Functional Anatomy of Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cells


1. List five characteristics of:

  • Prokaryotic cells
  • Eukaryotic cells
  • Comparing Of Prokaryotic And Eukaryotic Cells: An Overview

    Remember, there are exceptions to every rule. We are going with statements that should begin with "For the most part..." or "As far as we know at this time..."

    Prokaryotic cells are similar in their chemical composition and chemical reactions.

    Prokaryotic cells lack membrane-enclosed organelles (including a nucleus) while eukaryotic cells have a membrane-bound nucleus and other organelles.

    Peptidoglycan is found in bacterial cell walls but not in archaea or eukaryotic cell walls.
