"Small organs"; the metabolic machinery of the cell and that are highly organized to carry out specific functions for the cell as a whole

Organelle

1

The structural and functional mite of all living things

Cell

External boundary of cell; regulates flow of materials into and out of the cell

Plasma

3

Contains digestive enzymes of many varieties; "suicide sac" of the cell

Nucleolus

11

Contractile elements of the cytoskeleton

Micro filaments

12

Membranous system that has "rough" and "smooth" varieties

Rough endoplasmic reticulum

13

Attached to membrane systems or scattered in the cytoplasm; synthesize proteins
