Eukaryotic Cells And Organelles

What is a prokaryotic cell?
Single celled organism, simple, small, e.g bacteria
1 of 29
What is a eukaryotic cell?
Complex, include animal and plant cells
2 of 29
What does a plant cell have that an animal doesn't?
Cell wall and plasmodesmata , vacuole, chloroplasts
3 of 29
Description of plasma membrane
Made of lipids and protein
4 of 29
Function of plasma membrane
Regulates movement of substances in/out of cell. It also has receptor molecules
5 of 29
Description of cell wall
Rigid structure that surrounds plant cells. Made of cellulose.
6 of 29
Function of cell wall
Supports plant cells
7 of 29
Description of lysosome
Round organelle surrounded by a membrane, no clear internal structure
8 of 29
Function of lysosome
Contains digestive enzymes which can be used to digest invading cells or break down cells
9 of 29
Description of ribosome
Small, floats in cytoplasm or is attached to RER. Made up of proteins and RNA
10 of 29
Function of ribosome
The site where proteins are made
11 of 29
Description of RER
System of membranes enclosing a fluid filled space, covered with ribosomes
12 of 29
Function of RER
Folds and processes proteins that have bee made at the ribosomes
13 of 29
Description of SER
Similar to RER, without ribosomes
14 of 29
Function of SER
Synthesises and processes lipids
15 of 29
Description of Vesicle
Small fluid filled sac surrounded by a membrane
16 of 29
Function of vesicle
Transports substances in/out of cell and between organelles
17 of 29
Description of golgi
Fluid filled membrane bound flattened sacs
18 of 29
Function of golgi
Processes and packages new lipids and proteins. Makes lysosomes
19 of 29
Description of mitochondria
Double membrane, inner one is folded to form cristae. Inside is matrix which contains enzymes involved in respiration
20 of 29
Function of mitochondria
Site of aerobic respiration where ATP is produced
21 of 29
Description of chloroplast
Small flattened structure surrounded by double membrane and has thylakoid membranes. These can be stacked up to form Grana. They are linked together by lamellae.
22 of 29
Function of chloroplast
Where photosynthesis takes place
23 of 29
Description of centriole
Small, hollow cylinders made of micro-tubules
24 of 29
Function of centriole
Separation of chromosomes during cell division
25 of 29
Description of cilia
Small hair-like structures
26 of 29
Function of cilia
Microtubules allow cilia to move
27 of 29
Description of flagellum
Like cilia but longer
28 of 29
Function of flagellum
The microtubules contract to make the flagellum move
