Chloroplasts capture light energy from the sun to produce the free energy stored in ATP and NADPH through a process called photosynthesis.
Chloroplasts are the food producers of the cell.
Which organelle will produce steroid hormones in the testes and adrenal cortex while detoxifying alcohol in the liver.
Chapter 6 Involvement of Human Peroxisomes in Biosynthesis and Signaling of Steroid and Peptide Hormones Isabelle Weinhofer, Markus Kunze, Sonja Forss-Petter.
The organelle called ‘endoplasmic reticulum’ occurs in both plants and animals Smooth ER is also involved in the production of steroid hormones in the adrenal.

After attachment of the phagocyte to its target, some sort of signalgeneration, which is poorly understood, results in physical or chemicalchanges in the cell that triggers ingestion. Ingestion is an engulfmentprocess that involves infolding or invagination of the cell membraneenclosingthe particle and ultimately releasing it into the cytoplasm of the cellwithin a membrane vesicle. The end result of ingestion is entry of theparticle enclosed in a vesicle derived from the plasma membrane of thecell. This structure is called the phagosome.

The cell membrane separates the cell from the environment and allows the movement of materials in and out of the cell.
function is to protect the integrity of the interior of the cell by allowing certain substances into the cell, while keeping other substances out.
Thus the cell membrane also serves to help support the cell and help maintain its shape.
Synthesis and Biosynthetic Trafficking of Membrane Lipids
The endoplasmic reticulum serves many general functions, including the folding of protein molecules in sacs called cisternae and the transport of synthesized proteins in vesicles to the Golgi apparatus.
Structurally, the endoplasmic reticulum is a network of membranes found throughout the cell and connected to the nucleus.

Because of their unique properties, encapulins represent an attractive platform for applications ranging from biomedicine (delivery and imaging devices) and catalysis (nanoreactors and scaffolds) to materials science (biological synthesis of inorganics). The fact that encapsulins are able to naturally internalize cargo proteins and that cargo proteins carry short C-terminal targeting peptides (TPs) predisposes those systems for applications where non-native proteins, peptides or functionalizable small molecules need to be encapsulated. This fact, in combination with chemical conjugation technologies and the accessibility of both N- and C-terminus for further genetic modification makes encapsulins excellent platforms for the integration of multiple functionalities at the nanoscale. Moreover, encapsulins have been shown to be unusually stable over a large range of pH and temperature.

There is an uninterrupted chain between the nucleoplasm and the interior parts of the nucleolus, whichoccurs through a system of nucleolarpassages.
Lysosomes digest excess or worn-out organelles, food particles, and engulfed viruses or bacteria.
Lysosomes are the main sites of digestion, that is the break-down of structures, within cells.
There are, however, some circumstances (diseases/conditions) in which lysosomes begin to 'break-down' living cells - not just useless parts of cells or potentially harmful structures.
You will find organelles called lysosomes in nearly every animal-like eukaryotic cell.
