ORGANELLE
FUNCTION
Cytoplasm
The cytoplasm surrounds the cell’s nucleus and organelles
Plasma Cell Membrane

Endoplasmic Reticulum
The endoplasmic reticulum is involved in molecule processing and transport
Nucleus
The nucleus contains most of the cell’s genetic material.
Ribosome
Ribosomes use the cell’s genetic instructions to make proteins.
Lysosome
Lysosomes and peroxisomes destroy toxic substances and recycle worn-out cell parts.
Mitochondria
