The function of the nucleus in the plant cell is to store the plant's DNA and control the activity of the cell through protein synthesis. The nucleus is enclosed by the nuclear membrane, which has pores for the passage o... More »

Animal cells do not have a cell wall. Instead, animal cells have a cell membrane that protects the organelles inside of the cell and allows selective compounds to move in and out of the cell. More » Science Biology Cells

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 »

In a eukaryotic cell, the final stage of protein synthesis takes place in the cytoplasm after the initial stage, which happens in the nucleus. In a prokaryotic cell, there is no need for the second stage of the process. More »

The function of the nuclear membrane in an animal cell is to hold the DNA inside the nucleus in order to protect it from surrounding substances. The nuclear membrane also regulates which substances can enter or exit the ... More »

The nucleus controls protein synthesis in a cell's cytoplasm in the sense that the genetic codes contained in the nucleus determine the sequence of amino acids that are assembled to build the proteins. This is the only a... More »

The nucleolus contains all of the information needed for DNA replication, flow of proteins and RNA, all while controlling the synthesis of protein and cell replication. The nucleolus has several parts: the nuclear envelo... More » Science Biology Cells
