The site of photosynthesis.
Important in organizing the microtubule spindle needed to move the chromosomes during mitosis.
Found only in plants and protists.
Short hair-like projections which allow the cell to move.
They consist of several RNA and protein molecules arranged into two subunits.
Read the messenger RNA copy of the DNA and assemble the appropriate amino acids into protein chains.
Formed by stack of flattened, folded membranes
Acts as the 'post office of the cell'
'Command central' of the cell
Important in processing the contents of vesicles taken in from outside the cell.
Important for freshwater protists to rid their cells of excess water that accumulates because of salt imbalance with the environment.
Long whip-like structures which allow the cell to move.
Here proteins from the ribosomes are stored, chemically modified, 'addressed' with carbohydrate tags.
A network of tube-like membranes continues with the nuclear envelope.
Both contain a 9+2 arrangement of microtubules in cross section.

In eukaryotes, surrounded by a selectively-permeable nuclear envelope.
Powered by molecular motors of kinesin and dynein molecules.
Serve as storage bins for food and waste products.
Coordinates protein translation.
Double-membrane-bound organelles that are the site of respiration

Powerhouses of the cell
Break down proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids.
Here proteins from the ribosomes are packaged in vesicles for delivery.
In this organelle, proteins undergo modifications and folding to yield the final, functional protein structures.
Important organelles of motility.
Liquid-filled cavities enclosed by a single membrane.
