(present on some prokaryotes) - structures protruding from the cell membrane that help the cell move.

particles where proteins are synthesized (translation).
lipid bilayer structure that separates cell from outside environment AND regulates what can enter/exit the cell.
Plasma (cell) membrane
jellylike substance contained by the cell membrane where most chemical reactions take place.
region where DNA is located.
appendages protruding from the capsule that help the cell adhere to surfaces.
