Transcript of Amusement Park: Animal Cell

A small dense spherical structure in the nucleus of a cell during interphase that contains the DNA
The nucleolus can be represented in Disney World by the computers at the information desk because they include the important information and are located in the "nucleus".

Lysosomes are the "stomach" of the cell. They contain acid hydrolase enzymes that break down waste and debris.
This relates to the trashcans at Disney World. After people eat their food, they throw it in the trashcan. After that, the trash is taken to a dump and the waste is broken down just like it would in a lysosome.
The Nucleus of a cell is where all the information regarding the cell is stored.
The nucleus is like the information desks at Disney World. This is where all the information that has to do with the park is stored.
Golgi Apparatus

The Golgi Apparatus is a stack of folded membranes within the cytoplasm that processes, sorts, and delivers proteins
In Disney World, the gift shop represents the Golgi apparatus because people can buy souvenirs and take them home with them. Just how the folded membranes are stacked and delivered.
Rough ER

The rough ER is a series of folded membranes that provide a transport system between the nucleus and cytoplasm.
In Disney World this is represented by the buses of disney that transport people to different areas in the park
The chromatin is the material of which the chromosomes of organisms are composed. It contains DNA and proteins inside of chromosomes.
The DNA ONLY folds into chromosomes if the cell divides during cell division
In Disney, this would be represented by all the materials used to build the rides because that is what the rides are composed of.
Nuclear Membrane
Surrounds the genetic material and the nucleolus in eukaryotic cells and provides a physical barrier between the cytosol and the nuclear contents.
The gates in front of the attractions at Disney act as nuclear membranes because they protect the parts that make up the park (the attractions) and provide physical barriers to keep out what isn't supposed to be in there.
Cell Membrane
Controls what substances are allowed to go in and out of cells and protects the cell from viruses, bacteria, and other unwanted materials trying to enter
The finger/card scanners at Disney World act as cell membranes because they regulate who can come in and out of the rides and the park in general.
Mitochondria produce the enery for the cell. They make and store ATP to be used in other processes.
In Disney World, the restaurants in the parks act as mitochondria because they provide and store food for the people to eat just like the mitchondria provides and stores ATP for the cell to use.
Found 'free' in cytoplasm or bound to endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to form rough ER
Take part in protein synthesis and link amino acids together to make proteins
Disney characters are like ribosomes because they roam the park taking pictures with tourist or are bound to their designated rides or photo booths like on rough ER. they also are the key elements that tie the parade together, just like in making proteins
Slender hair-like extensions of the cell membrane that can form cilia or help absorb more nutrients to help the cell grow and develop
In Disney World the visitors are like microvilli because they are the ones that buy all the tickets and merchendise that give the park the money to "grow and develop" by updating and improving the park.
The smallest and narrowest of the the three main protein fibers whose function is to aid in cellular movement and enable the cells to move and divide
The levers and switches used to start a ride at Disney World act like microfilaments because, although they are small, they aid in getting the rides going and running
One of the main protein fibers, they give the cell its shape and move vesicles, granules, and other organelles throughout the cell
The conveyor belts under the roller coasters that help pull the carts up the track act as microtubules because they move the "parts" of the coaster to where they need to be for other "processes" (like careening down the hill) to take place.
Smooth ER
The smooth ER synthezise lipids and break down carbohydrates.
In Disney world this is represented by the different paths thats people can follow and makes and creates a way for them to go from one place to another just like when the smooth ER synthezises lipids.
The centrosome is an organelle near the nucleus of a cell that contains the centrioles and from which the spindle fibers develop in cell division.
This can be represented the park itself. Once a person has passed the information desk (the nucleus), they are able to develop the knowledge needed to seperate or divide from others and roam the park on their own.
It is the breakdown of the very long chains of fatty acids through beta-oxidation.
In Disney World, the very long (& sometimes very boring) tours are broken down into sections such as the Animal Kingdom tour, Cinderella's castle, and many others.
Thanks for listening and always remenber not to be hungry while pooping!
The flagellum is a tail-like appendage serving as an organ of locomotion.
This organelle can be represented by the set up poles that you stand between when waiting for a ride. They allow the lines to move quickly in a more organized way.
