what is an organelle
What is an organelle?

Organelles are structures specialized to perform distinct processes within a cell.

where are organelles found
Where are organelles found?

Organelles are found in the cytoplasm of Eukaryotic cells…plant and animal cells.

nucleus
Nucleus
  • Brain of the cell
  • Stores all genetic information
  • Must protect DNA and have it ready for cell to use
  • Enclosed by a nuclear membrane
  • Contains nucleolus-place where ribosomes are made
endoplasmic reticulum
Endoplasmic Reticulum
  • 2 types:
    • Smooth
    • Rough
  • Proteins and lipids are produced here
  • Produces, processes and distributes proteins throughout the cell
ribosomes
Ribosomes
  • Link amino acids to form proteins
  • Site of protein synthesis
  • Made of proteins and RNA
golgi apparatus
Golgi Apparatus
  • Processes, sorts and delivers proteins
  • Post Office of the cell
vesicles
Vesicles
  • Sac that divides some material from the rest of the cytoplasm and transports them from place to place
mitochondria
Mitochondria
  • Powerhouse of the cell
  • Supplies energy to the cell
  • Bean shaped
  • Made of two membranes
    • Inner membrane is place where food is converted into energy
vacuole
Vacuole
  • Storage site for cells
lysosome
Lysosome
  • Contain enzymes
  • Defend cell from invading bacteria and viruses
  • Breaks down damaged or worn out cell parts
  • Animal cell only
centriole
Centriole
  • Cylinder shape
  • Made of short microtubules
  • 2 centrioles perpendicular to one another
  • Play role in cell division
  • Organize microtubules to form cilia and flagella
  • Animal cell only
chloroplast
Chloroplast
  • Carry out photosynthesis
  • Convert solar energy into chemical energy
  • Contain chlorophyll which makes plants green
  • Plants only
central vacuole
Central Vacuole
  • Large sac filled with fluid that strengthens and helps support the cell
  • Prevents plant from wilting
  • Plants only
cell wall
Cell Wall
  • Surrounds cell membrane
  • Rigid layer that protects, supports and shapes the cell
