Often, the eukaryotic cell is compared to a factory. For this question, you need to describe each of the following organelles in terms of an actual working factory (such as an automobile factory, etc.). You need to describe what role or job these organelles would have in a factory (1 point each). Also, you must explain why each organelle has that particular job/role in the factory (1 point
each). Make sure you describe the type of factory in which your organelles work (1 point).
nucleus. the control center of an organism
mitochondria. an organelle in the cytoplasm of cells that functions in energy production.
Lysosome. a cell organelle containing enzymes that digest particles and that disintegrate the cell after its death. [
Golgi apparatus. an organelle, consisting of layers of flattened sacs, that takes up and processes secretory and synthetic products from the
endoplasmic reticulum and then either releases the finished products into various parts of the cell cytoplasm or secretes them to the outside of the cell.
Ribosomes. a tiny, somewhat mitten-shaped organelle occurring in great numbers in the cell cytoplasm either freely, in small clusters, or attached to the outer surfaces of endoplasmic reticula, and functioning as the site of protein manufacture.
Vacuole. a membrane-bound cavity within a cell, often containing a watery liquid or secretion.
Endoplasmic reticulum. a network of tubular membranes within the cytoplasm of the cell, occurring either with a smooth surface. ]
