The main difference between a plant cell from an animal is a way of eating.Plant cells - autotrophs, they are themselves able to synthesize organic substances necessary for their livelihoods, for this they only need light.Animals same cell - heterotrophs;they need to live a substance they get from food.

However, among the animals there are exceptions.For example, green flagellates: the day they are capable of photosynthesis, but in the dark, ready to feed on organic matter.
plant cell, unlike animals, has a cell wall and can not, therefore, to change its shape.Animal cells can expand and evolve, asno cell wall.
differences are observed in the process
of division: the division of plant cell it forms a partition;animal cell divides to form the waist.
plant cells contain plastids: chloroplasts leucoplasts, chromoplasts.Animal cells do not contain such plastids.By the way, thanks to the plastids, carrying a chlorophyll and photosynthesis in plant cells.
cells in both plants and animals have vacuoles.But large plants is numerically small cavity, and the animals are numerous and small.Vacuoles stockpile plant nutrients, whereas animals are digestive vacuoles and the contractile function.
synthesis of adenosine triphosphate required to produce energy in plants occurs in mitochondria and plastids, the animals only in the plastids.
All kinds of cells are a special type of carbohydrate reserve.In plant cells is starch, the animals - glycogen.Starch and glycogen are different in chemical composition and structure.
in the animal cells have centrioles, from plant cells do not.
Nutrients plant cell stored in the cell sap, filling the vacuoles;nutrients animal cells are located in the cytoplasm of the cell and have the form of inclusions.
