Organisms can be Prokaryotes or Eukaryotes.

PROKARYOTES- Are smaller and simpler than Eukaryotes eg. bacteria. Is a single celled organism.

EUKARYOTES- Are complex and include all animal and plant cells. They are made up of eukaryotic cells

Animal cells contain:

  • Nucleus- contains genetic information that controls the activity of the cell
  • Cytoplasm- where most chemical reactions happen, contains enzymes that control them
  • Cell Membrane- hold the cell together and conrols what goes in and out
  • Mitochndria- where reactions for aerobic respiration take place
  • Ribsomes- where proteins are made

Plant cells contain all of the above +:

  • Cell wall- supports te cell and strengthens it
  • Permanant Vacuole- contains cell spa
  • Chloroplasts- where photosynthesis occurs making food for the plant
  • Chlorophll- inside the chloroplasts and they absorb thr light needed gfor photosynthesis

Bacteria cells:

They are much smaller then the other cells because they are prokaryotic. It contains:

  • Cell Membrane
  • Cell Wall
  • Single strand of DNA
  • Plasmids- one or more small rings of…
