What does it mean to say that the eukaryotic cell is compartmentalized?
Compartmentalization allows each compartment to perform specific functions without interference from other cell functions. For example, lysosomes can break down cell debris in a compartment without accidentally digesting the cell itself.
It also allow enzymes and substrates to reach higher concentrations than if everything was diluted by the entire cytoplasm. For example, the mitochondria accumulates a large electron gradient in order for the electron transport chain to work.
I'm not sure what u mean by sacs... But a Eukaryotic cell is a type of cell which contains cell organelles. The sacs which you may be referring to could be Vacuoles which are waste storage areas in found in some plant cells. Actually(I looked it up on Google) the correct answer is Vesicles. I don't know exactly what they are but I'm sure it will say on Google.
Animal cells have a cell wall and therefore are eukaryotic. No, just no, can I say no again? Plant cells are the one with a cell wall. Learn your basic biology between plant and animal cells before even attempting to answer question. Animal cells have a nucleus, that is what makes them eukaryotic. Bacteria do not have a nucleus, and are prokaryotic.
Animal cells and plant cells are both eukaryotic cells, which contain membrane-bound organelles and house their genomes in a nucleus. Bacteria are prokaryotic organisms and do not have such features. To say a eukaryotic cell is a plant or animal cell is a distinction made based on what organism the cell came from.
I would say so. In a eukaryotic cell,the DNA is surrounded by the nuclear membrane, which makes it harder. In a prokaryotic cell, the DNA is simply suspended in nucleoid region, which makes locating and extracting far easier. BUT, realize that most prokaryotic cells are surrounded by a cell wall, which can be tough to get through.
prokaryotes are generally unicellular organisms like bacteria and eukaryotic cells are the ones found in complex organisms like humans. in the prokaryotic cell the chromatin material i.e. the DNA or RNA is not enclosed in a nucleus but it is just dispersed in the cytoplasm. so we say prokaryotic cells lack nuclear membrane. on the other hand observation under electron microscope has shown that eukaryotic cells have a nuclear envelope enclosing the nucleolus and the…
This is what wikipedia has to say: "Although no mechanism for their development, presumably from prokaryotic cells, has been suggested, the origin of the eukaryotic cell is considered a milestone in the evolution of life, since they include all complex cells and almost all multi-cellular organisms". Also, check out their article on the endosymbiosis theory below:
In a cell there is a part that has a specific job (nucleus=control center) just like a human (brain=controlls actions of body) __________________________________________________________________ Actually you cant say they are similar but humans are made of cells, trillions of them, and the type of cell is eukaryotic so we are eukaryotes and eukaryote is a type and there is only one other type known and that is the prokaryote which was the first cell.
1. Nucleus. The main difference is that eukaryotic cells have a nucleus and prokaryotic cells do not. That is really the meaning of the words prokaryotic (before nucleus) and eukaryotic (true nucleus). 2. Organelles. Eukaryotic cells have membrane-bound organelles and prokaryotic cells do not. I say membrane-bound organelles (mitochondrion, lysosomes) because both have ribosomes, which in come texts are considered organelles, but ribosomes are not membrane-bound (surrounded by a membrane). 3. Size. Eukaryotic cells are…
"Cell" as in a cell of your body in Spanish is "célula." It is pronounced, "SAY-loo-lah." If what you mean is a prison cell, the word is "celda." It is pronounced, "SELL-dah." If you want to say "cell phone," the words are "teléfono celular." It is pronounced, "teh-LAY-fo-no seh-loo-LAR." Sites such as learn-spanish.co.il provide audio pronunciations of many common Spanish words.
