    • DNA that is organized into discreat units that carry the genetic information.
    • -chromatin

    a complex of proteins and DNA
  7. what is the nucleolus?
    • -appears as a mass of densely stained granules and fibers adjoining part of the chromatin.
    • -ribosomal RNA (rRNA) is synthesized from instructions in the DNA

  10. what is the endoplasmic reticulum?
    • -network of membraneous sacs and tubes

  11. what does smoth ER do?
    • -diversely metabolic processes
    • -synthesis of lipids
    • -metabolism of carbohydrates
    • -detoxification of drugs and alcohol
  12. rough ER?
    • deals with protein modification.
    • -separates secretory proteins and proteins produces by ribosomes
  13. golgi apparatus?
    • -where products of the ER such as protein are modified and then stored and then sent to other destinations
    • -lokes like stack of pancakes or pita bread
    • -ci receive; trans ship, cis next to ER
    • -if protein is not fully functional will send a transport vessicle through layer and may become modified. when gets through will go to cell
  14. lysosomes
    • -digestive organelle where macromolecules are hydrolyzed
    • -made by rough ER and then transfered to the golgi apparatus for furter processing
    • -some arrise by budding to the transface of the golgi apparatus

    • -contains digestive enzymes
    • -
  15. what is phagocytosis
    small cell organisms eat smaller ones and small particles tehn digest it using a food vacuole that attaches to a lysosome, whose enzymes digest the food
  16. plasma membrane
    • membrane enclosing the cell
    • -functions as a selective barrier that allows sufficient passage of oxygen, nutrients, and waste to service the entire cell
  17. cytoplasm
    • the interior of a prokaryotic cell
    • -also the region between the nucleus and the plasma membrane of a eukaryotic cell.
  18. cytosol
    the liquid
  19. what types of vacuoles
    • -food vacuoles
    • -contactile vacuoles
    • -central vacuole
  20. food vacuole
    • -formed by phagocytosis
    • -container for food
  21. contractile vacuole
    • pump excess water out of the cell
    • (paramesium)
  22. central vacuole
    • -prominent organelle in older plant cells
    • -functions include breakdown of waste products, hydrolysis of molecules
    • -enlargement of vacuole is a major mechanism of plant growth
    • -derived from ER and Golgi apparatus

    • -selective in transporting solute and makes cell sap, different in composition from cytosol
    • -membrane bound vesicles
  23. mitochondria

    • -green eggs with circle stacks connected o eachother
    • -photosynthetic organelle
    • -converts energy of sunlight to chemical energy stored in sugar molecules
  25. peroxisomes
    • -organelle with various specialized metabolic functions
    • -produces hydrogen peroxide as a byproduct then converts it to water
    • -deactivates or modify compound
  26. what is included in the cytoskeleton?
    • -microfilameles
    • -microtubules
    • -intermediate filaments
  27. what is a cyoskleton?

  28. microtubules
    • -thickest of 3 in cyrtoskeleton
    • -hollow rods
    • -made of actin
    • -shape and support the cell
    • -like little balls in a string
    • -has a positive side
    • -grow by adding tubuin dimers and can be disassembled
    • -tubulin can be used to build microtubulin elsewhere
  29. intermediate filaments
    • -fibers with diameter ina middle range
    • -made of keratin
  30. micreofilaments
    • thinnest of 3

  31. centrsome and centrioles
    • -region where the cell's microtubules are initiated
    • -contains a pair of centrioles
    • (looks like straw starts that are 90 degress to eachother)
    • -microtubules funtion as a compression-resisting girder of the cytoskeleton
    • -centrioleles contained of 9 sets of triple microtubles arranged in a ring
  32. flagellum and cilium (flagella and cilia)
