Wall
a rigid structure that surrounds the cell membrane and provides support to the cell
cytoskeleton
one of the small bodies that are found in the cytoplasm of a cell and that are specialized to perform a specific function
centriole
an organelle that is composed of two short micro tubules at rigth angles to each other and that has an active role in mitosis
chromosomes
one of the structures in the nucleus that are made up of D
