Not found in plant cells.
Long whip-like structures which allow the cell to move.
Break down proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids.
Double-membrane bound organelle, and it has its own DNA and ribosomes in the stroma.
They consist of several RNA and protein molecules arranged into two subunits.
Found mainly in plants and protists.
Liquid-filled cavities enclosed by a single membrane.
'Command central' of the cell
Contain grana.
Important organelles of motility.
Contain thylakoids.
Serve as storage bins for food and waste products.
Formed by stack of flattened, folded membranes
Read the messenger RNA copy of the DNA and assemble the appropriate amino acids into protein chains.
Machines that coordinates prothein synthesis.
Contains almost all of the cell's DNA
Powerhouses of the cell
Found only in plants and protists.
Important for freshwater protists to rid their cells of excess water that accumulates because of salt imbalance with the environment.
Acts as the 'post office of the cell'
Membrane-bound organelles that contain digestive enzymes.
'Mighty mitos'
Powered by molecular motors of kinesin and dynein molecules.
Houses nucleoli
Here proteins from the ribosomes are stored, chemically modified, 'addressed' with carbohydrate tags.
Paired organelles with nine sets of microtubule triplets in cross section.
Both contain a 9+2 arrangement of microtubules in cross section.
Double-membrane-bound organelles that are the site of respiration
Here proteins from the ribosomes are packaged in vesicles for delivery.
In eukaryotes, surrounded by a selectively-permeable nuclear envelope.
Contains green pigment chlorophyll.
A network of tube-like membranes continues with the nuclear envelope.
The site of photosynthesis.
Important in processing the contents of vesicles taken in from outside the cell.
In this organelle, proteins undergo modifications and folding to yield the final, functional protein structures.
Double-membrane-bound organelles that are the site of oxidative phosphorylation
Short hair-like projections which allow the cell to move.
Important in organizing the microtubule spindle needed to move the chromosomes during mitosis.
Produce energy for the cell in the form of ATP
The inner membrane of this organelle forms folds called cristae, which are suspended in a fluid called the matrix.
Coordinates protein translation.
Comes in rough and smooth varieties.
