table below, compare prokaryote and eukaryote cells. Prokaryote Eukaryote 70S (small) ribosomes The nucleoid is naked DNA No mitochondria Cell parts The cell parts float in the cytoplasm Under 10 micrometers in diameter 80S (large) ribosomes True nucleus contains DNA Mitocondria Organelles in discrete membranes Internal membranes enclose organelles 10-15µm in diameter 2. What is the literal meaning of the term eukaryote? The term ‘eukaryote’ means “true nucleus” because it has...

Origin of Eukaryotes Bio 108

Origin of Eukaryotes * The origin of eukaryotes is important to understand the origin of modern complex cells. There are three main separate theories that hypothesize the origins: the three-domain system, eocyte theory, and endosymbiosis. Each one have there own merits and evidence supporting. These theories suggest the evolution of cells from the most primitive prokaryotes, unicellular organism having cells lacking membrane-bound nuclei, to the most complex eukaryotes, single or multicellular...

Organelles of Prokaryote and Eukaryote Cells

Prokaryote Organelles: Nucleoid Region: The region in a prokaryotic cell consisting of a concentrated mass of DNA. (The “nucleus” of a prokaryotic cell) The nucleoid instructs all the organelles on what to do. Ribosome: A cell organelle consisting of RNA and protein organized into two subunits and functioning as the site of protein synthesis in the cytoplasm. The ribosomal subunits are constructed in the nucleolus. (Make proteins from amino acids) The nucleoid controls the ribsomes and specifies...

Eukaryotics Cells

Eukaryotes are organisms whose cells are organized into complex structures by internal membranes and a cytoskeleton. The most characteristic membrane bound structure is the nucleus. This feature gives them their name, (also spelled "eucaryote,") which comes from the Greek word referring to the nucleus. Animals, plants, fungi, and protists are eukaryotes. Microorganisms and all other living organisms are classified as prokaryotes or eukaryotes. Prokaryotes and eukaryotes are distinguished on the...

The Phylogenetic Tree of Life

classified as their own species, Homo neandertalensis. Earlier, giant pandas were also classified with raccoons! Instead of classifying organisms into prokaryote or eukaryote, it sorts them into three categories by splitting the prokaryotes into two kingdoms similar to the six-kingdom model: Archae bacteria and Eubacteria. All the eukaryotes, which is virtually everything else, are clumped into the Eukarya kingdom. Modern chemical and cellular evidence currently supports the three-kingdom model. It is...

Cells are divided into two categories namely the Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes. These two have varying differences between them. Speaking in simple cell biology words, prokaryotes are primitive, simple organisms that lack membranous cell organelles. The opposite of this are eukaryotes, which are advanced and complex organisms having membrane bound cell organelles. Seemingly simple in structure and markedly different from eukaryote and protist organisms, prokaryotic cells are believed to have been...

History of Sex

Main article: Evolution of sexual reproduction It is considered that sexual reproduction in eukaryotes first appeared about a billion years ago and evolved within ancestral single-celled eukaryotes.[2] The reason for the initial evolution of sex, and the reason(s) it has survived to the present, are still matters of debate. Some of the many plausible theories include: that sex creates variation among offspring, sex helps in the spread of advantageous traits, that sex helps in the removal of disadvantageous...

The Prokaryotic Cell

The prokaryotic cell precedes any forms of Bacteria, Archaea, and eventually Eukaryotes by approximately two billion years. This cell was the original life form on the planet and represents the smallest and least complex of all organisms. Through the process of mutation and adaptation they were able to survive to evolve into our modern day Bacteria, Archaea, Fungi and Protists. These post organisms have benefited from their early ancestor, by way of Endosymbiosis. Intricate protest and fungi are...
