Eucaryote Cell Structure Cell wall and membrane structure : - Eucaryotes contain sterol which strengthen the wall structure and make the membrane less flexible . - The cell wall of eucaryotes shows variations. e.g. - Fungi contain chitin - Plant cells contain cellulose - Animal cells do not have cell wall so that they are shear- sensitive and fragile.
