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 »

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 »

Human epithelial cells, which are animal cells, and elodea cells, which are plant cells, share many structures because both are eukaryotic cells, or cells with a membrane-bound nucleus. Common structures in animal and pl... 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

Prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells have multiple features in common, including the use of DNA to code for proteins, RNA for translation into proteins and ribosomes to read the RNA. Both types also share such basic ce... More »

Animal cells are eukaryotic cells, or cells that contain a membrane-bound nucleus. The nucleus holds the DNA of the cell that provides the cell with instructions for life. More »
