What does "eu" mean in Latin/Greek?

True or real

200

What is the smallest unit of life?

Cell

200

This organelle is the "powerhouse" of the cell

Mitochondria

200

This organelle modifies and ships proteins

Rough ER

200

This organelle contains enzymes to break down old cell parts

Lysosome

300

The organelle that does photosynthesis is called what?

Chloroplast

300

This jelly-like substance is found in all cells.

Cytoplasm

300

This material packages molecules to be shipped out of the cell

Golgi Body

300

These small structures can be found floating free in the cell or attached to the rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER).  

Ribosomes

300

This organelle gives support and shape to PLANT cells

Cell wall

400

Central vacuoles are found in what type of cell?

Plant Cell

400

This material, which controls the cell, is found in all cells.

Genetic material (DNA)

400

This detoxifying organelle modifies and ships carbohydrates and lipids

Smooth ER

400

This organelle makes ATP from glucose (sugar)

Mitochondria

400

If this structure looses enough water, the plant cell wilts.

Central Vacuole

500

This protein-making organelle is found in all cells

Ribosomes

500

This thin, semi-permeable layer is found in all cells.

Cell membrane

500

This structures, made of protein, give support and shape to ALL cells.

Cytoskeleton

500

This small sacs carry materials to and from the Golgi Body

Vesicles

500

This organelle MAKES ribosomes

Nucleolus
