What the seven requirements of life ?
What is the function of a nucleus ?
- Acts like the Brain of the cell
-Stores genetic information in the from of DNA
- Helps control movement, eating and reproduction
In what type of cell is found in ?
It is found in both Animal cells and Plant cell
What type of microscope can a nucleus be viewed under ?
What type of acid is found in the Nucleus ?
ribonucleic acid (RNA)
What is the function of the cell wall ?
To provide a structural layer and found outside the cell membrane.
In what type of a cell can a cell wall be found?
Plant cell only
What is the cell wall made out of ?
It is made up of Cellulose.
From what type of a microscope can you view a cell wall ?
It can be seen through a light microscope.
What is the function of the Mitochondria ?
- It is know as the power house of the cell
- it breaks down nutrients and turns them into energy rich molecules
What is the type of energy dose the mitochondria produce ?
It produces Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). These are found in cells with high energy needs.
In what type of cells will you find a mitochondria in ?
They are found in Eukaryotic cells
What is the function of a Ribosome ?
They assemble amino acids to create specific proteins. these proteins are essential to carry out cellular activities.
In what types of cells can you find a Ribosome in ?
Ribosome are found in is both plant of animals cells.
From what type of a microscope can you view the a ribosome with ?
It can be seen with the electron microscope
What are the ribosomes known as ?
They are known as the protein factories
Where are Ribosomes found in cells ?
Ribosomes are found in plant and animal cell
What is the process that the ribosome uses to create certain proteins?
The process is called
Where in a cell can the Ribosome be found ?
It may be found in the cytosol
What is the Function of the endo-plasmic reticulum ?
membrane system of folded sacs and interconnected channels that serve as a site for protein and lipid synthesis.
What is the difference between a Rough and a smooth Endo-Plasmic Reticulum ?
A rough Endo-Plasmic reticulum is when there is a ribosome at the end of it.
A smooth Endo-Plasmic reticulum is just it by it self
In what type of cells can you find a Endo-Plasmic reticulum be found ?
It can be found in both plant and animal cell.
From What microscope can you view an Endo-Plasmic reticulum ?
It can be seen through an electron microscope
Near which organelle can a endo-plasmic reticulum be found ?
Near the Nucleus
What are the two other names for the Golgi apparatus ?
The two names are
What is the function of the Golgi Apparatus ?
The Golgi apparatus gets simple molecules and combines them to make molecules that are more complex. It takes those big molecules, packages them in vesicles.
In what type of cells can we find the Golgi apparatus in ?
It can be found in both animal and plant cells
What kind of microscope do you have to use when looking at the Golgi apparatus ?
Viewed using Transmition electron microscope (TEM). and electron microscope.
Near which organelle can the Golgi apparatus be found next to ?
- the endo plasmic reticulum
In what type of cells can you find the Lysosome in?
In Eukaryotic cells especially in animal cells
What is the function of the lysosome?
To break down cellular waste and gets rid of it.
What do lysosomes contain that helps it break down cellular waste?
What is the function of a peroxisome?
Peroxisomes neutralize harmful toxins and carry out lipid metabolism(energy needs)
What reactions breaks amino and fatty acids?
oxidation reactions that break down fatty acids and amino acids.
