What are two similarities of plant and animal cells?

Except for RBCs, both animal and plant cells have a nucleus. . Both have the same organelles, floating in the cytoplasm i.e. the organelles are the mitochondria, Golgi body, ribosmomes, and the endoplasmic reticulum. This answer compares and contrasts the features of a plant cell and an animal cell. A plant cell has a vacuole. This is a sac in which the cell stores water and nutrients. An animal cell has no vacuole as it does not make its own food and therefore does not need to store these nutrients in that way. A plant cell has chloroplasts. These are the instruments in which photosynthesis occurs (the process of plants making their own food), and where the pigment chlorophyll comes from, which makes the plant green. An animal cell has no chloroplasts as it does not need to make its own food. Both plant and animal cells have a nucleus. The nucleus controls the function of the cell and what takes place in it. All cells need this control. Both plant and animal cells have a cytoplasm. The cytoplasm is what fills up the cell and gives it shape. Many important metabolic reactions take place in the cytoplasm. All cells need these reactions to occur. The animal cell has a cell membrane and the plant cell has a cell wall. Both perform the same main function - they are a semipermeable membrane that controls the entry and exit of gases and substances to and from the cell. The cell wall, however, is more rigid and thick, while the cell membrane is more flexible and is thinner. The animal cell membrane is thin and flexible because the animal gets its strength from the skeleton structure of the animal. However, the plant does not have a bone structure, so its strength must come from the cellular level. The thick and rigid cell wall provides this strength.

How is cell division similar in animal cells and plant cells?

this happens because new cells are made in your body every.the old cells then die and are nolonger in your body . Over 1000 cells are in your body. they are new cellls in your body every day. New ones are made so it like a new baby.

What are the similarities between a plant cell and an animal cell?

Both plant and animal cells are eukaryotic cells and contain thefollowing: . Cell surface membrane . Mitochondria . Ribosomes . Nucleus (plus nucleolus) . Rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum . Golgi apparatus . DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, ATP, etc Ribosomes go through a process call synthesis of proteins. Thismake proteins, which are necessary to life in the cell. Another organelle that is necessary to the cell is the endoplasmicreticulum. There are two types of endoplasmic reticulum (ER),smooth and rough ER. Rough ER is the ER with ribosomes attached.The rough ER packages proteins made by the ribosomes attached.These proteins are sent out of the cell. Smooth ER has no ribosomesbut does other as well. Smooth ER detoxifies poisonous materials inthe cell. Lastly, both animal and plant cells have Golgi apparatuses. TheGolgi packages proteins to stay in the cell. These are theorganelles that plant and animal cells have in common. The plant cell is identical to an animal cell save the plant cell'scell wall and chloroplasts.

How is cytokenesis in plant cells similar to cytokenesis in animal cells?

Do you mean cytokinesis? Cytokinesis is the division of cytoplasm after the karyokinesis during cell division.

Cell furrows grows centripetally and cell plate centrifugally to divide the cell into two daughter cells. Hence, the cytokinesis are different in them.

What are the parts of the plant cell that are similar to the animal cell?

Animal cells do not have a cell wall. Instead of a cell wall, the plasma membrane (usually called cell membrane when discussing animal cells) is the outer boundary of animal cells. Animal tissues therefore require either external or internal support from some kind of skeleton. Frameworks of rigid cellulose fibrils thicken and strengthen the cell walls of higher plants. Plasmodesmata that connect the protoplasts of higher plant cells do not have a counterpart in the animal cell model. During telophase of mitosis, a cell plate is formed as the plant cell begins its division. In animal cells, the cell pinches in the center to form two cells; no cell plate is laid down. Centrioles are generally not found in higher plant cells, while they are found in animal cells. Animal cells do not have plastids, which are common in plant cells (chloroplasts). Both cell types have vacuoles, however, in animal cells vacuoles are very tiny or absent, while in plant cells vacuoles are generally quite large.
