Transcript Cell Organelles
HOW DOES A CELL DO ITS JOB?
WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A
CELL AND ITS ORGANELLES?
What jobs do cells do?
Making proteins, like keratin (hair follicles)
Sending signals (nerve cells)
Turning sunlight into glucose (leaf cells)
Contracting for movement (muscle cells)
Organelles work together to allow the cell
to accomplish its job.
Controls the cell by giving directions to make
proteins, especially enzymes.
It also contains DNA and copies its genetic material
so that when the cell divides, the new cell is exactly
the same as the original.
Ribosomes are the site of protein production.
Located on the endoplasmic reticulum
Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)
A system of folded membranes that transport
proteins within the cell
G.A. tags proteins and exports them outside the cell
in membrane bubbles called vesicles.
Membranous sac filled with enzymes (certain type of
protein) that break down used organelles and large
Vacuoles are sacs that
store water and other
Vacuoles are in plant
Capture the sun’s energy to make glucose in plants
and algae. The energy is stored in chemical bonds.
Bonds are broken in molecules of glucose to release
energy which is stored or used as ATP.
Regulates what enters and leaves the cell.
The cell wall provides support to plant cells and
The region between the
cell membrane and the

Pick one organelle of the cell. What might happen to
the cell if you were to take that organelle away.
