Vacuole
Found in plants and some single-celled organisms- filled with liquid.
Ribosome
Small particles of RNA and protein found throughout the cytoplasm involved in protein synthesis.
Lysosomes
Filled with enzymes.
Golgi Apparatus
Stack of membrane=bound vesicles.
Smooth Enoplasmic Reticulum
Cellular internal membrane system- no ribosomes are found on the surface.
Mitochondria
Rod shaped- with folded membrane called cristae.
Cell Wall
Rigid barrier outside the cell membrane- made of carbohydrates- found in plants, algae, fungi, and prokaryotes.
Cell Membrane
Bi-lipid layer with embedded proteins- surrounds the cell.
Cytoskeleton
Network of Protein filaments called microtubules and microfilaments.
Cytoplasm
Area between the cell membrane and the nucleus- jelly like material 80% water.
Nucleus
Bound by a double membrane- contains the cell's DNA.
Nucleolus
Found inside the Nucleus.
Chloroplast
Found in all higher plant cells- contain chlorophyll- double outer membrane- have stroma, thylakoids, and grana- where photosynthesis takes place.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
Cellular internal membrane system- site of ribosomes and therefore protein synthesis.
Centrioles
Made from Microtubules- form a pair of structures- located near the nucleus.
