Cell Wall
only in plant cells; made of cellulose stiff material. Allows for entrance into the cell/exit out of the cell. Gives protection and support to plant cells.
Cell Membrane
Found in all cells. Gives it shape, allows for entrance and exit in the cell. Also protects from invaders. Regulates the movement of materials into and out of the cell.
Cytoplasm
Jelly-like substance in a cell, allows for movement within the cell.
Nucleus
Control center of the cell, regulates cell activities.
Nuclear Membrane
Similiar to cell membrane gives shape to nucleus allows for entrance/esit into the Nucleus.
Chromosomes
Inside the nucleus responsible for reproduction of a cell.
Nucleolus
Small Nucleus inside the nucleus, not sure what it does but evidence suggest it is responsible for ribosomes production.
Endoplasmic Reticulum
Responsible for transporting "stuff" within the cell, almost like tubes, tunnels.
Ribosomes
Produce proteins, small grainlike in shape.
Mitochondria
Produces Energy for the cell.
Vacuoles
Storage areas in plants primarily WATER STORAGE.
Lyposome
only animal cell part, responsible for recycle waste/broken parts - contains digestive enzymes.
Chloroplasts
Formed only in plants, takes Sun's energy and converts it to sugar. "Energy"
Metabolism
SUM total of chemical activities in a cell (organism)(activities) respiration, digestion, excretion, ingestion, life span (grow), reproduction.
Respiration
Process where energy sources are broken down to release energy, (usually oxygen).
A plant cell has a CELL WALL and CHLOROPLASTS.
