Asked in Cell Biology (cytology)
What rigid outer covering is not found in animal cells?
Cell walls; plant cells possess a rigid cell wall constructed of cellulose. Animal cells do not possess a rigid cell wall. ...
What will happen if there is no cell wall in animal cell?
Animal doesn't have cell wall, they have only cell membrane. Cell wall is a rigid structure found in plant and some microbe. ...
Asked in Biology, Cell Biology (cytology)
What does the cell wall do for a cell?
A cell wall protects and supports the cell. The cell wall is a rigid layer of nonliving material, mostly made of cellulose. It is the outside layer of a plant cell and some other organisms. It is very strong, but certain materials, such as water and air, can pass through easily. It also helps keep cells rigid and boxlike. ...

What is a cell wall and what are the functions of cell wall?
The cell wall is the outer coating of the cell. It keeps the shape of the cell rigid. ...
Asked in Cell or Plasma Membranes
Are cell membranes found in the plant or animal cell?
Cell membranes are found in both animal and plant cells. Plants have an extra, rigid layer called a cell wall as well. ...
Asked in Genetics
Are all cells surrounded by a cell wall?
No, but all cells have a cell membrane. A cell wall is a rigid structure found surrounding the cell membrane. In plant cells, this is made of cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin. Bacteria have a peptidoglycan cell wall. Animal cells do not have a cell wall. ...
