Mind Map Of Cellular Organelle's Functions
This is a Mind Map Of Cellular Organelle's Functions. An organelle is a specialized subunit of a cell that has a defined role in cell biology. Organelle is derived from the idea that these structures are sections of cells, similar to how organs are parts of the body, hence the suffix -Elle, which is a diminutive. Organelles are either independent lipid bilayer-enclosed functional units (also known as membrane-bound organelles) or spatially different functional units without a lipid bilayer surrounding them (non-membrane bound organelles). Although most organelles are functional units within cells, some functional units that extend outside of cells, such as cilia, the flagellum and archaellum, and the trichocyst, are often referred to as organelles. Microscopy is used to identify organelles, and cell fractionation can be used to purify them. Organelles come in a variety of shapes and sizes, especially in eukaryotic cells. They include endomembrane system structures including the nuclear envelope, endoplasmic reticulum, and Golgi apparatus, as well as additional structures like mitochondria and plastids. While prokaryotes lack eukaryotic organelles, they do have protein-shelled bacterial microcompartments that are hypothesized to operate as primitive prokaryotic organelles, as well as other membrane-bounded structures. Organelles include the prokaryotic flagellum, which protrudes outside the cell, and its motor, as well as the largely extracellular pilus.
