Top Ten Cell Organelles

Remember 6th Grade Biology? No one does. Well, here's a recap

The Top Ten

1 Nucleus

I'm learning about this right now... And I have to listen to this STUPID cell rap. "Cells, cells, they're made of organelles. Try and pull a fast one, the cytoplasm gels". IT MAKES NO SENSE! It literally ruined my cell experience. - Minecraftcrazy530

It is basically the mind of the cell. It controls all cellular processes. - ethanmeinster

2 Chloroplasts

They produce food through photosynthesis, using sunlight. Sadly, it can only be found in plant cells. It would be awesome to be able to create pizza with only sunlight. - ethanmeinster

3 Mitochondria

They convert food energy into energy the cell can use. - ethanmeinster

Try living without ATP!

4 Lysosomes

Most underrated organelle. Without lysosomes, cells would mostly become toxic. - ethanmeinster

5 Cell Membrane

It protects cells from foreign objects and plays a part in diffusion. - ethanmeinster

6 Cell Wall

Adding additional protection and support to plant cells. - ethanmeinster

7 Ribosomes

Translation would never happen without these suckers!

They produce proteins for the cell to use. - ethanmeinster

8 Vacuole
9 Golgi Bodies

They're basically the mailing room of the cell. - ethanmeinster

10 Endoplasmic Reticulum

The Contenders

11 Peroxisomes

So underrated! It's so interesting how they make oxygen for the cell AND break down fatty acids!
