Cells Terminology

HideShow resource information
Nucleus
It contains DNA that controls what the cell does. It is found in an Animal Cell or Plant Cell.
1 of 11
Cytoplasm
It is a gel-like substance where most of the chemical reactions happen. It is found in an Animal Cell or Plant Cell.
2 of 11
Cell Membrane
It holds the cell together and controls what goes in and out. It is found in an Animal Cell or Plant Cell.
3 of 11
Mitochondria
These are where most of the reactions for Respiration take place. Respiration releases energy that the cell needs to work. These are found in an Animal Cell or Plant Cell.
4 of 11
Cell Wall
This is made of cellulose. It gives support for the cell. It is found in a Plant Cell and Bacterial Cell..
5 of 11
Vacuole
This contains cell sap. Cell sap is a weak solution of sugar and salts. It is found in a Plant Cell.
6 of 11
Chloroplasts
This is where photosynthesis occurs. They contain a green substance called chlorophyll. It is found in a Plant Cell.
7 of 11
Chromosomal DNA
It is one long circular chromosome. It controls the cell's activities and replication. It floats free in the cytoplasm - not in a nucleus. It is found in a Bacterial Cell.
8 of 11
Plasmids
These are small loops of extra DNA that aren't part of the chromosome. Plasmids contain genes for things like drug resistance. They can be passed between bacteria. It is found in a Bacterial Cell.
9 of 11
The Flagellum - (Plural = Flagella)
It is a long, hair-like structure that rotates to make the baterium move. It is found in a Bacterial Cell.
10 of 11
Ribosomes
These are the protein builders (protein synthesizers) of the cell.
