A bacterial cell contains about 10,000 ribosomes which co up to 30% of the weight of the bacterium.

In contrast to most eukaryote ribosomes, the bacterial ribosomes do not appear to be attached to internal cell membranes, but are found free in the cytoplasm.

In functionally, active bacteria the cytoplasm is packed -with free and randomly distributed ribosomes.

This dense packing may mask any attachment to internal membranes.

Strings of ribosomes have been found loosely attached to the inside of the plasma membrane.

Does bacteria cell contain another bacteria?

No, bacteria can not endocytosise another bacteria. bacteria contains cell wall, DNA called nucleoid and cytoplasm. Bacteria can make its own proteins by its ribosomes..No, they do not. They are not large enough for more bacteria inside.

How does a bacteria cell differ from plant or animal cells?

A bacteria cell differs structurally from plant and animal cells because of its small size. A bacteria cell has flagella outside of the cell to help it move. A bacteria cell does not contain organelles. Only the chromosome and sometimes ribosomes are visible in a bacteria cell.

Are ribosomes present in bacteria?

Yes, ribosomes are present in bacteria.

Do bacteria have organelles?

Yes, they have Ribosomes. ^I do not want to change the answer to no because I am not 100% sure of it, but I do know that Ribosomes are not considered organelles. Ribosomes are proteins that are free floating in bacteria. Organelles are usually specialized, membrane-bound features of a cell.

What is the function of ribosomes in bacteria?

The ribosomes in bacteria are the site of protein synthesis.
