Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells

Postby srk17 » Fri Jul 16, 2010 9:35 am

I don't really understand the which organelles are present in each of the two cells and the function of each organelle. Could someone please help me out, maybe by typing out short notes? Thank you loads:)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organelle

Opting for the easy answer with a wiki entry. :mrgreen:
Maybe if you tell us what you already have,
we can add to the list for you (instead of the whole list for you).

Hey,
Sorry about that. I have most of the info on the organelles in a eukaryotic cell, but none on the organelles in a prokaryotic cell.
The organelles I do not know about in eukaryotic cells are...
Lysosome
Peroxisome
Centriole
Centrosome
Secretary Vesicle
cell membrane
Vacuole
Chloroplast
Cytoskeleton

In Prokaryotic cells...
Storage Granules
Endospore
Capsule
Outer membrane
cell wall
Periplasmic space
Plasma membrane
Flagella
Pili

Thank you.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

They're not really organelles, but i guess you could refer to them as a part of the cell?

I think, organelles and 'a part of the cell' can be different, cause an organelle is a structure within the cell and 'a part of the cell' can be anywhere, even outside the cell, but attached to it like the flagella or the cells wall.

so, why do you list them as organelles?
