Robert Hooke discovered cells while looking at cork
cell theory all organisms come from one or more cells, the cell is the basic unit of life, all cells come from pre-existing cells
prokaryotic cells bacteria, circular DNA no nucleus or membrane covered organelles
eukaryotic cells plant and animal cells, has nucleus and membrane covered organelles, linear DNA
multi-cellular composed of many cells, can do many jobs
uni-cellular made of one cell, cannot do many jobs
nucleus control center of the cell
cell membrane regulates what enters and exits the cell, keeps the cell together
mitochondria powerhouse of the cell, produces ATP
golgi complex process and ship proteins and other materials out of the cell
lysosome engulf waste products and act like the cleanup crew
ribosome makes proteins
endoplasmic reticulum makes lipids, breaks down drugs, packages and releases proteins for the cell, roadways of the cell
vacuole stores water
cell wall gives plant cell structure and support
chloroplast traps sunlight and converts it to food, chlorophyll made and stored here
DNA involved in heredity, chromosomes made in the center of the nucleus are made of DNA
cytoplasm jellylike fluid that holds organelles in place
