Cell Organelles

Organelles Function

Nucleus Contains genetic material; considered the control center of the cell.
Lysosome Involved in cleanup in the cell; digests and recycles materials in the cell. It is also involved in waste removal.
Mitochondria Converts chemical energy into energy that is useable by the cell.
Golgi Apparatus, Golgi, or Golgi Body Stores, modifies and packages proteins; gets proteins ready for specific functions and prepares them for transport.
Chloroplasts Converts carbon dioxide, water, and energy from sunlight to produce glucose (sugar) and oxygen. Found in plant cells and some algae.
Endoplasmic Reticulum Makes and transports lipids and proteins, removes toxins, and is a roadway for transportation in the cell. Ribosomes are found on some of this organelle.
Cell Wall Rigid outermost cell layer found in plants and certain algae, bacteria, and fungi. This cell part is not found in animal cells. It is involved in support and protection of the cell.
Cell Membrane Contains the organelles and cytoplasm of a cell; cell part is that it is not solid so it permits nutrients and water to pass into and waste to pass out of the cell.
Ribosomes An organelle that is the site where protein is built in the cell. DNA, genetic code, is used to build proteins at this organelle.
Vacuole Organelle involved in storage of nutrients, water, and cellular waste.
Cytoplasm Contains the organelles, organelles are suspended in this cell part. Allows transportation in the cell.
