Unicellular (1 entity), lack organelles, and contain a cell wall.
The prokaryotic cell contains no membrane-bound organelles which are independent of the plasma membrane.
The prokaryotic cell has no nucleus
Smaller than a Eukaryotic Cell
Prokaryotic ribosomes are composed of only three kinds of rRNA and about fifty kinds of protein.
Prokaryotic cells have only one organelle: the ribosomes.
Eukaryotic cells have a true nucleus, bound by a double membrane.
Eukaryotic DNA is linear
Eukaryotic cells have membrane-bound organelles.
Larger than prokaryotic cells
A eukaryotic ribosome is composed of five kinds of rRNA and about eighty kinds of proteins.
Eukaryotic has a nucleus, the control center of the cell. This is where the chromosomes (DNA) are stored in a double phospholipid membranes.
The cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells is filled with a large, complex collection of organelles, many of them enclosed in their own membranes
Eukaryotic cells are multicellular (also called animal cells), contain organelles, and lack a cell wall.
They are cells that:
Have cell membranes made of phospholipid chains with cholesterol and proteins crammed in between.
