2. Cell Structure
- Can you label and interpret drawings and photographs of eukaryotic cells as seen under an electron microscope?
- Can you recognise and explain the functions of the various structures in a eukaryotic cell such as: nucleus, nucleolus, nuclear envelope, rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum (ER), golgi apparatus, ribosomes, mitochondria, lysosomes, chloroplasts, plasma (cell surface) membrane, centrioles, flagella and cilia?
- Can you explain how organelles work together for the production and secretion of proteins (no detail of protein synthesis is required)?
- Can you explain the various roles of the cytoskeleton?
- Can you compare and contrast the structure of prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells?
- Can you compare and contrast the structure and ultrastructure of plant cells and animal cells?
Watch the video below to take a tour of the cell with Mr Anderson. He looks at the different types of cells, why cells are small, and how the structures inside a cell function.
