The structures within the cell are known as organelles which carry out specific functions. Endoplasmic reticulum is a transport system of tubes and channels connecting organelles within the cell. The nucleus is the control center of the cell. It houses the nucleolus and genetic material (chromatin) used for directing cell functions. The nuclear envelope is a membrane which surrounds and protects the nucleus. Nuclear pores allow materials to pass in and out of the nucleus. Ribosomes are factories that produce proteins needed by the cell. The nucleolus produces ribosomes. Cytoplasm is a gel-like substance containing the organelles. Lysosomes contain chemicals (enzymes) that break down and recycle harmful materials. Mitochondrion is a rod-like structure that converts the energy in food molecules to a form that the cell can use. Golgi bodies direct different materials made in the cell to where they need to go. The cell membrane is the outer protective layer of all animal cells. It consists of two layers composed of proteins and lipids. A cell membrane is known as a semipermeable membrane since it only allows certain substances to move into and out of the cell. chromatin carbohydrate lipid bilayer protein
