Systems In Living Things Animal Cells
Parts of a Cell Organelles- Organelles are the structures in every living cell that perform the specialized functions for living.
A typical animal cell. Within the cytoplasm, the major organelles and cellular structures include: (1) nucleolus (2) nucleus (3) ribosome (4) vesicle (5) rough endoplasmic reticulum (6) Golgi apparatus (7) cytoskeleton (8) smooth endoplasmic reticulum (9) mitochondria (10) vacuole (11) cytosol (12) lysosome (13) centriole
Cell Membrane • The Cell membrane is the covering that holds the cell together and regulates materials that pass in and out.
Nucleus • The nucleus of the cell contains its genetic information, DNA. It may be considered the “brain” of the cell.
Cytoplasm • The cell is filled with fluid called Cytoplasm. It holds the Organelles and contains dissolved minerals the cell needs.
Endoplasmic Reticulum • The Endoplasmic Reticulum is a complex network that plays a role in producing and transporting cell products.
Golgi Apparatus • The Golgi Apparatus is a system of sacks that sort, package, and transport products inside the cell or discard them outside.
Lysosomes • Lysosomes are where food particles are digested.
Mitochondria • Mitochondria are little power plants where cellular respiration takes place to release energy stored in foods. The energy that keeps life going.
