Centrosome

organizes and supports microtubule growth, directs formation of mitotic spindle during cell divison

2

Golgi apparatus

Prepares and packages cellular products for exocytosis

3

Lysosome

Contains enzymes that breakdown materials brought into the cell, or releases enzymes out of the cell to digest

4

Microvilli

Increase the plasma membrane surface area for absorption or secretion

Nuclear envelope

regulated movement of materials between cytoplasm and nucleoplasm

6

Nucleolus

Site of RNA synthesis

Ribosomes

Provide attachment site for mRNA during protein synthesis

Smooth ER

site of lipid and carbohydrate assembly

9

Rough ER

Site of protein synthesis

Plasma membrane

Provides a barrier for the cell, regulates movement of the materials in and out of the cell

11

Cytoplasm

Region of cellular metabolism and other activities that maintain the cell

12
