Work Step by Step

The differences are found between animal and plant cells with vacuoles (plants have large central, animals have smaller and multiple vacuoles), cell wall (only found in plant cells), chloroplasts (only found in plant cells), centrioles (only found in animal cells), and plasmodesmata (only found in plant cells). Animal cells can differ from each other as well based on their function. Cells found in lungs that help move mucus would be expected to have many cilia whereas sperm cells do not have cilia but do have a flagellum to allow for greater motility. Some single celled eukaryotes (like amoeba) may have a need for more microfilaments so that they can move via pseudopodia. Consider the cell type and its function and this should help you remember the parts that are found within the cell and relative amounts of each.
