.

Cell Membrane Organelle that surrounds a cell and allows materials to move in and out of it.
Nucleus Organelle that stores information via DNA. Acts as a sort of control center of a cell.
Nuclear Envelope Like Cell Membrane, except for it surrounds nucleus
Nuclear pore Tunnel through Nuclear Envelope to allow bigger things to go in and out of the Nucleus.
Nucleolus Organelle that stores information for making RNA.
Chromatin Uncoiled DNA, coils to make chromosomes when cell reproduces.
Cytoplasm Jelly-like colloid inside of cell, it gives the cell its shape.
Mitochondrion Organelle that is the powerhouse of cell, generates energy the cell uses.
Golgi Complex Packaging and Shipping of cell, distributes materials the cell needs.
Centriole Organelle that is only used when cell divides
Microtubule Cellular Highway that makes distribution of materials easier.
Microfilament Small and threadlike- is basically a cytoskeleton, helping the cell keep its shape.
Ribosome Makes proteins for cell to use.
Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) Two Types- Rough ER- studded with ribosomes, protein factory Smooth ER- has no ribosomes, makes lipids (fats)
Vacuole Storage unit of cell, stores unused materials for later.
Lysosome Eliminates waste and damaged organelles. Like a janitor.
Selectively Permeable Can be permeated by certain materials, but not others.
