[Biology Form 4] Organelles And Its Function

Function: A site for the synthesis of proteins

Atomic structure of the 50S Subunit from Haloarcula marismortui. Proteins are shown in blue and the two RNA strands in orange and yellow. The small patch of green in the center of the subunit is the active site.


Function: A site for cellular respiration and the synthesis of ATP

Simplified structure of mitochondrion



Function: Enables the plant cell to carry out photosynthesis

Chloroplast ultrastructure:

1. outer membrane
2. intermembrane space

3. inner membrane (1+2+3: envelope)
4. stroma (aqueous fluid)

5. thylakoid lumen (inside of thylakoid)

6. thylakoid membrane

7. granum (stack of thylakoids)

8. thylakoid (lamella)

9. starch
10. ribosome

11. plastidial DNA

12. plastoglobule (drop of lipids)


Function: Help to form spindle fibres during cell division

Function: A site for synthesis of lipids and steroids

Function: Processes, packages and transport carbohydrates, proteins and phospholipids
