What type of carbohydrate can be found surrounding a plant cell?


Answer by  Rivka (217)

The type of carbohydrate surrounding a plant cell are polysaccharides known as cellulose. Cellulose is a chain of about 2000 united glucose units; glycogen, a chain of 12 to 18 units; amylose, a chain of 300 to 1000 glucose units, and amylopectin. They form the starch found in plants.

You have cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin. These give the cell structural support, protect it and act as a filtering mechanism, best case scenario it keeps toxins out of the cell.

I'm pretty sure that its starch, maybe its sucrose or something though. Were studying plants in biology now so I should know this
