Packages products and wastes for transport Golgi Apparatus
Transportation system for the cell Endoplasmic reticulum
Mitochondria "Powerhouse of the cell" Uses glucose to produce energy for cell
Production units for assembling proteins Ribosomes
Nucle-us Information center of the cell. DNA is stored and processed here
Mit-o-sis A condition of thread; Simple cell reproduction (cloning)
Chromosome development Prophase
Chromosome alignment on spindle fibers Metaphase
Chromsome separation into chromatids at each pole Anaphase
Completion of cell division into two daughter cells. Telephase
Micr-o-scop-ic Pertaining to a small view; clinically refers to something that requires visualization by microscope
Cyt-o-logy The study of cells
Lys-o-som-al Pertaining to a dissolving/destructive body

Extra-cellul-ar Pertaining to outside of cells
Nucle-ar Pertaining to a nucleus
Chrom-o-some A colored body. A threadlike structure of nucleic acids and protein found in the nucleus of most living cells, carrying genetic information in the form of genes
Nucle-olus A small nucleus. A small dense spherical structure in the nucleus of a cell during interphase

Cellular Membrane Outer most structure that forms an envelope or "skin" around all of the intracellular components. Composed of lipids and proteins.
Smooth ER Complex network of canals and flattened sacs throughout the cytoplasm of a cell. It appears rough microscopically because of the many ribosomes attached to it.
Ribosomes Tiny spherical organelles responsible for the production of things like proteins
DNA deoxyribonucleic acid
