Organelle-Description-function-present in plants animals or both
Cell Membrane-liquid-keeps pathogenic material out and nutrients in-animal
cell Wall- plan exterior barrier-provides structure-keeps things in and out-plants
Cytoplasm-jelly like substance-keeps things in place important reactions happen-both
Nucleus-center of a cell-stores DNA material-both
nuclear membrane-surrounds nucleus-keeps genetic material and nucleotides together-both
Nucleolus-inner layer if nucleus-protects and holds DNA material-both
Centrioles-dot like structure-helps structural support when a cell splits(Mitosis)-both
Chromatin- looks like hair strands- builds cells according to their print-both
Ribosomes-tiny dots along the E.R-produces protein-both
Endoplasmic Reticulum- looks like a stack of pancakes-transports nutrients and waste-both
Mitochondria-shaped like pill- makes energy for the cell (powerhouse)-both
Chloroplast- shaped like a pill(also)-carries out photosynthesis-plants
Lysosmes-tiny ball shaped-breaks down macronutrients
peroxisomes-tiny ball on the cell membrane's outermost layer-carry out vital reactions on a cell surface-animal
vacuole-almost pill shaped like a balloon-stores water-both
Cytoskeleton- look like hair strands-provides support in cell-both
Golgi apparatus- looks like a stack of pancakes also-takes big molecules and stores them for later or either sends them out of the cell.
Similaraties and Differences
Animal cells have a round irregular shape while plant cells have a rectangular shape.
Animal cells have no cell wall while plant cells do. Animal cells have no chloroplast, while plant cells do. They both have a endoplastmic reticulum, and they both have cell membranes.
