    two major groups that cells can be grouped into to. These are eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. All eukaryotic cells contain a plasma membrane, as well as cytoplasm and organelles such as mitochondria, rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER), Golgi apparatus, smooth ER, ribosomes, a nucleus which is surrounded by a double membrane known as the nuclear envelope, and secretory vesicles. There are some eukaryotic cells which contain more organelles as well as theses. Some eukaryotic cells, specifically in plants

    Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cells Cells are the basic building block of life. Cells can be either Eukaryotic or Prokaryotic cells. Organism can only contain either one but not both of them. Prokaryotic cells are usually much smaller than Eukaryotic and are less complex. Bacteria are made up of one or more prokaryotic cells. Bacteria are made up of one or more prokaryotic cells. While Eukaryotic cell are found inside plant and animal life. Eukaryotic are more advanced and larger. Prokaryotic cell

    Prokaryotic Cells All living things are made of cells, and cells are the smallest units that can be alive. Life on Earth is classified into five kingdoms, and they each have their own characteristic kind of cell. However the biggest division is between the cells of the prokaryote kingdom (monera, the bacteria) and those of the other four kingdoms (animals, plants, fungi and protoctista), which are all eukaryotic cells. Prokaryotic cells are smaller and simpler than eukaryotic

    Introduction In this lab, we observed different prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, and then we observed a termite gut to see the different unicellular microorganisms that it contained. The purpose of this lab is to observe living and prepared bacterial cells, then describe their morphology, observe and describe the primary features of the eukaryotic cell, and to investigate and observe the organisms involved in a symbiotic relationship. By observing these things, we are hoping to find out what we

    Cells are the most basic unit of life known in the world today. While they are basic and small, they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Two key cell types include prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Both living cell types work to form every living organism in the environment. However, prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells hold many key factors that differentiate them from one another. These key differences include shape, domain, transportation, division as well as many other structural and functional

  • The Function Of Prokaryotic Cells

    diagram shows a prokaryotic cell. These cells have a simple cell structure and are thought to have been the first cells to have appeared on earth (Clark, 1998). Most prokaryotic cells are single-celled and none are found in living animals, it is mainly bacteria or algae that it is found in. The chemicals and enzymes are contained in the cytoplasm and are used for the cells growth. The cytoplasm is a jellylike mixture that is packaged into the membrane that forms the cell boundary. This cell does not contain

  • Comparing Prokaryotic And Eukaryotic Cells

    1. Compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Be sure to address cell structure, replication (including DNA replication) and gene expression. The cell structure of prokaryotic organisms is small, only about 1-10 microns in length, and they are also single celled. Prokaryotes contain circular DNA which is held in the nucleoid because they lack a nucleus. The specific organisms that have circular DNA are: mitochondrial, bacterial (eubacteria), and Archaea (Methanobacteria, Halobacteria

  • Cell : The Life Cycle Of The Cell And Prokaryotic Cell

    724 Words  | 3 Pages

    The cell cycle is the lifespan of the cell from the time it is formed until it divides into two daughter cells. Cell division is the continuity of life based upon the reproduction of the cell. The genetic information that a cell contains is called the cell’s genome. Prokaryotic cells consist of only one genetic molecule. While eukaryotic cells consist of many genetic molecules, or DNA. Chromosomes are the structures that DNA is packed into, this makes replication and distribution of so much DNA easy

  • Similarities Between Prokaryotic And Eukaryotic Cells

    770 Words  | 4 Pages

    Cells were divided into two, which are, prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Examples of prokaryotic cells are Bacteria and Archae, while the examples of eukaryotic cells are Protists, Fungi, plants and animals. All cells share certain basic features, but the major difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells is their DNA. Thus, these two cells have different features on DNA transcription and protein synthesis mechanisms. The general processes of transcription may be applied to both prokaryotic

    Organisms are made up of cells which were considered as the basic unit of life. After the invention of microscope, Robert Hooke first discovered cells by looking at a dead cell from an oak tree. His finding brought the study of cell biology. According to the cell theory formulated by lots of scientists, all living organisms are composed of at least one cell which is the basic unit of life, and all cells come from pre-existing living cells. Cell is a wide type of substance that have variations between
