Unformatted text preview: The Parts of Cells Student Worksheet Table 1. Parts involved in Protein Synthesis found in almost ALL eukaryotes
Organelle1 Where Function # Membrane Layers Parts Nucleus Connected to rER by endomembrane system Free in cytosol, bound to rER cell control, genetic storage, mRNA synthesis 2: nuclear envelope with pores; shape maintained by nuclear lamina 0 chromatin, nucleolus; sometimes chromosomes proteins and RNA Ribosome1 protein synthesis; translates mRNA to proteins Rough endoplasmic reticulum (rER) Golgi apparatus connects to nuclear membrane at one end, may vesiculate into sER or vesicles at other end Makes & exports plasma membrane, folds & assists protein assembly, exports proteins a system of "factories" that synthesizes many carbohydrates; also finishes rER products, adds signalling proteins to vesicles 1 cisternae and their lumena, the cisternal spaces 1 Faces rER at cis end cisternae and their lumena, the cisternal spaces 1 ribosomes are not membrane-bound, and thus are not organelles by many people's definition The Parts of Cells Student Worksheet
Table 2. Organelles NOT involved in Protein Synthesis, but still found in almost ALL eukaryotic cells
Organelle Where Function # Membrane Layers Parts Mitochondria cytosol cellular respiration 2 with intermembrane space between 1 Inner membrane forms folds (cristae) enclosing the matrix None Smooth endoplasmic reticulum (sER) Vacuole Outfolding of rER, between rER and plasma membrane cytosol lipid synthesis, detoxification Storage (many different kinds), food & water transport / removal 1 none Lysozome cytosol intracellular digestion for 3 reasons 1 & many H+ pumps (keeps a) digest food interior acidic) b) recycle damaged organelles c) destroy cell (cell death) None, but contains... Hydrolytic enzymes Peroxisome cytosol Converts H2O2 to water; lipid digestion 1 H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide, a powerful toxin) Table 3. Organelle found only in Plant cells
Organelle Where Function # Membrane Layers Who Parts Chloroplast cytosol photosynthesis 2 with intermembrane space between plants and algae stacks of single membrane thylakoids The Parts of Cells Student Worksheet Table 4. Parts of Cells that are not Organelles
