Differences between Plant Cell and Animal Cell - QS Study
QS Study

Differences between Plant Cell and Animal Cell :

Plant cell

  1. Most plant cells are bounded by a non-living cell wall made of cellulose.
  2. Different types of plastids are present.
  3. Usually, one or more vacuoles are present.
  4. Normally no centrosome is present in the plant cell.
  5. Golgi bodies are rarely seen in the plant cell under the microscope.
  6. In plant cell reserve food is mainly starch.

Animal cell

  1. No cell wall is present in animal cell.lt is surrounded only by the plasma membrane.
  2. Plastids are not available here.
  3. Except for some lower group of animals most of the animal cell does not have any vacuole.
  4. Animal cell always bears centrosome.
  5. Golgi bodies are frequently seen here under the microscope.
  6. In animal cell reserve food is mainly glycogen.
