Cytology Lab

For each assignment, you will use the M.U.S.E. link to complete the lab.

In this lab, you will observe diagrams showing the structure of plant and animal cells. Using the textbook and virtual library resources, fill in the tables.

Cytology Lab

Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and animation to complete your report. Use the Lab 2 worksheet to complete the tables.

This lab will familiarize you with the basic structures of animal and plant cells. You must thoroughly study the cell diagrams and memorize the major structures of cells as well as the function of each cellular part.

Your lab report will consist of the completed tables.

2 Chromatin (DNA)
3 Nucleolus - an organelle within the nucleus where ribosomal RNA is produced
4 Nuclear Envelope -
5 cell membrane - thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the cell
6 centrosome- small body located near the nucleus, which has a dense center and radiate tubules.
7 cytoplasm - jellylike material outside the cell nucleus in which organelles are located
8 Golgi body - a flattened, layered organelle that looks like a stack of pancakes and is located near the nucleus (1)
9 lysosome - round organelles surrounded by membrane and containing digestive enzyme. (1, 2)
10 mitochondrion - rod-shaped organelles with double membrane (1, 2)
11 nuclear membrane- membrane that surrounds the nucleus
12 nucleus - spherical body containing many organelles, including the nucleolus (1, 2)
13 ribosome - small organelles composed of RNA-rich cytoplasmic granules that are sites of protein synthesis (1, 2)
14 rough ER- vast system of interconnected, membranous, infolded and convoluted sacks that are located in cell's cytoplasm. Rough ER is covered with ribosomes that gives it a rough appearance (1, 2)
15 smooth ER- a vast system of interconnected , membranous, infolded convoluted tubes that located ...

Solution Summary

Animal and plant cells are the components of live. Animal cells differ from plant cells in that they do not have a protective cell wall. Plant cells have a rigid cell wall made out of peptidoglycan to help stabilize support for the plant. Animal cells do have a plasma membrane to protect them from the outside environment.
