    Biology 7 2 Biology 7 2 Presentation Transcript

    • Eukaryotic Cell Structure 7.2
    • Organelle
      Specialized structure that performs important cellular functions within a eukaryotic cell.
    • Cytoplasm
      Material inside the cell membrane not including the nucleus.
    • Nuclear Envelope
      Layer of two membranes that surrounds the nucleus of the cell.
    • Chromatin
      Granular material visible within the nucleus; consists of DNA tightly coiled around proteins.
    • Chromosome
      Threadlike structure within the nucleus containing the genetic information that is passed from one generation of cells to the next.
    • Nucleolus
      Small, dense region within most nuclei in which the assembly of proteins begins.
    • Ribosome
      Small particle in the cell on which proteins are assembled; made of RNA and protein.
    • Endoplasmic Reticulum
      Internal membrane system in cells in which lipid components of the cell membrane are assembled and some proteins are modified.
    • Golgi Apparatus
      Stack of membranes in the cell that modifies, sorts, and packages proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum.
    • Lysosome
      Cell organelle filled with enzymes needed to break down certain materials in the cell.
    • Vacuole
      Cell organelle that stores materials such as water, salts, proteins, and carbohydrates.
    • Mitochondrion
      Cell organelle that converts the chemical energy stored in food into compounds that are more convenient for the cell to use.
    • Chloroplast
      Organelle found in cells of plants and some other organisms that captures the energy from sunlight and converts it into chemical energy.
    • Cytoskeleton
      Network of protein filaments within some cells that helps the cell maintain its shape and is involved in many forms of cell movement.
    • Centriole
      One of two tiny structures located in the cytoplasm of animal cells near the nuclear envelope.
    • Key Concepts
      What are the functions of the major cell structures?
      The nucleus contains nearly all the cell’s DNA and with it the coded instructions for making proteins and other important molecules.
