Biology Cells Q-Cards

  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, protection against infection and mechanical stres, separates interior of the cell from the outer environment.
  2. what is the Endoplasmic Reticulums function?
    The functions of the Endoplasmic is It synthesizes lipids, phospholipids, and steroids involved in processing transporting and storage of materials. Always next to nucleus
  3. What is the Golgi Complex function?
    Function The job of the Golgi apparatus is to process and bundle macromolecules like proteins and lipids as they are synthesized within the cell. Prepares and packages proteins, from vesicles to transport proteins out of the cell.
  4. What is the Nucleus's function
    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.Also stores proteins and ribonucleic acid (RNA) in the nucleolus. some cells have only one nuclei, some have many nuclei.
  5. The Mitochondria's function?
    The main job of mitochondria is to perform cellular respiration. This means it takes in nutrients from the cell, breaks it down, and turns it into energy. This energy (ATP: ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE) is then in turn used by the cell to carry out various functions. Eg muscle cells and cells of the kidney tubule. Has an outer membrane.
  6. What is Cytoskeleton Function?
    t is the frame that gives shape to a cell, it forms a framework for the movement of organelles around the cytoplasm - most of the organelles are attached
  7. What is the function of Chloroplast?
    Chloroplasts work to convert light energy of the Sun into sugars that can be used by cells. The entire process is called photosynthesis and it all depends on the little green chlorophyll molecules in each chloroplast.
  8. What is the function of Peroxisomes?
    Besides breaking down toxins, they also assist in lipid (insoluble in water & soluble in alcohol) metabolism and oxidation reactions that break down fatty and amino acids.
  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. Lysosomes also repair the cell membrane and breaks-down/responds against foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses and other antigens.
  11. What is the function of Ribosomes?
    he ribosomes function is to make proteins by joining amino acids together (translating messenger RNA).
  12. What is the function of Flagella and Cilia?
    Their function is to move liquid past the surface of the cell.
