cell wall Extra layer of protection around a plant's cell
Made of cellulose, which are long strings of glucose molecules cell wall
Cell wall function strength and support or skeletal framework for the plant cell
softwoods are Trees that have thin cell walls and grow quickly
hardwoods are Trees that have thick cell walls and grow slowly
cell organelle that functions like the brain is the nucleus
Some nuclei have a membrane known as nuclear membrane or nuclear envelope
Eukaryotes organisms that do have a nuclear membrane or envelope (Eu=do)
Prokaryotes organisms that have no nuclear membrane or envelope (Pro=No)
prokaryotic organism example bacteria
Chromosomes (colored bodies) The structures within the nucleus of a cell which hold the instructions for the cell
Chromo colored
-somes bodies

Chromosomes consist of smaller subunits or "recipes" known as genes
Genes code an organism's features, traits, or characteristics
Mitochondrion function the cell's power plant
What fuels the Mitochondrion glucose
C6H12O6 chemical formula for glucose
Mitochondrion are shaped like beans
Cristae Inner membrane of the mitochondrion
Respiration the process whereby glucose is converted into energy in the form of ATP in the mitochondrion
ATP is the abbreviation for adenosine triphosphate
In the presence of oxygen, one glucose molecule will yield 38 ATPs
With no oxygen present, one glucose molecule can only yield 2 ATPs
aerobic respiration respiration in the presence of oxygen
anaerobic respiration respiration not in the presence of oxygen
The two main uses for ATPs are to allow for movement and heat production
