Cell Organelles

An introduction to cell organelles

Nuclear envelope A double membrane surrounding the nucleus
Nuclear pore A gateway to allow materials to move between the cytoplasm and the nucleus
Nucleolus Region where ribosomes are assembled
Rough ER Series of flattened membrane stacks studded with ribosomes where secretory proteins are made
Smooth ER Network of membranes where lipid synthesis and detoxification reactions occur
Golgi Series of membrane sacks where proteins are modified and sorted to their correct destinations
Mitochondria Double membrane structures that produce the ATP used by the cell as an energy source
Microvilli Highly folded region of the cell surface membrane to allow easier faster movement of materials into and out of the cell
Centrioles Organise the microtubules within the cell and involved in cell division
Microtubules Protein scaffold within the cell involved in directing and organising materials within the cytoplasm
Ribosomes produce proteins within the cell. Maybe free within the cytoplasm or located on the rough ER
Cell surface membrane Regulates the movement of materials into and out of the cell
