Ribosomes – synthesize proteins
Nucleoid – contains DNA
Pili – attachment structures
Cytoskeleton – meshwork of fine fibers in the cytoplasm
Ribosomes – structure consisting of RNA and protein organized into two
subunits and functioning as the site of protein synthesis
Lysosome – a digestive organelle in the cell
Flagellum – a long appendage that propels protists through water and
moves fluids across the surface of cells
Nucleus – genetic control center of a eukaryotic cell
Smooth endoplasmic reticulum – network of interconnected membranous
tubules in cell cytoplasm – enzymes in the SER function in the synthesis
of certain kinds of molecules such as lipids
Golgi apparatus – an organelle consisting of stacks of membranous sacs
that modify, store and ship products of the endoplasmic reticulum
Rough endoplasmic reticulum – network of interconnected membranous
sacs in the cytoplasm – studded with ribosomes that make membrane
proteins and secretory proteins.
10. Mitochondrion – organelle where cellular respiration occurs, where most
of the cells ATP is made.
11. Plasma membrane – thin layer of lipids and proteins that sets a cell off
from its surroundings and acts as a selective barrier to the passage of ions
and molecules into and out of the cell.
