Transcript of Organelles!
Makes DNA available when needed
Holds genetic information in the form of DNA (genes)
Proteins, Nucleic Acids, Minerals, Ions
Jellylike substance that has dissolved molecular building blocks
Proteins that can change to meet the needs of the cell.
Folded to accommodate space for all processes
Endoplasmic Reticulum* (ER)
Network of folded membranes; produces proteins and lipids.
Jack Black on the Nucelus
Link amino acids to form proteins.
Some proteins stay in here in storage. Some go out to other organelles and some go to the cell membrane to leave the cell
Proteins from the ER move here. Stacks of membranes process, sort and deliver proteins.
Inner membrane chemically converts molecules from food to energy
Where we meet our friend ATP
Supply energy to the cell. It is bean shaped with 2 membranes.
Forms a boundary between cell and the outside environment
Contains enzymes. Defends the cell from invading bacteria and viruses. Breaks down damaged or worn out cell parts.
Why is the ER all folded up?
Fluid filled sac.
*Attach to DNA and help with cell division
Found in PLANT cells
Aid in photosynthesis
Give plants their green color!
