Transcript of Cell Analogy

Hospital Analogy Animal Cell The nucleolus produces ribosomes, which then transport to the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The nucleolus could be compared to a hospital's CEO. Nucleolus The cell membrane controls what materials enter and exit the cell. This is like hospital doors, where patients enter and exit. Cell Membrane This organelle is responsible for the storage of lipids, but depending on the type of cell, does different things, like how a nurse can do different procedures for different patients. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum Mitochondria is the 'power house' of the cell. This organelle provides energy the cell needs. This is like how generators power hospitals. Mitochondrion Ribosomes are responsible for creating proteins, like how doctors are responsible for creating new cures. Ribosomes Vacuoles store waste in animal cells, like a garbage can would store hazardous waste in hospitals. Nucleus The nucleus is the 'brain' of the cell. The nucleus stores the cell's DNA and controls the cell's activities. It is like a hospital administration. Cytoplasm Cytoplasm is a gel like substance that holds the organelles in cells together and keeps materials in place, like hallways in a hospital keep patients where they need to be. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum The rough endoplasmic reticulum packs and 'houses' ribosomes, which can be compared to hospital rooms, housing patients. Golgi Apparatus Packages macromolecules and transports materials throughout the cell, like mail is delivered to hospitals to transport important information and materials. Lysosomes Lysosomes hold enzymes and this organelle is like a hospital's bio hazard area, breaking down waste and other materials in the cell. Vacuole Nuclear Envelope The nuclear envelope protects the nucleus, like medicine given by doctors helps keep your body safe.
