prokartotes

Post by Avishek890 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 6:13 am

do prokaryotic cells have organelles???
by definition they have no membrane bound organelles but i think they dont have any at all. i think that the whole cell can be consisdered as a specialised organelle. endosymbiosis also suggests that chloroplast and mitochodria organelles in eukaryotes are actually prokaryotes. thus i do not think that prokaryotes have organelles. can anyone please support my suggestion or oppose it with evidence??

That depends on whether or not you consider ribosomes to be organelles.

also, they have some some membrane cavities (sorry, I don't remember the actual name) and the DNA is not that freely in the cytosol, but rather in something called nucleoid.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

There is also the thylakoid membrane of a cyanobacterium which might qualify, but whether or not to call that an organelle would likely ignite semantic argument.
