LD Cell Organelles

Organelles in Plant and Animal Cells

eukaryote organism whose cell contains a nucleus
prokaryote unicellular organism whose cell does not contain a nucleus
cell wall rigid layer that surrounds the cells of plants and some other organisms
cell membrane surrounds all cells and controls which substances can pass into or out of the cell
nucleus control center of cell; contains genetic material
chromatin strands of material in the nucleus that contains information for directing cell functions
nucleolus small structure in nucleus where ribosomes are made
nuclear envelope surrounds the nucleus; materials pass into and out of pores in the envelope
cytoplasm thick, clear, gel-like substance that fills the cell
mitochondria powerhouse of the cell - converts energy stored in food to energy the cell can use
endoplasmic reticulum network of membranes that help produce substances; some contain ribosomes
ribosomes found on ER and floating in cytoplasm - make proteins
Golgi apparatus (bodies) looks like flattened sacs and tubes - packages materials and distributes them to other parts of the cell - UPS
vacuoles larger in plants cells than animal cells - stores water, food and other materials- cell's storage compartment
lysosomes breaks down old cell parts and large food particles into smaller ones - cell's recycling center
chloroplast green structure in plant cells that captures sunlight and changes it into a form of energy that can make food
