Structure/Function Cell Part
Stores material within the cell
Closely stacked, flattened sacs (plants only)
The sites of protein synthesis
Transports materials within the cell
The region inside the cell except for the nucleus
Organelle that manages or controls all the cell functions in a eukaryotic cell
Contains chlorophyll, a green pigment that traps energy from sunlight and gives plants their green color
Digests excess or worn-out cell parts, food particles and invading viruses or bacteria
Small bumps located on portions of the endoplasmic reticulum
Provides temporary storage of food, enzymes and waste products
Firm, protective structure that gives the cell its shape in plants, fungi, most bacteria and some protests
Produces a usable form of energy for the cell
Packages proteins for transport out of the cell
Everything inside the cell including the nucleus
Site where ribosomes are made
The membrane surrounding the cell
Provides support for the cell, has two “subparts”
Name for the collection of DNA in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells
Consist of hollow tubes which provide support for the cell
Small hair-like structures used for movement or sensing things
Composed of a phospholipid bilayer
Longer whip-like structures used for movement
  1. Put a check in the appropriate column(s) to indicate whether the following organelles are found in plant cell organelles, animal cells or both.

  1. Answer the following questions briefly
  2. In what organelle does cellular respiration take place?
  1. Name two storage organelles?
  1. What is the list of organelles that take part in protein synthesis?
  1. How is the nucleus involved in protein synthesis?
  1. What organelle is considered a “factory”, because it takes in raw materials and converts them to cell products that can be used by the cell?
  1. How does the membrane of the cell differ from the nuclear membrane?   What advantages does this difference have for the nucleus?
  1. What do ribosomes do?   Are they found freely floating in the cytoplasm? OR are they found attached to another organelle?   OR both.   Explain why this occurs.
  1. What does the endoplasmic reticulum do?
  1. What is the difference between rough ER and smooth ER?   What is the ER doing that is different in each case?
  1. What are lysosomes?   What types of molecules would be found inside a lysosome?
  1. Why might a lysosome fuse with or link up with a food vacuole?
  1. In what organelle do molecules move from the ER to the Golgi bodies?
  1. What is a centriole?   In what type of cell (plant or animal) is it found? What does it do for the cell?
  1. Read the following cell organelles, then explain it in brief!
  2. Mitochondria
