Are all eukaryotic cells found in large animals?
At the highest level of biological classification, there are three "Domains": Bacteria,Archaea, and Eukarya.
Bacteria and Archaea are prokaryotes - but Eukarya are Eukaryotes.
Eukarya contains four "Kingdoms": Animalia, Plantae, Fungi and Protista.
Animalia is all animals, plantae is all plants, fungi is all fungi, and protista is single-celled eukaryotes (like amoebae, paramecia, euglena, etc.)
So while all large animals are made of eukaryotic cells, not all eukaryotes are animals.
They generally are due to the fact that they are much more complex than prokaryotic cells, but there are some very small Eukaroytic cells (such as the sperm: 40 microns), that are smaller than some large Prokaryotic cells (the largest found so far is 660 microns long). As a rule of thumb, though, Eukaryotic cells are larger than Prokaryotic cells.
Basic cells could be animal and plant, or eukaryotic and prokaryotic. Animals cells are contained by a cell membrane, and have lysosomes and peroxisomes filled with digestive enzymes. Plant cells have a rigid cell wall for structure, as well as a large central vacuole (a storage sac), and plastids (including chloroplasts, chromoplasts, and amyloplasts) to photosynthesize and store energy. Eukaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus. Prokaryotic cells do have a nucleus and are…
Describe how eukaryotic cells are able to keep such large amounts of DNA in the small volume of the cell nucleus?
A eukaryote is an organism whose cells contain complex structures enclosed within membranes. The defining membrane-bound structure that sets eukaryotic cells apart from prokaryotic cells is the nucleus, or nuclear envelope, within which the genetic material is carried. The presence of a nucleus gives eukaryotes their name, which comes from the Greek ευ (eu, "good") and κάρυον (karyon, "nut" or "kernel"). Most eukaryotic cells also contain other membrane-bound organelles such as mitochondria, chloroplasts and the…
Vacuoles are found in plant and fungal cells because sometimes the vacuoles act like lysosomes. A vacuole is a vesicle. They contain enzymes that help a cell digest particles. The large central vacuole in plant cells stores water and other liquids. Large vacuoles full of water help support the cell. Some plants wilt when their vacuoles lose water.
1. You mean eukaryotic, not eularyotic. 2. All animal DNA is eukaryotic, but not all eukaryotic DNA is animal. A eukaryote is an organism whose cells contain complex structures inside the membranes. The presence of a nucleus gives eukaryotes their name, which comes from the Greek ευ (eu, "good", "noble" & "true") and κάρυον (karyon, "nut" & "kernel"). Most eukaryotic cells also contain other membrane-bound organelles such as mitochondria, chloroplasts and the Golgi apparatus. Almost…
