Single Membrane / Double membrane /no membrane?

  1. Jul 8, 2015 #1
    Nucleus - Double membrane
    Nucleolus- no membrane
    Chromatin- no membrane
    Nuclear Envelope - Double membrane
    Smooth/Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum -single Membrane
    Golgi Body- single Membrane
    Central Vacuole- single Membrane
    Lysosomes - single Membrane
    Chloroplasts - Double membrane
    Mitochondria - Double membrane
    Ribosomes -no membrane
    Cilia-No membrane
    Flagellum- No membrane
    Am I right?

    Looks good to me, though I'm not sure about cilia and flagella. Both are not separated from the cytoplasm by a membrane, but they are structures on the plasma membrane, which is a single membrane.

    CIlia/ flagella are encased by the cell membrane (lipid bilayer).
