Homework Help: Biology

Posted by mysterychicken on Monday, February 1, 2010 at 2:39pm.

b) Identify one similar and one different way each type of cell [prokaryote and eukaryote] uses flagella.

My answer:

In both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, flagella protrude from the cell's surface and enable movement. Prokaryotic flagella rotate, propelling the organism through its environment at speeds of up to 20 cell lengths per second, which is also done in the eukaryotic cells. There are, however, some differences in how each cell uses flagella. In a eukaryotic cell, flagella moves substances across the cell's surface, something not done in a prokaryotic cell.

Is this OK?

Thanks
