Edible Cell Day!!



We are approaching edible cell day, where you all will be bringing in models of eukaryotic cells made out of food we can eat. Do your best to find foods that will look similar to the actual organelles found in the cell. For example, ribosomes are small bead-like parts found on the rough endoplasmic reticulum. I think they look like Nerd candies.

Prizes will be awarded to best tasting, most accurate, and worst tasting.

Bring in your edible cell on November 20th.

BlogWork

Go to the following website and read each page about the Eukaryotic Animal Cell (by clicking the next button). Identifying Eukaryotic Animal Cell Organelles

Pick one organelle and write a description of its purpose and function.

Peroxisomes are the rehab cells, the ones that detox all the wasteful stuff from the cell. They are most common in the liver and kidney cells for obvious reasons.

The webpage didn't say if they had peroxide in them but if they do that's probably why they're called peroxisomes.

They dissolve alcohol and other such stuff, which is another reason they exist. Maybe the biggest drunks have too little of them. Who knows? NOT ME!

The liver is in charge of purifying the body and it's blood, and the kidney is in charge of turning waste into pee, apparently.
That's why Peroxisomes are so important to them.

The nucleus is like the brain of the cell and is the site of ribosomes production and contains the genetic materials of the cell.

The nucleus is basically the brain of the cell. It is what controls the cell.

Centrosome:the centrosome has two hollow cylindrical centrioles that are parralel with each other.And they pplay a big role in miltotic division of eukaryotic animal cells

cytosol is a liquid found inside cells in its cytoplasm. the cytosol contains a large amount of macromolecules which can alter how molecules behave.In eukaryotic cells the the cytosol forms the surrounding environment of the organelles.

The organelle i chose to talk about the Golgi Apparatus. So the organelle gets molecules ready to be released. They synthesize the molecules, then they package them, then they send them off.

the nucleus is double layered and it located at the center of the cell. the nucleus contains genetic material like DNA. The nucleolus witch is in the center of the nucleus.

I chose to write about the mitochondria. The mitochondria is an important organelle because it gathers nutrients for the cell and distributes it.

The nucleus is double layered and contain the genetic materail/ DNA the nucleus contains nucleoulus and is the site of ribosomes production.

the nucleus (most important part imo) contains the genetic material of the cell and is the site for ribosomic production.

B-Square and Dan Rock like scientist!!! said...

mitochondria: mitochondria organelles have two layers of membrane's. the energy of the glucose also other nutrients are transferred to the atp by going through a series of chemical reaction's in the space of oxygen A.K.A (O).

The ribosomes, located on the rough endoplasmic reticulum and scattered through the cytoplasm, are made up of ribosomal RNA and proteins. They are the protein factories for the cell. It interacts with the messenger RNA and transfer RNA.
