Where protein synthesis occurs, are attached to ER membranes or are scattered throughout the cytoplasm.
Clusters of ribosomes in the cytoplasm that enable a cell to quickly manufacture proteins required in a large amount.
Golgi apparatus
Stack of about six flattened membranous sacs.
Elongated, fluid filled sacs that vary in size and shape.
"Garbage disposal of the cell" tiny membranous sacs.
Microtubule and microfilaments
Two types of thin threadlike strands in the cytoplasm. Microfilaments are tiny rods of a protein called actin.
Microtubules are long slender tubes with diameters two or three times those of microfilms to.
Dense body composed largely of RNA and protein
Loosely coiled fibers of DNA and protein that condensers form chromosomes
Nuclear envelope
Roughly spherical structure, double layer consists of inner and outer lipid bolster membranes
Cilia and flagella
Motile projections attached beneath the cell membrane.
Cilia propel fluid over cellular surfaces
Flagellum enable sperm to move
