What parts are found in plant cells that are absent in animal cells?

Question asked by: knowitall

There are many similarities of course but also many differences between the cells of animals and plants, the division between the two forms of life was of course so ancient that there are major splits, and the role and function of each major line is so profoundly different.

Plant cells contain cell walls and also they contains plastids and glyoxysomes.

The cell wall is the major difference, of course.

The other two big differences are that plant cells have chloroplasts, which is what gives the green appearance to the plant.

Finally they have a vacuole - one large storage space whereas the animal cell may have lots of small vacuoles.
