Defining the Organelles in above diagrams

Axopoda: Any group of thin pseudopods containing complex arrays of microtubles and enveloped by cytoplasm

Central Capsule: contains the organelles such as the mitochondria and vacuoles

Nucleus: A membrane-bound organelle that contains most of the cell;s genetic material

Endoplasm: Contains the cell’s nucleus and a water bubble called the contractile vacuole which regulates the water content

Ectoplasm: Transports things within the cell an used for protection of the cell. The outerpart of the cytoplasm of the cell.

Lattice Shell: Parameter of the cell

Shell- Protection, place where they “farm” if they have asymbiotic relationship with algae

PseudopodiaCytoplasm-filled projection of a eukaryotic cell membrane or a unicellular protist. Used for motility, or for ingesting nutrients or other particulate matter. 

Membrane– thin semi-permeable membrane that surrounds the cytoplasm of a cell. Allowing certain substances in the cell and keeping substances out.

Food Vacuolea membrane-bound vacuole in which ingested food

Contractile Vacuole– Allows the flow of water from the cytoplasm and then discharges this externally by the opening of a permanent narrow neck

Ribosomes: Serves as the site of biological protein synthesis

Microtubules: Maintains structure, forms cytoskeleton, intracellular transport

Apicoplast: Vital organelle for parasit’s survival. Actual function has not yet been defined

Mitochondria: Power house of the cell

Pellicular Cisterna: One of the flattened vesicles comprising the Golgi apparatus and the part of the endoplasmic reticulum studded with ribosomes

Cilia Hairlike organelles that line the surfaces of certain cells and beat in rhythmic waves, providing locomotion to ciliate protozoans and moving liquids along internal epithelial tissue in animals

Pellicle– a thin layer supporting the cell membrane

Oral Groove– Mouth

Buccal Overture– Restricted opening through which the buccal cavity opens to the cell surface

Anal Pore– Where waste leaves the cell

Cytoplasm– the cell substance between the cell membrane and the nucleus

Macronucleus– Macronuclei are polyploid and undergo direct division without mitosis. It controls the non-reproductive cell functions, such as metabolism.

Micronucleus– The small nucleus that forms whenever a chromosome or a fragment of a chromosome is not incorporated into one of the daughter nuclei during cell division

Radiating Canals– Openings in the cytoplasm of the cell which are used to trap excess water or debris from the metabolic processor non-food mater

Nucleolus: A small body in the nucleus of a cell that contains protein and RNA and is the site for the synthesis of ribosomal RNA and for the formation of ribosomal subunits.

Chloroplast Site of photosynthesis

Stigma: A light sensitive-spot that allows the Euglena to detect light, so that it may move towards it in order to conduct photosynthesis

Daughter Colonies: Colonies containing up to 50,000 cells

Myonemes: Contractile protein filaments in the cytoplasm of protozoans 

Gullet: Food passage

Cytosome: Cell mouth is a part of a cell specialized for phagocytosis, usually in the form of a microtubule– supported funnel or groove
