question about prokaryotes vs eukaryotes.

Post by narutodemonkill » Fri Feb 19, 2010 1:44 am

Eukarotes have dedicated structures fro protein secretion( ribosomes), lipid synthesis)?), photosynthesis(chloroplast), and respiration(?)
the membrane surrounding each organelle plays and essential role in the functions they carry out.

One might therefore conclude that if a membrane needs to be involved in these functions in eukaryotic cells, a membrane will also be necessary for these functions in prokaryotic cells. So where do you think these four essential cellular functions would occur in bacterial and archaeal cells

I have no clue i can guess the plasma membrane?

so this means aerobic heterotrophy protein synthese lipid synthesis and photosynthesis all can occur in prokaryotes?
like bacteria.

Yes, they can use the plasma membrane, which can sometime form some infolding (some sacs, which could resemble eukaryot organelles). The others probably take place in cytosol

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
