Plant Cell Structure

HideShow resource information
Cell Wall
Rigid structure made of cellulose that surrounds plant cells and provides extra support
1 of 7
Middle Lamella
The outermost layer of the cell that acts as the glue sticking adjacent cells together and creating stability
2 of 7
Plasmodesmata
Gaps in te cell wall that create channels linking cell walls together and allowing intercellular substance transport and communication
3 of 7
Pit
Parts of the cell wall that are very thin and line up with pits of adjacent cells in order to enable more efficient substance exchange
4 of 7
Chloroplast
Flattened structured surrounded by a double membrane
5 of 7
Amyloplast
Starch store for energy release when the plant requires it
6 of 7
Vacuole and Tonoplast
The vacuole is and empty compartment containing cell sap (water, minerals enzymes etc) to keep cells turgid as well as isolating unwanted chemicals. The membrane is called the tonoplast and controls water substances enter/leave the vacuole.
