Chloroplasts are organelles found in plant cells that produce food and energy for the cell. They are the main site of photosynthesis in plant cells and help convert energy from the sun into sugars for the plant. More »

Chloroplasts are organelles that help plants convert water, energy and sunlight into food. Chloroplasts support photosynthesis by storing energy and synthesizing metabolic materials. 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 »

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 »

Central vacuoles are important organelles in plant cells that store sugar, ions and water for plants, regulate waste and help plants retain their shape. Central vacuoles exist in all plant cells, surrounded by a thin lay... More »

In plant cells, chloroplasts perform photosynthesis, a process that converts light energy from the sun into chemical energy in the form of glucose. Plants can later use this stored chemical energy to carry out activities... More »

According to Online Digital Education Connection, analogies for chloroplasts are power plants that imitate the function of chloroplasts in a plant cell to utilize solar energy or light in the processing of food for plant... More »
