Cell Restaurant Analogy
Transcript of Cell Restaurant Analogy
The Cell Membrane is Like the Door
The cell membrane is like the door of the restaurant because the door allows people to go in and out of the restaurant in the same way the cell membrane controls the passage of materials in and out of the cell.
The Nucleus is Like the Manager
The nucleus is like the manager of the restaurant because the manager controls the rest of the staff in the same way the nucleus controls the genetic information (DNA) and is the control center of the cell.
The Ribosomes are Like the Chefs
The ribosomes are like the chefs of the restaurant because the chefs produce food for the patrons of the restaurant in the same way that the ribosomes link amino acids to form proteins in the cell.
The Endoplasmic Reticulum is Like the Kitchen
The endoplasmic reticulum is like the kitchen in the restaurant because the kitchen is where food is produced and cooked in the same way that the endoplasmic reticulum helps in the assembly of proteins.
The Cytoplasm is Like the Dining Room
The cytoplasm is like the dining room of the restaurant because the dining room allows the customers and other staff to move around and have space to sit in the same way that the cytoplasm allows molecules to move around the cell.
The Golgi Apparatus is Like the Waiters
The Golgi Apparatus is like the waiters of the restaurant because the waiters put in the order for a dish, receive it, and then carry it out from the kitchen to deliver it to the customer in the same way that the Golgi Apparatus processes, sorts, and delivers proteins in the cell.
The Lysosome is like the Janitor
The lysosome is like the janitor of the restaurant because the janitor cleans up messes and throws away trash in the same way that lysosome rids the cell of unwanted material.
The Cytoskeleton is Like the Building
The cytoskeleton is like the building of the restaurant because the building gives shape and structure to the restaurant in the same way that the cytoskeleton supports and gives structure to the cell.
The Vacuole is like the Fridge
The vacuole is like the fridge in the restaurant because the fridge stores food to be used later in the same way that the vacuole stores materials such as water and salts needed by the cell.
The Chloroplast is like the Solar Panels
The chloroplast is like the solar panels on the roof of the restaurant because the solar panels convert the sun's energy into energy to be used by electrical appliances in the restaurant in the same way that the chloroplast carries out photosynthesis by converting sunlight into ATP, or glucose used for energy for the plant cell.
The Nucleolus is Like Training
The nucleolus is like the previous training of the chefs in the restaurant because the chefs' knowledge of how to cook food was gained through training in the same way that ribosomes are assembled and made ready in the nucleolus.
DNA is Like the Recipes
DNA is like the recipes of the dishes in the restaurant because the recipes contain instructions on how to cook certain dishes in the same way that DNA contains genes that are the instructions for making proteins in the cell.
Proteins are Like the Food
Proteins are like the food served in the restaurant because serving food is the main point and function of the restaurant in the same way that the proteins are the job of the cell and carry out many critical functions.
The Mitochondria is Like the Stove/Oven
The mitochondria is like the stove and oven in the restaurant because the stove and oven produce the energy for the food to cook and bake in the same way that the mitochondria supplies energy for the cell to use.
The cell wall is like the walls of the restaurant because the walls protects the restaurant from environmental conditions and gives shape to the restaurant in the same way the cell wall protects, supports, and gives shape to the plant cell.
The Cell Wall is Like the
