1

Cells

in biology,the smallest unit that can preform all life processes

2

Cell membrane

a phospholipid layer that covers a cells surface

3

nucleus

in a eukaryotic cell, a membrane-bound organelle that contains the cells DNA.

4

Cell Wall

Rigid structure that surround that cell membrane and provides support to the cell

5

Ribosome

cell organelle composed of RNA and protein; the site of protein synthesis

6

endoplasmic reticulum

a system of membranes that is found in the cells cytoplasm and that is found in a cell's cytoplasm and that assists in the production, processing, and transport of proteins and in the productions of lipids

7

Golgi complex

cell organelle tat helps make and package materials to be transported out of the cell

8

vesile

a small cavity or sac that contains materials in an eukaryotic cell

9

Lysosome

a cell organelle that contains digestive enzymes

10

Cytoplasm

the material or protoplasm within a living cell, excluding the nucleus.

11

mitochondria

an organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. It has a double membrane, the inner layer being folded inward to form layers (cristae).
