We will be making a detailed study of cells right now. The only thing that we want to concentrate on right now is the fact that cells come in two basic types: prokaryotic (pro’ kehr ee aht’ ik) and eukaryotic (yoo’ kehr ee aht’ ik). * Prokaryotic cell – A cell that has no distinct, membrane-bounded organelles * Eukaryotic cell – A cell with distinct, membrane-bounded organelles
Now of course, these definitions mean nothing unless you know what organelles (or guh nelz’) are and what “membrane-bounded” means. In order to live, a cell must perform certain functions. As two of our criteria for life say, living things must have an energy conversion mechanism as well as reproductive capacity. In order to carry out these functions, cells must complete many different tasks. In eukaryotic cells, the individual tasks needed to complete the functions of life are carried...
