|Identify the functions of the nucleus.
|Controls cell activity Contains genetic material.
|What is a type of eukaryotic cell ?
|animal or plant cell.
|what is the function of the mitochondria?
|an organelle where aerobic respiration takes place.
|what is an organelle?
|Specialised structures found within a living cell.
|What is the function of a chloroplast?
|a plant organelle where photosynthesis takes place.
|What is the function of ribosomes?
|How can you tell the difference between the RER and the SER?
|RER is embedded with ribosomes SER has no ribosomes.
|What is the structure of the golgi apparatus?
|A stack of membrane bound flattened sacks.
|What is the function of the nucleolus ?
|Makes RNA and ribosomes.
|What is the function of the cytoplasm?
|The place where metabolic reactions take place.
|What is the structure of the cell membrane?
|a phospholipid bilayer, embedded with proteins.
|What is the function of vesicles?
|To transport materials around and out the cell.
|What are lysosomes?
|Specialised vesicles that contain digestive enzymes that break down waste material from inside the cell.
|What are centrioles?
|They form spindles that pull apart chromosomes during cell division.
|What is exocytosis?
|The process of vesicles fusing with the plasma membrane and secreting it's contents.
|What is the cell wall made of?
|What is the function of the cell wall?
|Protects and supports each cell and the whole plant.
|What is a vacuole?
|Membrane bound sac containing cell sap that maintain a turgid structure to the cell.
|What is the tonoplast?
|It is the partially permeable membrane of the vacuole.
|What is an amyloplast?
|A double membrane-bound sac containing starch granules.
|What is the function of the amyloplast?
|Responsible for the synthesis and storage of starch granules.
|What is a plasmodesmata?
|Channels within the cell wall of plant cells which enables transport and communication between plant cells.
|What are the pits inside plant cells?
|Pores in the cell walls of the xylem that allows water to enter and leave the xylem vessels.
