Plant Cell There are two classes of cells that exist in biology today, there are prokaryotic cells and there are eukaryotic cells. A prokaryotic cell is a cell that has no nucleus which consists of bacteria; a eukaryotic cell is a cell that has a nucleus. There are two types of eukaryotic cells in biology; plant and animal cells. Plant cells have organelles in each cell that helps then function and go through processes such as photosynthesis. Each cell in our body consists of organelles that help the cell function. All plant cells have a nucleus which consists of a nucleolus, nuclear envelope and nuclear pores. The nucleus is an oval shape which contains the nucleolus and DNA. The process of DNA being altered into RNA takes place within the nucleus; the nucleolus is the site of RNA synthesis and also contains RNA and Protein. The Nuclear envelope consists of two membranes its function is to separate the content within the nucleus from outside of the cell. The nuclear pores control the passage of proteins between the cell’s cytoplasm and plasma of the nucleus. Plants contain certain organelles that animal cells do not contain which is a cell wall which is the cell wall; it functions as the structural support for the plant cell. Other organelles within the animal cell consists of a plasma membrane which is a structure that surrounds all cells, the plasma membrane separates the organelles with in the cell from the Interstitial fluid the plasma membrane also acts as a selective barrier that allows exchanges in and out of the cell. Then there is the Golgi apparatus that consists of flattened membrane stacks which
Both plant and animal cells are eukaryotic cells which mean they have a ‘true’ nucleus. Animal cells can come in an array of sizes and unusual shapes, unlike a plant cell which is typically rectangular or cube shaped.
What can be found in a Plant Cell and an Animal Cell?
Cell Membrane - This surrounds the cytoplasm in the cell, enclosing its contents. It is thin and semi permeable and allows substances to move through it.…
Plant Cell Science Project
The following sample plant cell science project experiment is meant to give you ideas on how to perform experiments and arrange your project. Use this project to come up with ideas for your own experiments.
Plant Cell Science Project - Plant Cells and Salt
The purpose of this sample plant cell science project experiment is to determine how different salt concentrations affect the cytoplasm of plant cells.…
Unless there are plants inside, the rest of the pond remains black.
Although bone meal includes more phosphorus than most eco-friendly fertilizers, you use less of it to get the same results. Our idea is to encourage maintenance workers to switch to bone meal in the spring time because plants absorb bone meal at a slower rate than regular fertilizers, thus using less and getting the same results.…
What are the major difference between plant and animal cells, and what do these cellular differences mean for what plant cells can or can’t do, as compared to animals? How do plants differ from animals in how they solve one of the fundamental problems of being a multicellular organism: how to obtain energy?
What are the major tissue types in plants? How do they differ in structure and function? What are the major cell types in ground tissue? How do they differ?…
Because of their many similarities, animal cells and plant cells are all classified as cell stub plant cells from animal cells in several kinds of ways
Complete the table adding in the organelles that did not appear in the animal cell.
Organelle | What its known as | What its role within the cell is |
Cells are the basic unit of life and often combine with other cells to form tissues.
3. The image above is of a plant cell. You can tell by the shape of the cell. Plant cells tend to be rectangular shaped while animal cells are circular. Plant cells have a cell wall and have a large central vacuole.
5&7. In the cell cycle, the cell grows and prepares for cell division. The cell is in interphase when it is preparing for division.…
Plants – Lecture 1, Revision question answers
Plant cells and tissues
1. a. Describe the structure of a primary cell wall. b. How does a secondary cell wall
a. The primary cell wall consists of strands of cellulose that run parallel to each other to
form the microfibrils. Various molecules including glycoprotein and pectin form crosslinks between the microfibrils.
b. Compared with the primary cell wall the secondary cell wall is thicker and more rigid.…

Endoplasmic Reticulum ( Both Plant and Animal )
It carries materials throughout the cell. It is a type of organelle in the cells of eukaryotic organisms that forms an interconnected network of flattened, membrane-enclosed sacs or tubes known as cisternae. It occurs in most types of eukaryotic cells.
Ribosome ( Both Plant and Animal )
The ribosomes in both the plant and animal cell, produces protein.…
Important to make food
Mitochondria Different shapes and sizes depending on the cell Oval Plant/Animal Creates energy for the plant by breaking down sugar Important for plants to move
Endoplasmic Reticulum Fairly large Ribbon-like Plant/Animal Transports materials around cell
Cell Membrane Long and slim Square/rectangular Plant/Animal Between the cytoplasm and cell wall Support and protection Quite important foe cell health and protection
Cell Wall Long and slim Square/rectangular Plant
