difference between plasma membrane and cell wall

  • -14

Cell wall is found on most plant cells and fungi.Cell wall in these cells covers the cell membrane and protects it(in addition to performing several other functions-like providing mechanical strength).Cell wall in plant cells is made of cellulose,pectin,lignin and suberin while that of fungi is made of chitin.

Cell membrane(also called plasma membrane or plasmalemma) is found universally in all living cells.It is made of Phospholipids(fats) and glycoproteins and is semipermeable.

Gives rigidity, shape and protection to plant cell.

Allows only selected materials to move in and out of the cell.

plama memrane is present in animal and plant cell,but cellwall is present only in plant cell.

samhita it actualy hlpd alot!!! :*

cell wall occurs only in plants where as plasma membrane is found in both plants and animal cells.

 1. Cell wall is only found in plant and bacterial cell.                                             1. Plasma membrane is found in all cells including plant and animal                                                                                                                                        cell .
2. Cell wall are permeable membrane .                                                                    2. Plasma membrane is a selectively permeable membrane .
3. Cell wall is made up of cellulose .                                                                         3. Plasma membrane is made up of lipids and proteins  .
4. Cell wall is a rigid .                                                                                                4. Cell wall is a fluid like structure .

Plasma membrane is found in both plant and animal cells.
Cell wall is found in only plant cells.
Cell wall is only permeable
Plasma membrane is selectively permeable.
Cell is made up of cellulose.
Plasma membrane is made up of lipids and proteins.(inner proteins are called intrinsic proteins and outer proteins are called extrinsic proteins. It is also called bilayer.)
