Describe the key components of the plant cell wall and relate structure to function
In the primary (growing) plant cell wall, the major carbohydrates are cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin.
The extracellular matrix (ECM) is the extracellular part of animal tissue that usually provides structural support to the animal cells in addition to performing various other important functions. The extracellular matrix is the defining feature of connective tissue in animals.
