Introduction | Structures/Functions | Prokaryotes vs. Eukaryotes | Types | Reproduction | Theory | Glossary | Credits Within cells there is an intricate network of organelles that all have unique functions. These organelles allow the cell to function properly. Arranged below according to location ( nucleus , cytoplasm , and surface ) is a description of common organelles. You may click on the organelle's name in the list below to directly reach the feature on that structure. Cell wall Centrioles Chloroplasts Chromosome s Cytoskeleton Endoplasmic reticulum Nuclear membrane Nucleolus Golgi apparatus Lysosome Mitochondria Plasma membrane Ribosomes Vacuoles One or more per cell Spherical shape Denser than surrounding cytoplasm Chromosomes - Usually in the form of chromatin - Contains genetic information - Composed of DNA - Thicken for cellular division - Set number per species (i.e. 23 pairs for human) Nuclear membrane - Surrounds nucleus - Composed of two layers - Numerous openings for nuclear traffic
