Sample flash cards in this set:
|Cell Theory||1. A cell is the basic unit of life. 2. All living things are made up of cells. 3. New cells come from other, pre-existing cells.|
|Organelles||Structures within a cell, enclosed within a membrane, that perform a specific function.|
|Plasma Membrane aka Cell Membrane||Separates the internal contents of the cell from the surrounding environment.|
|Lysosome||Digests food and waste material.|
|Golgi Apparatus||Processes, packages and transports material produced in the cell.|
|Cytoplasm||Semi-fluid substance outside of the nucleus that contains organelles.|
|Mitochondria||Carries out cellular respiration, producing energy for cell (ATP).|
|Central Vacuole||Stores macromolecules, coloured substances that attract insects or repel animals, keeps plant cell firm by pressing on cell wall.|
|Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum||Involved in protein packaging and production, rough because it has ribosomes attached to its surface.|
|Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum||Involved in production of lipids and steroids.|
|Peroxisome||Break down fatty acids and amino acids.|
|Chloroplast||Where photosynthesis takes place.|
|Cell Wall||Maintains cell shape.|
|Cytoskeleton||Provides structure to the cell and assists with movement of the cell parts.|
|Microtubules||Cylinders of protein, maintain cell shape and structure, assist in cell division.|
|Centriole||One of a pair of structures that comprise the centrosome, only visible during cell division.|
|Centrosome||Made up of a pair of centrioles which assist with separation of DNA during cell division.|
|Intermediate Tubules||Protein fibres that give strength and support the cell.|
|Microfilaments||Thinner than microtubules, assist in cell movement.|
|Nucleus||The control center for the cell.|
|Chromatin||Composed of DNA, carries chromosomes.|
|Nuclear Envelope||The membrane that surrounds the nucleus.|
