10 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back

Ribosomes

organelle in cytoplasm that is the site of protein synthesis


Protein Synthesis:


-growth


-repair


-maintenance

Nucleus

organelle that contains DNA, the genetic


material

Vacuoles

stores nutrients, contractile, and metabolic waste

Centrioles

paired structures in animal cells that are important for cell division

Chloroplasts

organelle only in plants tat is the site of


photosynthesis

Mitochondria

where cellular respiration takes place: aerobic creates ATP


produce power for cell

Golgi

stack of membranes that receive, modify and transport products of endoplasmic reticulum


(fedex of the cell)

Cytoskeleton

network of fine protein fibers that support cells that contain a nucleus

Endoplasmic Reticulum

network of membranes tubes that branch from the nuclear envelope and circulate materials throughout the cells

Cell Cycle

Prophase:


-nuclear membrane disintegrates


-Nucleolus disentegrates


-No protein synthesis


Metaphase:


-chromosomes migrate to the equator


-attach to the spindle


Anaphase:


-chromosomes segregate to each pole


Telephase:


-nucleolus reappears


-protein synthesis


Cytokinesis (division of organelles)
