Plants & Animal Cell

Parts & jobs of Plant & Animal Cells

Cell Wall The Cell Wall is a rigid layer of non living material that surrounds the cells of plants and some other organisms. The cell wall helps protect and support the cell. Animal cells do not have Cell walls
Cell Membrane The Cell Membrane prevents harmful materials from entering the cell. The Cell Membrane controls what substances come into and out of a cell.
Nucleus The Cell Nucleus is the brain of the cell. You can think of the cell Nucleus as the cells control center directing all of the cells activities.
Cytoplasm The Cytoplasm is the region between the Cell Membrane and Nucleus. It is a clear thick gel-like fluid.
Mitochondria The Mitochondria are known as the "powerhouse" of the cell because they convert energy in food molecules to energy the cell wall can use to carry out its functions
Endoplasmic Reticulum The Endoplasmic Reticulum's passageways carry proteins and other materials from one part of the cell to another.
Ribosomes Ribosomes are found attached to some surfaces of the Endoplasmic Reticulum. They have small grain- like bodies. Ribosomes function as factories to produce proteins
Golgi Body Golgi Bodies receive protiens and other newly formed materials from the Endoplasmic Reticulum, package them and distrubute them to other parts of the cell.
Chloroplasts Chloroplasts can be found in the cytoplasm. Chloroplasts capture energy from sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell. Only plant like cells have it. It also makes leaves green
Vacuoles Most plants have one vacuole. Some animal cells do not have them, others do. Vacuoles store food and other materials needed by the cell.
Lysosomes Lysosomes are small, round structures containing chemicals that break down certain materials in the cell.
