Cell Notes For 7th Grade Science

Structure Function
1.Cell Wall animal cells don't have one
Plants:made of cellulose
Gives strength ,structure, & rigidity to plant thru Tugor Pressure
2.Cell Membrane Outside covering
determines what goes in/out cells
Flexible, but supports cells
3.Vacuole Storage unit in cells that hold water
Large in plant, small in animal cells
4.Nucleus Control center of cell
Houses DNA
Controls cell growth and makes ribosome
5.Lysosome Contains digestive enzymes to break things down in cells
6.Mitochondria "Power House Of The Cell"
Produces energy (breaks down glucose)
C6H12O6+O2 –> CO2+H20+Energy
7.Cytoplasm Gelatinous, semi-transparent fluids that fills the cells
Organelles are suspended in Cytoplasm
8.Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum Covered in ribosome, stores proteins
9.Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (no ribosome) transport cell products
10.Ribosome Site of Protein Synthesis
11.Golgi Body Package cell products for transport (like UPS)
12.Chloroplast Site of Photosynthesis:captures radiant energy and converts it to chemical energy (c6h12o6)
Has Chlorophyll-green pigment that absorbs light
