SBS cells

cell parts and functions

Cell membrane protective outercovering of all cells that is made up of a double layer of fatlike molecules and regulates the interaction between the cell and the environment
Cytoplasm constantly moving gel-like mixture inside the cell membrane that contains hereditary material and is the location of most of a cell's process
Cell wall tough, rigid outercoverings that protect the cell and give it shape (plants, fungi,algae, most bacteria)
Organelle structure in the cytoplasm that can act as a storage site, process, energy, move materials,or manufacture substances.
Nucleus organelle that controls all the activities of a cell and contains hereditary material made of protein and DNA
Chloroplast green, chlorophyll-containing, plant cell organelle that converts sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water into sugar
Mitochondrion cell organelle that breaks down lipids and carbohydrates and releases energy
Ribosome small structure in which cells make their own proteins
Endoplasmic reticulum organelle that moves materials around the cell, and is made up of folded membranes, can be rough (ribosomes attached) or smooth (no ribosomes attached)
Golgi bodies organelles that package cellular material and transports them within the cell or out of the cell
tissue group of similar cells that work together to do one job.
Organ structure made up of different tissues (heart)that work together
Prokaryotic cell cells without membrane bound ostructures
Eukaryotic cell cell with membrane bound structures
lysosome organelle that contains digestive chemicals that help break down food molecules, wastes and worn out cell parts
centriole a group of fused microtubules that are part of the cytoskeleton
nucleolus produces ribosomes which leave the nucleus and attach to the endoplasmic reticulum (important for protein synthesis)
cytoskeleton helps maintain cell shape. also involved in the internal movement of cell organelles and cell locomotion.
