TOPIC 3: EUKARYOTES: TWO FUNDAMENTAL PROPOSITIONS TOPIC 3: Power Point Format Eukaryotes have a membrane bound nucleus and are structurally more complex than prokaryotes Eukaryotes are partially compartmentalized into smaller functional units called organelles Study 74 - 98 You will see more of this in the later molecular biology section. Also, the more work you do now, the less anxiety you will feel come early April. We looked at something of the diversity of organisms and cells, and in particular, the huge differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes and the immense differences within the prokaryotes. This lecture explores some of the similarities and differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Most of the structures seen will be encountered again at some later date but for now you should be able to describe what each of the following are, and what their 'primary' function is associated with. (e.g. lysosomes: — small, irregularly shaped organelles in which intracellular digestion occurs): nucleus, plasma (cell) membrane or plasmalemma, mitochondria, nuclear envelope, nucleolus, chloroplast, ribosome, endoplasmic reticulum (ER), Golgi complex (apparatus), cytoskeletal elements (microfilaments,
