Nucleous

Nucleous-

Contains DNA—is the control center of the cell.

vacuole

vacuole-

Cell organelle that stores materials such as water, salts, proteins, and carbohydrates

cytoplasm


Cytoplasm-

A jellylike fluid inside the cell in which the organelles are suspended

mitochondria

mitochondria-

A provider of energy for a cell. It breaks down glucose for energy.

lysosome

lysosome-

A small, round cell structure containing chemicals that break down large food particles into smaller ones.

cell wall

cell wall-

A rigid barrier for plant cells that protect and maintain the shape of a plant.

cell

cell-

Basic unit of life

oral groove

oral groove-

The mouth of the paramecium organism where food is taken in

paramecium

paramecium-

Animal-like protist that moves by way of cilia

euglena

euglena-

A protist that has a single flagellum to move itself and obtains its nutrients by the process of photosynthesis.

eyespot

eyespot-

An organelle of the protist euglena that is sensitive to light.

amoeba

amoeba-

Animal-like protist that moves by way of pseudopod

Cell membrane

Controls what goes in and out of the cell.

Is found in both kinds of cells.

chloroplast

Is found only in plant cells.
Sunlight, main energy source,photosynthesis.

cell membrane

cell membrane-

A cell structure that controls which substances can enter or leave the cell.

Rough ER

Rough ER-

Found in both a animal and plant cell. Makes the protein a cell need and acts like the mitochondria.

Cell Theory


Cell theory-

All living things are made of cells.

Cells carry out functions needed to support life.

Cells form from only other living cells.

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic-

Prokaryotic means that the cell does not have a nucleus. Eukaryotic means that the cell does have a nucleus.

Cell Form/organization

cells-tissue-organs-organsystem-organism


The basic unit of all living things except viruses. In advanced organisms, cells consist of a nucleus (which contains genetic material), cytoplasm, and organelles, all of which are surrounded by a cell membrane. Note: Groups of cells with similar structure and function form tissues.
