Cell Differences Problems Problem : Which of the following cellular components are not shared between plant and animal cells? Mitochondria Nucleus Chloroplasts Vacuoles Cell membrane Endoplasmic Reticulum Golgi apparatus Lysosomes Peroxisomes Cell wall Solution for Problem 1 >> In the list all structures are shared between plant and animal cells except cholorplasts, vacuoles, and cell wall. Problem : Why are chloroplasts found in plant cells and not in animal cells? Solution for Problem 2 >> Plant cells use sunlight for energy. In order to effectively use the light, it must be converted within the cell. Chloroplasts are structures that perform this function. Animal cells do not use this special mechanism for energy and therefore do not need the additional structure.
