Parts and Functions of an Animal CellMitochondriaMitochondria are responsible for cellular respirationRough Endoplasmic ReticulumThe endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is, in essence, thetransportation system of the eukaryotic cell, andhas many other important functions such as proteinfolding.RibosomeRibosomes are a cell structure that makes protein.Protein is needed for many cell functions suchasrepairing damage or directing chemicalprocesses.VacuoleVacuoles are compartments in cells that are filledwith water. They also may contain inorganic andorganic molecules.CentrosomeThe centrosome provides structure for the cell. Thecentrosome is thought to have evolved only in themetazoan lineage of eukaryotic cells.MicotubulesMicrotubules are polymers of tubulin that form partof the cytoskeleton and provide structure andshape to eukaryotic cells.LysosomeThe function of lysosomes is to remove waste aswell as destroying a cell after it has died, calledautolysis.
