3 Cell Wall A rigid structure that gives support to a cell Found in plant cells, algae, fungus and prokaryotesPlant and algae cells have cell walls made of celluloseFungus have cell walls made of chitin
4 Cell Membrane All cells have a cell membrane Cell membrane is a protective barrier that encloses a cell. It separates the cell’s contents from the cell’s environmentOutermost structure of a cell, unless there is a cell wall.Contains proteins, lipids, and phospholipids
5 Cell membrane cont’dSome of the proteins and lipids control the movement of materials into and out of the cell.Nutrients and water move into the cell, and wastes move out of the cell, through the protein passageways.
6 CytoskeletonA web of proteins in the cytoplasm. Acts as both a muscle and a skeleton.Keeps the cell’s membranes from collapsing.Also helps some cells move.Made of 3 types of protein. One protein is a hollow tube, the other two are long, stringy fibers
7 NucleusLarge organelle in a eukaryotic cell that contains the cell’s DNACovered by two membranes. Materials cross this double membrane by passing through pores.Many cells have a dark area in the nucleus called the nucleolus – which is where a cell begins to make its ribosomes.
8 Ribosomes Organelle that makes proteins. Smallest of all organelles More ribosomes in a cell than any other organelle.Some float freely in cytoplasm, others are attached.Do not have a membrane.
9 Endoplasmic Reticulum A system of folded membranes in which proteins, lipids, and other materials are made.Contains many tubes and passageways, which substances move through to different places in the cell2 kinds of endoplasmic ReticulumRough ERSmooth EREndoplasmic Reticulum
10 Rough ER and Smooth ER Rough ER Smooth ER Does not have ribosomes Covered in ribosomesUsually found near the nucleusThe ribosomes make the proteins that are sent through the ER to other parts of the cellDoes not have ribosomesMakes lipids and breaks down toxic materials that could damage the cell
11 Mitochondria Main power source of the cell Covered by 2 membranes Breaks down sugar to produce energyThe energy released by mitochondria is stored in a substance called ATP.The cell then uses the ATP to do work.Most ATP is made in the inner membrane of the mitochondria.
12 ChloroplastsOrganelles in PLANT AND ALGAE cells in which photosynthesis takes placeHas 2 membranes and make their own DNAThey are green because they contain chlorophyll, which is found inside the inner membrane of a chloroplast.Chlorophyll traps the energy of sunlight, which is used to make sugar.The sugar produces is then used by mitochondria to make ATP
13 Golgi Complex Organelle that packages and distributes proteins Looks like smooth ERLipids and proteins from the ER are delivered to the Golgi Complex. Then the lipids and proteins may be modified to do different jobs.The final product is enclosed in a piece of the GC’s membrane.This membrane pinches off to forma small bubble, which transports the contents to other parts of the cell
14 VesiclesSmall sac that surrounds materials to be moved into or out of a cell, or within a cellThe small part of the Golgi complex that pinches off is a vesicleAll eukaryotic cells have vesiclesVesicles carry new protein from the ER to the Golgi ComplexVesicles distribute material from the Golgi Complex to other parts of the cell
15 Types of Vesicles Lysosomes Vacuoles Responsible for digestion inside a cellDestroys damaged organelles, gets rid of waste materials, and protects cell from foreign invadersSome vacuoles act like lysosomes, helping with digestion within the cell.Plants have large central vacuole that is full of water and helps support the cell
