differences between an animal and a plant cell • Both plant and animal cells have cell membranes, but plant cells also have a cellulose cell wall, which gives them rigidity. Antigua and Barbuda B2B List The plant cell contains chloroplasts: organelles capable of synthesizing sugars from carbon dioxide, water and sunlight (photosynthesis) which makes them autotrophs (they produce their own food), and the animal cell does not possess them, therefore it cannot perform the photosynthesis process. • Cell wall: the plant cell has this wall that is formed by rigid cellulose, whereas the animal cell does not have it, it only has the cytoplasmic membrane that separates it from the environment.
All living things originate through cells. Cells do not arise spontaneously
• A single vacuole filled with fluid that occupies almost the entire interior of the plant cell. Whereas the animal cell has several vacuoles and they are smaller. Plant cells can reproduce through a process that results in cells equal to. The parents, this type of reproduction is called asexual reproduction. Animal cells can perform a type of reproduction called sexual reproduction. In which the offspring have characteristics of the parents. But are not identical to them. 4- difference between passive transport and active transport The difference is that PASSIVE TRANSPORT does not imply an energy expenditure for the cell. It is always carried out in favor of a gradient,
Absolutely all vital functions revolve around cells or their immediate contact.
that is, from higher to lower concentration of solutes. Instead, ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION requires energy that comes from the ATP molecule. 5- What is the function of the cell membrane? Phone Lead The cell membrane fulfills several functions: a) it delimits and protects cells; b) it is a selectively permeable barrier, since it prevents the free exchange of materials from one side to another, but at the same time provides the means to communicate one space with another; c) it allows the passage or transport of solutes from one side of the cell to the other, since it regulates the exchange of substances between the interior and the exterior of the cell following a concentration gradient;
