HideShow resource information

Eukaryotic Cell Contents;

Animal:plasma membrane, smooth ER, rough ER, golgi apparatus, ribosomes, mitochondria, nucleus, nucleolus, lysosomes, cytoplasm and a nuclear envelope.

Plant: contains all of the above as well as a cell wall, a vacuole and chloroplasts.

Functions:

Plasma Membrane- made out of lipids and proteins and it regulates movement of substances in and out of cells.

Rough ER- covered in ribosomes and it folds and processes proteins.

Smooth ER- Synthesises and processes lipids.
