  1. Plants cells have a cell wall over the cell membrane,whereas,animals cells lack cell wall.
  2. In plant cells, there is a single large vacuole present in the middle, whereas, in animals cell,there are more than one vacuoles.
  3. Plant cells possess plastids, but, animal cells don't.
  4. Animal cells have centrioles, whereas, plant cells don't.
  5. Plant cells are more square shaped, animal cells are more round
  6. Plant cells have chlorophyll for Photosynthesis (make their own food), and animal cells don't

Adeno-associated virus (AAV) has been widely used by scientists to deliver exogenous genetic material into cultured cells or live animal models. AAV can infect both dividing and non-dividing cells. Multiple AAV serotypes (AAV-1, AAV-2, AAV-3, AAV-4, AAV-5, AAV-6, AAV-8, AAV-9, AAV-DJ/8 and AAV-DJ) enable AAVs to efficiently infect with broad specificity.
