If you’ve ever wondered what part of the cell the number nine represents, you’re not alone. You may be surprised at the answer! The symbol for the organelle known by the endoplasmic retina is the cell’s 9thchromosome. This organelle is the heart of the cell and produces the proteins and substances that the rest of the cells need to function. You might even know it by sight!
The cell’s largest organelle, the nucleus, has complete control over all its parts. The cell’s cytoplasm is the jelly-like material that joins the cell membrane and nucleus. It also houses many of the cells’ organelles, such as the mitochondria, chloroplasts and ribosomes. Organelles like these are vital for the cell to function.
