How to Cite This SparkNote

Problem : Fill in the blank. Prokaryotic cells differ structurally from eukaryotic cells because they lack membrane-bound __________.

Organelles.

Problem : Fill in the blank. Eukaryotic cells are more complex __________, but prokaryotic cells are more complex ____________.

Structurally. Chemically.

Problem : What structures of a cell that we have discussed are conserved between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?

The cell membrane in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells have the same structure. Additionally, prokaryotic cells also contain cytosol in its cytoplasm.

Problem : Are multi-cellular organisms more likely to be prokaryotic or eukaryotic?

Eukaryotic.

Problem : What is a reason for the lack of a cytoskeleton in prokaryotic cells?

The cytoskeleton functions in eukaryotic cells in intracellular organelle transport. Since prokaryotic cells do not have organelles, this function is unnecessary.
