Transcript of Car - Cell Analogy

By Johan Pereira and Stephen Shamgochian Cells are like Cars. Chromosomes Ribosome Endoplamic Reticulum Cytoplasm The Driver of the car is like the Nucleus because the driver controls the functions of the car like how the Nucleus controls the functions of the cell. The Nucleolus is like the gas tank
If the gas of a car is like the Ribosomes of a cell
Then the Nucleolus would be the gas tank that holds gas until it is needed.
Nucleolus helps produce and assemble ribosomes when needed
Gas tank recieves gas and supplies gas when needed.
The ribosome of a cell is like the fuel of a car

Ribosomes produce proteins and their wouldn't be cells without them.
The fuel of a car helps produce power and cars wouldn't be without them. Endoplasmic Reticulums are like the tubes and wires inside a car

The Endoplasmic Reticulum carries ribosomes and prepares exports for the cell
Tubes and wire inside the car transport fuel and directs the exhaust out the car The Cytoplasm in a cell is like the seats and everything else inside the car.

Cytoplasm fills the rest of the cell, and helps support the cell.
In a car, the seats and all the other structures and furnishings inside of it function to fll and support the car (and the ones in too). The Nucleus Cell Membrane Background Image Source :

Cell membranes act as the boundary between the cell and environment
Car doors act as the boundary between the cell and the environment. http://biology.clc.uc.edu/graphics/bio104/cell.jpg http://www.blogcdn.com/www.autoblog.com/media/2012/09/2012-tesla-model-s-fd.jpg http://files.vector-images.com/clipart/driver4.gif Nucleous Mitochondria The engine of the car is like the mitochondria of the cell.
Mitochondria powers the cell
Engines power cars Golgi Apparatus The transmission of the car is like the golgi apparatus of the cell
The Golgi Apparatus sorts the products being made and transports it to different areas.
The transmission of the car sorts the power and distributes it to the wheels. Cytoskeleton The Cytoskeleton of a cell is like the Chassis of a car in that they both hold the structure of the overall object. Cytoskeleton holds the structure of a cell while the Chassis of a car holds the structure of the car. Lysosome The lysosome is like the catalytic converter of the car
Lysosomes break down the waste in the cells
Catalytic converters break down the fumes that comes from cars The Chromosomes of a cell are like the ECU of a car.
They both contain essential information
Car: VIN, Programming
Cell: Genetic Information http://www.uvm.edu/~inquiryb/webquest/fa06/mvogenbe/Animal-Cell.jpg http://www.carsimg.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/gull-wing-benz-antique-benz-car-doors-german.jpg http://www.campbellfieldradiators.com.au/images/images/gastank1.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9QNTRJ0grzI/T0VB0B11GzI/AAAAAAAAAGs/TYvASY5nA8k/s1600/gaspump2.jpg http://image.highperformancepontiac.com/f/15349601+w750+st0/hppp_0906_11_z+chassis_guide+maxg_muscle_car_chassis.jpg http://www.samarins.com/check/automatic_transmission.jpg http://site.hamotorsports.com/ecu10.jpg http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad229/CheapZX5/e9614299.jpg http://dev.nsta.org/evwebs/3368/images/catconverter.gif http://www.yieldinsider.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Car-Engine-1.jpg http://atozrockz.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/b7b3b_Car_Interior_112_0702_02z+jaguar_cxf_concept_car+interior_view.jpg
