  3. Converts the chemical energy in food into a form that is more easily used
    Mitochondria
  4. Transport channels that are studded with Ribosomes

  16. Threadlike structures made of actin that support the cell and help the cell move
    Microfilaments
  17. Large structure that contains the cell's genetic information
    Nucleus
  18. Granular material visible within the nucleus
    Chromatin
  19. The small dense region in the nucleus where the assembly of ribosomes begins
    Nucleolus
  20. The distinct thread like structures that contain the genetic information of the cell
    chromosomes
  21. The double-membrane layer that surrounds the nucleus
    nuclear envelope
  22. One of two tiny structures located in the cytoplasm of animal cells that help organize cell division.
    centrioles
