The Organelles of a Cell

The different organelles of a cell are unique. I have picked an airport for my example of a cell. To start, the Cell Wall, in a cell, is located outside the plasma membrane and the function is to protect and support the cell. In an airport, the Cell Wall is like the outside walls of the airport and the function is to protect and support the building.
The Plasma Membrane, in a cell, is located just inside the cell wall and the function is to allow nutrients into and wastes out of the cell. It is selectively permeable, which means the membrane only allows certain substances into the cell. In an airport, the Plasma Membrane is like the security you have to go through to get into and out of the airport. More indepth would be to say the metal detectors are like transport proteins.
The Nucleus is found in the cytoplasm of a cell. The function of the nucleus is to control most cell functions. It also holds the hereditary material (DNA) and the nucleolus which produces ribosomes. The control tower is like the nucleus of an airport.
The Cytoskeleton, in a cell, is found inside the plasma membrane and is used for the framework of the cell. The Cytoskeleton in an airport is like the metal framing of the building. It supports the building so it won’t collapse.
The Mitochondria is located in the cytoplasm in a cell. Its function is to convert food energy into ATP by the process of cellular respiration. In an airport, the mitochondria would be like the gas that powers the shuttles which take people to and from their cars.
Endoplasmic Reticulum is located in the cytoplasm and its function is to modify proteins and synthesize lipids as well as cell membrane. The ER in an airport would be like the conveyer belts that bring all the luggage to the correct airplane.
The Golgi Apparatus in a cell makes the final preparation of proteins before they leave the cell. In an airport, the golgi apparatus is like the airport workers who load the baggage and fuel the plane before it takes off.
Lysosomes are located in the cytoplasm and their job is to break down macromolecules and old cell parts. In an airport these would be like hijackers who destroy the planes, hundreds of lives, and themselves.
The Vacuoles store all the water for the cell. In an airport, the vacuoles would be like the large tankers of jet fuel.
Ribosomes are found in the cytoplasm and they assemble amino acids into proteins for the cell to use. The chefs in the airport would be like the ribosomes of an airport because they mix ingredients into food.
Chloroplast converts light energy from the sun into glucose for use within the cell. This procedure is called photosynthesis. In an airport, the solar panels would best describe the function of the chloroplast.
