Cell organelles

Notes

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER)

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an extensive network of membrane-bounded spaces or channels that occur throughout the cytoplasm mainly endoplasm. This note contains detail information about structure types and functions of ER.

Ribosomes

Ribosomes are small, electron microscopic, dense, ribonucleoprotein particles which occur in cytoplasm either freely or attached to ER. This note contains detail information about types, structure and functions of ribosomes.

Mitochondria

Mitochondria are filamentous, granular, cytoplasmic structures which are the site of cellular respiration and generation of ATP. This note contains detail information about structure and functions of mitochondria.

Plastid

Plastids are double-membrane bounded cell organelle which are mainly found in the plant cell. This note contains detail information about plastids, its types, structure and detail about chloroplasts.

Lysosomes

Lysosomes are electron microscopic vesicular or sac-like structure of cytoplasm that are involved in intracellular digestive activities. They are commonly called as suicidal bags. This note contains detail information about its structure, types and functions.

Golgi bodies

Golgi body is a complex cytoplasmic structure which help in secretion, membrane transformation and biosynthesis. This note contains detail information about its structure and function.

Nucleus

The nucleus is the most important part of the cell which directs and controls all the cellular activities. This note contains detail information about its structures and functions.

Microbodies Microtubules and Microfilament

Microbodies Microtubules and Microfilament are the additional cell organelles. This note contains detail information about microbodies microtubules and microfilament along with cilia, flagella and vacuoles.
