Cell Parts Science

Cell Parts Chart

little cell structures that have specific functions organelles
cell's security system cell membrane
gel-like substance inside cell cytoplasm
touch structure that surrounds and propects plant cells cell wall
control center of cell nucleus
green organelle chloroplast
cell's energy dam mitochondria
protein factories ribosome
found in eukaryotes organelles
surrounds and protects cell cell membrane
where cell processes (chemical reactions) occur cytoplasm
gives plant cells shape cell wall
contains directions for entire cell nucleus
in plant cells only chloroplast
stores and releases cell's energy mitochondria
make proteins ribosome
controls what enters and exits cell cell membrane
eighty percent water cytoplasm
made of cellulose (fiber) cell wall
DNA found here nucleus
photosinthesis occurs here chloroplast
powerhouse of cell mitochondria
some float freely in cytoplasm, others are attatched to the endoplasmic reticulum ribosome
surrounded by a nuclear membrane nucleus
captures energy from the sun to make glucose (plant food) chloroplast
cell's railroad track endoplasmic reticulum
cell's post office golgi body
manufactures the proteins that make up the ribosomes nucleolus
cell's landfill lysosome
temporarily stores food, water, and waste vacuole
framework for the cell cytoskeleton
a group of cells working together to perform a particulat function tissue
two or more tissues working together to perform a function organ
moves material around in cells endoplasmic retuculum
sorts and packages proteins into vesciles golgi body
found in the nucleus nucleolus
digests food molecules, cell wastes, and worn out cell parts lysosome
rather large in plant cells vacuole
helps maintain and/or change shape of cell cytoskeleton
ER with no ribosomes smooth
ER with ribosomes rough
vesciles deliver substances in the cell and also attatch to the cell membrane to release materials to the outside golgi body
cells require a continuous supply of this energy
a strand of hereditary material surrounded by a protein coat virus
organisms whose cells do not have any organelles prokaryotes
sorts and packages proteins and then sends them to other parts of the cell golgi body
manufactures ribosomes and other proteins nucleolus
building blocks of life cells
organisms whose cells contain membrane bound organelles including a nucleus eukaryotes
organelle that contains digestive enzymes lysosome
stores food, water, and wastes vacuole
these are used to help prevent viral diseases vaccines
the man responsible for discovering the first organisms in pond water leeuwenhoek
proteins that protect cells from viruses interferons
cell that viruses use to make copies of themselves host
cell's framework cytoskeleton
man who discovered the first vaccine jenner
inactive stage of a virus latent
discovered cells in a piece of cork hooke
virus that infects bacteria bacteriophage
microscope made of only one lens single
