Introduction to plant cell chromosomes. Definition of chromosome: (Gr Chrome= colored, soma= body) 1. Chromosomes are self reduplicating nuclear filaments endowed with hereditary (genetic) function. 2. Chemically chromosome is an intricate fabric composed of nucleic acids and protein. 3.
A plant cell does have cytoplasm. Cytoplasm is located on the outside of the cell nucleus where the organelles are located. It is a jellylike material. A plant cell is surrounded by a thick cell wall. This wall bonds with the other cell walls to form the structure of the plant. Inside that wall is the cell membrane.
The endoplasmic reticulum is a network of tubules and flattened sacs that produce and process lipids and proteins in plant and animal cells. The endoplasmic reticulum is a network of tubules and flattened sacs that produce and process lipids and proteins in plant and animal cells.
The Golgi apparatus (GA), also called Golgi body or Golgi complex and found universally in both plant and animal cells, is typically comprised of a series of five to eight cup-shaped, membrane-covered sacs called cisternae that look something like a stack of deflated balloons.
The mitochondria is the location inside the cell where the energy, called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is made. This specific part of the cell is composed of rod-shaped organelles. Mitochondria are the animal-version chloroplast, where the energy cycle in plants takes place.
The function of the nucleus in the plant cell is to store the plant's DNA and control the activity of the cell through protein synthesis. The nucleus is enclosed by the nuclear membrane, which has pores for the passage of RNA and proteins. The nucleus contains the nucleolus and chromatin. The ...
