Mrs. Kamienski Cells

Kamienski Animal Cell Structure and Function

cell membrane maintains homeostasis, controls movement in and out of the cell
cytoplasm watery substance which contains organelles, chem rxns take place here
Nucleus contol center of cells metabolism and reproduction
ribosome site of protein production found alone in cytoplasm or on ER
Endoplasmic Reticulum canals which serve as transport of materials for the cell, has large surface area for biochem rxn's
Mitochondria powerhouse of the cell, here biochemical rxn's occur and energy is released
Golgi Apparatus Processing, packaging and storage center for the cell
Vacuoles can be storage center, others can pump excess H20 from the cell
Centrioles made of microtubules, found near nucleus, involved in cell division
Lysosomes little sacs which contain digestive enzymes
Nucleolus found inside the nucleus, site of ribosome production
Microtubules & filaments makes up the cytoskeleton, gives shape and protection, and helps cell move
Cilia or microvilli made of microtubules, move like waves, move debris and other materials
Flagella long and whip like in shape, helps cell move around
Nuclear Membrane porous membrane which controls what comes in or out of the nucleus
