Rigid boundry that supports plant cells.
Cell Wall P
Fluid substance contained in the nucleus.
Nucleoplasm
Organizes and makes protein, can be free floating.

Protein tube, provides support, smallest strand of cytoskeleton.
Microfilaments
Region of the cell between the nucleus and cell membrane.
Cytoplasm (P,A)
Longer, hair-like microtubules, function in locomotion.
Flagella
Short, hair-like microtubles, move substances, used for locomotion.

Nucleus (P,A)
Selectively permeable outer boundry of the cell.
Cell membrane (P,A)
Processes and packages substances produced by cell, "storage"
Golgi Apparatus (A,P)
In plant cell, contains starch, fats, or pigments.
Plastid (P)
Membrane that surrounds the nucleus.
Nuclear Member (P,A)
Openings that allow the passage of substances between nucleus and cytoplasm.
