The Plasma Mambrane
The Nucleus
The Cytoplasm
The Plasma Memrane

Forms the cells flexible outer surface, separating the sells internal parts from the outside parts.  Regulates the flow of materials in and out of the cell.  Plays a key role in communication among cells and between cells and external environment.
The Plasma Membrane
(What are it's main parts?)
Phospholipid Bilayer
The Nucleus
(What is it's function?)
Contains the cells genetic inheritance.
Controls day to day functions.
Controls cell structure.
Produces Ribosomes in nucleoli.
Everything between the Nucleus and the Plasma Membrane.  Two main components (1) cytosol (2) Organelles.
The Nucleus
(What are it's main parts?)
Nuclear Envelope.  Nuclear Pores.
Polyribosome.  Nucleoplasm.
Nucleoli.  Chromatin.
