Animal and plant cells

  • Plant and animal cells have similarities and differences
  • Plant cells usually have everything that the animal cells have and more

Human/animal cells:

  • Nucleus- contains genetic information
  • Cytoplasm-gel like substance where most chemical reactions happen&enzymes that control these reactions
  • Cell membrane-holds the cell together and controls what goes in and out
  • Mitochondira-where most respiration reactions happen-releases energy for the cell to work
  • Ribosomes-where proteins are made in the cell

Plant cells:

  • Rigid cell wall-made of cellulose, supports the cell and strengthens it
  • Permanent vacuole-contains cell sap (weak sugar and salts solution)
  • Chloroplasts-where photosynthesis occurs which makes the plant's food. They contain a green substance called chlorophyll
