The process by which the glucose get past the cell wall is osmosis which includes the transmission a substance from higher concentration to lower concentration.

What part of the cell is like a gate?

In this analogy, the cell membrane is like a wall, keeping what's in the cell inside, and what is outside of the cell out. However, there are "gates" called receptors. Receptors are large protein molecules embedded in the membrane, with one end outside and one end inside. Different gates, or receptors, permit certain things to enter. For example a glucose receptor lets glucose enter the cell. When a glucose molecule passes a glucose receptor, the glucose molecule is attracted to the receptor by an electric charge. It then binds to the receptor, but now the balance of the charges in the protein molecule has been changed, so the protein molecule changes shape. When it changes shape, it pulls the glucose into the cell and then lets go of the glucose. Now the protein is free to return to its original shape, and the glucose is inside the cell.


Why do the cells need glucose?

The body needs to store glucose as a polysaccharide because if it is store as single molecules of glucose (non-phosphorylated), it will leave the cells and be sent out of the body via kidneys. So the cell can either store glucose as Glucose-6-phosphate or polysaccharide. If G6P is stored inside cells, it will readily be degraded via the glycolysis pathway. So putting it in a polysaccharide prevents 1.) removal from body and 2.) rapid metabolism of glucose.


What is a outer supportive structure of a plant cell?

The cell wall supports and protects the plant cell.


What is a structure that plant and fungus cells have that help keep from bursting?

The plant cells have a strong rigid cell wall on the outside of the cell membrane. This cell wall stops the cell from bursting when it absorbs water through the process of osmosis.


What organelles does a plant have that an animal cell doesn't?

What is the function of the cell wall and chloroplast?

Chloroplast is a coin shaped thing that takes the light from the sun and turns it into glucose for the rest of the cell. The cell wall, obviously, protects the contents of the cell.

Plant cell part protects the cell membrane?

cell wall (which is made up of cellulose, which is made up of beta glucose)


A carbohydrate forming the cell wall is what?

Cell walls are composed of cellulose, what is colloquially called "fiber". It is a polysaccharide made of glucose monomers. It has beta glucose chains contrasting with the alpha glucose of starch. Because of its bond structure, the chain is indigestible for most organisms and provides rigid support.

What is a good analogy for cell wall?

It could be a gate. It is a gate because the door is the cell membrane. See you need to get past the cell wall before the cell membrane.
