Differences between Prokaryotic cell and Eukaryotic cell:

Prokaryotic cell

(1)Size and structure: Very minute and simple

(2) Nucleus: Only DNA is present nuclear membrane nucleolus are absent

(3) Organelles: Only ribosome is present in cytoplasm and all other organelles are absent.

(4) Photo-synthesis: For photosynthesis, well organized plastid is absent.

(5) Cell division: Cell division occurs by fission or binary fission method. Spindle apparatus is not formed.

(6) Example: Bacteria, cells of blue green algae

 

Eukaryotic cell

(1)Size and structure: Comparatively large and complex

(2) Nucleus: Comparatively distinct, well developed and nuclear membrane and nucleolus are present

(3) Organelles: All living organelles are present.

(4) Photo-synthesis: Photosynthesis occurs with the help of complex organelle, called plastid.

(5) Cell division: Body cell undergoes mitotic division and spindle apparatus is formed

(6) Example: All higher types of plants and animals.
