An Elodea cell consists of a semi-permeable cell wall, which contains a membrane, enveloping the cytoplasm, in which a nucleus, vacuole, chloroplasts and mitochondria are located. Some of these structures can be clearly ... More »

Human epithelial cells, which are animal cells, and elodea cells, which are plant cells, share many structures because both are eukaryotic cells, or cells with a membrane-bound nucleus. Common structures in animal and pl... More »

Chloroplasts in the cells of elodea and other plants perform photosynthesis, converting sunlight into biochemical energy stored as carbohydrates. Both plants and the animals that consume them require carbohydrates to fue... More »

Similarities shared between mitochondria and chloroplasts include having both an inner and outer membrane and a phospholipid bilayer. Both organelles produce energy, in the form of ATP, for the cell through chemiosmosis.... More »

Eukaryotic cells are advanced cells that have, at minimum, a cellular membrane surrounding cytoplasm, a cytoskeleton and membrane-covered organelles. More advanced eukaryotic cells also contain a nucleus that protects ge... More » Science Biology Cells

According to Hartnell College, cellular respiration takes place in the cytoplasm of cells and inside the mitochondria. Mitochondria are often called the cell’s “power plant,” because most of the process of cellular respi... More »

The cheek cell has a nucleus and also contains cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and lysosomes. In a biology lab, students may look at or study a cheek cell under a light microscope. More »
