Transcript of Animals Cells

Reason Being is that it is what made humans as well as other animals Animal Cells: The Cell Membrane What is an Animal Cell ? An animal cell may be EXTREMELY small however, it consists of many different, microscopic, complex parts within it. Some of these many parts that I am going to talk about are the nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, chloroplast, vacuole, mitochondria and the cytoplasm. The Nucleus - Nucleus (also referred to as the "eye")
- most important part of the cell
- controls/regulates all cell activity
- it controls function and information storage
- controls duplication of genetic information in the form of chromatin The Cell Membrane...
- holds in the organelles and the cytoplasm
- located on the outer part of the cell
- allows things to be imported and exported into the cell

Within a Plant Cell...
- is located inside another part called the cell wall
- animal cells do not have a cell wall
- the cell membrane inside a plant cell has the same functions as it does in an animal cell - cells are the smallest units of life
- everything living has one or more cell
- there are multiple different cells
- an animal cell has many different parts within the cell membrane
- cell is able to multiply into into two cells by going through mitosis
- cells can eventually build into tissue, muscles and organs etc Brandon Spiteri The Basic Unit of Life Welcome to the Cell Parts The Chloroplast - the chloroplast is a plastid
- plastid contains chlorophyll and other nutrients
- is the food producers of the cell
- chloroplast not contained inside an animal cell
- contains photosynthesis in plants to help them grow The Vacuole
- maintains the fluids within the cell
- removes waste
- stores ingested food
- provides as well as maintains the cellular structure
- located in the cytoplasm The Mitochondria - the main function of the mitochondria is the production of energy adenosine triphosphate
- energy required for metabolism
- oxygen combines with glucose to form this energy
- cell uses this energy for cell survival and function
- mitochondria are among the largest organelles
- mitochondria are located in the cell's cytoplasm outside the nucleus The Cytoplasm - substance fills most of the cell (ground substance)
- jelly-like substance that is made up of about 80% water
- clear in colour
- offers a lot of support to the cell
- it is to hold the cell organelles of the cell
- maintains the cells shape As you can see around the dark green dots, the cytoplasm is everywhere! The End Thank you Merci Fini Presentation by: Brandon Spiteri
