Animal Cell Review

Cytoplasm

• surrounds organelles
• supports and protects organelles from hitting each other
• Consists of water, salts, organic molecules


Ribosomes

• manufacture proteins for export and for the cell

 

Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)

• storage area
• transportation network
• rough ER has ribosomes on it; smooth ER does not


Golgi Apparatus

• packaging centre
• packages in vesicles


Mitochondria

• respiration (aerobic) centres
• provides the bulk energy for the cell


Lysosomes

• contain digestive enzymes


Microtubules

• slender protein tubes


Microfilaments

• fine protein threads


Cell Membrane

• protects cell from foreign invaders
• regulates what goes in and out of the cell
• used in intercellular transportation of molecules


Carrier Proteins

• found embedded in the cell membrane
• only carries in or out specific molecules/atoms


Vacuoles

• used in export/import functions, exocytosis, endocytosis, etc.


Nucleus

• the control centre of the cell
• contains hereditary/genetic information
