Eukaryotic vs Prokaryotic Cells

Prokaryotes reproduce asexually or by them selves. Cytosol a grainy appearance because ribbosomes are found freely throughout the cytosol. Fungi are also eukaryotes.Humans are eukaryotes, including plants and animalsEukaryotes also have a flagella or tail like structures that are made up of microtubules.

Prokaryotic cells are organisms without a cell nucleus, or any other membrane-bound organelle. Most are unicellular, but some prokaryotes are multicellular.

Eukaryotic cells are single-celled or multicellular organism whose cells contain a distinct membrane bound nucleus.

Prokaryote genes are also expressed in groups known as operons instead of individually as in eukaryotes.

Prokarotic cells have no nucleus.Eukaryotic cells have more then one chromosomes.Prokaryotic cells are bacteria and eukaryotic cells are plant and animal cells.Prokaryotes have a larger surface area to volume ratio given them a higher metabolic rate them higher growth rate and consequently a shorter genertion time compared to eukaryotes.The difference in the cell structure of prokaryotes and eukaryotes is it includes the presence of of mitochondria and chloplast,the structure of chromosomal DNA.Eukaryotic cells contain membrane-bound organelles, such as the nucleus, while prokaqryotic cells do not.Eukaryotes are typically 10-100 mm in diameter. Prokaryotic cells are much smaller than eukayotic cells.Prokaryotes are 0.2-2.0 mm in diameter.Eukaryotes contain meiosis for sexual reproduction.
