Organelles in animal cells and lipid synthesis

Postby ccBiologist » Sun Nov 27, 2011 7:34 pm

I have read alot of books and im kinda confused can someone give me a list of organelles only found in plant cells and animal cells . So far i know that the organelles only found in animal cells are lysosomes , centrioles and in plant cells i know the chloroplast ,amloplast , cell wall are only found in plants can someone also explain how does lipid synthesis take place fully. I know for starters that lipids are made from a condensation reaction between glycerol(propane-1,2,3-triol) and 3 fatty acids but does all of this take place in the smooth ER or does some of it take place in the Golgi apparatus.

there are more kinds of plastids ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
