Cell Voc

Cell Membrane protective layer that covers a cell's surface and lets in protein and nutrients
Organelles 1. small body in a cell's cytoplasm 2. The nucleus, the mitochondrion, the chloroplast, the Golgi apparatus, the lysosome, and the endoplasmic reticulum are all examples of organelles.
Cytoplasm 1. all of the organelles of the cell 2. Holds the cell together
Nucleus 1. In the center and hold the cell together 2. In a eukaryotic cell
Prokaryotic cell 1. no nucleus 2. DNA in cytoplasm 3. circular DNA 4. bacteria , yeast
Eukaryotic cell 1. has a nucleus with DNA 2. linear DNA 3. animal cell, plant cell, fungi
Bacteria 1. 1st cells on Earth 2. single cell (unicellular) 3. prokaryotic
Cell 1. The smallest functional and structural unit of all living things 2. (little room in Latin)
Tissue 1. similar cells working together 2. animal- nervous, epithelial, connective, muscle tissue 3. Plant- transport, protective, ground
