HideShow resource information
nucleus
Houses all of the cells genetic material in the form of DNA, which contains the instructions for protein synthesis
1 of 13
nucleolus
Makes ribosomes and RNA which pass into the cytoplasm and are used in protein synthesis
2 of 13
nuclear envelope
A double membrane with nuclear pores
3 of 13
rough endoplasmic reticulum
Transports proteins made by the attached ribosomes
4 of 13
smooth endoplasmic reticulum
Involved in the making of lipids
5 of 13
golgi apparatus
Modifies proteins received from the rough endoplasmic reticulum and then packages the into vesicles so they can be transported
6 of 13
ribosomes
Site of protein synthesis
7 of 13
Mitochondria
Where ATP is made
8 of 13
Lysosomes
Contain digestive enzymes that are used to break down material
9 of 13
chloroplasts
Site of photosynthesis in plant cells
10 of 13
Plasma (cell surface) membrane
Controls the entry and exit of substances into and out of the cell
11 of 13
centrioles
Form the spindle which moves chromosomes during cell division
12 of 13
Flagella and cilia
Move by ATP, E.g: wave mucus along trachea or make sperm swim
