Mini bio project: lysosomes, nucleolus, etc

Post by DengakuMan52 » Tue Oct 17, 2006 1:12 pm

Ok here's the thing. We're doing a mini project on parts of a cell, we have to make our own "cell city". My team needs three more ideas. The city is based on Carrabas, some examples of what we're doing are listed below:

The nucleus is the manager because the manager directs the activities of the employees and workers, like a nucleus does.

The plasma/cell membrane is the enter and exit sign because they both control who enters and exits.

Ok, I just need an idea for the nucleolus, lysosomes, and any other organele other than cilia, golgi apparatus/body, mitochondria, ribosomes, vacuole, microtubles, and E.R.

I NEED AN ANSWER TO THIS NOW!!!!!! Please

My favorite is ER-Golgi relationship. To my students, I explain them as "Sending your letter to your lover" mechanism 8)

endomembrane system is really eazy, y not pick one from them., how bout lysosomes acting like your security guard.. coupled with sum sniff dogs :P or a bouncer but its not a nightclub u r creatin ryt? :lol: lol

then for nucleolus... it could be simple like admin assistant or exec. secretary but it has to be inside the manager ryt since your manager is your nucleus and nucleolus is inside the nucleus.. now that's hard... :P

not so good, cause the nucleolus is inside the nucleus. maybe the nucleus can be parliament and the nucleolus senator..
