Cell Organelle Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

A specialized subunit within a cell that has a specific function, and is usually separately enclosed within its own membrane. Little organs within the cell. Organelle

The organelles where proteins are made from the translation of RNA strands. Ribosome
Jelly-like substance that makes up the matrix of the cell body. Cytoplasm
a double-layered membrane that surrounds the cell. Also called the plasma membrane, it regulates what enters and leaves the cell. Cell Membrane
known as the garbage men, contains digestive enzymes to breakdown worn out cell parts or destroy foreign invaders Lysosome
modifying, sorting and packaging of proteins for secretion. Golgi Body
membrane system of folded sacs and interconnected channels that serves as a site for protein and lipid synthesis Endoplasmic Reticulum
found in fungi, plants, and bacteria. It surrounds the cell membrane and aids in support and structure of the cell. Cell Wall
They can be used to contain cellular waste, isolate materials that may be harmful to the cell, or hold water for plants. They are very versatile in their function Vacuoles
