The vacuoles are very large vesicles may occupy 90% of the cell volume, moving all the organelle to the other side of the cell. Its function is to store substances, in addition to helping to maintain the shape of the cell.

The cell wall is a layer formed mainly by cellulose, which is located on the outside of the plasma membrane. It is a rigid structure that protects cells and gives them shape.

The chloroplasts, such as mitochondria, organelles are surrounded by a double membrane. The inner membrane presents some branches towards the interior (lamellae), where sacs (thylakoids) are formed that are grouped together forming grains. This membrane contains pigments, such as chlorophyllwhich allow it to carry out photosynthesis.
