Transcript of Plant Cell analogies to The Human Body

Plant Cell analogies to The Human Body
The Nucleus
The nucleus contains nearly all the cell's DNA & with it the coded instructions for making proteins and other important molecules.
The Brain
like the nucleus, is the center (not actual center) of all that is our body. It gives all the instructions of what the body does; such as, how the body moves and when the body moves. Basically everything that is concerned with the body.
The Nucleolus
The nucleolus is a small, dense region where the assembly of ribosomes begins.
The Brain Cells
control what the brain as well as the body does. Brain Cells are the central place where your memory is stored.
Cell Wall
The Cell Wall's main funtion is to provide support and protection for the cell; cell walls lie outside the cell membrane.

is similar to the cell wall because, like the cell wall lets small thing enter like oxygen, the skin lets sunlight to enter.
Plants and some other organisms contain chloroplasts. Chloroplast are organelles that absorb the energy from light and convert it to chemical energy during photosynthesis.
Human Eyes
are like chloroplast because, although they don't capture energy, eyes capture light and with the help of the brain make an image.
The Cytoskeleton is a protein filament network that helps the cell maintain a good structure and is also involved in movement.
is like the cytoskeleton because, it helps maintain a perfect body structure and is directly linked to our body movement.
Cytoplasm is the portion outside of the nucleus that fills in the empty space of the cell.
is like the cytoplasm because they both fill in most of the cell; us human are 70% made of water
Golgi Apparatus
The Golgi Apparatus' function is to change, sort, and package proteins & other materials that come from the ER for storage in or outside the cell.
is similar to the golgi apparatus in the sense that they both convey blood(protein) throughout the body(cell).
Endoplasmic Reticulum
The Endoplasmic Reticulum(ER) is were the lipid components of the membrane are made, along w/ proteins & other materials that are moved from the cell.
Blood Vessels
are like the ER because it also moves and transports blood(proteins) throughout the body(cell).
Mitochondria are organelles that convert the energy found in food into compounds more convenient for cell use.
The Stomach is comparable to the mitochondria because it breaks down the food we eat, so that its easier for our body to digest it.
Vacuoles are sack like structures that stores food water and waste.
Body Fat

is some what similar to vacuoles because it is sack like and is the effect of the body storing food which can eventually become waste(due to the amount of body fat you have).
Cell Membrane
The Cell Membrane regulates what enters and leaves the cell & gives protection and support for the cell.
are like the cell membrane because their function is the maintenance of posture and body position. And the support from posture can be affected by the size of your muscles.
Ribosomes are small particles of RNA & protein found in cytoplasm. Proteins are also assembled on ribosomes.
, just like the ribosomes, makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.
