  • Extremely small cells (less than 2um in diameter)
  • DNA is circular
  • No nucleus- DNA free in cytoplasm
  • Cell wall made of polysaccharide (Peptidoglycan)
  • Few organelles, no mitochondria
  • ATP produced in mesosomes
  • Small Ribosomes
  • May have Flagella
  • e.g bacteria

  • Larger cells (about 10-100um diameter)
  • DNA is linear
  • Nucleus present- DNA inside nucelus
  • No cell wall (animals), cellulose cell wall (plants) or chitin cell wall (fungi)
  • Many organelles- mitochondria present
  • ATP produced in mitochondria
  • Larger ribosomes
  • May have Undilipodia
  • e.g human liver cell
