Cell Analogy: Hospital
Transcript of Cell Analogy: Hospital
The cell wall maintains the shape of the cell and protects it from injuries similar to how the hospital building protects the patients from harmful objects.
Cytoplasm is the fluid that maintains the internal pressure to prevent the cell from shrinking.
The air conditioner/ heater helps the hospital maintain the appropriate temperature for the patients to
golgi bodies: Nurses
Golgi bodies receive proteins from the ER and distribute it to other parts of the cell.
Nurses receive patients from stretchers and then distribute them to a specific room in the hospital (i.e., delivery room)
Ribosomes and the cafeteria create proteins/ food for the cells and patients.
Cell membrane: hospital doors
The cell membrane controls what goes in and out of the cell similar to the doors of the hospital controlling who goes in and out.
Endoplasmic reticulum: stretchers
The endoplasmic reticulum is similar to stretchers because they are both transport systems. In cells, they transport ions and molecules, but patients in hospitals.
cytoplasm: Air conditioner/ heater
Chloroplasts: Solar panels
Chloroplast uses sunlight to make energy for the cell similar to how solar panels uses sunlight to produce electricity for the hospital.
Chromosome: Hospital records
Chromosomes carries information that helps a cell grow.
The hospital records carry information of patients that can be used to aid them (i.e., avoiding their allergens)
Proteins are received from the endoplasmic reticulum and then distributed to other parts of the cell
Patients are transported to other parts of the hospital through nurses.
DNa: hard drive on computers
DNA contains the genetic information. The hard drive of hospital computers contain the information of the patients and doctors.
Rna: Paper copy
RNA is the copy of DNA so it would be a paper copy of the files on the hard drive on computers.
Lysosomes breaks down and gets rid of waste just like how the janitor removes waste from the hospital.
Vacuole: supply room
Vacuole stores water and nutrients in the cell similar to how the supply room stores the necessity for a hospital to function.
Nuclear membrane: Doctors Lounge
The nuclear membrane isolates the nucleus from the cytoplasm similar to how the lounge isolates the doctors from everyone else.
The nucleus directs cell activity & holds the DNA. The doctors direct the nurses' activities, operations, and holds information.
The mitochondria produces ATP (energy) to fuel the cell's actions. A laboratory can produce vaccine used to cure patients.

The nucleolus makes ribosomes (the cafeteria) so the chefs makes the food that is served in the cafeteria.
