Prokaryotes do not have mitochondria. A prokaryote is a cell that does not contain membrane-bound structures called organelles. A mitochondrion is an organelle, but because prokaryotes do not have organelles, they do not... More »

Prokaryotes do not contain an organized nucleus that holds all of their DNA. Instead, prokaryotes have DNA cells floating throughout their cytoplasm. Eukaryotes do contain an organized nucleus. More » Science Biology Cells

Prokaryotic cells contain ribosomes to handle their protein production. The ribosomes in prokaryotic cells, such as bacteria, are free floating in the cytosol of the cell rather than bound inside a nuclear membrane; this... 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 »

The primary difference between protists and monerans is that protists are eukaryotic while monerans are prokaryotes. Protists, such as amoebae, are thus more closely related to humans than they are to monerans, such as b... More »

Bacteria and protozoa are very distantly related, with bacteria classified as prokaryotes and protists as eukaryotes. This means that protozoa are more closely related to humans than either is to bacteria. The two organi... More »

In both eukaryotes and prokaryotes, glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell. Glycolysis is the first step of cellular respiration, which has 10 steps in all. More »
