Vacuole

Vacuole Vacuoles are the compartments within the protoplast bounded by the membrane tonoplast containing sap (aqueous solution). Vacuoles are present in both plant and animal cells. Both they are most abundant in plant cell. In plants, they occupy major part of the cell. Thus, the remaining intracellular structures form a thin peripheral layer. The numbers [Continue]

The Cell Wall And Its Structure

­The Cell Wall Cell wall is a characteristic of a plant cell and it distinguishes it from the animal cell. The cell wall is considered as an Ergastic Substance, i.e., secreted by the living substance (protoplasm) but it-self is non-living. The synthesis of cell wall is controlled by Golgi complex. Three layers of cell wall [Continue]
