These diagrams of an animal cell below will give you more information and knowledge about the structure of the cell, looking from its differences from plant cell. Animal cells are generally smaller than plant cells and lack a cell wall and chloroplasts. Organelles in an animal cell are suspended in a fluid called the cytoplasm. A cell membrane encloses the cytoplasm and all contents of the animal cell. This diagram below of animal cell structure shows most of the main features of a typical animal cell.
The cell membrane also called the plasma membrane encloses the animal cell and its contents. It separates the inside of the cell from the outside. It is a selectively permeable membrane that monitors what enters and exits the cell. The cell membrane is mostly made up of special proteins (membrane proteins) and lipids (phospholipid). Animal cells also contain structures such as centrioles, lysosomes, cilia, and flagella that are not typically found in plant cells. Animal organisms can be composed of trillions of cells. In the human body, there are hundreds of different types of cells.
The most important structures of animal cells are shown in the diagrams above, which provide a clear illustration of the structures of the cell. Print the diagram and make sure you are well guided in identifying animal cell!
