Red Blood Cell

Cailynne Hoelscher & Faith Kistler

Function of the Red Blood Cell: Carries oxygen/ removes CO2. Live for approximately 120 days, then die.

Nucleus: Maintains the integrity if the genes and control activities of the cell by regulating gene. Example: Control center of the cell.  

Nucleolus: The nucleolus makes up 25% of the nucleus. The nucleolus is made up of proteins and ribonucleic acids. The main job of the nucleolus is to rewrite ribosomal RNA and combine it with proteins.

Nuclear Membrane: The nuclear membrane encloses the nucleus. It is made up of a double-lipid and encases genetic material in Eukaryotic Cells.

Vacuole: Contributes to rigidity of the plant. The vacuole uses water to develop hydro static  pressure. It stores nutrients and non-chemicals, along with breaking down complex molecules.

Mitochondria: Produce energy currency of cell, ATP. It regulates cellular metabolism.

Golgi Body: Modifying, sorting, and packaging proteins for secretion. Transport lipids and create of lysosomes.

Ribosomes: Come from rough ER. Are found in cytoplasm. They make protein.

Smooth ER: The Smooth ER is a storage organelle. It helps in the making and storage of lipids.

Rough ER: Very important in the the synthesis and packaging of protiens. Ribosomes are attached to the outside making it "rough".

Cell Membrane: biological membrane that separates the interior of all cells from the outside environments.

Centrosome: organelle that serves as the main microtuble organizing system.

Cytoplasm: comprises cytosol (the gel-like substance enclosed within the cell membrane) – and the organelles – the cell's internal sub-structures
