Is there any other cell type that has a cell wall than the cell?

Answer and explanation: Algae, Bacteria and fungi all have cell walls. The cell wall is an extra layer that exists outside the cell membrane.

What other cell types have a cell walls?

Cell walls are a thick, rigid membrane surrounding cells that is located outside the plasma membrane. They provide additional protection and support. They can be found in bacteria, archaea and fungi as well as plants and algae. Cell membranes are present in animals and other protists, but they do not surround cells walls.

The next question is: What is the cell wall made from? Cellulose is the most abundant macromolecule in plants. Cellulose fibers consist of long, linear polymers made up of hundreds of glucose molecules. These fibers are known as microfibrils because they aggregate into bundles of approximately 40.

What 4 types of organisms have cell walls?

Cell walls can be found in plants, fungi and certain prokaryotes (bacterial-type cells). Complex polysaccharides (sugar based polymers) are the main components of cell walls in plants. They include molecules like cellulose, pectin, and hemicellulose.

Are cells of human beings equipped with cell walls?

Because it would be redundant, human cells don't have a cell walls. Plant cells are different from animal cells. They have a large vacuole where water is stored. This makes them turgid, or swollen, to provide strong structure.
