Tissues and Cells
by: Fred

Circulation meaning the work of the circulatory system is a function of many tissues. Many types of cells take part in circulation: red blood cells circulate throughtout the body inside blood vessels made of epithelial cells and also of smooth muscle cells, cells of the connective tissues and so on; blood is pumped by the heart that is made of cardiac striated muscle cells.

The same apply to the energetic and reproductive functions of the body as a whole: many different cells and tissues participate.

But if you want answers at the cellular level, you can think of energy production as a role of mitochondria and of reproduction as a role of chromosomes. But the question should be better clarified.
