Prokaryotic & Eukaryotic Cells

TermDefinition
Cell Types Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic
Prokaryotic An organism whose cells do not have an enclosed nucleus, such as bacteria.
Eukaryotic A cell characterized by the presence of a nucleus and other membrane-bound organelles. Eukaryotes can be unicellular (protists) or multicellular (fungi, plants and animals).
Nucleus A part of the cell containing DNA and RNA and responsible for growth and reproduction
Organelles A tiny cell structures that carries out a specific function within the cell
Unicellular A single celled organism
Multicellular An organism made up of more than one cell
Cell Size Smaller cells are more efficient than large ones due to large cells being limited by surface area to volume ratio
DNA Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) is a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information.
Reproduction The process of producing offspring
