Describe the cell structure of fungus in detail



Fungus cells are eukaryotic. These cells contain all the eukaryotic organelles except plastids, eg., Nucleus, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, Golgi bodies, etc. A fungal cell wall contains mostly chitin. Plasmalemma bears coiled membranous outgrowths called lomasomes. Nuclei are small and connected to endoplasmic reticulum. Nuclear division involves formation of internal spindle. Vacuoles are small. Near the hyphal tips, the cytoplasm contains small vesicles called chitosomes. Food reserve is glycogen and oil.
