  1. Nucleus –
    The cell nucleus is an organelle that contains most of the cell’s genetic material. The nucleus regulates cell growth and metabolism
  2. Nucleolus –
    The nucleolus is made of RNA and proteins. It transcribes and modifies RNA.
  3. Lysosomes –
    The lysosomes contain enzymes that break down biomolecules. They act as the cell’s waste disposal.
  4. Chromatin
    Chromatin – Chromatin are macromolecules made up of DNA, protein and RNA.
  5. Centrioles –
    The centrioles help with cytokinesis. (The splitting of a cell)
  6. Cytoskeleton –
    The cytoskeleton gives a cell its shape, and prevents if from deforming.
  7. what is the function of serous fluid?
    acts as a lubricant and reduces friction from muscle movement. This can be seen in the lungs, with the pleural gives buoyancy and shock to vital organs like the heart
  8. Cytoplasm –
    The cytoplasm is made up of cytosal, which is a gel-like substance. It is 80% water.
  9. Plasma Membrane –
    Also known as the cell membrane, the plasma membrane is a selectively permeable wall that separates the cell interior from the outside environment.
  10. Ribosomes
    – The ribosomes are made of protein and RNA. They convert genetic material into protein.
  11. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
    – The rough endoplasmic reticulum manufactures enzymes and proteins.
  12. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
    – The smooth endoplasmic reticulum manufactures lipids, phospholipids, and steroids.
  13. Golgi Apparatus
    – The golgi apparatus, also known as the golgi bodies, packages protein inside a cell, in preparation for secretion.
  14. Mitochondria –
    The mitochondria are a cell’s power plants. They generate ATP.
