Cells - Reimer

Parts of the cell

1. Cell membrane acts as a barrier between the cell and its environment; is on the outside of animal cells and just inside the cell wall on plant and prokaryotic cells
2. Cell wall provides strength and support to the cell membrane and is found on the outside of plant cells and prokaryotic cells
3. Centriole part of the cell’s cytoskeleton in animal cells
4. Chloroplasts make food using the energy of sunlight and contain chlorophyll; where photosynthesis occurs
5. Cytoplasm cellular fluid surrounding a cell’s organelles
6. Cytoskeleton maintains the cell’s shape
7. DNA the hereditary material that controls all the activities in the cell; contains the information to make new cells; and provides the instructions for making proteins
8. Endoplasmic reticulum or ER cell’s delivery system; the ER packages up proteins for release from the cell; rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes on it, while smooth does not
9. Golgi complex cell’s packaging center; modifies and/or packages materials and transports them out of the cell
10. Lysosomes packages of destruction; digest food particles, wastes, and foreign invaders
11. Mitochondria cell’s power plant; make ATP; where cellular respiration occurs
12. Nuclear membrane surrounds the nucleus
13. Nucleolus dark spot inside the nucleus; where ribosomes are made
14. Nucleus control center of the cell; DNA is found in the nucleus; the nucleolus is inside the nucleus
15. Ribosomes cell’s protein factories; amino acids are hooked together to make proteins
16. Vacuoles stores water and other materials; they are large in plant cells and smaller in animal cells
17. Vesicles membrane-covered compartments that pinch off from the ER, Golgi complex, or cell membrane
