Plants are highly evolved eukaryotic organisms. Although both plants and animals belong to eukaryotes, they are different in certain characteristic features. For example, a plant cell possesses a well-developed cell wall and large vacuoles, while an animal cell lacks such structural parts. Besides these structural differences, a plant cell lacks centrioles and intermediate filaments, which are present in an animal cell.
A typical plant cell is made up of cytoplasm and organelles. In fact, all the organelles (except nucleus) and subcellular structures are found in the cytoplasm, which is enclosed by protective layers (the cell wall and cell membrane). As the figure 1 shows:
Figure 1. The Typical Structure of Plant Cell
Actually, every organelle has its own markers. These markers also are called organelle markers. Scientific studies have been done regarding the cell organelles and their functions by these markers. Each of the organelles of a plant cell has specific function, without which the cell cannot operate properly. As the table 1 shows, we present antibodies of specific organelle markers in plant cell.
