Eukaryotic cells differ from prokaryotic cells in a number of ways, notably in size, complexity and cooperative behavior. The division between eukaryotes and prokaryotes is the deepest divide in nature, with two domains ... More »

The main difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells is that eukayrotic cells have a nucleus and membrane-bound organelles, while prokaryotic cells lack these structures. Prokaryotic cells are the simplest of all... More »

Some common features found in prokaryotes and eukaryotes are that they have cell plasma membranes, cytoplasm, DNA and ribosomes. Prokaryotes include organisms like bacteria and cynobacteria while algae, fungi and protozo... More »

Another name for prokaryotic cells is prokaryotes, simple life forms that consist of the kingdoms of Monera and Archaea. Prokaryotic is Greek for "before nucleus." More »

According to the University of Maryland, prokaryotic cells are around 10 to 100 times smaller than eukaryotic cells. Prokaryotic cells have a cell wall that is chemically complex. Eukaryotic cells have a very simple cell... More » Science Biology Cells

Mitosis is the process where one cell divides into two cells with the same number of chromosomes as the original cell, while meiosis is the process where one cell divides into four cells with half the number of chromosom... More » Science Biology Cells

Eukaryotic cells have organelles, membrane-bound structures that perform different functions in the cell, and prokaryotic cells do not. Some typical eukaryotic organelles include the nucleus, mitochondria, ribosomes, Gol... More »
