What do nucleus and vacuoles have in common?

What characteristic do the nucleus, the mitochondria, and the vacuoles of animal cells have in common? A. They all create energy while doing their tasks. They are all involved in producing food for the cell.

Which organelles do both plants and animals have in common?

Structurally, plant and animal cells are very similar because they are both eukaryotic cells. They both contain membrane-bound organelles such as the nucleus, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, lysosomes, and peroxisomes. Both also contain similar membranes, cytosol, and cytoskeletal elements.

What can a Golgi body be compared to in a house?

The Golgi apparatus is like a closet because it packages and moves proteins as a closet is for placing packages.

What would a nucleolus be in a house?

The nucleolus is located inside the nucleus, it where the DNA is actually contained. It is like he hallways of the house, because they connect the various rooms of the house and are what is between the rooms of the house.

What is the lysosome like in a house?

Lysosomes are like trash cans because they dispose of wast in the cell like how we use the trash can to dispose of garbage around the house. Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) would be hallways because ER Transport things to other places in the cell just like hallways transport us to different places in the house.

What household item represents lysosomes?

HOUSEHOLD ITEMS- Some household items that would represent a lysosome would be a blender, a cutter, and maybe even a dog because the dog usually tears up all of his/her toys; kind of like breaking something down.

What everyday object is like a lysosome?

Lysosomes are nicknamed “Cleanup Crews”. Their function within a cell is break down food that the cell can use to destroy older cells. A real-life example of lysosomes in a restaurant is the cleaning staff or busboys.

What cell is lysosome found in?

Lysosomes are found in nearly every animal-like eukaryotic cell. They are so common in animal cells because, when animal cells take in or absorb food, they need the enzymes found in lysosomes in order to digest and use the food for energy. On the other hand, lysosomes are not commonly-found in plant cells.

What is the cell membrane like in real life?

The cell membrane is like a security guard, because the cell membrane controls what goes in and out of a cell like a security guard controls who goes in and out of the gate. 4. Cell Wall -Supports and protects the cell while still letting materials pass through it.
