Well, as you know, the mitochondria are the producers of most of a cell's energy and the nucleolus creates ribosomes. The cell wall is only in a plant cell and is a rigid layer of non-living material that surrounds the cells of plants and some organisms.

An analogy can be written in the form: this is to that, as this(2) is to that(2).

Here are some possible analogies for mitochondria in cells:

  • The fuel cell in a hydrogen/electric powered automobile (good analogy because the fuel cell is performing a function in the car in a way very similar to the mitochondrion in a cell) -- fuel cell : automobile mitochondria : cell
  • the power plant for a town -- power plant : town :: mitochondrion : cell
  • I would think of it as some sort of power plant. Anything that produces energy.
  • I was told once by a teacher to think of the mitochondria as red bull. Just as red bull provides the body "wings" or energy, the mitochondria provides energy for the cell.
  • Or you can liken it to the fuel feeding a boiler or electrical supply to a company.
  • It is like a gas tank, "fuels" up what you want.

The energy plant is one of the analogies of a mitochondrion. Mitochondria are found in both the animal and plant cells and are the site of the cellular respiration.

The word analogies is the plural noun of analogies. A good sentence would be, the analogies between them were outrageous.

In plants, algae, and some eukaryotic cells, the CHLOROPLASTS are analogous in function and structure to Mitochondria. CHLOROPLASTS have a second internal membrane, their own genome, and their own ribosomes. However, they are larger than mitochondria, have a uniform membrane, smooth oval shape, and contain thylakoids, which are absent in mitochondria.

You'll have to come up with your own analogies. Writing a bunch of random analogies down on the internet isn't going to help your story at all. You have to have analogies that actually have something to do with your own characters, setting, and plot.

One way of working out analogies is to use a bridge map which is a type of thinking map. A bridge map is used for illustrating analogies and identifying similarities between relationships.
