  1. "Power plant" of  the cell; sites oxidative metabolism
    Mitochondria
  2. Long strand of DNA and protein that contain hereditary information
    Chromosome
  3. Outer layer of cellulose or chitin that functions as protection or support
    Cell Wall
  4. Sites of genes for rRNA synthesis; assembles ribosomes
    Nucleolus
  5. Small assemblies of protein and RNA, often bound to the ER; sites protein synthesis
    Ribosomes
  6. Sites of photosynthesis
    Chloroplast
  7. Network of internal membranes that form the compartments and vesicles; participates in protein and lipid synthesis
    Endoplasmic reticulum (ER)
  8. Packages proteins for export from the cell; forms secretory vesicles
    Golgi apparatus
  9. Vesicles that digest worn-out organelles; play role in cell death
    Lysosomes
  10. Network of protein filaments; functions as structural support and in cell movement
    Cytoskeleton
  11. Control center; directs protein synthesis and cell reproduction
    Nucleus
  12. Lipid bilayer with proteins that regulate what passes into and out of the cell
    Plasma membrane
  13. Vesicles that isolate particular chemical activities from the rest of the cell
    Microbodies or Peroxisomes
  14. 9+2 arrangement of microtubles; functions in motility or moving fluids over surfaces
    Flagella/Cilia
