List 2 ways in which prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells are alike and 2 ways in which they are different.
Is this correct?
Alike= cell membrane and DNA
Different=ribosomes and mitochondria
Try some of the following links for information:
1. alike = http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=mcafee&p=ways+in+which+prokaryotic+%26+eukarytic+cells+are+alike
2. different = http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=mcafee&p=ways+in+which+prokaryotic+%26+eukarytic+cells+are++different
Actually their DNAs are not necessarily alike. The DNA of eukaryocytes are enclosed with an endomembrane while the prokaryocytes' are not.
The fact that they both have DNA is a similarity but the DNA does actually differ in that like Amy said above and that prokaryotic DNA is linear and eukaryotic DNA is typically circular wrapped around histone proteins. And prokaryotic cells do not have organelles in general, not just ribosomes and mitochondria.
