Cell Theory

All living things are composed of cells, they are the basic unit of structure and function, and cells can only be produced by other cells

Types of cells

-Prokaryotic cells are bacteria, they have no membrane and a bound nucleus, although they do have DNA they are smaller, less evolved, less complex and older than most cells.


-Eukaryotic cells are basically anything that is not bacteria, such as plants, animals, fungi, and Protista. Eukaryotic cells have their DNA stored in their nucleus, they are are also larger, more evolved, and more complex.


-There are some things that plant cells have that animal cells don't and some things that animals cells have and plant cells don't. Some things that a plant cell has that an animal cell doesn't is that they have a cell wall and a chloroplast. Yet plant cells have a large central vacuole, animal cells do too, but theirs is a lot smaller and is used for storage. Also animal cells have centrioles which help in cell division, a plant cell does not have this because they have a cell wall and membrane.

Differences and Similarities between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cells

Some things that both of these types of cells is that they both have DNA in them, also both of them have cell membranes, and both types of cells have a cytoplasm.
