|Cell Parts||Job within the Cell|
|cell membrane||layer of protein and fat around the cell. allows necessary substances to pass into the cell|
|centrosome||located near the nucleus; where microtubules are made. In mitosis, it divides.|
|cytoplasm||material around the nucleus ; location of organelles|
|Golgi Body||an organelle near the nucleus that puts proteins and carbs into "packages" for removal from the cell|
|lysosome||organelles with a membrane and digestive enzymes; responsible for digestion of nutrients|
|mitochondrion||converts glucose into ATP (adenosine triphosphate)|
|nuclear membrane||protective membrane around the nucleus|
|nucleolus||an organelle of the nucleus; produces ribosomal RNA|
|nucleus||controls the functions of the cell and contains DNA|
|ribosome||home of cytoplasmic granules; where protein synthesis happens.|
|rough endoplasmic reticulum||"rough" in appearance because it is covered with ribosomes; protein production; moves materials through the cell|
|smooth endoplasmic reticulum||moves materials throughout the cell; its enzymes digest lipids and proteins|
|vacuole||cavities filled with fluid inside a cell. contains digesting foods and waste that is moving out of the cell|
