  • Prokaryotic Cell Varitation
    • Prokaryotic cell replicate by a process called binary fission
    • Binary Fission
      • Step 1
        • The circular DNA and plasmids replicate
        • The main DNA loop is only repilcate once but plasmids can be replicated lots of times
      • Step 2
        • The cells get bigger and the DNA loops move to 'opposite poles'ends of the cell
      • Step 3
        • The cytoplasm begins to divide and new cell wall being to form
      • Step 4
        • The cytoplam divides and two daughter cells are produced
        • Each daughter cell has one copy of circular DNA, but can have a variable number of plasmids
