Nucleolus: Contained in the nucleus of Eukaryotic cells. The Nucleolus is thought of as the “ brain” of the nucleus. It is made of proteins and ribonucleic acids and its main function is to rewrite ribosomal RNA and combine it with proteins. This process creates ribosomes, and because of its role in creating them and a close relationship to chromosomal matter, the Nucleolus is thought to be the cause for many diseases.

Nucleus: It is a double-membraned organelle present in Eukaryotic cells. The nucleus makes most of the cells DNA. It is made up of seven parts, they are the outer membrane, the inner membrane, the nucleoplasm, the nucleolus, the chromatin, the nuclear envelope and the nuclear pore. Some of the main functions of the nucleus are

Its main function is to dispose of waste and digest materials. Their size ranges from 0.1 micrometers to 1.2 micrometers and has an outer membrane that allows materials to enter but stops the enzymes from escaping. Whenever a piece of the cell gets damaged it’s sent to the lysosome where it is broken down. Once it’s broken down it is sent out and expelled through the cell membrane.

Endoplasmic reticulum: The endoplasmic reticulum is an organelle made of tube-like structures known as cisternae. Its main function is to fold proteins and transport them to the Golgi apparatus. Only organelle folded proteins are sent to the Golgi apparatus. Any proteins that aren’t folded properly cause an unfolded protein stress response. During this response, the production of proteins slows and this stress is thought to be damaging to the body's insulin resistance.

Golgi Apparatus: The Golgi apparatus is a major organelle in eukaryotic cells. The main function of it is to make and package macromolecules like proteins. It's also made up of cisternae, and usually, has five or six. Each of these has a region containing enzymes with different functions. Each of these is to modify the contents, depending on where they end up. It's also important in that it is vital for the creation of lipids and lysosomes. It also works closely with the Endoplasmic Reticulum, in that when the ER makes proteins, they're sent to the Golgi Apparatus

They generate most of the energy in the cell but are also part of cell growth. Mitochondria also affect human health with mitochondrial disorder and cardiac dysfunction. Some of its functions include making energy for the cell, regulate the number of calcium ions in a cell and help build hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. They make energy by receiving nutrition molecules to be processed, thus charging them and then combining them with
