Cell Structure And Function

Daniel Haskell

Plasma or cell membrane

Description: it looks like a clear thin layer.

Function: it regulates all that enters and leaves the cell.

this is in both plant and animal cell.

Cell wall

Wall around cell.

Function: protects and supports the cell.a cell wall is only found in plants.

Cytoplasm

A fluid that fills in the empty space of the cell.

Function:liquid in cell.

found in both plant and animal cell.

Nucleus

Controls the cells actions [ it looks like a tiny ball ].

Function: controls the entire cell.

found in both plants and cells.

centrioles

9 groups of 3

they function cell devision

found only in animal.

chromatin

made of DNA

found in only animals.

ribosomes

give texture.

manufactures proteins.

both animal and plants.


golgi body

to package proteins

they package proteins then send them off into the body.

found in animal and plants.

endoplasmic reticulum e.r

its a double membrane

they fill the cytoplasm

found in both the plant and animals.

mitochondria

looks like a long pink oval.

the power house of the resperation of the cell.

found in both plant and animal cells.

chloroplast

collects sunlight

makes a chemical called AIP

found in only plants

lysosomes

contains enzymez in membranes.

digestes food particles.

found in both.

peroxisomes

contains the reducing enzymes.

breaks down the fatty acids.

found in both plants and animals.

vacuole

like a big water balloon.

holds water in plant cells.

found in both plant and animal cells.

cytoskeleton

gives the shape and coherence.

helps shape the cell.

found in both plant and animal cells.
