PLANT CELL WALLS
A Plant Cell Wall has many important jobs. The
main two jobs it has are to provide protection and
support for the plant.
The Cell Wall: Gives the plant it’s actual shape.
It acts as a gate keeper, determining what can
come in and out of the cell, in order to keep the
cell protected.
BACTERIA CELL WALL
Bacteria cell wall protects the cell from
osmotic shock and physical damage. In
addition, it also confers rigidity and shape
of bacterial cells.
Although bacterial cell walls all consist of
peptidoglycan, also known as murein or
mucopeptide, they differ in certain
properties in two groups of bacteria,
namely gram-negative and gram-positive.
CELL WALL FUNCTIONS AND STRUCTURES
Cell Wall functions for Plant Cells consist of cellulose. Cellulose is a structural
carbohydrate and is consider a complex sugar because it is used in both protection
and structure.
Cell Wall Functions for Bacterial Cell Wall consist of Prokaryotes have a rigid cell
wall. The cell wall is an essential structure that protects the cell protoplast from
mechanical damage and from osmotic rupture or lysis.
