Transcript of Animal Cell Analogy

Animal Cell Analogy
Animal Cell Analogy: Cooking
Animal cells are eukaryote cells and are the basic unit of life.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and is where life full of food and memories are created.
Cell Membrane: The Door
The cell membrane is in charge of what goes into the cell and what goes out of the cell. It also contains what is inside of the cell
The door to the kitchen keeps birds and bugs out, while also keeping the articles of the kitchen from being blown away by the wind outside.
The Door
The cytoplasm forms the ground substance for the interior of the cell. Its main function is to hold the cell organelles of the cell.
Cytoplasm: Eggs
Eggs, like cytoplasm, are a binding agent for numerous fillings and mixtures. The eggs keep the concoction and its ingredients together.
The chromatin is responsible for transferring the DNA blueprints of a cell over to the RNA, protein, and other DNA copies. It makes sure that the various blueprints are accurate.
Chromatin: Recipe Book
The recipe book is for other cooks to accurately and precisely follow the recipe created by Ina Garten. Cookbooks allow others to recreate Ina's delicious meals.
Recipe Book
Centrioles are paired cylinder like organelles located near the nucleus. They play an important role in the cell division. They separate during cell division and form mitotic spindle that help move chromosomes.
Centriole: Egg Separator
An egg separator separates the egg yolk from the egg whites. Some recipes only call for one or the other.
Egg Separator
The nucleus regulates all cell activity. It is the site of all gene transcription and manages gene expression. The nucleus contains most of hereditary information.
Nucleus: Ina Garten's Home
Ina Garten's kitchen is where she develops and runs her cooking empire that has made such an impact on the cooking world.
Ina Garten's Home
The cytoskeleton helps to maintain cell shape. The primary function of the cytoskeleton is the internal movement of cell organelles. The cell locomotion and muscle fiber contraction could not take place without the cytoskeleton.
Cytoskeleton: Cake Pan
Cake Pans
Cake pans enable the cake batter to take its shape during baking. The pan acts as a skeleton/ mold for the cake to take its shape.
Nucleolus: Ina Garten
It contains all the DNA of the cell. It's used as instructions to create the building blocks of the cell(proteins), and is often referred to as the brain of the cell as it controls what goes on.
Ina Garten
Ina Garten is like the nucleolus since she is the mastermind behind each and every recipe she demonstrates on the show. Her brilliant mind contains all the ideas and recipes.
Cilia: Stand Mixer
Cilia are hair like structures on cells that beat in unison to move along substances.
Stand Mixer
A stand mixer initiates movement throughout the mixture ti thoroughly incorporate the various ingredients. The attachment enables the ingredients to move about and combine.
Mitochondrion: Oven
Membrane bounded organelle in which ATP molecules are produced during the process of cellular respiration.
Through convection ovens, hot air is circulated in the enclosed environment to thoroughly cook and produce various meals and dishes.

Long, slender extension used for locomotion by some bacteria, protozoans, and sperm.
Flagellum/ Flagella: Chopsticks
Long, slender utensil used to stir, scoop, and gather by primarily Asians.
Organelle consisting of sacs and vesicles that processes, packages, and distributes molecules about or from the cell.
Golgi Apparatus: Twinkie Factory
The factory consists of machines and workers that processes, packages, and distributes Twinkies to various stores around the nation.
Twinkie Factory
Membrane bounded vesicle that contains hydrolytic enzymes for digesting macromolecules and bacteria; used to recycle worn out cellular organelles.
Lysosome: Meat Tenderizer
Meat tenderizers contain enzymes that break down the protein in meat to soften the texture and make it more ideal for eating. Overall, it makes meats less tough.
Meat Tenderizer
Site of protein synthesis in a cell; composed of proteins and ribosomal RNA
Ribosomes: Stove Top
Site of meal concoctions where omelets to soups are formed. Consists of burners and knobs.
Stove Top
Membrane bounded sac, larger than a vescile; usually functions in storage and can contain a variety of substances. In plants the central vacuole fills much of the interior of the cell
Vacuole: Cabinets
Cabinets serves as a storage unit in the kitchen of many homes. Cabinets store items from clothes to dishes.
System of membranous saccules and channels in the cytoplasm, often with attached ribosomes
Endoplasmic Reticulum: Silverware Organizer
It is a system of divided channels/ rectangles in drawers often with utensils in them.
Silverware Organizer
Double membrane that surrounds the nucleus in eukaryotic cells and is connected to the endoplasmic reticulum; has pores that allow substances to pass between the nucleus and cytoplasm
Nuclear Envelope: Colander
Mechanism that surrounds the desired foods to be drained. IT has pores that let water drain out while the food is retained within.
