I would like to know if nucleus is the largest organelle in a living cell. If there is no nucleus as in certain living cells such as the red blood cell in a mammal, then, what is the largest cell in the red blood cell then? Also, is nucleus considered as an organelle? How about the nucleolus in the nucleus, is it an organlle too? What is the smallest organelle in a living cell? is it ribosome?( a wild guess). Kindly enlighten me as I find cell biology interesting but confusing. Thank you for your time. Have a nice day.Hope to hear from you soon.
