Cell organelles

  1. What is the function of the cell wall?
    A cell wall is the layer that surrounds a certain cell, gives the cell a definite shape and structure
  2. What is the function of Endoplasmic Reticulum
    • smooth: The functions of the Endoplasmic is It synthesizes lipids, phospholipids, and steroids involved in processing transporting and storage of materials.
    • rough: The endoplasmic reticulum (rough) is responsible for the assembly of many proteins.
  3. what is the function of golgi complex?
    A major function is the modifying, sorting and packaging of proteins for secretion.
  4. what is the function of the nucleus?
    It controls the heredity characteristics of an organism. DNA tells the cell what proteins need to be producedIt is responsible for protein synthesis, cell division, growth and differentiation. Stores heredity material in the form of deoxy-ribonucleic acid (DNA) strands.
  5. what is the function of mitocondria?
    The main job of mitochondria is to perform cellular respiration.
  6. what is the function of cytoskeleton?
    It is the frame that gives shape to a cell, it forms a framework for the movement of organelles around the cytoplasm
  7. what is the function of chloroplasts?
    Chloroplasts work to convert light energy of the Sun into sugars that can be used by cells. The entire process is called photosynthesis
  8. what is the function of Peroxisomes?
    Only found in eukaryotic cells. Their main function is to break down toxic materials inside of the cell.
  9. what is the function of the Vacuole?
    Membrane-bound liquid filled space found in most cells in variable numbers.
  10. what is the function of Lysosomes?
    The main function of lysosomes is to break down/digest carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids.
  11. what is the function of Ribosomes?
    The ribosomes function is to make proteins by joining amino acids together
  12. what is the function of Flagella and Cilia?
    Their function is to move liquid past the surface of the cell.
