Topic 2A - Cell Structure and Division

  1. Which four type of cell are all Eukaryotic?
    Animal, plant, algal and fungal
  2. What is the function of a cell-surface membrane?
    Regulate the movement of substances into and out of the cell. Also has receptor molecules on the surface which allow it to respond to chemicals like hormones
  3. What is the function of a nucleus?
    Control's cells activities. The pores allow substances to move between the nucleus and cytoplasm
  4. What is the function of mitochondria?
    Site of aerobic respiration. Aerobic respiration then produces ATP for cell activity.
  5. What is the function of Chloroplasts?
    Site of photosynthesis. Produces carbohydrates, starch, glucose and sugars
  6. What is the function of a Golgi apparatus?
    • Processes and packages new lipids and proteins. Also makes lysosomes
  7. What is the function of a Golgi vesicle?
    Stores lipids and proteins and transports them out of the cell via the cell-surface membrane
  8. What is the function of a Lysosome?
    Contains digestive enzymes which can be used to digest invading cells.
  9. What is the function of a Ribosome?
    Site where proteins are made
  10. What is the function of the RER?
    Folds and processes proteins that have been made at the ribosomes
  11. What is the function of the SER?
    Synthesises and processes lipids
  12. What is the function of the cell wall?
    Supports cells and prevents them from changing shape
  13. What is the function of the Cell Vacuole (plants)?
    Helps to maintain pressure inside the cell and keep the cell rigid.
