|Cell Membrane||Lipid bilayer that separates the cell from the outside environment Controls what enters and leaves the cell|
|Cytoplasm||Area inside the cell between the cell membrane and nucleus|
|Cytoskeleton||Network of protein fibers that helps cells maintain their shape and helps cells move|
|Nucleus||Control center of the cell and contains the cell's DNA|
|Smooth ER||Makes lipids and steroids|
|Rough ER||Contains ribosomes, secretes proteins Membrane factory for the cell|
|Mitochondria||Powerhouse of the cell Produces ATP through cellular respiration|
|Chloroplast||Site of photosynthesis|
|Golgi Apparatus||Modifies and packages proteins|
|Lysosome||Digests unwanted materials|
|Vacuole||Stores water and nutrients|
|Vesicle||Transports materials into, out of, and around the cell|
|Ribosome||Site of protein synthesis|
|Peroxisome||Contains enzymes that transfer hydrogen to oxygen, producing hydrogen peroxide. Also breaks down the hydrogen peroxide|
|Cell Wall||Rigid wall that surrounds the cell membrane Plant cells only!|
|Centrosome||Microtubule organizing center, important during cell division|
|Cilia||Hair like structures that help movement|
|Flagella||Tail that helps movement|
