A Cell's Structure is a Sight to See
Transcript of A Cell's Structure is a Sight to See
The structure of the tent and the machines can be compared to various organelles like the cell membrane or even mitochondria. The performers and other people can also be compared. A prime example is the ringmaster to the nucleus. He is like the leader or the brains of the operation just like the nucleus, which is the brain and control center of the cell. Just like the circus, a cells structure is not only magnificent to look at, but a demonstration of things coming together to make one working team. Vacuole A Vacuole stores food or water in the cell.
Just like a food vendor who carrys and sells food to the audience. A Vacuole is like a food vendor. Mitochondria The Mitochondria produces energy through cellular respiration. This is very much like a power generator to the circus because both supply power throughout the unit. Nucleus Cytoskeleton The Cytoskeleton supports the structure and helps move synthesized proteins. The cytoskeleton is like a circus floor because all the organelles move about it, just as the floor allows people to move about the circus.. The floor is the foundation to the structure. It is the base of the tent. The cytoskeleton is like the circus floor. The rough endoplasmic reticulum has ribosomes attached to it. it makes new proteins by inserting them into spaces that shape and modify them into functioning protein. The Rough endoplasmic reticulum is like the prop builders. Where all the carpenters make props to fit any and all of the acts. The Golgi Apparatus is like the stage hands. Both ribosomes and performers create things! Both the cell membrane and the circus tent are units of structure that control what comes in or out. The Golgi Apparatus modifys, sorts and packages the proteins that arrived from the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum. Just as the stage hands move, set up and shape the set after given the props from the Prop Builders. Both the Golgi Apparatus and the Stage Hands take what the RER or Prop Builders make and modify, set up and change them to make them fit into the cell or the circus. Both provide structure and allow either other organelles or people to move about this base. Both build things. For the RER, they create proteins, while the Prop Builders create props. Both Store food and water. Both clean and recycle things.
