The organelle that manages cell functions in a eukaryotic cell is the nucleus. Most eukaryotic cells have a single nucleus; however, some organisms may have several nuclei per cell. More »

Cellular walls, nuclei, vacuole and lysosomes are all examples of cellular organelles. Organelles are broadly classified as either mitochondria or plastids, depending on whether or not they contain DNA. Within a cell, ea... More » Science Biology Cells

Organelles are structures within a cell that have specific functions; membrane-bound organelles are organelles protected by a single or double plasma membrane. Mitochondria, lysosomes, the endoplasmic reticulum and the G... More »

The difference between a cell and an organelle is that an organelle is part of a eukaryotic cell. While a cell is typically considered to be the smallest self-contained part or independently functioning unit of an organi... More »

In a eukaryotic cell, the final stage of protein synthesis takes place in the cytoplasm after the initial stage, which happens in the nucleus. In a prokaryotic cell, there is no need for the second stage of the process. More »

The nucleus can be thought of as the control center of a eukaryotic cell because it contains most of the genetic material that carries the instructions for the cell's operations. Inside the nucleus, DNA directs the seque... More »

According to the National Institute of Health, or NIH, there are actually four stages of the cell cycle of a eukaryotic cell: M phase, G1 phase, S phase and G2 phase. Not all eukaryotic cells complete the cycle at the sa... More »
