23 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
Cell Membrane
Phospholipid bilayer that regulates cell transport; involved in cell to cell recognition
Cell Wall
plants, fungal, and bacteria have this for support and protection; composed of celluloe in plants
Centriole
Found in animal cells; plays a role in cell division; found in pairs
Chloroplast
site of photosyntheses in the plant and algal cell
Chromatin
hereditary material in the cell
Chromoplast
plastids that produce and store pigments for color
Cytoplasm
jelly-like material surrounding the nucleus of the cell; chemical reactions take place here
Cytoskeleton
network of microtubules and microfilaments used for support and movement of the cell
Golgi Apparatus
a delivery system of folded membranes that sort and transport enzymes and hormones made in one part of the cell and needed in another location in the cell
Lysosome
contains enzymes needed for digesting food, viruses, bacteria, and old cells
Microbody
membrane-bound cytoplasmic particle that are specialized as containers for metabolic activity
Microfilament
these form the cytoskeleton, a three-dimensional network inside a eukaryotic cell
Microtubule
serve as structural components within cells and are involved in many cellular processes including mitosis and cytokinesis
Mitochondria
the site of cellular respiration or energy production; membrane bound
Nuclear Envelope
porous; surrounds nucleus
Nucleolus
site of ribosome synthesis
Nucleus
the control center of the cell; directs the making of proteins and cell division
Plasmodesma
small poers in the cell wall which appear to allow a bridge of cytoplasm from one cell to the next
Plastid
responsible for photosynthesis, storage of products like starch and for the sunthesis of many classes of molecules such as fatty acids
Ribosomes
site of protein synthesis; made of RNA
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
forms a link between the nuclear membrane and the cell; ribosomes are attached to the surface; proteins are synthesized in the ribosomes and enclosed in vessicles and sent to to Golgi
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
it forms a link between the nuclear membrane and the cell; site of carbohydrate and lipid synthesis
Vacuole
site of storage of glucose, water, salts, and toxic substances; larger in plants cells than in animal cells
