plant/Animal Cells

Parts & Functions of Cells

Cell Wall In a cell, a stiff wall surrounds the membrane, giving the cell a rigid boxlike shape.
Chloroplasts These organelles capture energy from sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell.
Vacuole Most mature plant cells have one large vacuole. This sac within the cytoplasm stores water, food, waste products, and other materials.
Cell Membrane The cell membrane protects the cell and regulates what substances enter and leave the cell.
Endoplasmic Reticulum This network of passageways carries materials from one part of the cell to another
Nucleus The nucleaus directs all of the cells activities, including reproduction.
Cytoplasm The Cytoplasm includes a gel like fluid in wich many different oranelles are found.
Mitochondria Most of the cells energy is produced within these rod shped organelles.
Ribosomes These small structures funtion as factories to produce proteins. Ribosomes may be attached to the endoplasmic reticulum, or they may float in the cytoplasm.
Golgi Body The golgi body recieves materials from the endoplasmic reticulum and send them to other parts of the cell. they also realese materials outside the cell.
Cell Membrane Since an animal cell does not have a cell wall, the cell membrane forms a barrier between the cytoplasm and the enviroment outside the cell.
Vacuole (AMIMAL!!!) Some animal cells have vacuoles that store food, water, waste, and other materials.
Lysosomes These small organelles contain chemicals that break down food particels and worn-out cell parts.
