  • Cells
    • Animal
      • Nucleus: Contains genetic material, which controls the activities of the cell
        • Plant
          • Mitochondria: Most energy is released by respiration here
          • Cell Wall: Strengthens the cell
          • Chloroplasts: contain chlorophyll, which absorbs light energy for photosynthesis
          • Permanent Vacuole: Filled with cell sap to help keep the cell turgid
      • Cytoplasm: Most chemical processes take place here, controlled by enzymes
        • Plant
          • Mitochondria: Most energy is released by respiration here
          • Cell Wall: Strengthens the cell
          • Chloroplasts: contain chlorophyll, which absorbs light energy for photosynthesis
          • Permanent Vacuole: Filled with cell sap to help keep the cell turgid
      • Cell membrane: controls the movement of substances into and out of the cell
        • Ribosomes: Protein synthesis happens here
        • Bacteria/yeast
          • A single- celled organism. A different structure to animal and plant cell.
          • Cytoplasm and membrane surrounding cell wall
            • Genetic material in bacterial cell is not in a distinct nucleus
      • Ribosomes: Protein synthesis happens here
        • Animal & Plant
        • Plant cell only
        • Bacterial/yeast
