Difference Between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cell

Fig: Plant CellDifference Between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cell:

1) It is believed that prokaryotic cells are the most primitive cells. Eukaryotes have been evolved from the prokaryotes.

2) Prokaryotic cells are unicellular organisms. Eukaryotes may be either unicellular or multicellular organisms. Eukaryotes are of four types: animals, plants, fungi, and protists. Protists (such as protozoa, some algae) and fungi are usually unicellular whereas animals and plants are multicellular.

3) Prokaryotes lack membrane-bound organelles. Eukaryotes has membrane-bound organelles that means there are separate compartments for metabolic functions.

4) Prokaryotes has nucleoid which is called as “false nucleus” which means lacks an envelope-enclosed nucleus. Therefore, chromosome located the nucleoid. Eukaryotes has nucleus which is enclosed by nuclear membrane. It contains genetic material of cell which is organized DNA molecules that form chromosomes.
