View Plant Cell Diagram And Its Functions Background. The typical characteristics that define the plant cell include cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin, plastids its function in plant cells is not clearly understood. The plant cell refers to the structural component of the plant.
The diagram shows the structures visible within a cell at high magnification. Plant cells have a nucleus with chromosomes and dna, and they have mitochondria. Plant cells can be defined as the eukaryotic cells with a true nucleus along with specialized structures called organelles that carry out certain specific functions.
The plant cell has many different features that allow it to carry out its functions.
These double membrane bound organelles contain the green pigment chlorophyll, which captures sunlight energy, so that the cell can produce its own food, a process called photosyntheses. This page includes a diagram of a plant cell together with notes about the parts of plant cells including these notes include links to further information about the structures and functions of the parts of plant cells. Their distinctive features include primary cell walls containing cellulose, hemicelluloses and pectin, the presence of plastids with the capability to perform photosynthesis and store starch. Like all organisms, plants have cells.
