Joshua Williams Dr. Bhuvana Biology 202 March 15, 2010 Little Mito Answers 1. The names Nuc, Flag, ER, Mito, Chlora, Golgi, Ves, and Lys are short for nucleus, flagella, endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, chloroplast, golgi apparatus, vesicles, and lysosome respectively. The nucleus of the cell is surrounded by a double membrane and contains protons, neutrons, and genetic material. The nucleus is a dense organelle. The flagella of a cell are threadlike structures that move like whips to allow the cell to move. The endoplasmic reticulum of a cell is a membranous network continuous with the outer nuclear membrane that is active in distribution and storage, membrane synthesis, and metabolic processes. It may or may not be covered with ribosomes. The mitochondrion is the powerhouse of the cell. It carries out cellular respiration and generates ATP. Chloroplasts carry out photosynthesis. They convert sunlight energy to chemical energy stored in sugar molecules. The golgi apparatus is an organelle that makes, sorts, modifies, and secretes cell products.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
