As in all animal cells, the cells of the human cheek do not possess a cell wall. A cell membrane that is semi-permeable surrounds the cytoplasm. Unlike plant cells, the cytoplasm in an animal cell is denser, granular and occupies a larger space. The vacuole in an an animal cell is smaller in size, or absent.
Are human epithelial cells prokaryotic or eukaryotic?
This contrasts with the smaller, simpler cells of prokaryotes like bacteria. All eukaryotes have membrane-bound organelles, structures that work as sort of organs for the cells. This includes a large, membrane-bound nucleus, chromosomes and the Golgi apparatus, all found in both humans and onions.
Are elodea leaf cells prokaryotic or eukaryotic?
It is eukaryotic- this is fairly simple, as most multicellular organisms are eukaryotic. All that means is that it has membrane bound organelles (like the nucleus, chloroplast and mitochondria). Prokaryotes are generally single celled, like bacteria.
