About cell structure. About Cell function.

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    All structures inside the cell that carry out one or more of the cell's life function.
  • 2. 
    Compound of a lipid bilayer, it regulates material entering and leaving the cell. (Gate Keeper)
  • 3. 
    Tough fibrous material (cellulose) surrounding plant cells. Provides structure and support.
  • 4. 
    Gel like substance in which the organelles are suspended.
  • 5. 
    The part of a eukaryotic cell surrounded by a nuclear membrane which contains DNA.
  • 6. 
    Located inside the nucleus, it contains DNA-RNA from which ribosomes are made.
  • 7. 
    Regulates what enters and leaves the nucleus.
  • 8. 
    In nucleus, composed of DNA and proteins that form rod shaped structures prior to cell division.
  • 9. 
    Present in eukaryotic cells, breaks down glucose to produce ATP for energy (cel respiration). Evolved from bacteria, they contain their own DNA and reproduce on their own. 
  • 10. 
    Large membrane - enclosed sac filled with fluid, food, or pigments. Plants have one large central vacuole that also serves as a disposal site an helps maintain turgor pressure.
  • 11. 
    Channel network for moving proteins and lipids.
  • 12. 
    Site where proteins are manufactured, all cells have ribosomes (no membrane).
  • 13. 
    Flat membrane bound sacs which modify, sort and package cell products such as proteins/lipids.
  • 14. 
    Packaged cell sections (hormones, neutrotransmitters) at the Golgi Apparatus. Transported to the cell surface for release.
  • 15. 
    Membrane bound organelle that contains enzymes which digest food and worn-out cell components inside the cell.
  • 16. 
    Membrane bound organelle in plants that converts light energy to chemical energy. Evolve from bacteria & contain own DNA.
  • 17. 
    Several criss-crossed protein fibers that provide cell shape and allow for internal cell movement (organelles/cell division/cell membrane). Made of micro filaments, microtubule & actin filaments.
  • 18. 
    Projections from the cell made of microtubules that are motile and designed either to move the cell itself or to move substances over or around the cell.
