Does a cheek cell have a cell wall?

Human Cheek Cell
As in all animal cells, the cells of the human cheek do not possess a cell wall. Unlike plant cells, the cytoplasm in an animal cell is denser, granular and occupies a larger space. The vacuole in an an animal cell is smaller in size, or absent.

Similarly, is there any cell wall in the cheek cells Why or why not?

There is no cell wall in the cheek cells. because cell walls prevent specialization and individual animal cells do not need protection from the out side environment.

Also, does a leaf cell have a cell wall? This Elodea leaf cell exemplifies a typical plant cell. It has a nucleus, and a stiff cell wall which gives the cell its box-like shape. The numerous green chloroplasts allow the cell to make its own food (by photosynthesis). Like animal cells, the cytoplasm of this plant cell is bordered by a cell membrane.

Consequently, what organelles are in cheek cells?

Cheek Cells Under the Microscope Requirements, Preparation and Staining

  • Cell membrane (outer boundary of the cell)
  • Cytoplasm (the fluid within the cell)
  • Nucleus (at the center of the cell and controls cell functions)
  • Organelles (e.g. mitochondria-Organelles are cell structures with specific functions)

How do you know that your cheek cells are eukaryotic?

Prokaryotic cells are the cells which have no nucleus or organelles enclosed within membranes. Generally, bacteria species such as archaebacteria and eubacteria are prokaryotic organisms. Cheek cells in humans are thus eukaryotic cells cause they have organelles and nucleus which is bounded within an enclosed membrane.
