Are Cytosol found in Eukaryote?

Cytosol is the liquid "goo" inside a cell, and I can't think of any (eukaryotic or prokaryotic) that don't have cytosol. So yes, eukaryotic cells do contain cytosol.

Where in a cell does aerobic respiration occur?

Aerobic respiration starts in the cytosol and then continues in the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells (and in the cytosol of prokaryotic cells).

Name 4 components found in the prokaryotic cell?

External structures of a prokaryotic cell include glycocalyces, flagella, fimbriae, and pili. Most prokaryotic cells have a cell wall. Prokaryotic cells have a cytoplasmic membrane, cytosol, and inclusions. The nonmembranous organelles found in a prokaryotic cell are ribosomes and the cytoskeleton.

Which parts of the cell are prokaryotic?

If a cell is prokaryotic, the whole cell is prokaryotic. A cell cannot be partially prokaryotic because it cannot only have part of s nucleus

What is the function of a cytosol?

The cytosol contains the cytoskeleton which gives the cell its shape and can help in the movement of the cell. The cytosol has no single function and is instead the site of a wide variety of cell processes. The function is to save the cell from dirt and germs.
