Cell Functions

A cell is one of the building blocks of life. Cells are membrane-bound groups of organelles that work together to allow it to function. Some of the major organelles include the nucleus, mitochondria, lysosomes, the endoplasmic reticulum, and the Golgi apparatus. Plant cells also include chloroplasts, which are responsible for photosynthesis.
