Unformatted text preview: on. In addition to the lack of organelles, prokaryotic cells also lack a cytoskeleton. Recall that in addition to its role as structural support for the interior of the cell, the cytoskeleton is also involved in intracellular organelle transport. Since there are no organelles to be transported in prokaryotic cells, such a function is unnecessary. Like the eukaryote cell, the prokaryote cell is filled with cytosol. The prokaryote cytosol is filled with enzymes, which carry out respiratory processes reserved in eukaryotes for the mitochondria. Prokaryote and eukaryote ribosomes also differ slightly, reflect minor differences in prokaryotic versus eukaryotic processing of DNA....
