Book of Cells - Page Text Content

FC: Book of Cells By; ashley purnell and liz skok

1: Cilia/Flagella | Function; move liquid past the surface of the cell Link; http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/C/Cilia.html Found in animal and plant cells Analogy; a bus because it transports people to other places like the cilia/flagella transports liquid

2: Golgi Apparatus | Function; packaging macromolecules for transport elsewhere in the cell. Link; http://cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm Found by several smallvesicles containing the packaged macromolecules Analogy; mailroom because it gives out mail to places in a city/state like golgis give out macromolecules to other parts of the cell

3: Mitochondria | Function; provides the energy of a cell Link; http://cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm Found in the cytoplasm Analogy; power plant because it provides power for a city

4: Lysosomes | Function; they contain hydrolytic enzymes necessary for intracelluar digestion and in white blood cells that eat bacteria, lysosomes kill and digest the bateria Link; http://cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm Found in a cytoplasm of a cell Analogy; a stomach because stomachs digest and break down food

5: Vacuoles | Function; interacts in intracelluar digestion and the release of celluar waste products Link; http://cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm Located near the edge of the cell membrane Analogy; backpacks

6: Centrioles | Function; to generate the cytoskeleton(components distributed throughout the cell) Link; http://www.cod.edu/people/faculty/fancher/cellstructure.htm Found by the nucleus Analogy; workers for a company

7: Chloroplasts | Function; they contain the plant cell's chlorophyll, which is respondsible for its green color Link; http://cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm Found by the outer edge of the vacuole Analogy; a solar panel because it takes in the sun's energy just like chloroplasts takes in the plant's chlorophyll

8: Cell Membrane | Function; Protects the internal parts of the cell and regulates which substances enter and exit the cell. Link; http://www.teachersdomain.org/asset/tdc02_vid_nucleus/ Found on the outer place of the cell Analogy; Fence because it keeps people from entering or exiting a place

9: Cell Wall | Functions: Gives Cell Membrane protection, along with protecting the cell. Located on the outer part of the cell membrane. http://www.biology4kids.com/files/cell_wall.html | Analogy: The shell of a turtle.

10: Cytoplasm | Functions: Provides an environment for all the parts of the cell, with its solution composed of water, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. Located everywhere in the cell. http://www.teachersdomain.org/asset/tdc02_vid_nucleus/ | Analogy: Glue holding things together.

11: Cytoskeleton | Functions: supports cell and provides shape, and aids movement of materials in and out of the cell. Can be found everywhere in the cell. | http://library.thinkquest.org/12413/structures.html | Composed of microtubules | Analogy: Walls of a house.

12: Nucleus | Functions: Serves as the cell's control center, and is where DNA is located. Analogy: A Human Heart | http://www.nsf.gov/news/overviews/biology/interact02.jsp

13: Nucleolus | http://library.thinkquest.org/12413/structures.html | Functions: Spherical shape, only visible when cell is not dividing. Contains RNA for protein. Analogy: An orange containing vitamin C

14: Ribosomes | Function: builds proteins according to RNA instructions. Suspended in the cytosol and bound to the (endoplasmic reticulum) | http://www.nsf.gov/news/overviews/biology/interact05.jsp | Analogy: A construction worker.

15: Endoplasmic Reticulum (Rough and Smooth) | Rough Functions: Manufactures membranes and secretory proteins | Smooth Functions: Carbohydrate and lipid synthesis. | Proteins that require special conditions or are destined to become part of the cell membrane are processed in the ER and then handed off to another organelle called the Golgi apparatus. | http://www.nsf.gov/news/overviews/biology/interact07.jsp http://biology.about.com/od/cellanatomy/ss/endoplasmic-reticulum.htm | Analogy: A factory.

16: The similar integration of two cells are on the same pages next to each other or the cell doesn't have an integration with another cell.
