...capisci l'italiano? NO?! Get in touch and learn it with me! Ti aspetto! ^_^

to complete the answer above with a detail that I find quite important, I'm going to add that the "power central" of the 2 types of cells is totally different: in the mammalian cells we find the mitochondrion, in the plant cells the chloroplast.

Hi Mohammad, There are many differences between plant and mammalian cells, and several articles on Google have tables that may help you easily remember them. First of all, plant cells have a cell wall (formed of cellulose) which mammalian cells don't have. Therefore, plant cells hace 2 plasma membranes (cell wall and cell membrane), while mammalian cells only have 1 (cell membrane). Moreover, plant cells often present a rectangular or regular shape, while mammalian cells have more rounded or irregular shape. Considering the main organelles, they are all present in both cells. However, animal cells can present one or more small vacuoles, while plant cells usually have one large vacuoles that takes up 90% of the cell volume. Hope this helps!
