Transcript of Animal cell compared with a computer

Animal Cell In Comparison To A Computer They are very alike Nucleus vs Processor Nucleus The nucleus controls the cells activities The nucleus' main function is to control the cell's activities. Processor The processor controls all the processes in the computer provided by software. Cell Membrane vs Firewall Cell Membrane The cell membrane protects the cell from its surroundings (Selectively Permeable Controlling what gets in and out of the cell) Firewall A firewall is used to keep a network safe from an external source like the internet by analyzing packets of data and deciding if they should be let through or not Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum vs Folders Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum The smooth ER acts as a storage organelle, The smooth ER is important in the creation and storage of steroids and can also store ions Folder The Folders inside a computer store things such as data. Folder are also used to organize and make everything look good. Mitochondria vs Power Supply Mitochondria The mitochondria creates most of the energy the cell uses by converting nutrients into energy. The process of creating cell energy is called cellular respiration Power Supply The power supply converts AC to low voltage DC and supplies it throughout the computer. Cytoplasm vs Screen Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is a gel-like substance inside the cell suspending all the cells organelles (making them look like they are floating) Screen The screen shows you what is on your computer and holds it all in front of you. (Making it look like its also floating) Vacuole vs Hard Drive Vacuole The vacuole stores food, water, and sometimes waste. Hard Drive The hard drive stores computer data and infomation Lysosomes vs Recycling Bin Lysosomes The purpose of the lysosome is to digest (Dissolve) cellular debris and food Recycling Bin The recycling bin gets rid of things by deleting them off your hard drive Golgi Golgi Body vs Email Golgi Body The golgi body (also called golgi apperatus, golgi complex and golgi) The main function of the golgi body is to package and send proteins to different parts of the cell Email Email is a way of sending things over the internet from one computer to another computer. Rough ER vs Cables/Wires Rough ER The rough ER is very important in the synthesis and packaging of proteins it also sends protein around the cell. The ribosomes are attached to the membrane of the rough ER. Ribosomes vs Cache Ribosomes Ribosomes are the protein builders or protein synthesizers of the cell. Ribosomes create proteins by combining amino acids together in the right order. Flagellum vs Mouse Flagellum The flagellum is primarily used by the cell for movement but can also be used as a sensory organelle. Mouse The mouse moves the cursor on your computer screen and lets you navigate your computer. Cache The cache combines all the data together before it is stored and takes some data and stores it in the cache. Cables The cable/wires in the computer are used to send data and power throughout the computer.
