Parts of a Cell Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

the thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the cell. The cell membrane is semipermeable, allowing some substances to pass into the cell and blocking others. Cell membrane
A small body located near the nucleus - it has a dense center and radiating tubules. The centrosomes is where microtubules are made. During cell division (mitosis), the centrosome divides and the two parts move to opposite sides of the dividing cell. The centriole is the dense center of the centrosome. Centosome
the jellylike material outside the cell nucleus in which the organelles are located. cytoplasm
a flattened, layered, sac-like organelle that looks like a stack of pancakes and is located near the nucleus. It produces the membranes that surround the lysosomes. The Golgi body packages proteins and carbohydrates into membrane-bound vesicles for "export" from the cell. Golgi body
round organelles surrounded by a membrane and containing digestive enzymes. This is where the digestion of cell nutrients takes place. lysosomes
spherical to rod-shaped organelles with a double membrane. The inner membrane is infolded many times, forming a series of projections (called cristae). The mitochondrion converts the energy stored in glucose into ATP (adenosine triphosphate) for the cell. mitochondrion
the membrane that surrounds the nucleus. nuclear membrane
an organelle within the nucleus - it is where ribosomal RNA is produced. Some cells have more than one nucleolus. nucleolus
spherical body containing many organelles, including the nucleolus. The nucleus controls many of the functions of the cell (by controlling protein synthesis) and contains DNA (in chromosomes). The nucleus is surrounded by the nuclear membrane. nucleus
small organelles composed of RNA-rich cytoplasmic granules that are sites of protein synthesis. ribosomes
(rough ER) a vast system of interconnected, membranous, infolded and convoluted sacks that are located in the cell's cytoplasm (the ER is continuous with the outer nuclear membrane). Rough ER is covered with ribosomes that give it a rough appearance. Rough ER transports materials through the cell and produces proteins in sacks called cisternae (which are sent to the Golgi body, or inserted into the cell membrane). endoplasmic reticulum
fluid-filled, membrane-surrounded cavities inside a cell. The vacuole fills with food being digested and waste material that is on its way out of the cell. vacuole

Description

An organelle found in plants and algae that absorbs sunlight and uses it to drive the synthesis of organic compounds (sugars) from carbon dioxide and water Chloroplasts
A protective layer external to the plasma membrane in plant cells bacteria fungi and some protists; protects the cell and helps maintain its shape Cell Wall
A structure found in animal cells from which microtubules originate and that is important during cell division (contains two centrioles) Centrosome
The central vacuole is a cellular organelle found in plant cells. It is often the largest organelle in the cell. It is surrounded by a membrane and functions to hold materials and wastes. Central Vacuole
A narrow thread of cytoplasm that passes through the cell walls of adjacent plant cells that allows connections between them. Plasmodesma
A digestive organelle in eukaryotic cells; contains hydrolytic enzymes that digest engulfed food or damaged organelles Lysosome
The contents of a eukaryotic cell between the plasma membrane and the nucleus; consists of a semi-fluid medium and organelles; can also refer to the interior of a prokaryotic cell Cytoplasm
A cell structure consisting of RNA and protein organized into two subunits and functioning as the site of protein synthesis in the cytoplasm; in the eukaryotic cells the ribosomal subunits are constructed in the molecules Ribosomes
organelle composed of a double membrane that acts as the storehouse for most of a cell's DNA Nucleus
A bean-shaped organelle that supplies energy to the cell and has its own ribosomes and DNA Mitochondria
The thickest of the three main kinds of fibers making up the cytoskeleton of a eukaryotic cell; a hollow tube made of globular proteins called tubulins; found in cilia and flagella Microtubules
That portion of the endoplasmic reticulum with ribosomes attached that make membrane proteins and secretory proteins Rough ER
The portion of the endoplasmic reticulum that lacks ribosomes centrioles/ A small cylindrical organelle near the nucleus in animal cells, occurring in pairs and involved in the development of spindle fibers in cell division. Smooth ER
A small cylindrical organelle near the nucleus in animal cells, occurring in pairs and involved in the development of spindle fibers in cell division. Centrioles
A thin flexible layer around the cells of all living things; it's job is to separate the cytoplasm from the cell's surroundings Cell Membrane
A complex of vesicles and folded membranes within the cytoplasm of most eukaryotic cells, involved in secretion and intracellular transport. Golgi Body

Known as the "skeleton" of the cell; network of long protein strands in the cytosol that helps support the cell Cytoskeleton
A system of membranes that modifies and packages proteins for export by the cell Golgi apparatus
Powerhouse of the cell; produces energy (ATP) from oxygen and sugar (cellular respiration) Mitochondria
An organelle containing digestive enzymes Lysosomes
The organelle where ribosomes are made, synthesized and partially assembled, located in the nucleus Nucleolus
The organelle that contains the DNA and controls the processes of the cell Nucleus
An organelle that functions in the synthesis of proteins Ribosome
Stores water and nutrients for the cell; very large in plant cells Vacuole
A membrane bound sac that contains materials involved in transport of the cell Vesicle
An internal membrane system in which components of cell membrane and some proteins are constructed Endoplasmic Reticulum
whip-like tails found in one-celled organisms to aid movement Flagella
One of several bodies with a specialized function that is suspended in the cytosol of the cell; small organs Organelle
A double membrane that surrounds the nucleus in the cell Nuclear envelope
