2 Nucleus The “brain” of the cell Controls all of the cellular activitiesDNA is inside the nucleus
3 Nucleus are found inside the nucleus CHROMOSOMES- carry the information that determines what traits a living thing will haveChromosomes –
4 NUCLEOLUS The dark area in the nucleus Like a tiny nucleus inside the nucleus.
5 Example: like a big plastic bag with tiny holes in it CELL MEMBRANEholds the cell togetherkeeps all of the pieces (like the organelles and the cytoplasm) inside the cellcontrols what goes in and out of the cellExample: like a big plastic bag with tiny holes in it
7 Mitochondria Mito = Mighty / Power The Power-House of the cell They break down food molecules and combine them with oxygen so the cell has the energy to liveIf a cell needs a lot of energy…it will have more mitochondriavilenski.org/science/safari/ cellstructure/mito.html
8 The Mitochondria structure has three main parts: OUTER MEMBRANE: covers the mitochondriaINNER MEMBRANE: folds many times to increase the surface area because chemical reactionsoccur hereSo…the more space it has the more energy it can create
9 Endoplasmic Reticulum also known as the “ER”it is an organelle inside the cell that ismade up of membranes that are in the CYTOPLASM of the cell. TRANSPORTS materials.
10 CYTOPLASM Cytoplasm- Is a jelly-like material, made mostly of water Moves in a circle continuously: CYCLOSISHolds everything inside the cell membrane & outside of the nucleus
12 VACUOLE Vacuoles are “bubbles” that float in the cell Vacuoles are more important to the survival of plant cells than they are to animal cells
13 VACUOLE: STORAGE IN PLANT CELLS Vacuoles in plants support structureVacuoles hold onto things that the cell might need…like a backpackThere are some vacuoles that hold onto waste products, similar to having a big septic tankStoring waste products protects the cell from contamination
14 VACUOLE CONT’DSo, when there is no water…the vacuole shrinks and the cell wall is the only thing holding the plant together.
15 You will know that a plant's vacuoles are shrinking when you see the plant begin to droop over HOLDING UP THE WALLS
17 Chloroplast the site of photosynthesis in eukaryotic cells disk-like structures
18 SOLAR energy radiated from the sun is captured by plants(chloroplast) Then packaged as CHEMICAL energyChloroplast
19 Chloroplast photosynthesis takes place inside the chloroplast the process in which plant use water, carbon dioxide, and energy form the sun to make foodPhotosynthesis-
20 Ribosomessmall dot-like structures in cellsRibosomes are the site of protein synthesis in cellsthey are made in the nucleus of the cellA ribosome can make the average protein in about one minute
