Plant Cell Organelles

Plant Cell Organelles © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4725 Visit for Online Learning Resources. Plant cells have many of the same organelles as animal cells. They serve the same functions in plant cells. Plant cells also have specialized organelles that allow them to convert the Sun’s energy into food. Endoplasmic reticulum is a transport system of tubes and channels connecting organelles in the cell. The nucleus is the control center of the cell. It houses the nucleolus and the genetic material (chromatin). The nuclear envelope is a membrane which surrounds and protects the nucleus. Nucleolus is the site where ribosomes are made. Nuclear pores allow materials to pass in and out of the nucleus. Ribosomes are factories that produce proteins needed by the cell. Cytoplasm is a gel-like substance containing the organelles. Mitochondrion is a rod-like structure that converts the energy in food molecules to a form that the cell can use. Golgi bodies direct different materials made in the cell where they need to go. The cell wall is a rigid outer layer of plant cells that provides support. The cell membrane is the layer inside the cell wall of plants that regulates which substances enter and leave the cell. Vacuoles are sacs that contain water and store nutrients and waste products. Chloroplasts contain chlorophyll which captures energy from the Sun and uses it to produce food for the plant in a process known as photosynthesis. chromatin
