Name and describe four membranous organelles found in cells.
Nucleus= enclosed by its nuclear membrane or envelope
= contains chromatin, DNA and RNA
Mitochondria= enclosed by two membranes
= converts chemical energy (food) into another form of chemical energy (ATP) that the cells can use
Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)= rough ER has ribosomes attached to it; it is also involved in protein synthesis
=smooth ER stores calcium and makes lipids; it is attached to the rough ER
Golgi Apparatus= also called golgi body or golgi complex
= packages, stores, sorts, and transports manufactured proteins
Chloroplasts (in plant cells)= enclosed by two membranes
= converts solar/light energy into chemical energy (food/sugar)
Nucleus: genetic material repository
Mitochondria: ATP synthesis Site
Chloroplast: site of photosynthesis in plant cell
Ribosomes: site of protein synthesis
Lysosomes : spherical like organelles that contains hydrolytic enzymes to breakdown, when is needed macro molecules. They are present at the animal cells.
Plastids : double membrane organelles found in the plants where the majority of the metabolic substances is preserved.
Golgi apparatus: made out from intercommunicated cisterns and where the proteins are processed
