  1. To enter or leave a cell, substances must pass through


  1. a microtubule.
  2. the Golgi apparatus.
  3. a ribosome.
  4. the nucleus.
  5. the plasma membrane.


  1. Which of the following correctly matches an organelle with its function?


  1. mitochondrion . . . photosynthesis
  2. nucleus . . . cellular respiration
  3. ribosome . . . manufacture of lipids
  4. lysosome . . . movement
  5. central vacuole . . . storage


  1. Of the following organelles, which group is involved in manufacturing substances needed by the cell?


  1. lysosome, vacuole, ribosome
  2. ribosome, rough ER, smooth ER
  3. vacuole, rough ER, smooth ER
  4. smooth ER, ribosome, vacuole
  5. rough ER, lysosome, vacuole

10) The nucleus of a cell A) is the region of the cell where ribosomes are degraded.  B) contains DNA and controls cell activities C) is contained inside the nucleolus.  D) is surrounded by a single layer of membrane.

MITOSIS match the follow descriptions on the left with the terms from the Word Bank on the right.



  1. The two chromatids of each chromosome are pulled apart by the microtubules attached to the kinetochore (= a specialized area of the centromere) in the direction of the opposite poles. Each single chromatid can be regarded as the new chromosome from now on.
  2. The two daughter cells become independent. This follows up the actual mitosis, the cytoplasm of the daughter cells is divided by a cell membrane In animal cells the separation of the new cells involves a cleavage furrow that pinches the cell membrane.
  3. Is the longest lasting stage of the cell cycle. Interphase is considered as the phase during which cells conduct their “normal” cellular functions, i.e. take up nutrients, grow, read DNA and produce proteins, and prepare themselves for the mitosis, in particular by replicating their DNA.
  4. This is the conclusion of nuclear division. The spindle disappears, the chromosomes despiralize, a new nuclear envelop is formed and the new nucleoli are visible
  5. the preparative phase. The chromosomes begin to spiralize and the nuclear membrane and nuclear bodies (nucleoli = place in the nucleus active in the synthesis of ribosomes) disappear. The centrosomes (consisting each of a pair of centrioles – only in animal cells) that have been duplicated during the G2-phase separate now. All chromosomes become visible and consist now of two chromatids that are joined together at the centromere.
  6. All chromosomes are completely spiralized and move to the middle of the cell. A spindle of microtubules (thread-like structures made of tubulin polymers) is formed from pole to pole (from the centrioles in animal cells) and from pole to centromere.
