Ruff. Organelles

Organelle Study Stack

Cells The basic unit of structure and function in all living organisms
Organelles Known as "little organs." They are small structures inside the cell that carry out specific functions
Nucleus Holds the cell's DNA. It is the information center of the cell and controls all of the cell's activities.
Mitochondria Provides energy for the cell by releasing energy that was stored in food. "Powerhouse"
Nucleolus Found inside of the nucleus and is responsible for making ribosomes
Ribosomes The site where proteins are made
Golgi Body (Golgi Apparatus) The cell's "post office". It receives proteins and packages them and distributes them to other parts of the cell
Cell Membrane The "gatekeeper" of the cell. It regulates what can enter and leave the cell. It also provides protection and support
Lysosome Small structures that contain digestive enzymes that break down materials and waste in the cell. Known as the recycling center of the cell.
Vacuole Storage center of the cell. Mostly stores water and carbohydrates. Very large in plant cells.
Cytoplasm Gel-like substance that holds all of the organelles. it is found between the nucleus and the cell membrane.
Cell Wall Only found in plant cells. It is a thick, rigid structure found surrounding the outside of the plant cell. It provides protection and support. It gives the plant cell it's rectangular shape
Chloroplasts Green Structure that captures energy from the sun during photosynthesis to make food for the cell. Only found in plant cells
Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) Transports and assembles proteins in the cell. The "highway"
