Animal cells contain structures such as lysosomes and centrioles that plant cells do not. Animal cells are also generally smaller and have more variety in shape than do plant cells. More »

Plant cells differ from animal cells in their possession of chloroplasts, a cell wall, a large central vacuole and their relative lack of an internal cytoskeleton. Plant cells gain their form and rigidity from the pressu... More » Science Biology Cells

A unique way to make an edible plant cell model is out of pizza dough, using the toppings to represent the different parts of the cell. This is a craft that can easily be done at home as a science project or on a larger ... More »

Animal cells have many distinct characteristics when compared to plant cells, including their varied shapes, their many types of organelles, their centrioles, cilia and lysosomes, and their cell-to-cell junctions. Animal... More »

There are several key differences between plant and animal cells, such as cell wall structure, presence or absence of plastids, lysosomes and centrioles and shape of vacuoles. These characteristics are the primary and mo... More »

Plant cells do not contain lysosomes. Lysosomes are present in the cells of animals, and they are responsible for breaking down waste and other cell debris. More »

The vacuole in cells have three main functions which are to provide the plant with support or rigidity, a storage area for nutrients and waste matter and can decompose complex molecules, according to British Society for ... More »
