Plant Cell

Plant cells have many different parts that are need to work together and function as a whole. These parts are the cell membrane which can be compared to a "Condom" due to the fact that is a very thin protective layer that lets certain substances to pass through. Cell wall is a thicker rougher membrane, which gives the plant most of its structure and support, the cell wall also bond with other cell walls to form the structure of the plant. Centrosome may be also referred to as the "Microtubule organizing center" it's looks like a small body near the nucleus having a dense center and radiating tubules, here in the centrosome is where the microtubules are made. Chloroplast is a CD shaped organelle that holds the plants

Nucleus is a sphere shaped body holding many organelles, the nucleus controls many of the function of the cell and contain DNA. Ribosome are small organelles composed of RNA cytoplasmic granules.

Rough endoplasmic reticulum know as the rough ER is a vast system of in folded convoluted sacks that are located in the cytoplasm. The rough ER is covered with ribosome that what gives it's name and appearance. The rough ER moves materials thought the cell and produces proteins in cisternae which are sent to the Golgi body. Smooth endoplasmic reticulum is know as the smooth ER this is a vast system of connected tubes that are located in the cells cytoplasm. The smoother ER transports materials though the cell and contain enzymes and produces the digests lipids and proteins. It moves the newly-made proteins and lipids to the Golgi body, lysosomes, and membranes. Vacuole is a fluid filled sack with membrane surrounding cavities inside a cell the vacuole is filled with foods being digested and waste on its why out of the cell.

The difference between the animal cell and the plant cell are very different like the plant cells have cell walls which these are composed of cellulose, and a variety of other materials. Plant cells have a substance called chlorophyll which is required for photosynthesis. This pigment contains chloroplast which make the plants appear green. The plants cells have a vacuole which
