Analyze the anatomical structure of ten different organelles in the cell and their respective functions.
Chloroplast:
Its main function is photosynthesis trapping energy from the sun and producing sugar from carbon dioxide. Its structure is made up of a double membrane system. They are known as the outer and inner membranes. The inner membrane surrounds the stroma and grana other words known as stacks of thylakoids (NCBI, 2016).

Endoplasmic reticulum:
Its main function is translation and folding of new proteins across the ER membrane. Its structure is made up of a single membrane system (BSCB, 2016). There are 2 types of endoplasmic reticulum rough endoplasmic and smooth. They appear to be separate however they are sub compartments of the

Its function is to stretch and permits distension of urinary organ by containing urine. It is located lining the ureters, bladder and certain parts of the urethra (Antranik, 2016).

It is located in the skin, which binds the outer layers of skin to the muscles located beneath. It can be found in or near the mucous membranes, blood vessels, organs, and nerves (SIU Med, 2016).
Adipose is a fatty tissue is a form of loose connective tissue that stores energy, insulates and cushions the body. It can be found in forms of a thick layer beneath the skin, around the kidneys, around the heart, yellow marrow of the long bones, and inside of the eye socket (SIU Med, 2016).
Fibrous is a tissue composed of bundles of collagenous white fibers between which are rows of connective tissue cells. It can be found in ligaments, tendons, and membranes. Its function is to provide a mechanically strong bond providing support and protection (SIU Med, 2016).
Bone tissue is a rigid connective tissue, internally supports body structures, very active tissue, and heals faster than cartilage. It can be found: on the cranium, vertebral column, clavicles, acromium (process of the shoulder), the humerus, the radius, ulna, and forearm (SIU Med, 2016).
Cartilage tissue is a dense, flexible tissue similar to bone tissue. It functions a flexible connective tissue. It can be found between joints, ear, rib cage, bronchial tubes, nose, and intervertebral discs (SIU Med,
