Prokaryotic Cells Eukaryotic Cells
Small cells <5µm Larger cells >10m
Always unicellular Often Multicellular
No Nucleus or any membrane-bound organelles Always have a nucleus and other
membrane-bound organelles: Double
membranes e.g. nucleus, mitochondria and
chloroplasts; Single membranes e.g.: Golgi
complex and Endoplasmic reticulum
DNA is circular without proteins…

Chloroplasts are between1-5 µm
A granum is a stack of thylakoid
Found in cytoplasm of plant cells.
Has an inner membrane which is less permeable.
Inside a stack of granum there is chlorophyll
Photosynthesis takes place in the chlorophyll and
the stroma
Contain starch, DNA and ribosomes…
