Golgi bodies

stores and releases chemicals
(packages and refines proteins)

2

nucleus

chromosomes are found here
(control center)

3

chromosomes

contains code which guides all cell activity (DNA)

4

vacuole

contains water and dissolved minerals

5

ribosomes

where proteins are made

6

endoplasmic reticulum

surface area for all cell activity:; transportation highway

7

nuclear membrane

holds nucleus together

8

centrioles

structure involved in mitosis (cell division) in animal cells only

9

cytoplasm

jelly-like substance within cell

10

chlorophyll

traps light and is used to produce food for plants

11

chloroplasts

food for plant cells is made here

12

cell (plasma) membrane

controls entry into and out of cell

13

cell wall

shapes and supports a plant cell

14

mitochondria

"powerhouse" of a cell; creates ATP

15

lyosome

digestion center

16

genes

units of heredity

17

nuclear pore

minute hole in nuclear membrane

18

nucleous

spherical body within nucleus, makes ribosomes

19

plastid

stores food or contains pigment

20

microtubule (cyto-skeleton)

microscopic cylinders that support and give the cell shape
