Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
This network of passageways carries materials from part of the cell to another. Ribosomes are not attached.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
This network of passageways carries materials from part of the cell to another. Ribosomes are attached.
Plasmodesmata
Cell-wall channels that allow connections between plant cells.
Golgi Body
This receives materials through the endoplasmic reticulum and sends them to other parts of the cell.
Ribosomes
These structures make proteins. They can be attached to the outer surfaces of the endoplasmic reticulum, or they may float free in the cytoplasm.
Chloroplast
These organelles capture energy from sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell.
Nucleus
All plant cells contain one of these. It directs all of the cell’s activities, like reproduction.
Cell Wall
This is a stiff wall surrounding the cell membrane, giving the cell a boxlike shape. This is made of cellulose.
Cell Membrane
This area protects the cell and regulates what substances enter and leave the it.
Cytoplasm
This the area between the cell membrane and the nucleus. It contains a gel-like fluid in which many different organelles are found.
Centrosome
A small region near the nucleus in the cell cytoplasm, containing the centrioles.
Mitochondria
Most of the cell’s energy is produced within these rod-shaped organelles.
Vacuole
Most mature plant cells have one of these. This sac within the cytoplasm stores water, food, waste products, and other materials.
Microtubules
A hollow cylindrical tube used for the transport of materials inside cells and keeping the cell’s shape.
Peroxisome
A cell organelle containing enzymes, such as catalase and oxidase, that catalyze the production and breakdown of hydrogen peroxide.
