Cell Organelles Sonya Emery Chemistry Period 2
Plant Versus Animal Cells
Plant and animal cells are similar. They both have a Nucleus, Cytoskeleton, Mitochondrion, Ribosome, Endoplasmic Reticulum, Golgi apparatus, and Lysosome. An animal cell has other things like multiple vacuoles, and centrioles. A plant cell has organelles like one large vacuole, a chloroplast, and a rigid cell wall.
A Cell Is Like A House
A cell is like a house because it has multiple functions and takes more than just one thing operate. A house is just as complex a structure as a cell is.
A Nucleus Is Like A Living Room
The nucleus is like a living room because it is the center of the cell. In most houses, the living room is where the most action happens; families and friends gather, entertainment is produced and much more. In a cell, some of the more important things happen in the nucleus; transcription, translation and replication.
The Cell Membrane Is Like A Wall
The cell membrane protects the inside of a cell and a wall of a house protects the inside of the house.
The Endoplasmic Reticulum Is Like A Hallway
The Endoplasmic reticulum is like a hallway because it is a passage way for proteins to move in and out of the cell just as a hallway is a passage to move around in a house.
The Golgi Apparatus Is Like A Closet
The Golgi apparatus is like a closet because it packages and moves proteins as a closet is for placing packages.
The Mitochondrion Is Like Electricity
The mitochondrion is like electricity because it is what gives the cell its energy and power. Electricity powers the house and makes it so that the house can function its appliances. The mitochondrion are also called the powerhouse of the cell.
The Vacuole Is Like A Refrigerator
The vacuole is like a refrigerator because it stores food and water. Vacuoles also store the waste from the cell, making it the only difference from a refrigerator.
The Ribosome Is Like A Kitchen
The ribosome is like a kitchen because it is where food is transformed and cooked to be consumed and changed into energy. The ribosome is where the proteins are changed (where translation takes place).
