Parts to a Cell

  1. 1. Parts of a Cell
  2. 2. Cytoplasm… <ul><li>…is the clear, gelatinous fluid in cells that is the site of numerous chemical reactions in eukaryotic cells, it suspends the cell’s organelles </li></ul><ul><li>…is located in eukaryotic cells </li></ul>
  3. 3. Cell Membrane… <ul><li>…is the flexible boundary between the cell and its environment; allows materials such as water and nutrients to enter and waste products to leave </li></ul><ul><li>…is located around cells </li></ul>
  4. 4. Cell Wall… <ul><li>… is the fairly rigid structure located outside the plasma membrane of plants, fungi, most bacteria and some protists; also provides supports and protection </li></ul><ul><li>...is located around the plant cell </li></ul>
  5. 5. Ribosomes… <ul><li>…are the non-membrane bound organelles in the nucleus; where proteins are assembled </li></ul><ul><li>…are located in the nucleus </li></ul>
  6. 6. Nucleolus… <ul><li>… is an organelle that produces ribosomes </li></ul><ul><li>… is located in the nucleus </li></ul>
  7. 7. Nucleus… <ul><li>… is the positively charged center of an atom composed of neutrons and positively charged protons but surrounded by negatively charged electrons </li></ul><ul><li>…is located in the center of cells </li></ul>
  8. 8. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum… <ul><li>… is the organelle in eukaryotic cells with a series of highly folded membranes surrounded in cytoplasm; site of cellular chemical reactions; without ribosomes </li></ul><ul><li>… is located in the cytoplasm </li></ul>
  9. 9. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum… <ul><li>… is the organelle in eukaryotic cells with a series of highly folded membranes surrounded in cytoplasm; site of cellular chemical reactions; with ribosomes </li></ul><ul><li>… is located in cytoplasm </li></ul>
  10. 10. Vacuoles… <ul><li>…is the membrane bound part in the cytoplasm of cells used for the temporary storage of materials </li></ul><ul><li>…is located in the cytoplasm </li></ul>
  11. 11. Chloroplasts… <ul><li>… are chlorophyll-containing organelles found in the cells of green plants and some protists; capture light energy and covert it to chemical energy </li></ul><ul><li>… are found in plant cells </li></ul>
  12. 12. Cytoskeleton… <ul><li>…is the cellular framework found within the cytoplasm, composed of microtubules and microfilaments </li></ul><ul><li>…is found in the cytoplasm </li></ul>
  13. 13. Microtubules… <ul><li>…are thin, hallow cylinders made of protein that provide structural support for eukaryotic cells </li></ul><ul><li>…are located in eukaryotic cells in the cytoskeleton </li></ul>
  14. 14. Microfilaments… <ul><li>...are thin, solid protein fibers that provide structural support for eukaryotic cells </li></ul><ul><li>…are in eukaryotic cells in the cytoskeleton </li></ul>
  15. 15. Plastids… <ul><li>…are groups of plant organelles that are used for storage of starches, lipids, or pigments </li></ul><ul><li>…are located in plant cells </li></ul>
  16. 16. Golgi Apparatus… <ul><li>…is an organelle in eukaryotic cells with a system of flattened tubular membranes; sorts and packs proteins and sends them to their appropriate destinations </li></ul><ul><li>…is located near the cell membrane </li></ul>
  17. 17. Lysosomes… <ul><li>…are organelles that contain digestive enzymes; digest excess or worn out organelles, food particles, and engulfed viruses or bacteria </li></ul><ul><li>…are found in animal cells </li></ul>
  18. 18. Mitochondria… <ul><li>…is the eukaryotic membrane-bound organelles that transform energy stored in food molecules; has a highly folded inner membrane that produces energy-storing molecules </li></ul><ul><li>…is located near the cell membrane in both animal and plant cells </li></ul>
  19. 19. Centrioles… <ul><li>…is in animal cells, a pair of small cylindrical structures composed of microtubules that duplicate during inter-phase and move to opposite ends of the cell during prophase </li></ul><ul><li>…is located in animal cells near the nucleus </li></ul>
  20. 20. Flagella… <ul><li>…is a long projection that moves with a whip like motion </li></ul><ul><li>…is located in some eukaryotic cells </li></ul>
  21. 21. Cilia… <ul><li>…are short, numerous projections that look like hairs </li></ul><ul><li>…are located in some eukaryotic cells </li></ul>
