Animal And Plant Cells!

Common sturctures between animal and plant cells

  • Nucleus to control the cell's activities
  • Cytoplasm where many chemical reactions take place
  • a cell membrane that controls the movement of materials
  • Mitochondria where energy is released during aerobic respiration
  • ribosomes where proteins are made (synthesised)

Specialised cells

  • As organisms develop, some of their cells become specialised to carry out paticular jobs. This is called differentiation.
  • Some cells in plants may become xylem or root hair cells
  • some cells in animals will develop into nerve or sperm cells.
