1 of 11
Cell Membrane
the function of the cell membrane is to protect the cell from its surroundings.
2 of 11
Cytoplasm
cytoplasm contains all organelles and cell parts.
3 of 11
Ribosome
are a cell structure that makes protein. protein is needed for many cell functions such as repairing damage or directing chemical processes.
