In plants as producers we will be learning about lots of really cool things!
Separates the interior of the cell from the outside. It is semipermeable which means that it can allow the transport of water, nutrients and waste through it.
A membrane-bound organelle that contains the genetic material (DNA).
Comes in two types: rough and smooth. Proteins are synthesised (made) here and used throughout the cell.
Small living machines that create biological proteins on the endoplasmic reticulum.
A group of vesicles and membranes within the cytoplasm involved in intracellular transport.
A spherical container that holds many enzymes which can break down large molecules.
A storage container which may hold water, waste products, or materials that could be harmful to the cell.
Organelles in which respiration occurs and energy is produced in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
A structural layer outside the cell membrane which is often tough and rigid to provide shape to the cell.
Clusters of tiny microtubles which help the cell when it is dividing during growth.
The food producers of the cell - they are where photosynthesis occurs to gain energy from sunlight.
