Cell Wall Thicker outer layer of a plant cell, which is before the cell membrane Strength,support, shape of cell
Cytoskeleton Cellular skeleton that crisscrosses the cytoplasm support, shape, movement
Endocytosis forms vacuole in cytoplasm
Rough ER Studded with ribosomes prepares hormones and enzymes for transport to golgi
Chloroplast Organelle where photosynthesis takes place in plants and algae where food is made
DNA Polymer of nucleotides used by cells to store information
Nucleus Manages the processes in the cell
Centrioles Used for animal cells to reproduce aid in cell division
Cytoplasm Organelle associated with providing the cell with a structure and means transport within the cell

Active tranport requires energy
Passive thransport requires no energy
