plant cell
<div>PEROXISOMES: are single membrane bound organelle that contain oxidative enzymes that are digestive in function. They help in digesting long chains of fatty acids and amino acids and help in synthesis of cholesterol.</div>
<div>CYTOSKELETON: It is the network of microtubules and microfilament fibres. They give structural support and maintain the shape of the cell.</div>
<div>CHLOROPLAST: are the most important plastids found in plant cells. It is the structure in a green plant cell in which photosynthesis occurs. The chloroplasts take part in the process of photosynthesis and it is of great biological importance.</div>
<div>PLASMODESMATA: The plasmodesmata consist of pores, or channels, lying between individual plant cells, and connect the symplastic space in the plant. They can also be termed as bridges between two plant cells. The plasmodesmata separate the outer cell membranes of the plant cells.</div>
<div>MITOCHONDRIA: is the main energy source of the cell. Consists of inner and outer membrane. The mitochondria converts the energy stored in glucose into ATP for a cell.</div>
<div>NUCLEUS: The nucleus controls many of the functions of the cell and contains DNA in chromosomes. The nucleus is surrounded by the nuclear membrane.</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>
<div>GOLGI APPARATUS: are flattened stacks of membrane-bound sacs. It produces the membranes that surround the lysosomes. The Golgi body packages proteins and carbohydrates into membrane-bound vesicles for export from the cell.</div>
<div>CELL WALL: the thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the cell. The cell membrane is semipermeable, allowing some substances to pass into the cell and blocking others.</div>
<div>NUCLEOLUS: an organelle within the nucleus, it is where ribosomal RNA is produced. Some cells have more than one nucleolus.</div>
<div>NUCLEAR MEMBRANE: the membrane that surrounds the nucleus.</div>
<div>VACUOLES: They are bound by single membrane and small organelles. In many organisms vacuoles are storage organelles. </div>
<div>RIBOSOMES: is the site for protein synthesis where the translation of the RNA takes place. Ribosomes are found freely suspended in the cytoplasm and also are attached to the endoplasmic reticulum.</div>
<div>ROUGH ENDOPLASMATIC RETICULUM: is covered with ribosomes that give it a rough appearance. Rough endoplasmatic reticulum transports materials through the cell and produces proteins in sacks called cisternae (which are sent to the Golgi Apparatus, 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 retiuculum, moving the newly-made proteins and lipids to the Golgi Apparatus, lysosomes, and membranes.</div>
<div>MICROFILAMENTS: are the thinnest filaments of the cytoskeleton and are found in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells.</div>
<div>INTERMEDIATE FILAMENTS: they provide support for the cell so that other microfilaments can more readily do their transport jobs.</div>
<div>MICROTUBULES: whose main function is to help support and give shape to the cell.</div>
<div>PLASMA MEMBRANE: it protects the cell from its surroundings</div>
