I need to compare the nucleolus of a cell to something in real life..?

Can you think of anything to comapre it with?


like what I said for Cell Membrane was: just like a ticket checker at the airport, the cell membrane regulates what goes in and out of the cell.

thanks so much I need answers really bad this is due tomorrow. =D


Also, I'll need to compare ribosomes to something in real life too, so that would help if you know either of those =)

Update 2:

Oh and I meant nucleolus, not the nucleus, which IS like the brain. =) thanks though.

    I guess the ribosomes could be like a microwave-they take food (proteins) and make them into something useable in the cell....

    Ribosomes are like machine tools. Nucleolus is like a machine tool manufacturer.

    What Is A Nucleus Like

    Cell nuclei ARE real life. It's practically in the definition.

    If you need a macroscopic metaphor, I would use the brain.

    stick with the ticket takers except its a football game and the field is the neculeus and there are 26 players in the field.

    Youre lazy. Answer this question by yourself.

    A main function of the nucleolus is the production and assembly of ribosome components.

    So you can say that its a factory that produces parts.

    its the brain
