SCI 230 Week 2 Day 4 Assignment: DQ 2 Describe two similarities and two differences between eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic cells. Why do you think eukaryotic cells developed? Describe how eukaryotic cells are similar to a production line Both Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes have a plasma membrane. This plasma membrane acts as a barrier between what is inside a cell and what is outside. It chooses what to let inside. Both Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes have cytoplasm/cytosol. This is made up mostly of water and forms the liquid inside of a cell. This is where cellular activity happens. Some Prokaryote cells have a capsule. This capsule forms a layer of protection for the cell. It can also give a Prokaryote cell certain characteristics. Eukaryote cells do not have a capsule. Eukaryote cells have mitochondria. These are the energy organelles of the cell. This is where

Unformatted text preview: most of the energy reactions of a Eukaryote cell occur. Prokaryote cells do not have mitochondria. Eukaryote cells developed from Prokaryote cells through the evolution of multi celled organisms needing more complex functions. Eukaryote cells are similar to a production line because there are different stages of organelles in the cell which at to carry out different, yet specific functions much as a production line does.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
