Animal organelles

Plasma Membrane
Selectively permeable. Transports material in and out the of cell. Separates cell content from outside environment.
1 of 12
Cytoplasm
Keeps cells shape. Stores chemicals needed by the cell for metasolic reactions.
2 of 12
Nucleus
Controls/ regulates cellular activity. House genetic material called chromatin, DNA and protein, from which comes instructions for making proteins.
3 of 12
Nucleolus
Makes RNA and ribosomes
4 of 12
Rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER)
Protein synthesis takes place on ribosomes and the newly synthesised proteins are transported to the Golgi apparatus.
5 of 12
Smooth endoplasmic reticulum (ER)
Responsible for synthesis and transport of lipids and carbohydrates.
6 of 12
Golgi apparatus
Newly made protein from rough ER. Modifies and packages the protein into vesicles to be transported to where needed.
7 of 12
Vesicles
Transport vesicles are used to transport materials inside the cell. Secretory vesicles transport proteins that are to be released from the cell, to the surface membrane.
8 of 12
Lysosomes
Break down waste material including old organelles.
9 of 12
Ribosomes
Protein synthesis.
10 of 12
Mitochondria
Site of final stages of cellular respiration.
11 of 12
Centrioles
Form spindle fibres during cell division.
