Cell Structure and Function

 

Structure a piece of the whole or an identifiable part

Structure in a cell structure are known as organelles

Function a job that a piece or unit does

 

Structure

Function

nucleus

The boss, directs the cells activities

Cell membrane

Gate keeper, allows selective materials to enter or leave

Separates cell from environment, protects against invasion

Mitochondria

Releases energy for use of the organism

Cytoplasm

The jell that contains all the organelles, material in which chemical reactions take place

Ribosomes

Part of endoplasmic recticulum place of protein synthesis

Endoplasmic Recticulum

The factory and construction pathway

Vacuole

A storage area

Cell wall

Made of cellulose, provides rigidity to plant cell, support and shape

chloroplast

Converts sunlight into sugar for later energy needs

Made green by the chemical chlorophil

lysosome

Contain materials to break down and get rid of wastes

centrioles

Nucleus of animal cells help in mitosis
