What 2 places in the cell are ribosomes found? in the cytoplasm floating around and on the rough ER
What is chlorophyll? the green chemical, or pigment, that makes leaves green. Exists in the chloroplasts of plant cells
Nucleolus center pit of the cell
What do plant cells have that animal cells do not? cell wall, chloroplast, and larger vacuoles
How does a cell's shape match its function Lots of cells are shaped for their job. Red blood cells look like fun innertubes, nerve cells have long tendrils coming off them, plant cells are rigid
