Cell organelles

Nucleus
Contains DNA which codes for protein synthesis
1 of 18
Nucleolus
Synthesises rNA for ribosome production
2 of 18
Nuclear Pore
Alows the transport of mRNA
3 of 18
nuclear envelope
Separates the DNA from the cytoplasm
4 of 18
Cell membrane
Controls what enters and leaves the cells
5 of 18
Cytoplasm
Where chemical reactions occue
6 of 18
Mitochondria
To produce ATP in aerobic respiration
7 of 18
RER
Transports proteins made in its ribosome surface
8 of 18
SER
The synthesis and transport of lipids
9 of 18
Golgi body

10 of 18
Centrioles
Are used in spindle formation in cell division
11 of 18
Ribosomes
Protein synthesis, are the site of translation where mRNA is used to assemble the polypeptide chain
12 of 18
Lysosomes
Contains and isolates digestive enzymes
13 of 18
Vesicles
In animal: act as a contractile vacuole to maintain osmotic pressure. In plants: storage of ions and to maintain osmotic pressure
14 of 18
Large permanent vacuole
contains cell sap and maintains turgor
