Cell Wall is made of cellulose – it strengthens and supports the cell
Chloroplasts, which contain Chlorophyll, absorb light energy to make food through Photosynthesis.
A Vacuole is filled with cell sap [a sugar and water solution] and it provides rigid support.
this is for PLANTS ONLY
What are the functions of the cell?
Cell Membrane controls what goes in and out of the cell
Cytoplasm is where all the reactions take place
A Nucleus is like the ‘’brain’’ of the cell and controls the activity of the cell.
THIS APPLIES TO BOTH PLANT AND ANIMAL CELLS
This applies to BOTH types of Cell
Chemical Reactions are controlled by enzymes. The cytoplasm contains special structures called Mitochondria, which is where most of the energy is released during respiration.
This question is taken from a past GCSE paper.
Give the function of these parts of a plant cell.
A group of similar cells is called a
A group of afferent tissues form a
A group of organs working together form a
Or a whole organism
Tissues Organ Organ System Organism
Palisade Cells are designed for Photosynthesis
Tall shape means a lot of surface area exposed down the side for absorbing C02
Good chance of light hitting the chloroplast before it reaches the bottom of the cell.
Specialist Cells have a particular functions that help them to carry out their job efficiently.
You might be asked how a particular type of cell is adapted to the job it does. You will therefore need to make notes on the following pieces of information.
1) The sperm cell - designed to fertilise eggs A sperm cell is very small and has a little tail which provides movement so it can swim and find an egg to fertilise Its head contains enzymes (in the vacuole) which allow it to digest its way through an egg membrane so the two nuclei can join It contains half the number of chromosomes in the nucleus - these carry genetic information from the father, which will be passed on to the offspring
