Cells are the smallest unit of life, and are in every living organism. However, cells are so small that you cannot see them with your naked eye. Therefore, scientists must use a microscope to see them. Cells are classified into two groups: prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Prokaryotes are organisms that do not contain membrane-bound organelles, like the endoplasmic reticulum or the Golgi apparatus. On the other hand, eukaryotes do contain these membrane-bound organelles.

If you compare a cell to the real world, you will see many organelles working together to perform an important function. Everything has a specific structure to perform a specific function. In this paper you will see most of the relations between different organelles and their functions, structures, and the diseases they cause if they malfunction. Everything is made of cells. Cells are the basic building blocks of all organisms. Cells are very small. You can't see them without a microscope. Inside these cells are organelles that function in different ways to keep the cell alive. Cells are classified into two groups: eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Eukaryotic cells have membrane bound organelles why prokaryotic cells don't. these organelles perform have a system of working and a process for everything it needs, until it is disturbed.

A ribosome is a small cell organelle that functions as a micro-factory for assembling proteins. Ribosomes are composed of a combination of nucleic acids and special proteins. The linking of amino acids combined with the translation of information is the main principle of protein production process. (1) Ribosomes can be found in all living cells, and contain roughly 40% protein and 60% ribosomal RNA, or rRNA. However, unlike other organelles, ribosomes are not bound by a membrane and...
