Flashcards in Structures of Plant Cells Deck (14):
1

Structures never found in plant cells

Lysosomes, centrioles, and flagella

2

Structures never found in animal cells

Plastids (chloroplasts), central vacuole, and cell wall

3

Large central vacuole information

Found in mature plant cells, when filled with water it creates turgor pressure to give strength and support, and a storage area for organic compounds

4

Three types of plastids

Chloroplasts, chromoplasts, leukoplasts

5

Chloroplasts are only found in what

Plants and other unicellular organisms that perform photosynthesis

6

Chloroplasts get their energy from what

The sun, and convert it into chemical energy

7

Are chloroplasts surrounded by an outer and inner membrane

Yes

8

Physical structure of Chlroplast

Large stacks of membranes (called thylakoids)

9

Why are chloroplasts green

Contain the green pigment (chlorophyll) which is required for photosynthesis

10

What color pigments do chromoplasts have

All colors except green

11

What color pigments do Leukoplasts have

Have no color

12

Are leukoplasts storage plastids

Yes

13

Main function of cell wall

To provide support and protection to cell

14

What is the cell wall made of

Cellulose (a touch carb fiber)
