All living things, including plants and animals, are made up of cells. All cells are in turn, are made up of different specific parts. For example, both organisms contain nuclei, which are like the cell brains, the control center. Another basic piece of a cell is the cell membrane. The cell membrane is a semi - permeable border, which means it controls what gets into the cell and what doesnt. They both contain mitochondria, which stores energy. Mitochondria later converts the stored energy into usable compounds. A fourth organelle found in both types of organisms are the ribosomes, which synthesize protein for growth and repair. They can be found floating around by themselves in the cytoplasm, or attached to the Endoplasmic Reticulum, or E.R. However, living plant and animal cells are very different from a bacterial cell. Plants are different from bacterial cells because theEndoplasmic Reticulum, or E....
