Plant & animal cells

Parts & jobs of plant & animal cells

Cell wall 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
Cell membrane A barrier that separates the cell wall in a plant, but a cell membrane forms the outside boundary that separates the cell from its enviroment in an animal. A cell membrane controls what substances comes into and out of a cell
Cell nucleus The cell necleus acts as the brain of the cell, directing all of the cells activities.
Cytoplasm A region betweenthe cell membrane and the nucleus. The cytoplasm is like a thick gel-like fluid.
Function of the mitochondria To convert energy in food molecules to energy the cell can use to carry out its functions.
Function of the endoplasmic reticulum To carry proteins and other materials through its passageways from one part of the cell to another.
Ribosomes The ribosomes are found in the endoplasmic reticulum, and some other ribosomes float in the cytoplasm. The function of the ribosomes is to produce proteins.
Function of the Golgi body To recieve proteins and other materials from the endoplasmic reticulum, and to distribute them to other parts of the cell.
Chloroplasts The chloroplasts is found floating in the cytoplasm, and only the cells of plants and other organisms have chloroplasts. The chloroplasts captures energy from sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell.
Vacuoles Vacuoles are found floating in the cytoplasm, and they are found both in the plant and some animal cells. The vacuoles is the storage areas of cells.
Lysosomes Lysosomes are small, round structures. The lysosomes contain chemicals that break down certain materials in the cell.
