31+ Animal Cell And Plant Cell Background. Although animal cells lack these cell structures, both of them have nucleus, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, etc. Plant and animal cells have several differences and similarities.
10.plant cells have plasmodesmata which links pores in the cell wall allow and communication between adjacent cells unlike animal cells. An animal cell has very small vacuoles but no rigid cell wall, a pliable and fluid cell membrane surrounds it. Plant cells also have a large central vacuole, while animal cells either have small vacuoles or none.
The similarities between the two have maintained themselves throughout history and the process of evolution because the circumstances each cell type faced were similar and needed similar tools.
Plant and animal cells are similar in that both are eukaryotic cells. The vacuole is like a lunchbox it holds food and water just like a vacuole does. 9.cells of higher plants lack centrioles unlike animal cells. Instead, multicellular animals have other structures that provide support to their animal cells have a variety of different organelles that work together to allow the cell to perform its functions.
