4. Distinguish between intracellular and extracellular digestion?
The differences between intracellular and extracellular digestion are as follows
|Intracellular digestion||Extracellular digestion|
|The process of digestion of food takes place inside the cells||The process of digestion of food takes place outside the cells in the alimentary canal.|
|Only a few enzymes are involved in the process of digestion||A number of enzymes are involved in extracellular digestion|
|The products of digestion are diffused into the cytoplasm||The products of digestion across the intestinal wall into the body parts|
|Mostly seen in unicellular animals||Mostly seen in multicellular animals|
