Transcript of Cell Analogy Restaurant

A Cell Is Like A Restaurant The nucleus of a cell is similar to a chef in a restaurant. A nucleus serves as the control center of a cell similar to a brain in the human body. In a restaurant, the chef is the one in control. He/she dictates exactly what to food to make and how to make it. In a Restaurant, the cell wall relates to the walls of the restaurant.

Both the cell wall and the walls of the restaurant give the object structure and create a barrier. The Nucleus Cytoplasm In a cell the cytoplasm relates to the seating area, and the area in the kitchen. A cells cytoplasm is the area that contains all of the organelles. In a restaurant, a seating area contains all of the tables and the kitchen contains all of the food, cooking tools and the fridge. Chromatin The chromatin in a cell is very similar to the cookbook in a restaurant. In a cell, the chromatin carries the genetic information of the cell allowing it to produce more protein. A cookbook carries the recipes needed to continue producing food. Vacuole A vacuole in a cell is very
similar to a fridge in a
restaurant. Vacuoles are used
for storing food that the cell
takes in. A refrigerator also
stores food that the customers
will eventually eat. ER The Endoplasmic Reticulum is a pathway
where lipids, proteins and other components
of the cell are assembled.

The kitchen counter tops/tables is where all the
different components of the meal are put
together/assembled Cytoskeleton The cytoskeleton gives the cell shape and internal organization. In a restaurant, the waiters and waitresses give the job structure and
internal organization. The waiters must be organized. Nucleolus The nucleolus creates ribosomal RNA
which will eventually become part
of ribosomes and help produce protein.

The chefs brain contains valuable recipes
needed for creating food for the customers Cell Wall Cell Membrane The cell membrane determines what goes in and out of the cell. The only way for any molecule to get inside the cell is through this organelle.

A door is the only way into the restaurant, and it sees everything that goes in and out Mitochondrion Mitochondrion converts chemical
energy stored in food to compounds
that are more convenient for the cell
to use.

This relates to a line of cooks in a
restaurant because they convert
ingredients into meals convenient
for the customers to eat. Chloroplasts Chloroplasts capture the energy from
the sun and convert it into food for the cell.

A solar panel converts energy from the sun into electricity.

In both situations energy from the sun is being converted into things that benefit the cell or restaurant. Cilia Cilia enables cells to swim and
move quickly through liquid.

At a restaurant, valet parking allows
a car to move quickly through the
parking lot. Golgi Apparatus In a cell, the Golgi Apparatus modifies sorts
and packages proteins and other materials for

In a restaurant, take out boxes package food
for storage in a customers fridge. Ribosomes Ribosomes assemble and produce
proteins by following coded instructions
that come from the DNA. The kitchen
facilitator takes instructions from the chef
to put the meals together properly
