The Functions of Intracellular Organelles

HideShow resource information
What is the size and function of the MITOCHONDRION?
It is 1 micrometer; allows energy to be produced by aerobic respiration in the matrix
1 of 10
What is the size and function of a RIBOSOME?
It is 0.025 micrometers; creates all proteins that the cell needs
2 of 10
What is the size and function of the GOLGI APPARATUS?
It is 2.5 micrometers; modifies proteins and packs them into sensory vesicles
3 of 10
What is the size and function of a CHLOROPLAST?
It is 5 micrometers; contains chlorophyll in thylakoid membranes for photosynthesis
4 of 10
What is the size and function of a LYSOSOME?
It is 0.5 micrometers; contains digestive enzymes to get rid of old or worn out cells
5 of 10
What is the size and function of the NUCLEUS?
It is 3-5 micrometers; contains DNA and has genetic information needed to make proteins
6 of 10
What is the size and function of a CENTRIOLE?
It is 5 micrometers; helps mitosis and meiosis
7 of 10
What is the size and function of the NUCLEOLUS?
It is 1-2 micrometers; makes ribosomes from proteins due to DNA
8 of 10
What is the size and function of the ROUGH ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM
It is 0.1 micrometers; transports proteins, comparts the cell so reactions can occur without interference
9 of 10
What is the size and function of the SMOOTH ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM?
It is 0.15 (tubles) micrometers; synthesizes and moves lipids
