Most cells cannot be seen without a microscope Plant and animal cells typically require a magnifcation oF about 100X to visualize Bacteria, the smallest oF cells require 1000X Pro Before karyotes Karyon (Greek) for nut or kernel; i.e. the nucleus is the “kernel” or center of the cell. Much smaller cells that lack a ____________ Nucleus Fungi, Plant & Animal Cells Eu New karyotes Karyon (Greek) for nut or kernel; i.e. the nucleus is the “kernel” or center of the cell. Much larger cells that possess a ____________ Nucleus and membrane bound organelles.
