  • Organelles
    • Cytoskeleton
      • Gives shape to cells lacking a cell wall
      • Allows cell  movement (White blood cell , Amoeba, contraction of muscle cells)
      • Movement for  organelles within cell  & endocytosis
      • Cell division (movement of chromosomes during mitosis and meiosis)
    • Flagella (Undulipodium)
      • Move sperm cells and gametes of some plants (mosses and ferns)
    • vesicles & vacuoles
      • Carry different substances around cells
    • Plant cell wall
      • It maintains the shape of the cell
        • It provides structural strength to the plant
          • It provides a path way for exchange of materials between two adjacent cells
    • Nucleus
      • ·        Starts process of cell division.
    • Endoplasmic reticulum
      • Smooth
        • synthesises and processes lipids
      • Rough
        • Folds & processes proteins  that have been made at the ribosomes
    • Mitochondria
      • Site of aerobic respiration where ATP is produced
    • Chloroplast
      • Site where photosynthesis takes place
    • lysosomes
      • Contains digestive enzymes  for destryoing worn out parts of a cell
    • Ribosomes
      • Amino acids  assembled to make a protein
    • Centrioles
      • Involved with seperation od chromosomes during cell division
  • vesicles & vacuoles
    • Carry different substances around cells
  • It provides structural strength to the plant
    • It provides a path way for exchange of materials between two adjacent cells
