animal cell
<div>CELL MEMBRANE: the cell membrane is sermipermeable, allowing some substances to pass into the cell and blocking others. Is a thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the cell.</div>
<div>CYTOPLASM: the jellylike material outside the cell nucleus in which the organelles are located.</div>
<div>GOLGI APPARATUS: they are flattened stacks of membrane-bound sacs, located near the nucleus. The golgi apparatus packages proteins and carbohydrates into membrane-bound vesicles for export from the cell.</div>
<div>LYSOSOME: it is the digestive system ofthe cell. They have digestive enzymes helps in breakdown the waste molecules and also help in detoxification in the cell. It is surrounded by a membrane.</div>
<div>MITOCHONDRIA: is the main energy source of the cell. The mitochondria consists of inner and outer membrane. It converts the energy stored in glucose into ATP (adenosine triphosphate) for the cell.</div>
<div>NUCLEAR MEMBRANE: the membrane that surrounds the nucleus.</div>
<div>NUCLEUS: spherical body containing many organelles, including the nucleolus. The nucleus controls many of the functions of the cell and contains DNA in chromosomes. The nucleus is sorrounded by the nuclear membrane. </div>
<div>NUCLEOLUS: an organelle within the nucleus, it is where ribosomal RNA is produced. Some cells have more than one nucleolus.</div>
<div>RIBOSOME: is the site for protein synthesis where the translation of the RNA takes place. </div>
<div>ROUGH ENDOPLASMATIC RETICULUM: is covered with ribosomes that give it a rough appearance. Rough ER transports materials through the cell and produces proteins in sacks called cisternae (which are sent to the Golgi body, or inserted into the cell membrane)</div>
<div>SMOOTH ENDOPLASMATIC RETICULUM: transports materials through the cell. It contains enzymes and produces and digests lipids (fats) and membrane proteins; smooth endoplasmatic reticulum buds off from rough endoplasmatic reticulum, moving the newly-made proteins and lipids to the Golgi Apparatus, lysosomes, and membranes.</div>
<div>VACUOLES: the vacuole fills with food being digested and waste material that is on its way out of the cell.</div>
<div>MICROVILLI: are microscopic cellular membrane protrusions that increase the surface area of cells and minimize any increase in volume. And are involved in a wide variety of functions, including absorption, secretion and cellular adhesion.</div>
<div>CENTROSOME: small body located near the nucleus. The centrosomes is where microtubules are made. During cell division (mitosis), the centrosome divides and the two parts move to opposite sides of the dividing cell. The centriole is the dense center of the centrosome.</div>
