Parts of a cell




Nucleus: carries genetic information for future generations and directs activities of the cell.


Nuclear membrane: protects the nucleus from chemicals


Ribosome: Manufactures protein


Mitochondria: Generates energy for the cell By converting sugar glucose and other nutrients into adenosine triphosphate. This gives the cell to perform basic functions


Lysosome: Breaks down break down worn-out organelles and ship their building blocks to the cytoplasm where they are used to construct new organelles. Lysosomes also dismantle and recycle proteins, lipids, and other molecules.


Cell membrane: separates the cell from its surroundings and regulates the traffic across the membrane.


Cytoplasm: A watery liquid that helps the biochemical functions of a cell

Chloroplasts: captures energy from the sun, to be used later to make sugar


Vacuole: stores compounds and helps in plant growth.
