HideShow resource information
Plasma Membrane
Regulates movement of substances into and out of the cells. Also contains receptors.
1 of 14
Cell Wall
Support plant cells
2 of 14
Nucleus
Chromatin is made from proteins and DNA. DNA controls cell activity Nucleolus makes ribosomes.
3 of 14
Lysosomes
Contains digestive enzyme. Digest invading cells or break down worn out cells.
4 of 14
Ribosomes
Site where proteins are made
5 of 14
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
Folds and processes proteins that have been made by ribosomes
6 of 14
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
Synthesises and processes lipids
7 of 14
Vesicle
Transport substances in and out of the cell. Formed golgi apparatus or ribosomes, some are formed at cell surface.
8 of 14
Golgi Apparatus
Proceeses and packages lipids and proteins. Also makes lysosomes
9 of 14
Mitochondrion
Site of aerobic respiration where ATP is produced. Very active and require a lot of energy.
10 of 14
Chloroplast
Site of photosynthesis
11 of 14
Centriole
Involved with the separation of chromosomes
12 of 14
Cillia
Microtubules all of the cillia to move and waft substances out of the body up to the throat.
13 of 14
Flagellum
Microtubules contract to make the flagellum move. Flagellum to propel cells forward to help them swim.
