Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells

HideShow resource information

Prokaryotic cells

-bacteria and cyanobacteria

-prokaryotic cells contain no nuclei, or membrane bound organelles.

- very small

-Dna lies free in the cytoplasm in a circular shape.

- HAVE CELL WALLS, unlike eukaryotic cells.


Ribosomes, circular dna, cell surface membrane, CELL WALL, cytoplasm, flagellum (tail), pili (on outside of cell), capsule (slimy surface layer to protect and prevent dehydration), plasmid (circle of DNA).

in one area of the prokaryotic cell, the cell surface membrane folds inwards. this is the site of respiration.

Eukaryotic cells

- eukaryotic cells are found in all other…
