BC: The End
FC: What's inside cells? What are their functions? | Cell Organelles
1: Nucleus | The nucleus contains DNA, and with it, the coded instructions for making proteins and other important molecules. It is found in eukaryotic cells, plant and animal.
2: Vacuoles | Vacuoles store materials like water, salts, proteins, and carbohydrates. Like the nucleus they are found in eukaryotic cells, plant and animal.
3: Lysosomes | These break down and recycle molecules into smaller molecules that can be used by the rest of the cells. They are found in eukaryotic cells, both plant and animal.
4: Cytoskeleton | This helps the cell maintain it's shape and movement. Found in eukaryotic cells, both animal and plant.
5: Centrioles | Located near the nucleus, they help organize cell division. Found in eukaryotic cells, only animal though.
6: Ribosomes | Ribosomes are small particles of RNA and protein found throughout the cytoplasm in all cells. Found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, plant and animal.
7: Endoplasmic Reticulum | These assemble proteins and lipids. Found in eukaryotic cells, both plant and animal.
8: Golgi Apparatus | This modifies, sorts, and packages proteins and other materials from the endoplasmic reticulum. In eukaryotic cells, plants and animals.
9: Chloroplasts | These capture the energy from sunlight and converts it into food that contains chemical energy. Found in eukaryotic cells, but only plant.
10: Mitochondria | Mitochondria converts chemical energy, stored in food, into compounds that are more convenient for the cell's use. Found in Eukaryotic cells, both plant and animal.
11: Cell Wall | The cell wall shapes, supports, and protects the cell. It is found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, but only in plant cells for eukaryotic.
12: Like the cell wall, it protects and supports the cell. Also, it regulates materials entering and leaving the cell. Found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, both plant and animal. | Cell Membrane
