What is 1 way the DNA of prokaryotic cells differs from that of eukaryotic cells?

In eukariyotes they are in chromosomes.In prokariyotes they are in DNA rings in cytoplasm.


How are prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells alike and diffrent?

Prokaryotic cells have no nuclei and eukaryotic cells have a true nuclei. prokaryotic DNA is circular where eukaryotic DNA is linear.


Is it true or false that prokaryotic cells contain more DNA than eukaryotic cells?

False. Prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells both contain DNA, but eukaryotic cells store their DNA in a nucleus, whereas prokaryotic cells have their DNA everywhere throughout the cell.


Similarities and differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?

Prokaryotic and eukaryotic DNA carry genetic information for the development, functioning and reproduction of prokaryotes and eukaryotes respectively. Eukaryotes consist of membranebound nucleus whereas prokaryotes lack a membrane­bound nucleus. Prokaryotic DNA is double­stranded and circular. But, eukaryotic DNA is double­strand and linear. The amount of DNA in prokaryotic cells is much less than the amount of DNA in eukaryotic cells. Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic DNA undergo replication by the enzyme DNA polymerase. The main difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic DNA is that prokaryotic DNA is found in the cytoplasm whereas eukaryotic DNA is packed into the nucleus of the cell.


Does prokaryotic cells contains DNA?

Prokaryotic cells contain DNA. In eukaryotic cells the DNA is located within the nucleus. DNA


What is the similarity between a eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell?

Both Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic cells carry DNA, have a cell membrane, and contain ribosomes. But Eukaryotic cells carry DNA in their nucleus, while DNA in Prokaryotic cells roam around freelP


The fundamental difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?

eukaryotic cells have a nucleus that holds their DNA. Prokaryotic cells have no nucleus and their DNA floats around the cell. Eukaryotic cells generally have a lot more DNA than prokaryotic cells because prokaryotic cells are a lot less complicated than their counterpart.


Two features of eukaryotic cells that prokaryotic lack?

Eukaryotic cells have a membrane-bound nucleus but prokaryotic cells don't! The DNA in the Prokaryotic cell is in a singe loop but the DNA in the eukaryotic cell is everywhere. Prokaryotic cells don't have membrane-bound organelles.

What is the prominent difference between a prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell?

Location Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA is found in the cytoplasm of prokaryotic cells as well as circular plasmids. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA is found in the nucleus of the cell, inside the chloroplast and mitochondria. Organelle DNA Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA is not found inside organelles. Eukaryotic DNA: Some of the eukaryotic DNA is found inside chloroplast and mitochondria as well. Size Prokaryotic DNA: The size of the DNA is less than 0.1 pg in prokaryotes. Eukaryotic DNA: The size of the DNA is high in eukaryotes, usually more than 1 pg. GC/AT Content Prokaryotic DNA: GC content is more than the AT content. Eukaryotic DNA: AT content is more than 4xGC content. Number of Copies Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA consists of one copy of the genome. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA consists of more than one copies of the genome. Number of Genes Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA contains a small number of genes. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA contains a large number of genes. Number of Chromosomes Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA is organized into a single chromosome. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA is organized into many chromosomes. Circular/Linear Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA is circular. Hence, they do not have ends. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA is linear, containing two ends. Introns Prokaryotic DNA: Introns are absent in prokaryotic DNA. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA consist of introns, interrupting the sequence of the coding region. Nonfunctional DNA Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA contains fewer amounts of nonfunctional DNA. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA contains higher amounts of nonfunctional DNA. Transposons Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA lacks transposons. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA consists of transposons. DNA Replication Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA replication occurs in the cytoplasm. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA replication occurs in the nucleus. Origin of Replication Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic chromosome contains a single origin of replication. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic chromosome contains many origins of replication. Efficiency Prokaryotic DNA: Prokaryotic DNA replication is rapid, 2000 nucleotides are added per second. Eukaryotic DNA: Eukaryotic DNA replication is slow, 100 nucleotides are added per second.

Which of the following is true of their cellular genetics prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?

Eukaryotic DNA is linear, whereas most prokaryotic DNA is circular.


How does the DNA of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells differ?

A prokaryotic cell doesn't have a Nucleus. A eukaryotic cell has a nucleus.


What can be found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?

DNA


Prokaryotic cells considered simpler then eukaryotic cells?

Prokaryotic cells are considered to be simpler than Eukaryotic cells because they have only a single, circular molecule of DNA. Prokaryotic cells do not have nuclei, and the DNA molecule is unconfined within the cell membrane.


Does DNA have prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells?

DNA is a nucleic acid. It is not an organism or creature by itself. However, DNA is the carrier of genetic information contained within both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Therefore, DNA is found within cells.


Do prokaryotic cells contain more DNA than eukaryotic cells?

No


Do eukaryotic cells have more DNA than prokaryotic cells?

Yes


Both eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic cells possess DNA and engage in genetic processes Which of the following is true of their cellular genetics?
