Cell Analogy: The Krusty Krab

Cell Analogy: The Krusty Krab
By: Tresha Ramcharran & Melody Singleton
This is the outer boundary of the cell. Sort of like the skin. It allows some substances in and keeps others out.
This is where the cell gets its energy. In the human body, food we have digested reacts with oxygen in the mitochondria to make energy for the cell.
Ribosomes are like tiny factories that make different things the cell needs to function, like proteins.
Vacuoles are storage bubbles found in cells.
A cell organelle that serves as recycling and disposal center for the cell.
The definite boundary or wall that is part of the outer structure of certain cells, as a plant cell.
Rough ER (RER) was also mentioned in the section on ribosomes and is very important in the synthesis and packaging of proteins
Endoplasmic Reticulum (Rough)
In the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs is the nucleus of the Krusty Krab - he's the owner and runs everything in restaurant.
The outer boundary of the Krusty Krab is basically just like the cell membrane.
The electricity and gas make the light work and the appliances work so the restaurant run efficiently.
The krabby patties have protein.
Freezer/Refrigerator holds the food for the Krusty Krab.
Squidward cleans up the Krusty Krab.
The Krusty Krab walls makes the build stand up.
Spongebob is the cook who makes krabby patties.
The nuclear membrane or the nuclear envelope, is on the outer part of the cell
The door to Mr. Krabs' office is like a nuclear membrane because it prevents things from coming into and out of his office near him (the nucleus).
Like the cytoplasm, the ocean water fills up the empty space of the Krusty Krab. The cytoplasm fills up all of the empty space in the cell.
Cytoplasm is the fluid that fills a cell.
Spongebob takes food and makes it into Krabby Patties so the customers have food just like a chloroplast captures energy from the sun and makes it into food for the plant.
Chloroplasts are the food producers of the cell.
The walls are the cytoskeleton in the Krusty Krab, because they give the restaraunt support, like the cytoskeleton in a cell gives support the cell and give it it's shape.
The cytoskeleton is a series of intercellular proteins that help a cell with shape, support, and movement
The nucleolus plays a vital role in making proteins in the cell.
In the Krusty Krab, the grill in the kitchen is the protein factory because that where krabby patties (or ribosomes) are made.
Endoplasmic Reticulum (Smooth)
Smooth ER (SER) acts as a storage organelle. It is important in the creation and storage of lipids and steroids.
Bascially, Patrick is the Smooth ER because he did once work at the Krusty Krab.
The Golgi body packages proteins inside the cell before they are sent to their destination
Golgi Body receives, modifies, and ships protein to different locations in/out of cell. Krusty Krab delivery makes food, finds where its going, and takes it there
