Cell wall


Plant cells contain cell wall which is mainly composed of cellulose. Yeast is another unicellular organism having cell wall but in yeast cell wall is made up of chitin.
Some bacterial cells also possess cell wall. In those bacteria, cell wall is made up of amino acids and disaccharides and is called as peptidoglycan cell wall.

Thus, Plant cells are unique in having cell wall primarily made up of cellulose.
