Animal cells usually have five basic parts. These parts are...
- Plasma membrane - This is used to keep the cell together and also has control over what can diffuse in and out.
- Cytoplasm - This is where most chemical reactions take place.
- Nucleus - This contains genetic material and it controls the cell, but it is not the cells brain.
- Mitochondria - This is where respiration takes place.
- Ribosomes - Where proteins are produced.
