Higher plant cells versus animal cells Definitions Cell theory-- Light microscopes-- Electron microscopes-- Prokaryotic —having a cell or cells that lack a distinct nucleus and other membrane bound organelles. Eukaryotic —pertaining to cells having distinct membrane bound organelles. Including a nucleus with chromosomes. Organelles —a membrane bound body in the cytoplasm of a cell; there are several kinds each with a specific function. Cell walls —the relatively rigid boundary of cells of plants and certain other organisms. Protoplasm-- Cytoplasm —the protoplasm of a cell exclusive of the nucleus. Middle lamella —a layer of material rich in pectin that cements two adjacent cell walls together....
