Describe a prokaryotic cell.
A cell that doesn't contain a nucleus and has no organelles made of membranes. Most are smaller than eukaryotic cells.
1 of 7
What are the structures that Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells share?
Cytoplasm, ribosomes & cell surface membrane.
2 of 7
What structures are never found in a Prokaryotic cell but found in an Eukaryotic cell?
Nucleus, nucleolus, nuclear envelope, mitochondria, Golgi apparatus, chloroplasts, cilia, vacuoles.
3 of 7
Name the structure that's only found in Prokaryotic cells.
Ring on DNA (sometimes called bacterial chromosomes).
4 of 7
Name the structures that are found in SOME prokaryotic cells
Small rings of DNA known as plasmids; pili (small projections from the surface); slimy outer capsule, flagellum (not built of microtubules)
5 of 7
What are the similarities between the structure of a plant cell and an animal cell?
Both have a cell membrane, mitochondria, ER, golgi apparatus.
6 of 7
What do plant cells have that animal cells don't?
Cell walls, chloroplasts, centrioles & large central vacuoles.
