  1. Nucleus
    • all cells
    • where DNA is found, protection
  2. ribosome
    • synthesizes proteins
    • all
  3. Rough endoplasmic reticulum
    • modifies proteins
    • eukaryote
  4. smooth endoplasmic reticulum
    • synthesizes materials (non-protein) for the cell in surface
    • eukaryote
  5. mitochondria
    • converts energy stored in compounded into usable energy
    • eukaryote
  6. choloroplast
    • performs photosythesis (converts light energy into energy storing compounds.)
    • plant cells
    • some prokaryote
  7. lysosome
    • breaks down waste materials and old organelles.
    • animal cells
  8. cytoskeleton
    • frame work of the cell, made of microtubules
    • eukaryote
  9. cilia
    • short, hair like projections that move materials across the cell surface
    • made of microtubules
    • can be in prokaryote and eukaryote
  10. flagella
    • longer, whip like tails used to move the cell. made of micro tubules
    • can be in prokaryote and eukaryote
  11. vacuole
    • small packets of materials, stoage units, in plants
    • all cells
  12. large vacuole
    • 1 large vacuole that holds water, unicellular organisms
    • plant cells
  13. contractile vacuole
    • pumps out excess water
    • prokaryote and uni eukaryote
  14. cell wall
    • made of carbohydrates
    • outside cell membrane
    • extra layer of protection and support
    • plants some prokaryote
  15. centriole
    • made of microtubules
    • used in cell division
    • animal cells
  16. vesicle
    • small, membrane bound packets
    • hold small amounts of materials for short periods of time.
    • all cells
