Cells

Ashley Mitchell

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.
