Chloroplast
Absorbs light energy to make food
1 of 15
Vacuole
Filled with cell sap and keeps cell plump
2 of 15
Cell Wall
Made of cellulose and gives the cell structure
3 of 15
Cell Membrane
Controls passage of substances in and out of cell
4 of 15
Nucleus
Controls activities of cell and contains DNA
5 of 15
Cytoplasm
Where most chemical reactions occur
6 of 15
Mitochondria
Main site of respiration (where energy is made by respiration)
7 of 15
Ribosomes
Main site of protein-synthesis (where protein is made)
8 of 15
Nerve Cell
Elongated cell - axis covered in fact to prevent harm to body from electrical impulses, branches to connect to other nerve cells
9 of 15
Sperm Cell / Egg Cell
Long tails to swim to egg, scissor enzymes to get into egg, carries father's DNA / Contains yolk - food source for embryo, carries mother's DNA
10 of 15
Red Blood Cell
Large surface area - more oxygen, haemaglobin to pick up oxygen, no nucleus so more space for oxygen
11 of 15
Ciliated Cell
Tiny hairs - Cilia, hairs sweep mucus along all air passages down lungs (smoking kills the hairs, no protection from dust/mucus)
12 of 15
Palisade Cell
Top of leaf, tall - large surface area to catch sunlight, carries out photosynthesis to make plant food
13 of 15
Root Hair Cell
Large surface area to absorb water/moisture, thin cell wall to allow water to pass through easily, absorbs minerals and water from soil
14 of 15
White Blood Cell
Found in blood, attracted to diseases and bacteria that enters the body, eat/fight diseases
