Group 3 Question

3. How are the components in the cells identified after the development of Cell Theory and what are the components identified?
Please post your answers in the comments.


  1. They are identified through a microscope. The major parts of an animal cell are nucleus, cell membrane and cytoplasm while the major parts of a plant cell are nucleus, cell membrane, cytoplasm, cell wall, chloroplast and vacuoles.

  2. The components of the cells were identified by the microscope after the development of Cell Theory. The components identified are the cytoplasm, nucleus, cell membrane, chloroplasts, cell wall, nucleolus, ribosome, vesicle, rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER), Golgi apparatus, Cytoskeleton, smooth endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, vacuole, lysosome, centrioles within centrosome, etc.


  3. The components in the cells are identified through the use of a microscope. The major components in an animal cell are the nucleus, cytoplasm and cell membrane. For plant cells, they have extra components: a cell wall, vacuole and chloroplast.

    They were identified by a coarse and compound microscope. The components identified were the nucleus and cytoplasm.

  5. The components in the cells are identified by the microscope and the components identified are nucleus, cytoplasm, mitochondria, cell wall, chloroplast (for plants), cell membrane, ribosomes, vacuole, golgi apparatus.

  6. They were identified under a microscope. The organelles in the cells that were first discovered include nucleus, cell membrane and cytoplasm.
