Do plant cells have cholesterol?
Plant cells do not contain cholesterol, only animal cells. There is, however, a small amount of cholesterol in the plant membrane.
Animal cells have centrioles (involved in cell division) Some animal cells have other specialized compoundslike hemoglobin in red blood cells and cholesterol in others. Animal cells have small vacuoles and vesicles wilst plant cells have a large central vacuole. animal cells also have a flagellum, and lysosomes. plants dont.
Cells use carbohydrates and lipids as sources of energy. Lipids are also essential to the structure of cell membranes in the form of phospholipids and cholesterol. Cholesterol is also the precursor for vitamin D and steroid hormones. In plant cells, the polysaccharide cellulose forms the cell wall, and in arthropods, the polysaccharide chitin makes up their exoskeletons.
Answer -Animal cells have centrioles, which are involved in cell division. -Some animal cells have other specialized compounds; for example, hemoglobin in red blood cells and cholesterol in other cells. -Animal cells have small vacuoles and vesicles or none while plant cells have a large central vacuole. animal cells also have a flagellum, and lysosomes. plants dont. Animals have centrioles in the centrosome whereas plant cells have centrosomes but no centrioles. Centrosomes are important in…
No. Cashews don't have any cholesterol. All nuts (peanut, cashew, almond, pecan, walnut etc,) are free of cholesterol. In fact any food derived from plant sources is free of cholesterol. There are some other sterols in plant derived oils called sitosterol and sitrostanol which function differently from cholesteril. Actually these plant sterols help block absorption of dietary cholesterol (from animal sources) from the gut into the bloodsteam and hence are considered healthy. So the definitive…
Low cholesterol can make a person more susceptible to cancer. Cholesterol is a major component of cell walls and being deficient in cholesterol can make it easier for cancer cells to get into cells. This is very over simplified. This could also signal a problem with your liver or a diet drastically devoid of cholesterol.
LDL (low-density-lipoproteins)- transport cholesterol to body cells where they are used in various ways. It is also called the bad cholesterol. HDL (high-density-lipoproteins)- transport cholesterol from the tissue cells (or arteries) to the liver for disposal in bile. For this purpose it is called the good cholesterol.
Animal cells have lysosomes, plant cells don't. Plant cells have a cell wall made out of cellulose, animal cells don't. Animal cells have many small vacuoles, plant cells have one large vacuole. Plant cells have chloroplasts and chlorophyll, animal cells don't. Animal cells have centrioles, plant cells don't.
Is found in plant cell walls and accounts for their strength answer a cholesterol b phospholipids c glycogen d cellulose?
Plant Cells have cell walls and Animal Cells don't, Plant cells have chloroplasts where as Animal cells don't, Plant cells are more rectangular and Animal cells are sort of round, Plant cells use chloroplasts for food, Animal cells use mitochondria Plant cells have one large vacuole, where as Animal cells have a lot of small ones, Plant cells lack lysosomes, while Animal cells have them, Plant cells have a central vacuole and Animal cell don't
first of all plant cells have 1 vacuole, while animal cells have more then 1. also, plant cells contain chloroplast, which is key for photosynthesis, plant cells have this, while animal cells don't. Animal cells also contain lysosomes, plant cells do not contain this. Plant cells have a cell wall, where animal cells only have a cell membrane.
By not having a cell wall (cellulose) the animal cells are not rigid. When the cells are not rigid, they can move. If animal cells would have cells walls, animals wouldn't be able to move and be static as a plant. Also cells explode without cell wall. Actually plant cells do move...the roots move slowly down into the soil and the leaves move toward the light. Animal cells do not explode without a cell wall…
Yes it is - the differences between plant and animal cells are essentially that plant cells have a cell wall and chloroplast (which animal cells do not have) and animal cells have centrioles (which help to make up the cytoskeleton of the cell, and which plant cells do not have). You can say in general that plant cells do not have flagellum, where animal cells do, but there are flagellum on plant reproductive cells. So…
