There is a wide variety of differences between these two cells. I’m here to explain that too you. Let’s begin.
Plant and animal cells are alike and different in many ways. They are alike because they both have cytoplasm, cell membranes, & ribosomes. Let’s get to the differences.
Let’s start with plant cells.These cells are eukaryotic, or called a eukaryote(you•care•E•oats)have different cell stuctures (seen above) than animal cells, (which are also eukaryotes). Plant cells have cell walls to protect the insides of the cell. A eukaryote will always have a cell membrane made of plasma. A cell membrane holds a diversity of molecules, mostly proteins & lipids. It also acts as a connector,for which two pieces of the cytoskeleton can attach together, and it can attach two pieces of the cell wall.
Cytoplasm fills most of the cell with a gel-like substance. Then we have the ribosomes. Ribosomes act as messengers for a nucleiod and message protein. A nucleiod in a eukaryote is like a central spot. Like I told you before, the nucleiod tells the ribosome to give a message to protein. Inclusions (not ‘in conclusion’) are substances that may be in a cell, varying on the cell type. It stores nutrients and others things too.
These are all animal cells. We are now going to move onto the animal cells. A animal cell has a internal membrane, much like a plant cell. Vacuoles form by budding off a membrane. Vacuoles can hold energy, food, or waste. Mitochondrian can be found in almost all animal cell. They play an important role in a cell. They make energy for the cell. They have their own DNA and are protected by double layered membranes. Ribosomes are formed by the fission of mitochondrian. Plastids are in animal cells and they take the shape of chloroplasts. They are used to store food. A cells skeleton is called a cytoskeleton, much like an exoskeleton.
