All animals and plants are made of cells. Animal cells
and plant cells have features in common, such as
nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and
ribosomes. Plant cells also have a cells wall, and they
often also have chloroplasts and a permanent
vacuole. Cells may be specialised to carry out a
particular function.
Dissolved substances pass into and out of cells by
diffusion. Water passes into and out of cells by
osmosis.…read more

Animal cells and plant cells
Animal cells and plant cells have these parts in common:
nucleus contains genetic material, which controls the activities of the cell
cytoplasm most chemical processes take place here, controlled by enzymes
cell membrane controls the movement of substances into and out of the cell
mitochondria most energy is released by respiration here
ribosomes protein synthesis happens here
Plant cells also have extra parts:
cell wall strengthens the cell
contain chlorophyll, which absorbs light energy for
permanent vacuole filled with cell sap to help keep the cell turgid…read more

Specialised cells
Cells may be specialised for a particular function. Their structure will allow
them to carry out their function well. Here are some examples.
You are likely to be given information, perhaps in a
diagram, to help you explain the adaptations of a
particular cell type to its function.…read more
