Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes Prokaryotic cells, which are primarily bacteria, consist of a single compartment containing DNA, RNA, proteins, and small molecules encapsulated by a plasma membrane, which is enclosed by a cell wall Eukaryotic cells, including fungus, plant cells, and animal cells, have a nucleus containing DNA and enclosed by a plasma membrane. Additionally, the cytoplasm contains many organelles also enclosed by a plasma membrane YOU CARRY OATS
