Animal cells are eukaryoticcells, meaning that they have a true nucleus and specialized structures called organelles that carry out different functions.
There are three types of cells in an animal. Nerve cells electrochemically send information between sensory receptors and the central nervous system. Blood cells carry oxygen to the body’s tissues and collect carbon dioxide. They also carry hormones, enzymes, and vitamins to different parts of the body. Muscle cells comprise the three different types of muscles: skeletal, cardiac, and smooth types. These cells are shaped differently and enable these muscles to help our bodies function properly.
Explain cell parts and what they do look like and how important the are.
Nucleus is a spherical body which contains many organelles, including the nucleolus.The nucleuscontrols many of the functions of the cell by controlling protein synthesis and contains DNA in chromosomes. The nucleus is surrounded by the nuclear membrane.
Mitochondriaare known as the powerhouses of the cell. They are organelles that act like a digestive system which takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy rich molecules for the cell. The biochemical processes of the cell are known as cellular respiration.
Difference between plant and animal cells. The Plant Cells are usually larger, which has fixed and rectangular shape, whileanimal cells are comparatively smaller in size, irregular and round. The nucleus is present in both the cells, but in Plant cell it lies on one side while it is present in thecenter of the Animal cell.
