Cell Analogy Cell Wall Walls of the Restraunt Miranda Fischer The walls of the restraint are like the cell wall in the cell. The cell wall protects the cell and the walls of the restraint protect the restaurant. Creating a barrier, the cell wall separates the cell from its external environment. The walls of restaurant do the same thing. They separate it from outside and keep the weather and environment out. The cell wall and the walls of the restaurant both serve as a form of protection. Cell Membrane Lock on Doors The cell membrane and the locks on the doors and security system have the same function. The cell membrane controls movement of materials going in and out of the cell. It also creates a barrier between the cell and its external environment, because of its control of what is going in and out. The locks on the door control if people can come in or out of Red Robin. When it is closed the doors are locked and when it is open the doors are unlocked. The security system watches the restaurant to see what is trying to come in or out as well. They both control what can enter or exit. The cell wall and walls and security system of the restaurant protect them from what’s outside. Nucleus Boss The nucleus and the boss are very similar. They both have control and power. The nucleus is the “headquarters” of the cell and controls cell activities. The boss controls the restaurant everything that happens inside it. For example, what’s going to be on the menu that day or who will be working is decided by the boss. The activities of the cell and Red Robin are controlled by its boss or nucleus. They are what allow the whole thing to function. Nuclear Membrane The Boss' Office The boss’s office is a perfect comparison to the nuclear membrane. The nuclear membrane controls what can go in or out of the nucleus. The boss’s office controls who and what can come in contact with the boss. The door on the office, determines when people can see or talk to the boss. The boss’s office and the nuclear membrane both control movement in and out of their “control center”. They protect their nucleus and boss from what is outside of it. Nucleolus Chef Chromatin Menu The chromatin is like a menu in the restaurant. The chromatin has important genetic information in it and the menu has the most popular meals on it. The meals on the menu are like the DNA in the chromatin. They both have information about what is inside the cell and meals. Chromatin and the menus both serve as the information providers. Cytoplasm Tables The cytoplasm and the tables are an excellent Vacuole Fridge and Pantry The vacuole and the fridge and pantry have the same function. The vacuole stores food, water and waste inside the cell. The pantry and fridge store the ingredients needed to make the food for Red Robin. They both store important necessities. The pantry and fridge and the vacuole act as storage for the cell and restaurant. Ribosome Kitchen The ribosomes are like the kitchen in Red Robin. In a cell, the ribosomes synthesize proteins. Proteins are what the cell produces and Red Robin produces food. The kitchen is where the food is made and put together. They both produce the final product. The ribosomes and kitchen perform the same function. Endoplasmic Reticulum Waiters The endoplasmic reticulum and
the waiters are a perfect functional match. The endoplasmic reticulum carries materials throughout the cell. The waiters carry food throughout the restaurant. They carry food from the kitchen to different parts of the restaurant to people sitting at the tables. The endoplasmic reticulum
and waiters have very important functions. They serve as
transporters in the cell and restaurant. Golgi Body Final Touches on Plate The Golgi body of the cell is similar to the final touches on the plate. The Golgi body modifies proteins made by the cell. In Red Robin, they add lettuce and steak fries as finishing touches on the plate to the burgers and meals. They both modify the food and protein. The Golgi body and final touches are modifiers. Lysosome Customers The lysosomes are a perfect comparison to the costumers. Lysosomes break down food molecules in the cell and digest them. The costumers do exactly this too. They eat the food from the restaurant and digest it. The lysosomes and costumers are consumers. They both eat and digest the food. Chloroplast Lights The chloroplast and the lights are very similar. Chloroplast uses light to make energy through photosynthesis in a plant cell. The lights in a Red Robin use energy to power up the Chromosomes Recipes Chromosomes and recipes are a lot alike. Chromosomes contain the hereditary information in a cell. The recipes are the instructions and directions for making food. They both contain information needed to reproduce. The chromosomes have information to reproduce the cell, and the recipes have the information needed to remake the food. Cytoskelton Aisles The cytoskeleton has the same function as the aisles. Organelles move within the cell through the cytoskeleton. In Red Robin, the aisles allow people to move within the restaurant. They are both a form of pathways. The aisles and cytoskeleton allow things to be transported throughout the cell and restaurant. Plastid Condiment Station The plastid and the condiment station are a great match functionally. The plastid stores important chemicals needed in the cell. The condiment station has all the important condiments needed for each meal. They both add substances to the meal or cell. The plastid and condiment station both contain important chemicals needed. Mitochondria Oven The mitochondria are very similar to an oven. The mitochondria release energy and are the “power house” of the cell. It releases energy to different parts of the cell so they can conduct their functions that need energy. The oven is needed in the restaurant to cook the food or burgers. It releases energy and heat to cook the food. The mitochondria and the oven both release energy to power the cell and restaurant. They are the “power houses.” Cilia Bus Boy Flagella Manager The flagella and the manager have the same function. In a cell, there are very few flagella, but they have an important job. They control and allow movement. The manager keeps the restaurant moving along. There are also few managers in one restaurant. Both the flagella and the manager keep the cell and restaurant in motion. They allow their system to move along. Conclusion Red Robin Cell Analogy Red Robin is a perfect comparison to a cell. Each part of the restaurant has its own function in order for the restaurant to work as a whole. Each small job contributes to the restaurant making food. A cell works the same way. Each part has its own function and job so the cell will function. Red Robin and a cell are very similar in this way. The nucleolus has the same Centriole Sections in the Restraunt The centriole is very similar in function to the sections in Red Robin. The centrioles separate the chromosomes pairs for cell division. The sections in Red Robin, divide the restaurant into small sections. The centriole and sections of the restaurant separate. They serve as the separators and dividers. I compared Red Robin to a cell. I chose this because I thought comparing a cell to a restraint would be interesting. Red Robin is also one of my favorite restraints. A cell produces proteins and Red Robin makes burgers and food. Red Robin and a cell were very similar in the functions they had, making it a great comparison. Nucleus function as the chef. The nucleolus makes ribosomes for the cell. Likewise, the chef makes all the food for the restaurant. Everything people order at Red Robin is made by its chef. They both make something very important for the overall functioning of the cell or restaurant. They create what is needed. comparison. In a cell, the cytoplasm protects and supports the cell’s organelles by filling up the cell. In Red Robin, the tables fill up the restaurant with costumers. The tables and cytoplasm fill up the restaurant and cell. They are fillers and supporters. restaurant and bring it to life. The restaurant starts working and using energy when the lights come on. They both use light and energy. The chloroplast and lights power up the cell and restaurant. The cilia are very similar to a bus boy in Red Robin. There
are many cilia in a cell and they allow liquid to pass through the cell. The bus boys clean the tables so more people can be seated. There are always many bus boys in one restaurant. The cilia allow movement and the bus boy keeps the restaurant going by allowing more costumers to move in. Keeping the cell and restaurant “moving along” is the main jobs of the cilia and bus boys.
