Discussion of all aspects of cellular structure, physiology and communication.
Animal cells and plant cells are very similar, but...
Cell Wall around cell membrane, large Central Vacuole(holds water for structural support; also called Turgor)
Plastids called Chloroplasts which perform photosynthesis
plant cells are also more structured than animal cells, they form a certain hard shape (which holds the plant up i guess) whilst animal cells sort of form a blob, something to do with the cell wall as that increases the outermost structure of the cell.
there are added organnelles like the vauole (storage area) which is only in plant cells, also plant cells have cell walls, animal cells don't ect...
hope it helps
......I read somewhere which says that small vacuol do appear at certain animal cells..(maybe I'm wrong....I have poor memory...)
And I'm pretty sure that plant cells able to make carbohydrates which provide energy....animal cells can not make carbohydrates themselves...

Generally, animal cells can have small vacuoles or none. The vacuoles get larger in pathologic cases.

1: no cell wall
2: can make skin, hair, ect,
3: can/cannot have a vacoule
4: ( plants dont have mitochondria, do they?)
1: outer cell wall
2: chloroplasts whcih make them green and are used in photosynthesis
3: DO have a vacuole.
and.....(something else....really bad memory..)
i don't suffer from insanity, i enjoy every MINUTE OF IT.
Animal, 4/ Yes they do. Besides photosynthesis, they also respire, and have mitochondria.
