Animal cell organelles. Artwork showing the organelles in a eukaryotic cell. This is an animal cell. Structures include the nucleus (centre) which has a membrane with nuclear pores (purple). Inside the nucleus is the DNA (genetic material, white) and the nucleolus (blue). Transport vesicles (green and red) carry material to and from the rough endoplasmic reticulum (green) and Golgi apparatus (pink). Mitochondria (one at lower right) provide energy. Ribosomes (yellow, one at lower left) carry out RNA translation and formation of proteins (multi-coloured strand at left). Centrioles (yellow cylinders) form part of the cell's cytoskeleton.
