- The brain of the cell, contrls all the cell processes
- Contains the DNA used to create protiens needed to peform cell processes.
1 of 16
- Opening in the nucleus embedded with proteins.
- Regulates the passage of substance in and out of the nucleus
2 of 16
- Double membrane between the nucleus and the cytoplasm
3 of 16
Smooth endoplasmic reticulum
- System of internal membranes.
- Helps in the manufacture of carbohydrates and lipids.
4 of 16
Rough endoplasmic reticulum
- System of internal membranes studded with ribosome's.
- Carry out protein synthesis.
5 of 16
- Vesticle fused with plasma membrane.
- Releases materials to be secreted from the cell.
6 of 16
- Vesticle that breaks down macromolecules.
- Digest worn out cell components.
- Kind of "self destruct" function for dying cells.
7 of 16
- Lipid bilayer in which proteins are embedded.
8 of 16
- The site of aerobic respiration for the cell.
- They create ATP, therefore releasing energy to drive cell processes.
9 of 16
- Small complexes of RNA and protein.
- They are the sites of protein synthesis.
10 of 16
- Collects packages.
- Distributes molecules manufactured in the cell.
11 of 16
- Where the cell chemistry takes place. eg. in salivary gland were the saliva is made.
- Contains Organelles which carry out different cell functions
12 of 16
- Only in plant cells.
- Storage for cell material.
- Acts like a "balloon" inside the cell keeping it rigid and supported.
13 of 16
- Protects cell.
- Keeps the cell rigid.
14 of 16
- Holds cell together and supports the cell structure.
- Controls what enters/leaves the cell.
15 of 16
- Vesticle that contains enzymes that carry out particular reactions.
- eg. destroying potentially harmful molecules.
