Define chromosomes, plasma membrane, cytoplasm, ribosomes, and organelles.
- Chromosomes: a threadlike, gen-carrying structure found in the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell
- most visible during mitosis and meiosis
plasma membrane: the membrane at the boundary of every cell that acts as a selective barrier
cytoplasm: the contents of a eukaryotic cell between the plasma membrane and the nucleus
ribosomes: a cell structure consisting of RNA and protein organized into two subunits and functioning as the site of protein synthesis in the cytoplasm
organelles: a membrane-enclosed structure with a specialized function within a cell
