Nucleus
Contains DNA. DNA carries the genetic coding for protein synthesis (i.e making enzymes).
1 of 5
Cytoplasm
Where proteins (e.g enzymes) are made. Some enzyme controlled reactions happen here (e.g aerobic respiration).
2 of 5
Cell Membrane
Holds the cell together. It allows gases and water to pass through, but presents a barrier to other chemicals.
3 of 5
Mitochondria
Contains enzymes needed for aerobic respiration and where it takes place.
4 of 5
Ribosomes
Protein synthesis occurs on the ribosome as the mRNA joins to it.
