Plant   Cell                           VS                             Animal Cell Cell Membrane: It is a semi-permeable barrier, allowing only a few molecules to move across it.  Electron microscopic studies of cell membrane shows the lipid bi-layer model of the plasma membrane, it also known as the fluid mosaic model.  The cell membrane is made up of phospholipids which has polar(hydrophillic) heads and non-polar (hydrophobic) tails.      Cell Membrane: forms the outer covering of the cell, and is semi-permeable. Nucleus: Cell nucleus is referred to as the control center of the cell. The genetic material of the organism is present in the cell. The replication of DNA, and synthesis of RNA occurs in the nucleus of the cell. It also regulates the activities of the other cellular organelles.  Nucleus: Cell nucleus is referred to as the control center of the cell.

They have digestive enzymes and are involved in clearing the in wanted waste materials from the cell. They also engulf damaged materials like the damaged cells,and invading microorganisms and digest food particles. Lysosome: They are referred to as the suicide bags of the cell.

Cytoplasm: The fluid matrix that fills the cell is the cytoplasm.  The cellular organelles are suspended in this matrix of the cytoplasm. This matrix maintains the pressure of the cell, ensures the cell doesn't shrink or burst.   Cytoplasm: The fluid matrix that fills the cell is the cytoplasm.  The cellular organelles are suspended in this matrix of the cytoplasm.

Its main function if to produce energy for cell by the process of cellular respiration. The energy produced is ATP.  Mitochodrion: The mitochondria is referred to as the power house of the cell. Its main function if to produce energy for cell by the process of cellular respiration. The energy produced is ATP.  Chloroplast: Only plants have chloroplast to make their own food. Golgi Complex: A flattened, layered, sac-like organelle. It produces the membranes that surround the lysosomes. Centriole: Present on animal cells and in some low form plants.
