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