Structures & Functions
Nucleus and the Stuff Around It
BONUS: Plant Cells

100

It's mainly used for locomotion. Is longer than cilia andn moves in a snake like pattern.
What is the flagellum?

100

IT'S THE JELLYBEAN!!!
What is the mitochondrion (mitochondria)?

100

It is comprised of cytosol (gel-like substance) and the organelles "float" in it.
What is the cytoplasm?

100

It controls many of the functions of the cell and contains DNA.
What is the Nucleus?

100

Found in BOTH plant and animal cells, responsible for producing the energy currency of the cell, ATP, through respiration, and to regulate cellular metabolism AKA THE POWERHOUSE OF THE CELL
What is the mitochondria?

200

It makes proteins which are needed for many cell functions such as repairing damage or directing chemical processes. They can be bound to an organelle or roam freely.
What is the Ribosome?

200

Which organelle has this structure?
What is the Golgi Apparatus?

200

It is a selectively permeable to ions and organic molecules and controls the movement of substances in and out of cells.
What is plasma membrane?

200

It surrounds the nucleus with a double membrane with multiple pores- the pores regulate the passage of macromolecules like proteins and RNA
What is the Nuclear Envelope?

200

Which organelle found in BOTH plant and animal cells has this structure?
What are ribosomes?

300

It is responsible for modifying, sorting and packaging of proteins for secretion.
What is the Golgi Apparatus?

300

Which organelle has this structure?
What is the flagella (flagellum)?

300

It contains digestive enzymes that digest excess or worn out organelles, food particles, and engulfed viruses or bacteria. (Removes waste)
What are lysosomes?

300

It is located inside the nucleus; it makes ribosomal sub units from proteins and ribosomal RNA (rRNA).
What is the Nucleolus?

300

It converts light energy from the sun to make sugar that can be used by cells.
What is the chloroplast?

400

They are the thinnest filaments of the cytoskeleton and are found in the cytoplasm; it is flexible but still strong, resisting crushing and buckling while providing support to the cell. They function in cellular movement.
What are Microfilaments?

400

Which organelle has this structure?
What are microtubules?

400

Made up of microtubules that are compression resistant and come in pairs. It helps with cell division, helps in the formation of the spindle fibers that separate the chromosomes during cell division.
What is the centriole?

400

It is responsible for making cellular products like hormones and lipids.
What is the Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum?

400

Largest compartment of a plant cell that contains cell sap. It plays a role in the growth of a plant cell.
What is the central vacuole?

500

They are part of the cytoskelton and are made from tubulin. They are the routes upon which organelles move through the cell.
What are Microtubules?

500

Which organelle has this structure?
What are microfilaments?

500

Creates hydrogen peroxide that is later converted to water. Used to break down fatty acids, detoxify alcohol and other toxic substances.
What is peroxisome?

500

It is found next to the nucleus; it is responsible for the assembly of many proteins and contains ribosomes on itself.
What is the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum?

500

It is the membrane that surrounds the large vacuole in mature plant cell.
What are tonoplast?
