vacuoles storage of food and water Hint: VACUole - VACUum stores dirt
mitochondria "powerhouse" of the cell; site of cellular respiration; makes ATP - primary energy molecule of all cells
ribosomes synthesize (makes) proteins; smallest organelle with important job; makes proteins by assembling amino acids Hint: some ribs have proteins
nucleoulus produces ribosome components
nucleus controls most cell processes and contains hereditary info of DNA; contains nucleolus; surrounded by double membrane called nuclear envelope
cytoplastm clear, watery gelatinous material that contains cell parts
cell membrane a thin membrane that surrounds all cells; separates cell from environment; regulates what enters/leaves cell (selectively permeable - allows passage of certain molecules only); maintains homeostatis
